taking a pancreatin supplement
Nov 18, 2005

I was reading "alternative Medicine-a difinative guide C.1999 & page 215 discusses enzyme therapy. Are the enzymes that they are refering to for intestinal tract health the same enzymes that I would take a proteast inhibitor for???

EXAMPLE:Solgar brand pancreatin has listed


PROTEASE 75,000 ISP units

AMYLAISE 75,000 ISP units

LIPASE 15,000 ISP units

Response from Dr. Henry

Those are totally different drugs (the protease inhibitor in pancreatic enzyme preparations would help digest proteins in the diet but would not inhibit HIV replication). KH

When delaying is becoming non-adherance?
