Aim. We studied the relation between diabetes mellitus and the exocrine portion of the pancreas.
Methods. This investigation has been carried out on diabetes with pancreatic cancer.
Results. The data obtained in the group with pancreatic cancer showed that amylasemia and lipasemia in all diabetic patients was lower than levels in the non-diabetic group.
Conclusions. These results suggest that diabetes mellitus has an important role in the etiology of pancretic. It seems that the evolution is conditioned by the existence of the complications accompanying diabetes mellitus which represent an additional risk factor. In diabetes subjects exists a exocrine pancreopathy correlated to diabetes mellitus.
