chronic pancreatitis and Creon.

I have chronic pancreatitis and was recently diagnosed with malnutrition as my body has stopped making the enzymes needed to break down and absorb the nutrients I need. I've been prescribed Creon, an enzyme replacement therapy, but as I've not come across this before I was wondering if there's anyone here who's also on it?

    Hi @Merry

    Welcome to our site/online community.

    It’s great to meet you today.

    I do hope that one of our friendly members can help you with this???

    But I would be more than happy in helping you look into things on the internet if that would be helpful???

    Hi @Merry, and a warm welcome to the community! 

    This isn't something I have experience with myself, but hopefully some of our community members will be able to share their experiences with you.

    Hi Merry, I take creon as I have Cystic Fibrosis and that affects my pancreas in a very similar way to yours. Xx
