In brief: Usually not
By the time diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis is made, there is usually scarring of the pancreas and decline in function of the gland.
There may be damage to both the exocrine part involved in digestion and endocrine part leading to diabetes. Whether there is further of continuing damage would depend on the cause and interventions taken.
