 Aevitum pregnancy
 Aevitum should not be taken during pregnancy, especially during the first twelve weeks, as it contains high doses of fat-soluble vitamins can cause malformations in the fetus. However, vitamin A and E required a pregnant woman, but moderate prophylactic doses.

Do you need vitamins A and E during pregnancy

These vitamins during pregnancy are needed. Thus, vitamin A provides normal fetal development, including its skin, muscle, and other soft tissues, bones and teeth, and placenta. In addition, vitamin A provides the normalization of carbohydrate and protein metabolism in the cells and, to a lesser extent - fat metabolism is involved in the formation of red blood cells, a positive effect on the heart muscle, and central nervous system, which forms a good condition during pregnancy.

Vitamin E (tocopherol) is one of the important vitamins during pregnancy. He has a positive effect on the entire sexual function of the pregnant woman, the fetus contributes to the growth, prevents premature termination of pregnancy. But most importantly - it is a beneficial effect on the blood vessels of the placenta.

Both vitamins (A and E) take part, as part of enzymes (coenzymes) in various biochemical processes in cells. They have antioxidant action, i.e. inhibit the toxic effects on the cells of the fetus and the placenta of free radicals. Especially strong antioxidant effect has vitamin E.

Also, both the vitamin increases the barrier function of the skin and mucous membranes, that is, their ability not to pass into the body of various pathogens. This feature is more pronounced among vitamin A, which actively improves the immune system of the skin and mucous membranes. During pregnancy, which is associated with reduced immunity, it is very important.

No less important is another quality of these vitamins: they reduce tissue oxygen demand, ie tolerance to lack of oxygen - hypoxia, which often occurs during pregnancy.

Can I use during pregnancy Aevitum

In contrast to vitamin-mineral complexes for pregnant women, which contain preventive doses of vitamin A and E, Aevitum Aevitum - for the treatment, rather than prevention  Aevitum - for the treatment, rather than prevention
   It contains therapeutic doses of these vitamins. For example, if one dragee vitamin-mineral complex vitrum Prenatal contains 4,000 IU of vitamin A and 11 IU (11 mg) of vitamin E, in one capsule contains Aevitum 100,000 IU of Vitamin A and 100 mg of vitamin E.

Such large doses of vitamins are dangerous. The most dangerous large doses of vitamin A, which have teratogenic properties, ie the ability to cause malformations in the fetus. Very often formed urinary tract malformations, growth retardation, early closure of the cartilaginous growth zones in the bones. At high doses of vitamin A is capable of damaging the cells, which results in the formation anomalies. Large doses of vitamin E as unsafe.

It should also take into account the fact that during pregnancy often have poor circulation, stagnation. This can lead to overdose Aevitum. Especially dangerous overdose of vitamin A, which appears six hours after receiving a large dose of his lethargy, drowsiness, irritability Irritability - you try to control my temper  Irritability - you try to control my temper
 , Double vision, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. It may appear bleeding gums How to prevent bleeding gums: important rules  How to prevent bleeding gums: important rules
 , Dryness of the oral mucosa, the occurrence of mouth ulcers and erosions, cracks on the lips, confusion.

Especially vitamin A is that it can accumulate in the body, it leads to chronic intoxication. It is manifested by pain in the limbs, loss of appetite, dry skin and mucous membranes, cracked lips, constant headaches, sensitivity to light. There are problems with the kidneys, they perform better during sleep, indicating that the decrease in their function. It may turn up the heat. The fact that there is an overdose of vitamin A talk orange spots in the nose, around the mouth, on the palms and soles.

Dangerous for pregnant women, and an overdose of vitamin E. There is a blurring of vision, dizziness, headache, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms  Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms
 Weakness. It increases the risk of bleeding in patients with hypovitaminosis K (may even be bleeding in the brain and retina of the eye), thyroid dysfunction. The most dangerous in overdose of vitamin E is the appearance of thrombophlebitis, and thromboembolism (blood clot separation followed by occlusion of their major blood vessels).

When the appointment Aevitum during pregnancy is justified

Aevitum given to pregnant women with caution and only for health reasons. For example, in severe vitamin A deficiency can appear and progress quickly ulcerated cornea. The process can grow literally within days, and perforation of the cornea and result in loss of the lens. In such cases Aevitum pregnant women appointed under strict medical supervision.

Aevitum in most cases is contraindicated during pregnancy.

Aktovegin during pregnancy: appoint a doctor

 Aktovegin during pregnancy
 Obstetricians often prescribed aktovegin during pregnancy, since the drug of natural origin helps transport to the cells and tissues of the absorption of glucose. In addition, it improves the resistance of tissues to oxygen deficiency.

What status of pregnant women may require correction, and whether to do it

One of the major complications during pregnancy is insufficient supply of nutrients and oxygen from mother to fetus due to impaired circulation in the placenta. Placenta - an organ that supports communication between the organism of mother and fetus. In the normal state placental blood mother fetus receives all the necessary nutrients and oxygen, but does not pass through the placenta most toxic substances, which makes the fruit sufficiently protected.

When pregnancy for various reasons (mother's disease, multiple intoxication, unhealthy lifestyle) can disrupt placental circulation, and the fruit begins to suffer from lack of food and oxygen supply. Especially dangerous lack of oxygen, as in our body have a tissue, which can not survive for long in the face of such deficits. This is primarily the brain tissue. The brain of the fetus with a lack of oxygen may suffer greatly until the death of the fetus or the heavy defeats of his central nervous system, followed by disability. This condition is called placental insufficiency Placental insufficiency - deviation from the norm  Placental insufficiency - deviation from the norm

The fetus can suffer from a lack of glucose, which is an energy material, vital to every cell so that it carried out the biochemical processes. If a pregnant woman is suffering from diabetes, it is especially the cells may suffer from a lack of glucose, and this, of course, can affect the condition of the fetus.

Such conditions of pregnant women, of course, require a correction - let things slide they can not be. The correction carried drugs that affect the cellular metabolism. One such drug is aktovegin Aktovegin - without fear of negative consequences  Aktovegin - without fear of negative consequences

Like how efficiently aktovegin during pregnancy - whether to apply it at all

Aktovegin is a natural product made from calves' blood. It publishes the Swiss pharmaceutical company Nycomed in the form of a gel, eye gel, ointment, solution for injection, solution for infusion and pills. Such a wide range of forms of the drug shows its versatility. The form of preparation for topical and local application contribute to the rapid recovery of damaged tissues. In pregnancy aktovegin used in the form of solutions for injection, infusion and inwardly in the form of pills.

Actovegin - a drug that stimulates the metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
   tissue, it consists of the specially treated calf blood. As a result of this treatment, there are the compounds (peptides and amino acid derivatives) with only low molecular weight allows it to penetrate into the brain and the placenta (to overcome the blood-brain and the placental barrier).

The drug enters the blood in the first and then to the tissue cells, where it exerts its effect. It causes an increase in consumption and oxygen uptake by cells, increases glucose uptake and energy reserves in the cells formed as a result of breakdown of glucose. As a result, even in the face of insufficient blood supply to the cells begin to operate at full power, without feeling the shortage of oxygen and glucose.

Use glucose aktovegin helps both by rapid transport through the cell membrane by stimulating transport systems - carriers of glucose, and by improving its assimilation in the cell that helps to improve the energy supply of the cells, and hence the activation of all types sharing in it. Thus aktovegin enhances the transfer of glucose to the brain, regardless of insulin The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives  The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives
   and insulin receptors.

In the context of placental insufficiency aktovegin helps the brain of the fetus to cope with this disease and do not suffer. This means that the appointment aktovegina during pregnancy can be vital. Today, some obstetricians have stopped appoint aktovegin when FPE, as in the medical literature there was a series of publications about his poor performance in this pathology. However, clinicians have always seen improvements in pregnant women after treatment with this drug. Perhaps there affects competition between pharmaceutical companies - manufacturers of drugs for treating pregnant women.

Contraindications for the purpose aktovegina (it may appoint a pregnant woman to a doctor!) Is the idiosyncrasy of the drug.
