What Is Pancreatin Creon?

Pancreatin Creon is a prescription drug that is given to people who are unable to digest their food normally because their pancreas cannot produce enough enzymes. This condition is called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency and is caused by cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), pancreatectomy and other conditions.

If you have any medical condition affecting the pancreas it not necessarily mean that you need to take these capsules. It is better that you check with your doctor before administering any medication.

How Does Pancreatin Creon Work?

The pancreas produces a number of enzymes that are essential for the digestion of food. These enzymes help break down food into its nutrients like protein, fat and carbohydrates.

  • Lipase which helps break down fats.
  • Protease which helps break down proteins.
  • Amylase which helps to break down carbohydrate.

When the pancreas is unable to synthesise the required amount of enzymes, the body can is not able to digest and absorb food normally.

Creon tablets contain the required enzymes. When you take Pancreatin Creon capsules, they simply replace the three enzymes that your pancreas would make normally for the digestion of food.
