Creon 10 Description

If your pancreas is not working properly due to exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) from cystic fibrosis or chronic pancreatitis, or if you have had some or your entire pancreas removed, you will need a pancreatic enzyme supplement to help digest food. Creon 10 contains three enzymes that improve your nutritional status by enabling you to digest food so you benefit from important nutrients instead of having them pass through your body without being used. The three enzymes in Creon 10 are known as amylase, lipase, and protease and work together to help your intestines absorb fats and proteins.

How Each of These Enzymes Work to Help Digest Your Meals

Amylase breaks down starch from the foods you eat and it is found in your saliva and the pancreatic juices that are secreted into the short part of the small intestine that connects to your stomach. Lipase is a water soluble enzyme produced in other parts of your body, but mostly in your pancreas. This enzyme breaks down fats so they can be absorbed by your intestine. Protease has several jobs to perform. The main job is as a digestive enzyme that processes protein so your body can digest it.

Conditions Treated by Creon 10

Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency occurs more commonly in adults with chronic pancreatitis (CP) that can be the result of alcohol abuse, autoimmune diseases, gallstones, or cystic fibrosis. CP involves continual bouts of inflammation that can result in irreversible damage to your pancreas, which includes the cells responsible for secreting the digestive enzymes and the cells that produce insulin.

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition that leads to a constant build-up of sticky mucus produced throughout your body by certain organs, most notably in your lungs and digestive system, including your pancreas. EPI can develop because of your pancreas’ failure to be able to produce the required enzymes you need for digesting the foods you eat.

Before You are Prescribed Creon 10

Ask your doctor about the safety of taking Creon 10 if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide a list of any over the counter and prescription drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. Your doctor can then determine if this is the right medication and you can proceed to buy Creon 10 online or locally.

Proper Use of Creon 10

Creon 10 must be taken with every meal or snack in order for you to benefit from the enzymes as they digest any fats, proteins, and sugars from the food you eat. You will be instructed to eat a healthy diet so you may want to meet with a registered dietician to develop a nutritious meal plan that should be high in calories, fats, proteins, and other nutrients. Make certain that you always have your prescription for Creon 10 refilled before you run out.
