  • Summer-ready: Feeling good about your GI symptoms

    (BPT) - With summer in full swing, people across the country are hitting the beaches, pools and barbeques, sipping lemonade and sporting shorts.

What they might not realize, though, is that they don’t have to suffer in silence. These symptoms could be caused by an under-recognized and underdiagnosed condition known as exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI), which is manageable with the right treatment plan prescribed by a doctor.
