Diabetes


Type 3c Diabetes

We worked with the Nutrition Interest Group of the Pancreatic Society (NIGPS) to produce two resources about Type 3c diabetes. This is also known as Pancreatogenic Diabetes or Secondary Diabetes. It’s a type of diabetes that’s caused by surgical removal of all or part of the pancreas, or by damage to the pancreas, for example by pancreatic cancer.

These resources are designed for you to use with your patients. The first is for people with a reduced appetite or who have lost weight, who are aiming to put weight on, and/or recovering from surgery. The second is for people who have a good appetite, are aiming to maintain or reduce their weight, and are not recovering from surgery.
