Seven patients with cystic fibrosis taking high doses of pancreatin supplements were assessed to determine whether this dose was necessary to achieve adequate fat absorption. Patients reduced their intake from a group mean of 45 to 21 capsules a day. Five patients did not have any significant alteration in fat malabsorption while taking the reduced enzyme dose.
