Creon with gastritis A frequent occurrence in gastritis is a digestive disorder caused by a decrease in the production of pepsin and gastric acid.The production of pancreatic enzymes decreases, their intake into the intestine is uneven.Such disorders are most typical for an anacid and a hypoacid gastritis.With these diseases, pain and heaviness in the stomach, lack of appetite, eructations, vomiting and intestinal disorders appear, manifested by alternating diarrhea with constipation.

Therefore, one of the stages of gastric acid therapy with reduced acidity is the appointment of enzymes that facilitate the digestion of protein, carbohydrate and fatty foods.Today, this is often done using drugs that include porcine pancreatin.Among the popular enzyme products of this group is a special place Creon.

Creon is a pancreatin that includes valuable enzymes such as lipase, amylase, and protease.From traditional drugs is characterized by improved form and increased concentration of enzymes.


In the form of Creon represents micr

ospheres from 1 to 1.7 mm in size, coated with a shell that dissolves already in the intestine.

The preparation is in a capsule of gelatin, which protects the contents from destruction by pepsin and hydrochloric acid.The optimal action of Creon occurs with an acidic pH of 4 to 7. The drug is quickly mixed with food in the stomach.The concentration of lipase in one microsphere more than twice exceeds its content in the Mezim forte tablet and is significantly higher than in Festal.


Creon compensates for the lack of pancreas, promotes the processing of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, which improves absorption in the intestines and eliminates the developmental manifestations of gastritis.

Creon with gastritis After taking the capsule, the drug dissolves rapidly in the stomach, releasing many microspheres that mix well with the food lump.In the intestine, their membrane dissolves and releases enzymes that promote the cleavage and assimilation of nutrients.

Creon is taken with gastritis while eating, without chewing.For children under one year old and those with difficulty swallowing, the capsule is opened and mixed with a small amount of food or liquid.The mixture is taken immediately after preparation.Drink the product with a sufficient volume of liquid( more than half a glass).


The dose of Creon is selected by the gastroenterologist, depending on the stage of gastritis and the adherent diet.
