How to take rehydron diarrhea and vomiting

With diarrhea and vomiting, fluid is lost, and with it the salt, resulting in dehydration occurs and disturbs the function of all organs and tissues. The skin and mucous membranes become dry at the same time, disturbed function of muscles, including the skeletal to (appear lethargy, weakness and incoordination), and smooth, located in the internal organs and blood vessels (developing heart failure, decreased blood pressure). He suffers from the nervous system - there are convulsions, delirium, if the patient is not just help, it develops a coma.

Regidron comprises potassium salt, which is largely confined to cells and tissues of the sodium present in the intercellular space. The right balance between potassium and sodium support the normal osmotic pressure in the tissues, restores muscle tissue - the patient becomes more active, decreased heart rate, blood pressure is stabilized, are signs of intoxication. With contained in rehydron Regidron - will help restore the water-salt balance  Regidron - will help restore the water-salt balance
   sodium citrate restored acid-base balance.

Before you start taking rehydron solution, it is desirable to weigh in (if available) - according to how quickly will decrease the weight of the body, the doctor will prescribe a daily dose of the drug. It will be equal to double the volume of the weight loss in milliliters. For example, the patient had lost 300 g body weight, means must drink 600 ml within the first 6-10 hours. If the patient has nausea and vomiting is significantly better to take the cooled solution rehydron. Thereafter, if the patient continues to lose fluid within days rehydron designate special circuit inside (about 80-100 ml per kg of weight per day) or hospitalized for fluid replacement with intravenous solutions.

How to take rehydron with dehydration associated with overheating or high physical exertion

When overheating and high physical exercise a person can lose a lot of fluids and salts through sweat. Such a condition can develop in the bath Sauna and health: the benefits and harms of bath procedures  Sauna and health: the benefits and harms of bath procedures
 , Sauna, during intensive sports training, the travelers in tropical countries, in the mountains. This heavy toll on the cardiovascular and nervous system. Signs of violations of water-salt metabolism in this case are the heartbeat and weakness against the backdrop of a sharp decline in blood pressure, headache, dizziness Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet  Dizziness - if the ground is slipping from under his feet
 , Incoordination, confusion, convulsions, coma.

Regidron prescribed in such cases, without waiting for the serious condition of the patient, ie the appearance of dry skin and mucous membranes, coupled with weakness and palpitations. And even better when overheating and heavy physical exertion start taking rehydron before symptoms of dehydration, as a prophylactic measure.

Rehydron solution prepared in accordance with the instructions take on half a glass every five minutes. During the first half hour of a person to drink 0, 5 to 0, 9 liters of a solution rehydron.

Is it possible to overdose rehydron

Yes, if you take the solution to a greater extent than indicated in the instructions. Can lead to overdosing and improper preparation of the solution, a solution obtained if the concentration is too high. Elevated levels of sodium in the blood can cause weakness, drowsiness, muscle jerking, confusion, coma, respiratory failure. If the patient suffers from a serious kidney disease in violation of their functions may develop disorders of acid-base balance shifted in the direction indicators alkalizing (alkalosis). Symptoms of alkalosis are muscle twitching and convulsions.

If the patient were slight signs of overdose rehydron, then simply stop taking it. If symptoms of dosage increase, the correction of water-salt metabolism is possible only in a hospital under laboratory control.

Candidiasis intestinal - the scourge of our time

 intestinal candidiasis
 Intestinal candidiasis is very common today. It generally develops in the use of antibiotics. And since many treated with antibiotics Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?  Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?
   independently, without considering it necessary to consult a doctor, fungi of the genus Candida gaining new spaces.

 Candidiasis intestinal - the scourge of our time


Intestinal candidiasis - a disease associated with the growth of the volume of one of the types of opportunistic intestinal microflora - yeast fungi genus Candida. Normally, the reproduction of these fungi is controlled by beneficial intestinal microflora - it suppresses excessive growth of any pathogenic microflora.

The major predisposing factors for the development of intestinal candidiasis two - a reduced immunity and a reduction in the amount of normal intestinal microflora. Immunosuppression may be temporary and wearing a physiological nature, for example, in young children the immune system is not yet fully matured, pregnant women it decreased due to hormonal changes in the body, the elderly - by intoxication, and stress reducing immunity is a violation of state of the central nervous system. Abnormal immune disorders or immune deficiencies may be primary (congenital) and secondary (AIDS, intoxication with severe diseases, such as malignant tumors, diabetes mellitus), while taking certain medications such as glucocorticoids.

Reduction of normal intestinal microflora may also occur due to intoxication in various diseases. But more often it occurs in the treatment of antibacterial drugs, which inhibit the growth of the entire bacterial flora - pathogenic, opportunistic and normal. The growth of fungi of the genus Candida antibiotics do not suppress, so they are free to multiply.

Today, share a non-invasive candidiasis and invasive. Invasive or penetrates inside the body, candidiasis developing in the implementation of filamentous forms of the fungus Candida in the tissue. In this disease process may evolve as a whole on the mucous membrane of the intestine (intestinal generalized candidiasis), and in the separate portions of its modified, for example, in ulcers and polyps (focal gastrointestinal candidiasis).

A non-invasive candidiasis caused by fungi of the usual form of Candida and represents volume increase of the microflora in the intestinal lumen, leading to digestive disorders and general intoxication. That is a non-invasive intestinal candidiasis - is actually a type of intestinal dysbiosis.

 Candidiasis intestinal - the scourge of our time


Manifestations of intestinal candidiasis are not always typical and pronounced. Most significant changes in the gut with invasive candidiasis accompanied by small intestinal symptoms, so the diagnosis of candidiasis is not always set in time.

For generalized intestinal invasive candidiasis characterized by the same symptoms as for ulcerative colitis: bloating, pain during bowel, spastic nature, blood and mucus in the stools. Often at the same time you can see the signs of oral candidiasis Oral candidiasis - affects not only children  Oral candidiasis - affects not only children
   and tongue and the genitals, a small but lasting fever.

When invasive lesions of the rectum, pain during defecation, false urge to defecate (tenesmus), fresh blood in the stool. Sometimes developing candidiasis the skin around the anus. Invasive candidiasis can be complicated by the formation of bowel perforation in the wall of the intestine ulcers, causing peritonitis (inflammation of the serous membrane covering the inside of the abdominal cavity and all the organs that it contains). With the destruction of the walls of blood vessels feeding the gut may start bleeding internally. Invasive candidiasis may also be complicated by the proliferation of other organs and tissues and septicemia (blood poisoning).

For non-invasive candidiasis characterized dysbacteriosis: alternating constipation and diarrhea, bloating, abdominal discomfort. And most importantly - this type of candidiasis respond well to treatment with antifungal drugs, whereas in invasive candidiasis, a clear trend is not detected.

Diagnosis and treatment

It confirms the diagnosis study of feces for the presence of fungi genus Candida, including in the form of crop on nutrient media to clarify the pathogen and its sensitivity to antifungal drugs. Identification of fungi of the genus Candida in this matter only when there are signs of intestinal candidiasis.

Be sure to also performed endoscopic diagnosis - colonoscopy Preparing and conducting a colonoscopy: the risks and alternatives  Preparing and conducting a colonoscopy: the risks and alternatives
 And, if necessary, and radiography of the intestine. Diagnosis candidiasis intestine can be quite complex, such as focal intestinal forms invasive candidiasis in a sufficient amount to identify fungi of the genus Candida, even when endoscopy is not always possible. Research was also conducted immunity.

Treatment of intestinal candidiasis held antifungal drugs, which shows the sensitivity of the infectious agent (in accordance with the laboratory data). This selects the drugs that are not absorbed into the bloodstream, providing maximum therapeutic effect in the intestinal lumen (e.g., pimafutsin). Work is also correction of immunity.

Detection and treatment of intestinal candidiasis - is prevention of severe complications of the common fungal infection Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat  Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat
