If by insufficient pancreas you are referring to insufficient pancreatic enzyme production, you may want to speak with your doctor about supplementation with pancreatic enzymes which will often lead to improved digestion, especially of fats.

However, if your current symptoms are due to pancreatitis, your doc will probably suggest you start off with a liquid diet and then slowly transition to more solid food over time. He/she will also probably tell you that you need to adopt a very low fat diet, or other specialized form of eating habits. Once you can have more solid food, that would be the time to add the supplementary enzymes.
