Brief Answer:
It will be good as an addition to your diet.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

Buttermilk would be good addition to diet in chronic pancreatitis. It contains proteins, lecitine, vitamins. It does not contain much fat so you should not have problems with digesting it. If you take Creone, no need to modify the dosage. It does not contain much sugars either so it wont affect your diabetes.

Buttermilk can be a part of diet but for sure it can not be the only ingredient of diet. You need proper amount of proteins and fats to maintain healt and balanced nutrition.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
