Pancreatic Insufficiency Stack

General Health 600 SupplementDoctor
Gas, bloating, and other symptoms can surface when the pancreas doesn't secrete enough of the enzymes needed for normal digestion. This condition is called pancreatic insufficiency and may be caused by your pancreas getting inflamed more often such as being a heavy alcohol drinker. Also, other causes may include having cystic fibrosis, Shwachman-Diamond syndrome, and if you've had surgery on your pancreas, stomach, or intestines. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

Potential Interactions
Studies in animals and humans suggest that supplementation with large amounts of either vitamin C or vitamin E increases the requirement for the other nutrient.

Vitamin C appears to convert sodium selenite (a form of selenium used for supplementation) to elemental selenium, making it unavailable for absorption. This interaction occurred when 1 g of vitamin C was taken with sodium selenite on an empty stomach, but not when these nutrients were taken together with a meal. Vitamin C does not appear to interact with selenomethionine, another commonly used form of supplemental selenium.
