 Dosage Creon
 Creon - dosage of this enzyme preparation depends on the degree of digestion. Enzyme preparations help to improve the digestive process. Disorders of the digestive system of varying severity are found in almost all diseases of the digestive system.

 Creon - dosage of enzyme preparation

How does Creon

The composition includes Creon porcine pancreatic enzymes - lipase, amylase and protease. Lipase promotes cleavage of neutral fat in the intestine. It is particularly important in the human liver and pancreas. Amylase breaks down starch and pectin to simple sugars - sucrose and maltose, she cleaves extracellular mainly complex carbohydrates (starch, glycogen) and almost not involved in the splitting of fiber. Proteases - are enzymes which cleave proteins. In Creon Creon - medicine to help digestion  Creon - medicine to help digestion
   they are represented by chymotrypsin and trypsin. Trypsin also regulates motor activity of the intestine.

Creon is used to correct digestive disorders, as well as for the regulation of the pancreas Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know  Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
 . The walk in the structure of this enzyme preparation provides digestion and contribute to relief of symptoms of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency - decreased appetite, nausea, Nausea - there may be problems with the nervous system  Nausea - there may be problems with the nervous system
 , Rumbling in the abdomen, bloating, and so on.

After numerous studies it was found that from the stomach simultaneously with the food can pass into the duodenum solid particles whose diameter is not more than 2 mm. Larger particles, including enzyme preparations are tablets or dragees are evacuated when the food weight is absent. The resulting formulations are not miscible with food and are not actively involved in digestion.

Creon does not have these drawbacks, it can quickly and evenly mixed with food due to the nature of its formulation. It comes in the form of gelatin capsules, 150, 300 and 400 mg of pancreatin, a prisoner in a variety of special beads coated with an enteric coating. The diameter of the microspheres does not exceed 2 mm.

If swallowed gelatin capsules dissolve rapidly, the microspheres are mixed with food and gradually enter the duodenum. In the alkaline environment of the duodenum enzymes they start acting on a large surface, virtually repeating the physiological processes of digestion, when pancreatic juice is released portions in response to the periodic supply of food from the stomach. This allows as close to a natural process of digestion and reduce the dosage of pancreatin.

Dosage in the human digestive organs

Creon is used as replacement therapy in deficiency of exocrine pancreatic function, as well as digestive problems associated with other disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and biliary tract.

Creon dose depends on the degree of digestive disorders and the content in the lipase preparation, as for admission of enzymes in the small intestine of their activity falls sharply.

As a result, the dose of Creon set taking into account the degree of deficiency of digestion, fat content in the diet, symptoms of the disease, control of steatorrhea results (number of undigested fat in the stool) and maintain a normal nutritional status. The dose of lipase, which requires the patient along with the main meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) can be from 20 000 to 75 000 lipase units (IU Ph. Eur.), While taking a light meal - about 5 000 to 25 000 lipase units.

When receiving Creon average initial dose of lipase is 10 000-25 000 lipase units during the main meal. However, may require higher doses in order to achieve a more complete digestion of fats and support good nutritional status. Creon usually prescribed so that the patient gets along with food at least 20 000 - 50 000 units of lipase.

For convenience Creon produced in different dosages. Creon 10000 contains 10,000 lipase units of 150 mg of pancreatin Pancreatin - a means to improve digestion  Pancreatin - a means to improve digestion
 , Creon 25,000 - 25,000 lipase units of 300 mg pancreatin Creon 40,000 - 40,000 lipase units composed of 400 mg of pancreatin.

How to take Creon

Creon capsules are taken orally, it is recommended to take half or a third of a single dose at the beginning of the meal, and the rest - during meals. The capsules should be swallowed whole without breaking them and not liquid, squeezed enough water. Crushing or chewing the microspheres, and adding them to an alkaline diet leads to the destruction of their shell to protect them from the action of gastric juice.

Creon should be used strictly in accordance with the instructions.
