Pancrease MT 4 Description

If your doctor has diagnosed you with chronic pancreatitis, you may be required to take Pancrease MT 4 in order to supplement your digestive enzymes as damage to your pancreas can alter your body’s ability to properly breakdown and digest the foods you eat. Pancrease MT 4 contains three important enzymes called Amylase, Lipase, and Protease that can help those with chronic pancreatitis (CP) avoid the uncomfortable symptoms of bloating and diarrhea.

Your dosage will depend on several factors, including the cause of your exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). Pancrease MT 4 capsules contain enteric-coated micro tablets with 17,500 USP Units of Amylase/4,200 USP Units of Lipase/10,000 USP Units of Protease.

How Digestive Enzymes Work

Amylase, also found in your saliva, breaks down starch into simple sugars and converts it into glucose so it’s easily absorbed through the walls of your small intestines. From your liver, glucose enters your circulatory system and increases blood glucose levels. Once your body’s cells have had their fill of glucose, your liver will store some of the excess for times that your glucose levels dip. Lipase breaks down the fats into fatty acids and glycerol molecules so it can be digested and absorbed by your intestine and is used by all of your cells. Protease takes care of breaking down protein into amino acids that are important for building new proteins.

Conditions Treated by Pancrease MT 4

Pancrease MT 4 may be prescribed in the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis (CF), an inherited genetic condition that affects your lungs and digestive and reproductive systems. Pancrease MT 4 can help when your own enzymes become blocked or the production of them is impaired. These enzymes are essential for breaking down the foods you eat in order to be digested so you will not become malnourished or have a vitamin deficiency because the nutrients have simply passed through your body.

Due to the sticky mucus that develops when you have CF, most commonly produced in your lungs and digestive system, your pancreas cannot produce sufficient enzymes to properly digest your meals and essential nutrients are lost as they are excreted from your body.

Before Pancrease MT 4 is Prescribed

Check with your doctor before taking Pancrease MT 4 to see if there are any health risks involved if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Pancrease MT 4 is right for you, inform your doctor of other medical conditions or allergies you have and list all OTC or Rx drugs you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplement

Pancrease MT 4 Precautions and Proper Use

Pancrease MT 4 capsules must be swallowed whole so the individual micro tablets do not irritate your mouth. Take with your meal or snack and a full glass of water or juice so the medicine can start working right away to help with digestion. Never share this medication with anyone, even if they have the same symptoms or diagnosis, as each Rx drug has different amounts of enzymes.
