Others, however, concluded that diabetes mellitus per se does not cause an abnormal external pancreatic secretion and considered such findings to be due to either associated pancreatitis or tumor of the pancreas (5-6). In the present investigation, we studied external secretory function of pancreas after the injection of pancreozymin and secretin
