Hi, Jeff K.

Lipase is a pancreatic enzyme.

What does you doc say about pancreatitis?

Hi, Jeff K.

Pancreatitis is a terrible condition since the very enzymes produced by the pancreas tend to digest the pancreas and cause even more inflammation.

Serious wellness is the only thing I know of that will pretty reliably reverse this but even that takes about a year. Of course, exposure to smoke and alcohol REALLY make this worse.

If I had this I might try acupuncture for temporary benefits until my wellness begins to help.

Let us know what you learn and how you do.

Walt
