Pancreatin Do Any Of The Diabetics On Board Take This?

Recommended Posts

My pancreas apparently took a real whap from the Levaquin. I still am not digesting things completely but at least they don't look like they did when they went in anymore. My blood sugar levels are still quite high for me.

Since the CT scan they did showed what were thought to be pancreatic calcifications, (I think that means scarring), I looked up some stuff on the pancreas today. One of the things that was mentioned by some was pancreatin. Has anyone used this? I am assuming it is safe for a diabetic to take but please correct me if I am wrong. I will be contacting my doctor soon, I already would have but my car has been out of commission. Thanks to the person who mentioned Januvia cause I am sure with morning readings anywhere from 125 to 173 and usually over 130 and post meal readings in the 200's that he is going to want me to take something.

I was doing so well (sigh) Why oh Why did I take that pill I am so mad at myself for that.

Also at what point is it imperitive to call the doctors with a high reading? Can it be an emergency without someone feeling extrememly ill?

Thanks in advance
