1. Recurrent abdominal pain radiating to back, lasting hrs to days, precipitated by alcohol.
2. Steatorrhea when 90% of pancreas is destroyed. Increase protein in diet without complications. Increased fat intake will cause further increase in diarrhea.

4. Vitamin B12 malabsorption: due to decreased secretion of trypsin. B12 combines with a R-protein in the stomach. If not cleaved by trypsin, it will not bind with IF. Then can not be absorbed in the terminal ileum
