Creon 24,000 Description

If you have been diagnosed with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI), you probably have chronic pancreatitis which is the most common cause of EPI. The cause of chronic pancreatitis may be a genetic mutation, a long history of smoking, a blockage of your pancreatic duct, or heavy alcohol consumption. Less commonly it may be due to an autoimmune disease, gall stones, or cystic fibrosis. You will require a prescription to buy Creon 24,000 (Pancrelipase Delayed Release) which is a pancreatic enzyme supplement that will help you digest food properly. Creon 24,000 contains 24,000 USP units of lipase; 76,000 USP units of protease; and 120,000 USP units of amylase in each capsule.

When taken as directed with every meal and a half dose with snacks the water-soluble enzyme lipase breaks down fat molecules which contain fatty acids and glycerol. The amylase enzymes breakdown starch, one of three types of carbohydrates. Amylase which is found in your saliva breaks down the starch in the food as you chew it into small molecules as well as in your small intestine. Here, amylase is broken into units of maltose and finally into glucose, which is then absorbed and enters your bloodstream. The primary function of the protease enzyme is to break down protein into pieces called amino acids that are then used for building new proteins with specific functions.

Conditions Treated by Creon 24,000

Chronic pancreatitis appears to be more common in men than women and can develop between thirty and forty years of age. Whether this is caused by alcohol abuse, cystic fibrosis, or a blocked bile duct, you may experience nausea, vomiting, weight loss, or diarrhea without the necessary digestive enzymes. The nutrients from the foods you eat will not be absorbed and they will simply pass from your body as oily or fatty stools. Your pancreas only provides the digestive juices to break down your food; it also produces insulin and secretes it into your bloodstream to regulate your blood glucose levels. If your pancreas is not working properly, you may also be at risk to develop diabetes.

Before You Take Creon 24,000

Ask your doctor if Creon 24,000 could be harmful if taken while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or if you are breast feeding. Discuss your medical history with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx medication you are on, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Creon 24,000 is right for you.
