Enzyme Defficiency?

Is it possible to be born with Chronic Enzyme Deficiency across a range of enzymes? Overall causing a situation where you can only tolerate small meals?

If it's not possible to be born without a range of adequate enzyme's (not just gluten but the ability to break down other carbohydrates, protein and fats) then can this be fixed.

I'm trying to put all the pieces together there. I have always thought I was Gluten intonerant as it is the only thing which explains the brain fog and bloating and massive weight gain. I understand how this works in detail and how this can lead to food allergies via Leaky Gut.

Tiny meals work (and I mean really small meals like half a cup of veges) but anything bigger I get all the problems back like bloating, brain fog and lack of energy and always Hypoglycemia as a result of inflammation.

So I really need to know if there's a way of knowing if I do suffer a Chronic Enzyme deficiency across a broad range of food groups. Can anyone shed some light on this.

Just to save time, here's what I do know.
  • I know digestive Enzymes can help me.
  • I also know how Leaky gut can lead to more and more food allergies.
  • I realize that Gluten Intolerance can lead to leaky gut.
  • I am currently on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and the Low Fodmap Diet.
  • I am now allergic to just about everything I eat but I'm trying to get to the root of the problem. Maybe an enzyme deficiency has caused this problem to begin with. I'm just not sure how I could be deficient across a broad range.
