Peanut butter causing problems? Really?!?!
On another CF site I use, PB tends to be staple diet for weight gain. The stuff literally finds it's way into almost every meal. I never knew it could cause blockages! Good job I'm using real food (and sugar) to keep my weight up. :P
Creon 20, is about
the strength of Creon 25,000 from what I can gather from google. 12 with a meal is a lot to be taking!!
I take Creon 10,000 which is closest to Creon 10. Usually take between 12 and 18 with a meal (18 is only with mcdonalds as I just cannot digest any of their food-which made working there fun, I can assure you.) and 4-6 with snacks.
Reason I'm on the lower dose, is because the higher dose caused me a load of problems. In 3 months they forced me to try it, it made me ill. My friends and brother had the same problems as me with Creon 25,000. So every CF patient I know is on Creon 10,000. Only my brother gets bowel obstructions-but he hardley ever remembers Creon. Though his new gf is getting him into line. :D
