I would like any information on diverticulitis and exerine pancreatic insufficiency EPI. i read that protein powder might have triggered my recent diverticulitis incident.the gastroenterologist prescribed cripo and flagel i am allergic to flagel dr ignored warning on my chart. Cipro has serious side effects like tendon rupture in people over 60 i am 78. I am on a liquid diet with bone broth fresh vegetable juice .olive leaf for bacteria lot of vit a b c d e selenium grape seed extract and curcumin (CuraMed) brand milk thistle slippery elm trace minerals magnesium probotics.

Gman007 Thank you for your reply and the information on supplements.I take all of these and a lot of antioxIdants alphs lipoic acid, N A C,acetyl.-l-cartinine ,vit a ,e selenium . A lot of the ones i take help with brain function.I like to be able to think clearly,and at almost 80 that takes more working at.I agree with bobinthevillages about the lack of experience any GI Dr has.here is a web sight on dosing of creon wwwcfhcp/dosingguide. I think that is the one that says Too high dose of creon is associated with FIBROSING COLONOPATHY. i have less pain if i have smaller meals and control my stress.I am going to try to contact the collage here in Austin to try to find a Dr with more experience treating EPI any information on that would be good

Thank you for moving me to digestive health. You ask if chronic pancreatitis was the cause of my EPI it was not it was from a very bad reaction to 2 drugs estergen cream and 2 weeks later a really bad reaction to a infusion of recast a BISPHOSPHONATE over 200 days of diarrhea,lost 25lb and lots of muscle.the only information from my dr was creon  and a low fat diet thank  God for the internet there is a lot of other things you can do.Creon is very important but organic low fat diet,supplements,hydration,controlling stress and weight bearing exercise all help.I am 78  and I have done organic food for the last 30 years. I would like to find a Dr in Austin Texas that knows more about EPI . If any one wants a list of the supplements I take I would be glad to send it.It may take a while working a job,not feeling well and typing with one finger takes longer.but I have done a lot of research and am willing to share also I am open to any information or suggestions.this is a wonderful place to find I have felt very much alone  thank you jewill

Dec 6, 2016 · Malabsorption in Digestive Health

I was given creon 3600 for EPI. Exocrine pancreatic insuffency. Creon works good but you need a low fat diet and supplments epi causes malabsorption so you need lot of supplments. No dr would give me this info so i researched it on the web it has helped me become more stable.i had dirrhea for over 300 days went to dr after dr finally one did a fat fecal test and gave me creon but they dont give you any other info and if you are on medicare it isnot worth ther time to bother but ther is a lot of info on the net.taking too much creon can cause a lot of serious problems check it out on the web what caused your malabsorpiom.
