i have the same doubt regarding chronic pancreatitis.
serum IRT are definitely raised in new borns with Cystic Fibrosis but there are contraindicating reports about levels in chronic pancreatitis.some say it is raised only in acute inflammation of chronic pancreatitis and otherwise they are subnormal.
does anyone have a better picture about it?

Acute pancreatitis sees increased levels of enzymes but chronic inflammation sees destruction that causes the inability of cells to make enzymes so in chronic the levels are decreased.
