      You'll need an enzyme replacement most likely since your count is low. Mine was 28. Good luck!

      I got results back on my elastase last week and it was also under 50. In my case, I was a heavy drinker for many years and my pancreas has been damaged and isn't producing enough digestive enzymes. There are a number of reasons for your pancreas to have diminished function.
