Digestive Enzymes Help!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, I've joined up in the hope someone could possibly help me source a good quality digestive enzyme (I am dairy free due to an intolerance!)

I have had half of my stomach removed and now suffer from gastroparesis, dumping syndrome, reactive hypoglycemia, IBD and GERD. I'm fed up with just being fobbed off with tablets that don't work or just add to my symptoms. Someone mentioned digestive enzymes to me and I'd really like to give them a go.

However, my research has just led me round and round and I'm more confused than ever now! When I find one that I think will be okay, it has a load of binders/extras which I'd like to avoid. Any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated.

      Apple cider vinegar is acidic and in its raw form may aggravate GERD. I have GERD and I avoid anything acidic.

    Are you able to take lactose free milk or is that still a problem? Milk is very good for digestion problems like GERD.
