Kavamatel - a drug that helps the stomach

Kvamatel refers to a group of drugs called histamine H2-receptor blockers. The biologically active substance and a neurotransmitter (substance by nerve impulses which are transmitted), histamine stimulates gastric acid secretion and thus eliminate its operation amount and acidity of the gastric juice is reduced.

But that is not all. Under the influence kvamatel increased number of mucus that coats the walls of the stomach and protects them from the action of gastric juice. The mucus contains a large amount of glycoproteins and alkalizing substances also protect the stomach wall. But the main defense is that the walls of the stomach increases the amount of biologically active substances prostaglandins are actively protecting the stomach from any adverse effects.

Prostaglandins are particularly vulnerable when taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are often long and take patients suffering from diseases of the joints and spine. Such patients often develop erosive and ulcerative processes in the stomach and duodenum due to the suppression function of prostaglandins. H1 histamine receptor blockers, restoring the synthesis of prostaglandins, contribute to the improvement of these patients.

Kvamatel also promotes healing of ulcers and stop gastrointestinal bleeding.

Which diseases appoint kvamatel, and when it is contraindicated

Based on the mechanism of action kvamatel, it is used for many diseases of the digestive organs, when required suppression of gastric acid secretion. But before you assign it, you must examine the patient, because the reception is kvamatel may mask the initial manifestations of gastric cancer Stomach cancer: genetics and lifestyle  Stomach cancer: genetics and lifestyle
 That would facilitate its later identification.

Treatment kavmatelom subject gastritis with increased secretion, peptic ulcer and duodenal ulcer in the stomach, which developed as a result of stress and NSAIDs, adenoma of the pancreas (which stimulates the secretion of gastric juices and promotes the development of multiple ulcers in the stomach and duodenum, a condition called Zollinger-Ellison syndrome). Kvamatel has special significance for the treatment of reflux oesophagitis - inflammatory diseases of the esophagus caused by the frequent throwing acidic stomach contents into the lower esophagus. Reduction of acidity promotes a significant reduction of inflammation in this disease.

Kvamatel often prescribed not only at an exacerbation of these diseases, but also in remission in order to prevent the development of exacerbations. From prevention to kvamatel sometimes prescribed prior to general anesthesia in order to avoid accidental contact with acidic stomach contents into the respiratory tract.

Kvamatel contraindicated in case of hypersensitivity of the patient to its components, during pregnancy and nursing Breastfeeding - a personal choice  Breastfeeding - a personal choice
   feeding, children. With care it is prescribed for severe liver and kidney diseases in violation of their functions.

How to take and overdose

The dosage and duration of the course kvamatel prescribed by a doctor. Tablets are often taken once a day, at night, without chewing, and regardless of the meal. Sometimes administered twice a day, and in such cases it is taken in the morning and evening. Cancel kvamatel gradually, as the sudden interruption of its reception may develop withdrawal symptoms.

With Zollinger-Ellison syndrome kvamatel administered every six hours in very large doses, selecting them individually according to the condition and state of health of the patient.

Independently take kvamatel dangerous as prolonged decline in gastric acidity may lead to other, equally serious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

Overdose kvamatel manifested as vomiting, agitation, trembling of the limbs and body, a sharp decline in blood pressure, which can lead to collapse. In this case, the patient should immediately call an ambulance, as long as it goes, gastric lavage.

Kvamatel has a number of side effects, and this is another reason why it can not be taken alone. Side effects may occur on the part of the digestive system, circulatory system, blood, central nervous system, may be reduced hearing and vision, develop hormonal disorders Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous  Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous

Creon - the use of the enzyme preparation

September 25, 2013

 Creon use
 Creon - the use of the drug must be in violation of the pancreas. In addition, Creon is used for violations of the other digestive organs, and sometimes healthy people after consuming large amounts of fatty foods.

 Creon - the use of the enzyme preparation

Application of Creon in violation of the pancreas

Violation of the pancreas often develops pancreatitis. After acute inflammation of the pancreas of the cells is replaced with connective tissue - it leads to a reduction of pancreatic secretion and maldigestion.

Creon in this case, the substitution role, as it contains pancreatin, derived from pig pancreas. Pancreatin has a complex structure, it consists of enzymes that help digest fats (lipase), carbohydrates (amylase) and proteins (proteases), so it is able to fully restore the digestive process. Assign Creon pancreatitis is only worsening.

Creon is often prescribed as replacement therapy in severe and hereditary diseases of the pancreas Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know  Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
 . For example, in cystic fibrosis Cystic fibrosis: early diagnosis - the key to recovery  Cystic fibrosis: early diagnosis - the key to recovery
   (fibrocystic changes in the pancreas) and Shvahmana Diamond syndrome (congenital hypoplasia of the pancreas, coupled with a reduction in the number of leukocytes in the blood, low growth and bone anomalies). Creon in this case is assigned to long-term.

Substitution therapy also need in pancreatic cancer, state after complete or partial removal of the pancreas, and some other diseases of the body, accompanied by a decrease in its functions.

 Creon - the use of the enzyme preparation

Application of Creon in violation of the liver and biliary tract

In the case where the duodenum bile falls less than that required for digestion, digestion disorders begin. Bile is involved mainly in the digestion of fatty foods, and if it is low, even a slight violation of the diet can cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Signs of digestive disorders develop when clogged bile ducts (including, if the background of stagnant bile developed hepatitis), after removal of the gallbladder and liver cirrhosis. In the latter case, the cause inadequate secretion of bile is progressively decreasing number of liver cells (they are replaced by connective tissue).

Creon contains enzymes that break down fats, which make up for the lack of bile and "take over" its function. A special feature is its Creon Capsule Creon comprises a plurality of microspheres (small balls), which after the dissolution of the capsule mixed with food masses and enter the duodenum. Here, in an alkaline medium, the shell of the microspheres and soluble enzymes are active in the digestion of food.

Application of Creon in violation of the stomach

Violation of the functions of the stomach and leads to digestive disorders. Especially disturbed digestion in the partial or complete removal of the body (and gastrotomy gastrectomy).

Violation of the motor activity of the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, reduction of acid-forming function of the stomach, stenosis (narrowing) of the pylorus (the narrowed part of the stomach in the place of his move to the duodenum) can lead to stagnation of food in the stomach and duodenum. Due to the stagnation of food digesting it becomes wrong, there are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms  Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms

Creon well copes with such situations. Capsule it dissolves in the junction of the stomach to the duodenum, the microspheres are mixed with the gastric contents into duodenum and enzymes are released from the microspheres, contributing to the rapid digestion and transfer it to other sections of the intestine. Quick release duodenum helps to speed up the liberation of the masses of food and duodenum.

Application of Creon in violation of the bowel

In violation of the small intestine wall digestion can develop congenital deficiency of certain enzymes, such as lactase - an enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactose). Such disorders can occur as a result of cell death wall of the small intestine produces digestive enzymes in inflammatory bowel diseases (e.g. Crohn's disease) and other pathologies.

Finally, the common intestinal bacteria overgrowth and when it expands the lumen of the increased amount of pathogenic microflora.

In all these cases the use of Creon help Creon - medicine to help digestion  Creon - medicine to help digestion
 Which helps break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and accelerate the promotion of stool through the intestines.
