Not everyone needs pancreatin enzyme supplements. These contain digestive enzymes such as lipase, amylase, and tripsin. These are very essential to breakdown fat and protein from food and then digest it. The supplements are recommended for conditions where the pancreas makes less enzymes or does not make any due to the following conditions.

·     Pancreatectomy (surgical removal of pancreas)

·     Inflammation of pancreas

·     Celiac disease

·     Pancreatic cancer

·     Autoimmune diseases

You don’t have to take these supplements unless your doctor prescribes it owing to any of the above conditions.
