Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity and Digestive (Pancreatic) Enzymes

A large number of people that are gluten sensitive also have pancreatic damage. This can be a part of their ongoing digestive problems. Here is the study. The authors recommend:

When given pancreatic enzyme supplementation - three capsules of Creon 10,000* with each meal - eighteen out of twenty CD patients with diarrhoea (90%) had significant reduction in bowel frequency from 4 motions per day to 1 motion per day.

It makes sense to me that every person that has continuing digestive problems should consider doing a therapeutic trial in cooperation with their naturopathic doctor.
