Many factors have to play together to keep our digestion in balance -- food, water, pancreatic enzymes, insulin, and many other factors that most of us are not aware of!  People with pancreatic cysts and tumors may find that the products of the pancreas are not being delivered to the digestive tract, causing bloating, discomfort, diarrhea, or inability to digest particular kinds of foods (eg fats).

Tina Gruner is a Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietitian who has worked with people with cystic fibrosis, pancreatic insuffiency, diabetes, and many other such imbalances.  She talks with Joyce about how people can find the help they need to analyze and correct these imbalances and improve their quality of life.
