Digestive Enzymes? (Diagnosed Today)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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!

I also take one when I go to bed and that helps me a lot too.

    • I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.  
    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc
