Hi guys! I finally got an official diagnosis from a new doctor today. Not to say that I'm happy I have celiac disease.. But am happy to finally have a diagnosis

Anyway,
My doctor mentioned taking digestive enzymes and I was wondering if anybody could tell me what has worked best for them?

Thanks!
Kristin

I like Enzymedica Digest Spectrum. It is billed as "complete food intolerance support" and aids in the digestion of "Gluten, Phenol, Lactose and Casein".

 

I also recommend you get a probiotic.

L-Glutamine is not a digestive enzyme but it helps with muscle/intestinal healing. I just mention it because it will be sold in the same stores that sell the enzymes.

Best wishes.

Thanks Michelle1234 and nvsmom!

I already have a good probiotic. I will look into both of the things you guys mentioned.

How often did you guys take them when you were first healing? I know it's probably different for everyone, but did you guys take them at every meal, once a day, or what?

Thanks!

I put some on my potatoes about 2 years ago and it helped prevent the bloating and the aches.

I bought the pharmacy's brand. But they were expensive.

I have gotten enzymes from my health practitioners and from the natural food store and these have all worked.

 

My health practitioner told me the enzymes were needed because the damaged villi don't tell the pancreas to fire.  The enzymes will help break down the food for you.  I think they are slowly bringing down my swollen abdomen.

 

I am so glad, for you, that you got your diagnosis, and it sounds like your doctor has good ideas what to do!
