EPI Symptoms Quiz
Use this to prepare for your next appointment
This one-page discussion guide has the same questions as the symptom quiz. You can fill it out and bring it with you the next time you see your doctor.
Remember—you can ask your doctor questions, too
Your doctor may ask you questions about what you’re experiencing, but the conversation should go both ways. Asking your doctor questions and opening up will help get you the answers you need.
Some questions you might want to ask include:
- Could something I’m eating or taking be causing my symptoms?
- What could I do to improve my symptoms?
- Is it possible I have a gastrointestinal (GI) condition?
- 4Could it be EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency)?
- 5What are my treatment options?
