How to avoid bloating and pain
June 16, 2014
You have digestive problems? We are surrounded by foods that are hard to digest. How to avoid bloating and sharp pains in the stomach?
Someone can digest only seven kinds of products from these other products can cause stomach pain due to the sensitivity of the digestive system. A fair number of products contain essential nutrients that are well tolerated by the body. But if you suffer from bloating, eliminate them from your diet to see if calm your intestines, and then gradually, one by one, enter the foods in your diet to determine what kind of product is difficult to work your digestive system.
Many foods rich in carbohydrates upset the balance of the intestinal flora, causing an inflammatory process that causes swelling. Identify these products is not difficult: it is flour products (baking or pizza); foods that contain large amounts of sugar (cookies, refined grains, sweets). For example: rolls, drying, muffins, puff pretzel with caraway, pasta, rice crackers.
Cause inflammation and can lead to obesity are three types of fat: trans fats, animal fats and omega 6 fats last just needed by the body, but in moderation. And, nevertheless, most of us consume excessive amounts of omega 6 and omega 3 are not, leading to inflammation. For products containing omega-6 fatty acids include salami, ham, corn oil
Corn oil: the good and the harm to human
, Soybean and sunflower oil, butter, cheese and other dairy products, fast food.
All kinds of milk contain large amounts of lactase, which in turn breaks down in the small intestine on the enzyme lactose. The human body is designed so that reduces the production of the enzyme after termination of breastfeeding. Excessive consumption of foods containing lactase, increases the work of bacteria and provoke the emergence of gas. These products include: ice cream, milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, ricotta (fresh curd cheese), and other varieties of soft cheese.
Fructose is found in many foods that we consume in large quantities. For example, honey and agave syrup contain much more fructose than the V syrup. Products with high content of fructose and cause bloating and diarrhea. Studies have shown that patients who adhered to a diet that does not contain fructose, suffered less belching, bloating, a feeling of heaviness in the stomach or diarrhea. Also, studies have shown that corn syrup promotes weight gain. Foods with a high content of fructose: neluschёny peas, artichoke, beans, asparagus, dried tomatoes and other vegetables, agave syrup, corn syrup, fruit juice concentrate, honey, apples, mangoes, pears, cherries, watermelon and other fruits.
Fructans are a type of dietary fiber and beneficial for digestion and health in general. However, by definition, dietary fiber poorly digested by the human body and cause accumulation of gases in the intestine. Fructans are contained in a great number of products, mainly in cereals. For example: wheat, barley, rye, inulin, figs, grapefruit, plums, nectarines, grapes, black, and green beans, lima beans and soybeans, artichokes
Artichoke and its medical application: help the liver and gall bladder
, Garlic, onions and other vegetables.
Food with a high content of galacto-oligosaccharides contain so-called low-molecular compounds - oligosaccharides. Often, the body lacks the enzymes to break down these compounds, which is why the beans are products which arise from the decay gases. Thus, pulses are notorious that cause bloating. Some kinds of nuts are also rich in galacto-oligosaccharides. These include pistachios, cashew nuts, soybeans, peas, black beans and adzuki beans, lima beans, green, white beans and pinto beans.
Products containing a polyol (alcohol), and often cause pain in the stomach. For example, sorbitol (a type of polyol) contained in blackberry and fruits with stones: peach, plum, apricot, cherries, avocados, nectarines, pears, watermelon. For products containing sorbitol and include cauliflower, mushrooms, peas neluschёny, chewing gum, candies and sugar-free sweeteners.
Have you ever considered the feeling of heartburn and heaviness in the stomach after a meal? The pain is worse at night or when you go to? This burning sensation is caused by the outflow of acid during burping.
If you suffer from heartburn more than twice a week, then you need to consult a doctor as more frequent bouts of heartburn may cause outflow of gastroesophageal reflux. In addition heartburn can cause a dry cough
Dry cough - whether to worry about it?
, Hoarseness, sore throat, problems with vocal cords, chest pain

and trouble swallowing. Your doctor may recommend you stop smoking, lose weight, eat less but more often.
People suffering from diarrhea have diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain, nausea and dehydration. Diarrhea that lasts at least two days, is the result of infection. Chronic diarrhea lasts from two to four weeks and is caused by infection, which is caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites. This infection can be accompanied by fever, blood in the stool, and requires urgent medical treatment.
The most common cause of chronic non-infectious diarrhea, food intolerance is when the body lacks the enzymes to digest food properly, or whether these foods irritate the stomach. In this case, the person is suffering from diarrhea, cramps and bloating.
Diarrhea provokes withdrawal of fluid is the cause of dehydration. For the treatment and prevention of dehydration you must drink more. In this case, better to give preference to ordinary water and avoid caffeine and alcohol.
Treatment of hepatitis C - not an easy task

- Treatment of hepatitis C - not an easy task
Treatment of hepatitis C - a difficult task, as the causative agent of the infection is constantly changing (mutating). In all there are six types and many subtypes of the virus, in Russia mainly dominated by hepatitis viruses 1, 2, and 3 types. The primary goal of treatment for hepatitis C is a persistent suppression of the virus, ie its ability to reproduce (replicate). In the early stages of the disease and possibly cure - removing hepatitis C virus from the body.
How is hepatitis C
Hepatitis can be acute (early disease) and chronic (usually six months after the onset of illness) during the approach to the treatment which is most often different. If acute hepatitis
Hepatitis - the scourge of our time
proceeds not hard, the purpose of active treatment is sometimes delayed (but not more than three months) to enable the body to cope with the infection. Cures for hepatitis C in the acute phase is possible. If after this period iste6cheniya in the blood of a patient is detected viral RNA (RNA HCV), is appointed by antiviral treatment.
In chronic hepatitis C is not a single standard of care and treatment of selected individually, taking into account the genotype of the virus, the general condition of the patient, the condition of his liver and the body's response to previous treatment.
When the outcome of hepatitis C in liver cirrhosis with liver failure patients may require a liver transplant. In this medical treatment should continue as usual after surgery Hepatitis C is returned.
Is there a cure hepatitis C? Yes, it is quite. At the same time, the earlier treatment begins, the better the chances for a full recovery: recover more than half of patients. But sometimes the patient's body does not give an adequate response to treatment. In such cases, appointed by the alternative treatment of hepatitis
Treatment of hepatitis - a difficult task
C. Unfortunately, alternative treatment methods are currently under development. If as a result of the inflammatory process in the liver irreversible changes, they will be impossible to eliminate even after the excretion of hepatitis C virus
Another problem is the cost of treatment of hepatitis C, mainly the cost of antiviral drugs. In some cases, the cost of treatment of hepatitis C up to several tens of thousands of dollars.
Where better to treat hepatitis C? Of course, it is best to treat this disease Hepatitis in specialized centers, which are often located at the base of infectious hospitals.
Treatment of the liver with hepatitis C in the acute phase of the disease
Current hepatitis C is considered to be acute if the duration of the disease is not more than six months. How is hepatitis C treatment in the acute phase? If the patient's condition is stable and no significant violations of the liver, patients received polupostelny regime, diet number 5, excessive drinking and drugs - hepatoprotectors.
If the acute phase of the disease occurs with severe intoxication, fever, nausea, vomiting, increasing jaundice, the patient is assigned to bed rest, diet number 5A (very heavy patients assigned parenteral nutrition in the form of nutrient mixtures that are introduced intravenously) and medication. The latter should be directed to the maximum removal of infectious agents and various toxins from the body (detoxification therapy), as well as to protect liver cells from any harmful effects (hepatoprotectors) and prevention of possible complications of other organs.
Detoxification therapy is the intravenous drip of various medicinal solutions: 5% glucose, saline, gemodeza, volume and frequency of administration which, as well as the duration of treatment are determined by the severity of the patient's condition.
To improve the outflow of bile patients prescribed ursosan (UDCA), which also has a hepatoprotective effect. As hepatoprotectors also nominated essentiale and Kars.
Since hepatitis always occurs digestive disorders, preventing the development of bacterial complications apply broad-spectrum antibiotics
Broad-spectrum antibiotics - not only treat but also cripple
. It should strictly ensure that the patient was a chair on a daily basis, and if not, to carry out cleansing of the bowel using an enema. In severe acute hepatitis C when developing hepatic coma and hepatic encephalopathy, should be resolved the issue of emergency liver transplant.
With a significant reduction of blood clotting, the appearance of hemorrhage and bleeding prescribe a transfusion of fresh frozen plasma to inhibit fibrinolysis (the dissolution of blood clots to prevent bleeding) prescribe drugs from the group of protease inhibitors (gordoks, trasilol, contrycal), which also reduce the risk of autolysis ( autodecomposition) liver cells.
How to cure hepatitis C
Hepatitis C - "the tender murderer"
completely? Antiviral therapy in acute hepatitis C can be administered immediately. If the patient's condition allows it, it is prescribed three months after the onset of the disease if the body is not able to manually remove the pathogen. But in recent years the majority of experts are inclined to believe that in the absence of contraindications antiviral therapy should be administered as soon as possible - it significantly reduces the risk of transition of acute hepatitis C in chronic. The indications for antiviral therapy is to identify particles in a patient's blood for hepatitis C virus RNA (viremia). Treatment begun after the first three months of the disease, leading to complete removal of the body or persistent suppression of replication (reproduction) of hepatitis C virus by more than 80% of patients.
The standard treatment for hepatitis C infection in the acute phase includes prescription drugs from the group of alfa-interferons (interferon - a protein that is produced by cells of the human body in response to the introduction of these viral infections). Effective use as short-acting interferons (e.g., reaferon) and long-acting pegylated interferon (Peg-IFN, for example, Pegasys, PegIntron).
The treatment of hepatitis C in the acute phase of antiviral drugs and their dosage adjusted individually. On average, interferon treatment should last from 12 to 24 weeks. If persistent suppression of the activity of the hepatitis C virus can not be achieved, individually addressed the issue of the appointment of a second antiviral agent belonging to another group of drugs. Most often, this drug is ribaverin.
Recovery treatment of hepatitis C requires limited physical and neuropsychiatric stress, diet number 5, vitamin-mineral supplements and medicines, to facilitate discharge of bile (the infusion of corn stigmas, Flowers of immortelle, holosas et al.). Assigned courses of medical gymnastics. Conduct that should be regularly. After the treatment of hepatitis C patient must regularly (1-2 times a year, depending on the state) to pass examinations: blood tests for the presence of HCV RNA
