Is pancrelipase a good substitute for pancrease enzymes?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes?: If you have exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, the treatment is oral pancreatic enzymes (aka pancrealipase). These enzymes are also used to treat chronic pancreatitis. Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency is fairly uncommon, generally seen in patient with a history of acute or chronic pancreatitis or cystic fibrosis or pancreatic surgery.
