Topic: Need Fats with Malarone - But no Gallbladder

I'm now on Malarone and have to eat fats with each dosage, just like Mepron. I try to eat the healthier fats.
Any suggestions of good enzymes to take with fats to help them digest better? I'm looking for particular brands or ingredients that seem to work best for those of you in similar situation. I'm using a Bronson digestive enzyme now.
I had my gallbladder out last summer and have been able to eat fats most of the time until Malarone.
However, the amount of fat I'm eating with Malarone is making me have pain in that liver/gallbladder area. I'm going to have my liver enzymes checked on Monday.

Could be your spleen causing the pain too.
Not uncommon with babesia.
I had my gall bladder out and have never had an issue with fats.
I used peanut butter in the morning and usually
Had enough fat in dinner to just get by.
In a pinch I would take a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
