Duphalac - the use of this drug is allowed almost everyone, including infants and pregnant women. It just is contraindicated in some serious organic and genetic diseases of the intestine, as well as if you are hypersensitive body of the patient.
Duphalac for chronic constipation
Chronic constipation - this is not simply the absence of a regular chair. In chronic constipation toxic substances, which must be regularly excreted from the body, re-absorbed into the bloodstream and cause chronic intoxication, which adversely affects the status of all organs and tissues. Patients suffering from chronic constipation, even changing the character: he becomes irritable, suspicious, bilious. Constipation can also cause congestion in the veins of the pelvis and the development of hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids - a shameful disease
For the treatment of constipation have long been used laxatives, including herbal. But it has been observed that after a while it becomes less effective laxative and then may stop working altogether - it comes to the habit of the body.
Duphalac - is a laxative, which does not occur addiction. Active substance is lactulose Duphalac - carbohydrate containing two simple carbohydrates - glucose and galactose

by special processing.
Habituation to the drug does not occur because, unlike other laxatives, who simply stimulate peristalsis, lactulose first draws fluid into the lumen (osmotic effect, which can not develop addictive). From liquid stool swell, and this leads to increased intestinal motility.
Also laxative properties Duphalac has also detoxication properties - it cleans orgasm from ammonia, which accumulates in the intestine as a result of splitting of food and poisons the body.
Duphalac is widely used in proctology during operations on the rectum and anus as a part of preoperative preparation.
Duphalac is available in the form of syrup. Take it to the individually selected dose. The average daily intake for an adult at the beginning of the application is 15-45 ml, maintenance - 15-30 ml of syrup. This dose may be administered one-time in the same time during a meal, and may be divided into several stages. Duphalac is recommended to swallow at once, you can not long keep it in your mouth, not to lactulose diluted saliva - this it loses its osmolality.
Duphalac in hepatic encephalopathy
Liver failure is a result of chronic liver diseases, particularly liver cirrhosis. Violation detoxifying ability of the liver leads to the fact that the toxins that are produced by the decay of the proteins entering the body with food, not inactivated in the liver and enter the blood. Basically it is a neurotoxin that selectively act on brain cells (neurons). This leads to a gradual (sometimes imperceptible to the patient and others) changes in consciousness, intelligence, behavior, and violations on the part of the musculoskeletal system. Imperceptible at first impaired consciousness grow and may become Preko and anyone in violation of orientation in time and space and the confusion and complete lack of consciousness.
One of neurotoxins that cause hepatic encephalopathy is ammonia, which is formed in the large intestine in the processing of protein and urea bacterial microflora. To remove ammonia from the body Dufalac administered.
The therapeutic effect of Duphalac in hepatic encephalopathy due to the fact that it promotes the development of acidophilus (eg lactobacilli). Lactobacilli isolated lactic acid
Lactic acid - shows our health
Acidifying the contents of the colon. High acidity also contributes to the fact that under the normal intestinal microflora lactulose decomposed into organic acids. Acidification content colon causes the ammonia passes into an ionic form, and is then excreted from the body as part of a large amount of feces.
Also, the amount of nitrogen containing toxic substances is reduced due to the fact that certain types of bacteria are used for protein synthesis. Osmotic properties of lactulose (the ability to attract fluid) lead to the Push-Pull with the liquid ammonia from the blood into the intestine. A rapid elimination of stool prevents the formation of nitrogen containing toxic substances end (proximal) section of the intestine, and hence their absorption in the inferior vena cava.
In hepatic encephalopathy Dufalac initially appoint 30-45 ml 3-4 times a day. After reduction of intoxication reduce the dose - it is chosen individually for each patient so that the upholstered chair was two - three times a day. The therapeutic effect of Duphalac comes a day - two after treatment.
