Abstract

Seven patients with cystic fibrosis taking high doses of pancreatin supplements were assessed to determine whether this dose was necessary to achieve adequate fat absorption. Patients reduced their intake from a group mean of 45 to 21 capsules a day. Five patients did not have any significant alteration in fat malabsorption while taking the reduced enzyme dose.
