What will happen if a person's pancreas has to be removed or it is completly damaged?

Asked by ambahanda 19th March 2010, 10:20 PM
Answered by Expert


A person whose pancreas is completely removed, will have to take pancreatic enzyme supplements and insulin. The pancreatic enzyme supplements are needed for proper digestion to take place.

Such a person cannot make his own insulin and hence will quickly develop diabetes if insulin is not regularly introduced into the body.
