  • Symptoms and Complications

 Chronic pancreatitis
   Chronic pancreatitis - this is an inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Pancreas - a soft, elongated gland located in the upper part of the abdomen, behind the stomach. It is conventionally divided into two parts - the head and body of the pancreas. Through the head of the pancreas passes the bile duct, which then connects to the duodenum, and the body of the pancreas is adjacent to the left kidney and spleen. Because the pancreas is located in the back of the abdomen, diagnose her disease can be very difficult.

Any inflammation of the pancreas called pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis causes severe inflammation and the patient at the same time often requires emergency care. Chronic pancreatitis develops either as a result of several bouts of acute pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis - is easier to prevent than to treat  Acute pancreatitis - is easier to prevent than to treat
 Or damage due to pancreatic having other causes.

Experts believe that the destruction of pancreatic tissue occurs when digestive enzymes, which are stored in the pancreas begin to digest it. As a result of this inflammation begins, and when it stops in the pancreas scarring structure is changed so that the probability of repeated inflammation increases. Due to the repeated for some time attacks and damage to the pancreas gradually loses its ability to produce digestive enzymes in sufficient quantities and to ensure normal digestion of food. This leads to a reduction in weight and more frequent than normal stool; cal thus often has a light color, and contains an excessive amount of fat. In the future destruction of the pancreatic cells that produce insulin The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives  The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives
 May lead to the development of diabetes.

The most common cause of chronic pancreatitis is prolonged alcohol abuse. There is a direct link between excessive alcohol consumption and the development of the disease. Other causes:

  • High levels of calcium in the blood
  • Structural abnormalities, usually congenital
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Elevated triglyceride levels (hypertriglyceridemia)
  • In rare cases, pancreatitis can be caused by taking certain medicines

Sometimes it is not possible to establish the exact cause of chronic pancreatitis. Such violations are called idiopathic pancreatitis.

In chronic pancreatitis may be very different symptoms. Virtually all patients the disease at a given stage of development is accompanied by pain. Its intensity can range from mild to very severe. The pain can last from several hours to several days, and sometimes to cope with it, the patient required a powerful prescription painkillers.

Often the pain is given in the back. It may be increased after meals and / or at night. Character pain may be different, but in most cases it is constant and not undulating.

The mechanism of pain in chronic pancreatitis is not entirely clear. Obviously, it may become stronger after consuming fatty and / or spicy food. The relationship between the intensity of pain and the severity of inflammation of the thyroid gland The thyroid gland - is responsible for your hormones  The thyroid gland - is responsible for your hormones
   is not set.

Diabetes can be both symptoms and complications of chronic pancreatitis. In the process of scarring over time break down the areas in the pancreas that produce insulin, as a result of which develop diabetes.

Diarrhea - another symptom of chronic pancreatitis, which occurs in approximately half of patients with this disorder. Normally fats found in foods are broken down by enzymes of the pancreas Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know  Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
 And then they are absorbed into the wall of the small intestine. Because of the lack of pancreatic enzymes fat practically unchanged enters the colon. There it is partially cleaved by bacteria of the colon; The result is an irritant and colon, as a result, diarrhea.

 enterol gel
 Enterol not available in the form of a gel, but some confuse this medication with enterosgelem. These are completely different drugs with different mechanisms of action. But he and the other may be administered in intestinal infections. So what's the difference between these are similar in name drugs?

 Enterol gel - utter confusion

How does enterol

Enterol - a probiotic that is, a drug that contains beneficial bacteria that suppress the activity of pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic microorganisms. It produces its French pharmaceutical company Biocodex capsules and powders. A feature of the preparation is that it is not retained in the gut for longer than five days and it is derived entirely from not form colonies there.

Active ingredient Enterol are useful yeast - Saccharomyces boulardii. In the intestine, Saccharomyces boulardii are antagonists of pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic microflora, inhibiting its reproduction. Furthermore, they release numerous enzymes that neutralize toxins pathogens of intestinal infections, cleansing thus intestine. The purified intestinal walls improves blood circulation, which leads to activation of the lymphoid tissue which produces immune cells and antibodies.

This action allows you to assign Enterol it not only bacterial, fungal, and protozoal infections, causative agents of which are sensitive to Enterol, and intestinal infections of viral origin.

Of course, you can not expect one this drug to cope with severe intestinal infection, which manifests itself not only diarrhea, and general intoxication of the body fluid loss. Enterol can start taking before the arrival of the physician, but if on the background of his admission fever and enhanced fluid loss, you should call a doctor. Children with diarrhea should call the doctor always - first a mild illness in a child can lead to a sudden deterioration that would require hospitalization.

Enterol appoint and severe intestinal infections in the complex treatment. It is compatible with all medications except antifungal. Therefore, it is not prescribed for severe intestinal candidiasis.

In addition, enterol has a positive effect in intestinal dysbacteriosis Intestinal dysbiosis - how dangerous it is?  Intestinal dysbiosis - how dangerous it is?
 , Chronic bowel disease, various types of enzyme deficiency.

This drug gives a few side effects and almost no contraindications. It can not be used for children up to a year, and if you are hypersensitive. During pregnancy and nursing Breastfeeding - a personal choice  Breastfeeding - a personal choice
   breast enterol recommended be used with caution.

 Enterol gel - utter confusion

How does enterosgel

Enterosgel (active substance - polymethylsiloxane polyhydrate) - is enterosorbent, which is produced by domestic pharmaceutical TNCs Silm in paste form for oral administration.

The paste consists of a silicone matrix having a porous structure in the form of a sponge. Sponge collects and removes infectious agents and their toxins, toxins formed as a result of metabolic disorders Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
   (excess bilirubin, cholesterol, toxic products resulting from the dissolution of the protein and so on), drugs, different allergens ingested toxic substances, radionuclides, and other alcohol.

This enterosgel does not inhibit the process of absorption of nutrients - vitamins and minerals, as their molecules are too small and "slip" through the sponge. It has a favorable effect on the intestinal microflora and do not affect its peristalsis.

Enterosgel not absorbed in the stomach and intestine and excreted in 12 hours after administration.

Enterosgel used not only in acute intestinal infections Acute intestinal infections - the most common disease in the autumn and summer  Acute intestinal infections - the most common disease in the autumn and summer
 But also in chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as any other infections and intoxications. Often used enterosgel in allergic diseases - atopic dermatitis, asthma, food allergies and so on. This preparation is indispensable in any poisoning, appears in the body of internal (endogenous) of toxic substances that accompany severe kidney and liver function of their violation.

From prevention to appoint its employees in hazardous industries chemical and metallurgical industries, have regular contact with salts of heavy metals and so on.

Enterosgel has almost no contraindications and side effects. It is contraindicated for children under years, pregnant women and nursing mothers with insufficient motor activity of the intestine, and a tendency to constipation, as well as its individual intolerance.

Enterol and enterosgel - are completely different drugs. Take them together does not make sense, since enterosgel will display enterol, not allowing him to fully exert its effect.
