How do I know if I am taking enough enzymes?
If you are taking enough pancreatic enzyme supplements, your symptoms should improve, and for some people any symptoms they have may go.
If you continue to have symptoms while using the enzymes, or are losing weight, speak to your dietitian, nurse or doctor. They may increase the dose of enzymes. They may also suggest taking a medicine called proton pump inhibitors, or arrange tests to check for other digestion problems. Your dietitian may also suggest changes to your diet.
