Enzymes to Treat Cystic Fibrosis
According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), 87% of the patients who suffer from cystic fibrosis need to take enzymes. These supplements are taken in the form of capsules through the mouth so they can work in the intestines. Each capsule has small beads with digestive enzymes and is covered with a special enteric coating. It is important that patients take the right amount of enzymes, and should check with the dietitian on their CF care team for the exact amount of enzymes to take. Enzymes help patients digest carbohydrates, proteins and fats; gain and maintain a healthy weight; and absorb essential nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. Enzymes for patients with cystic fibrosis include:
