DIY Pioneer Dana Lewis was diagnosed with something called EPI – exocrine pancreatic insufficiency a couple of years ago. She’d never heard of it and was shocked to find out diabetes is considered a common co-condition. In fact, 20-30 percent of people with diabetes can end up with EPI. EPI can cause a lot of discomfort and stomach issues – and health issues if left untreated. Of course, Dana jumped in, publishing a review of studies and now- creating studies of her own. She’ll explain what she’s doing, why she needs your help, and more about this condition that doesn’t get much attention.
