My 34 year old daughter recently had her gallbladder removed.
Dear Terry, “My 34 year old daughter recently had her gallbladder removed. I'm worried she won't be able to get all the nutrients from her food. Can you please tell me some things to help her?” — Donna S., Erie, PA
Dear Donna, Your daughter should consider adding a digestive enzyme formula to her daily supplement regimen. Supplementing with pancreatin, a natural digestive enzyme complex that provides the enzymes protease, lipase, and amylase, can make all the difference. Pancreatic enzymes simply help your body do what it already does naturally.
I recommend taking pancreatin with each meal. Make sure your daughter chooses an undiluted pancreatin supplement. The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) has set strict definitions for the level of activity – measured by how effectively the enzyme breaks down its targeted nutrient type – for pancreatin. I believe the best results for improving digestion come from full strength, undiluted pancreatin. Less potent pancreatin has often been diluted with salt, lactose or galactose.
