Pancrex V 125mg Capsules – Pancreatic Enzyme Supplements, 300 Capsules

If you’re looking for a pancreatic enzyme supplement that can help you digest your food properly, Pancrex V 125mg Capsules are a great option. The active ingredient in these capsules is pancreatin, a combination of enzymes that are normally produced by the pancreas. Pancreatin can help you digest protein, fat, starch and sugars, making it an ideal supplement for those who don’t produce enough enzymes on their own. Pancreatin is also useful in conditions such as cystic fibrosis and persistent inflammation of the pancreas, and can be used by those who have had their pancreas removed. So if you’re looking for a way to improve your digestive health, Pancrex V 125mg Capsules are worth

Pancreatin is given to people who do not produce enough enzymes to digest their food properly, in conditions such as cystic fibrosis, persistent inflammation of the pancreas, and when the pancreas has been removed.

Pancrex V Capsules may also be used when the stomach has been removed, as an aid to digestion.
These capsules may be used when small amounts of Pancrex are required, such as in younger children. The capsules may also be used in patients who cannot easily dissolve the special coating of other pancreatin preparations.
The pancreatin in Pancrex V Capsules is derived from pancreases of pigs.

What is Chronic pancreatitis?

Chronic pancreatitis is a condition where the pancreas has become permanently damaged from inflammation and stops working properly.

The pancreas is a small organ, located behind the stomach, that helps with digestion.

Chronic pancreatitis can affect people of any age, but it usually develops between the ages of 30 and 40 as a result of heavy drinking over many years. It’s more common in men.

It’s different from acute pancreatitis, where the inflammation is only short term.

Most people with chronic pancreatitis have had 1 or more attacks of acute pancreatitis.

The most common symptom of chronic pancreatitis is repeated episodes of severe pain in your tummy (abdomen).

The pain usually develops in the middle or left side of your tummy and can move along your back.

It’s been described as a burning or shooting pain that comes and goes, but may last for several hours or days.

Although the pain sometimes comes on after eating a meal, there’s often no trigger. Some people might feel sick and vomit.

As the condition progresses, the painful episodes may become more frequent and severe.

Eventually, a constant dull pain can develop in your tummy, between episodes of severe pain.

This is most common in people who continue to drink alcohol after being diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis.

Some people who stop drinking alcohol and stop smoking may find the pain is less severe.

Other symptoms develop as the damage to the pancreas progresses and it becomes unable to produce digestive juices, which help to break down food.

The absence of digestive juices means it’s harder to break down fats and some proteins. This can cause your poo to become very smelly and greasy, and make it difficult to flush down the toilet.

The pancreas usually only loses these functions many years after the first symptoms started.

Side Effects

Undesirable effects

Rare cases of hyperuricosuria and hyperuricaemia have been reported when extremely high doses of pancreatin have been taken.

Strictures of the ileo-caecum and large bowel, and colitis, have been reported in children with cystic fibrosis taking high doses of pancreatic enzyme supplements. To date Pancrex and Pancrex V presentations have not been implicated in the development of colonic damage. However unusual abdominal symptoms or changes in abdominal symptoms should be reviewed to exclude the possibility of colonic damage especially if the patient is taking in excess of 10,000 units/kg/day of lipase.
