In clinical practice, the digestive enzyme commonly prescribed drugs that improve the function, for example, festal. Indications for use festal may vary from these severe hereditary diseases such as cystic fibrosis to digestive disorders in healthy people associated with defects in power.
Indications for use festal in diseases of the digestive system
With prolonged duration of various diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas
Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
, Liver or biliary tract in varying degrees, reduced function of the patient's body, and this, in turn, can not affect the rest of the state organs and the whole process of digestion.
Festal is an enzyme preparation, which consists of pancreatin

, Hemicellulase and dry extract of bovine blood. Pancreatin - a complex enzyme preparation, having in its composition proteins digesting enzymes (proteases), fats (lipase) and carbohydrates (amylase). The drug is available in the form of pills, coated tablets, dissolves in the duodenum. After dissolution of all components included in the festal digestion and promote proper digestion.
As a result of the exchange rate or DC (depending on the disease and the function of the digestive system) application festal food is digested without the formation of toxic substances and gases, being the patient recovers. In addition, partially restored and a private enzymatic activity of the digestive system of the patient - festal stimulates this process.
Festal (readings determined by the physician) is prescribed for chronic gastritis with low gastric secretory function, chronic gastroduodenitis, malabsorption of certain substances in the small intestine (malabsorption syndrome), chronic inflammatory processes in the pancreas (chronic pancreatitis), cystic fibrosis

(a hereditary disease in which the pancreas loses its function), some diseases of the liver and biliary tract, which decreases the secretion of bile, or the process of excretion into the intestinal lumen.
Indications for use in other diseases festal
Some patients with dyspepsia arise against other diseases. For example, digestion is often disturbed in patients who are in a long time stationary - patients with stroke, myocardial infarction, multiple sclerosis

and so on. Often indigestion is broken against various operations and injuries, especially after a general anesthesia.
In all these cases come to the aid of enzyme preparations. Festal such patients prescribed courses whose duration and dosage of the drug chosen doctor for each patient individually. If the disease is long, these treatments regularly occasion, patients after surgery or injury sometimes only one - two courses of treatment.
Indications for use before diagnostic studies
Diagnosis is sometimes impossible to lead from the accumulation of large amounts of gas in the intestines of the patient. For example, during X-ray examination of the abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal gas it looks like dark spots on the background that are not visible changes in the studied organs.
To avoid this, two or three days before the study, patients administered festal - it improves digestion, which leads to a decrease in gas formation.
Emergency indications for festal
Sometimes there and urgent indications for festal and not always only sick people. Quite often it is necessary to apply to healthy people. Indications for its use are acute digestive disorders such as nausea, vomiting, flatulence (accumulation of large amounts of gas in the intestines), intestinal colic.
Such events usually occur at various errors in the diet. It is understood that humans, suffering from gastrointestinal disease, such problems are more likely than healthy. However, in healthy people with overeating, drinking large amounts of fatty meat food or sweets may appear digestive disorders. In this case, the extra help festal reception.
Do not just forget that this drug should be taken during or immediately after a meal. It can take two pills three times a day until complete disappearance of the phenomena of discomfort.
Festal - a drug that you can have in your home medicine cabinet.
