    Cramping after eating certain foods?

    Hello all. I am new to this board and wondered if someone might enlighten me to my newest malady. I am a 52 yr. old healthy male who over the last couple of years have noticed problems when I eat certain foods. (i.e. marinara sauce,creamy soups,processed meats). I recently went to see my gastroenterologist and explained the pains I get in my lower abdomen about 6-8 hours after I eat these certain foods. He suggested a colonoscopy which I completed 10 days ago. It did not show anything out of the ordinary other than an irritated section of the bowel which he biopsied with no results yet.
    Just wondered if anyone believes in these enzyme supplements that are out there that are supposed to help us digest our food better as we age.
    Since the doc can't seem to find anything really wrong, I am trying to find a way to enjoy my lasagna again. Thanks in advance.

    I have not tried them but a lot of people swear by Probiotics. Dr Becker a Osteopath on Family Net recommends them. I'm not sure if that's the enzymes you're speaking of.
