Laktofiltrum - a drug that relieves the body from toxic substances. It is very important during pregnancy, when the kidneys and liver, women bear a double burden. But the problem is that the data about how pregnant women suffer laktofiltrum, manufacturers of the drug is not provided.
How does the gastrointestinal tract during pregnancy
During pregnancy, impaired motor activity of the gastrointestinal tract of a woman, that is, reduced peristalsis. This happens because all the movement of smooth muscles of the pelvic organs and abdominal suppressed female sex hormone progesterone
Progesterone - norm and pathology
. This is a protective physiological response that prevents the reduction of muscles of the uterus and spontaneous abortion
Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?
. Musculature of the gastrointestinal tract is suffering just "for the company" as is innervated by nerve fibers, extending from the uterus of a single nerve trunk.
All this leads to the fact that during pregnancy a woman worried about constipation. But take non-prescription laxatives (including herbal) or make it impossible enema due to increased intestinal motility, which may result in the strengthening of muscle contractions of the uterus. Women are advised to adjust the chair with the help of food, and if you are very persistent constipation, the doctor prescribes a special laxative permitted for use during pregnancy (they do not affect intestinal motility).
During pregnancy a woman's body is working with high load, especially hard for the liver and kidneys, by which degraded and excreted toxic substances. A lot of toxic substances: metabolites organisms maternal and fetal toxic substances produced in toxicosis of the first and second half of pregnancy, the products of inflammatory and allergic reactions, and so on.
What action has on the human body laktofiltrum
Laktofiltrum is composed of two substances - lignin and lactulose. Lignin is made from wood, it consists of cellulose fibers, which are deposited on the surface and absorbs all the poisons, toxic products of metabolism
Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
Inflammatory and allergic reactions. Lignin also enhances intestinal motility, but in some cases (for example, drug overdose), on the contrary, inhibits peristalsis and cause constipation.
Lactulose - a synthetic sugar consisting of galactose and fructose residues. It is broken down in the gut with the release of large amounts of organic acids and serves as a breeding ground for the development of the natural intestinal flora that helps process food. The acidic environment is favorable for the development of beneficial microflora and adverse for opportunistic.
Overall laktofiltrum may be a good idea to clean and heal the gut, and with it the entire body. A day after receiving laktofiltrum completely eliminated from the body. Available laktofiltrum tablets. Adults are advised to take it two or three pills three times a day for an hour before eating or taking other medicines. The course of treatment - two to three weeks.
Action laktofiltrum a pregnant woman
The manual says nothing about whether it is possible to take laktofiltrum pregnant woman obviously clinical studies with this cohort of patients was conducted. Since this preparation is practically not absorbed into blood and has no systemic effects, the decision on its purpose, presumably, is assigned to the doctor who oversees the pregnant woman.
The solution is a physician can take only bringing together all the data on the state of women's health. For example, consider the degree of toxicity that may occur in her body for one reason or another, the presence or absence of increased motor activity of muscles of the uterus (hyper), the state of the gastrointestinal tract. If a woman chair more or less regular, hyper
Gipertonus: a sign of the disease
No, but intoxication is growing, the doctor may, after a preliminary examination (ultrasound, fetal CTG) to decide what course of treatment should appoint laktofiltrum.
If a woman has uterine hypertonus, after application laktofiltrum it may increase, leading to abortion. Perhaps the opposite situation when laktofiltrum will further suppress intestinal motility, which would entail the constipation, the delay in the intestine of toxic substances and their re-absorption into the blood. This will aggravate during any intoxication.
During pregnancy, even the most harmless drug should be administered by your doctor. As for this laktofiltrum.
