A CT scan shows normal and the amylase blood levels were in the limit of normal, I have a gassy digest, why did still the dr prescribed pancreatin for 3 days, saying I should see if I'd feel better?

A CT scan shows normal and the amylase blood levels were in the limit of normal, I have a gassy digest, why did still the dr prescribed pancreatin for 3 days, saying I should see if I'd feel better?

CT for "gas"? ..: NO IDEA... CT for "excessive gas production"? . Is there moderate pain? A single normal amylase does not rule out pancreatitis. If it IS pancreatitis, pancreatin alone would not help.
Excessive gas production is often due to lactose intolerance (among other possible causes) Trying LACTASE may give the answer. ...Read more
