Post-pancreatitis diabetes mellitus ( PPDM) is a common consequence of chronic pancreatitis (CP). However, patients with PPDM are often misclassified as type 2 diabetics. However, clinically significant complications may be more frequent in PPDM, and insulin and metformin are prescribed more often, suggesting a more aggressive phenotype than in T2DM. Greater awareness of PPDM is needed to optimize disease management.
