Default Chronic Pancreatitis

A 56-year-old man with a history of alcohol abuse is diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis. He is advised to avoid alcohol and is prescribed a low fat (less than 20 g/day) diet and pancreatic enzyme supplements. One month later, he returns, complaining of fatigue and loss of weight. You suspect calorie deficit and poor response to the enzyme supplements. Which of these may be helpful in treating the patient’s new complaints?

1)
Very short-chain triglycerides
2)
Short chain triglycerides
3)
Medium-chain triglycerides
4)
Long-chain triglycerides
5)

3) Medium-chain triglycerides

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats with an unusual chemical structure that allows the body to digest them easily. Most fats are broken down in the intestine and remade into a special form that can be transported in the blood. But MCTs are absorbed intact and taken to the liver, where they are used directly for energy. In this sense, they are processed very similarly to carbohydrates.
