Probiotic And Digestive Enzymes Question
0

5 posts in this topic

Im new to Celiac and have question about probiotic and digestive enzymes.  My hubby bought me a probiotic and on the bottle it states enzymes for digestive health.  He swears this one pill is both probiotic and digestive enzymes.  I am still confused on these two. Can it be in one pill or is it two separate things that I need? Here is what it says on the bottle: Probiotic Multi-Enzyme Digestive Formula Containg Active Acidophilus Cultures

That just sounds like a probiotic to me but I am not very well versed in this area.

I take a Creon which is a digestive enzyme. A prescription was needed to get it.

I'm sure others will help. There are some around here who know this stuff well.

Probiotics replenish the beneficial bacteria in your gut.

Digestive enzymes help when your pancreatic enzymes are lacking due to pancreatic insufficiency (whether from celiac or pancreatitis).

 

They can be combined in one supplement, yes, but the potency is the key..

 

What is the brand name? let's take a look at the label--maybe see what's in the combo?.

We just realized it has wheat in it so not taking them..  Any suggestions on a good brand to take?  What should I look for in each of them? I am clueless with the Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes

I like Digest Gold enzymes

 

and Culturelle Probiotics( if you have diarrhea, they contain the strain lactobacillusGG which helps with that)

 

Another good one is Jarro-dophilus AF (allergy-free)

or Custom Probiotics

.

Others may have suggestions of brands they prefer.

    • I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer 
    • Maybe try a rice based milk, I find the coconut flavoured ones really good with cereal.  
    • I guess they've never felt the political pressure the mainstream cereal producers were under in the age of rickets and pellagra? Plus there's not such a competitive market and its a cost manufacturers would sooner do without if they can, although if Udi's or Genius did start perhaps they'd get more business. I think I'll start eating flax seed again, that was good for fibre I think. I take a vitamin supplement also of course. 
    • Good for you! One suggestion, if you run into another reaction like your Endo, try and ask a question which puts the burden of proof on them, ie: 'Given the positive blood test, on what clinical basis are you excluding celiac?' At least it forces them to be more precise and perhaps exposes any flaws in their reasoning. Although if you reach that stage with a doctor it's probably worth looking for another... If I were a cynic I'd say your Endo had already metaphorically left the building when they were analysing your tests.Your primary seems more on the ball though Best of luck! If and when you go gluten free come back here and there will be plenty of support for you.
