What can I do for elevated liver enzymes from pancreatin or boswellia serrata?

What can I do for elevated liver enzymes from pancreatin or boswellia serrata?

Rule out...: Your elevated liver enzymes may be from some other cause (hepatitis, fatty liver, alcohol, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, others) or the 'holistic' remedies you're taking may not be what they're suppposed to be -- it's common for unregulated meds to contain things that are deadly. If you really believe that that frankincense stuff is raising your liver 'zymes, then stop taking it & watch them drop. ...Read more

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
