    Vital Nutrients Pancreatic Enzyme Does Not Work

    Hi,

    In the previous forum, one of the members posted about a possible Creon replacement called Vital Nutrients Pancreatic Enzyme.

    I have tried it for a week and noticed that I got more frequent diarrhoea. So I am going back to the original Creon to see if it helps with my loose stools.

    Although the lipase content of Vital Nutrients is high, I suspect it does not work as well due to its delivery mechanisms. VN is packed inside a gelatin capsule, which dissolves right away in our acidic stomach. Some of the enzymes may be deactivated due to the acid. Where as Creon is a time-release capsule, so the enzymes will pass the stomach before dissolving. The enzymes are only useful in our intestines.

    I hope this helps.

    Please share your thoughts if you have a different experience.

    Aside, I am still struggling to gain weight (only 0.5kg-ish in 2 months) and with diarrhoea, even with frequent meals and less fatty food (even while on Creon). I'm still getting diarrhoea three to four times in a week.

    Thanks.

    John
