Metabolic abnormalities due to acute and chronic pancreatitis are common. In particular, post-pancreatitis diabetes mellitus (PPDM) is increasingly recognized as a distinct clinical entity. However, most of the research in this field is focused on unravelling the pathogenesis of PPDM whereas research frontiers are rarely extended to reducing the risk of new onset diabetes after pancreatitis (NODAP). The recent development and validation of the PERSEUS score paved the way to identifying individuals after acute pancreatitis who are at high risk of developing NODAP. This article discusses the PERSEUS score and other evidence that may inform the development of guidelines on reducing the burden of PPDM.


KEY WORDS: Diabetes mellitus - Pancreatitis - Prevention and control - Hyperglycemia
