Linex - for prevention of dysbacteriosis

February 4, 2010

 Dysbacteriosis (the content in the intestines large number of pathogenic microflora) now occurs often enough - that contribute to the uncontrolled use of antibiotics, poor diet and the deteriorating environmental situation. For the treatment of dysbiosis produced special drugs - probiotics.

 Linex - for prevention of dysbacteriosis

What lineks

Lineks - a probiotic, i.e. a preparation which contains live bacteria useful - natural inhabitants of the intestine to help digest food, to synthesize some vitamins (involved in the synthesis of vitamins B B vitamins: the body useful helpers  B vitamins: the body useful helpers
   - B1, B2, PP, folic acid, B6, B12, and vitamin K, E, C) and to prevent significant growth of harmful microorganisms. The structure lineksa includes three types of beneficial bacteria, revitalizing the different sections of the intestine: the bifidobacteria (heals mainly the large intestine), lactobacilli and lactic streptococci (these two bacterial species heals mainly the small intestine). The Linex contains only strains of microorganisms resistant to antibiotics. Once in the gut, a part of lineksa beneficial bacteria begin to multiply and do the work of the natural intestinal flora.

Lactobacilli and lactic streptococci facilitate proper splitting in the small intestine the main ingredients of food (proteins, fats and carbohydrates). Complex carbohydrates are decomposed correctly even if the body does not produce an enzyme to decompose lactose (lactase). Those food ingredients that do not suck in the small intestine, and went into a thick, helping to break down bifidobacteria. The latter also helps digest protein in the intestines of infants.

Improvement bowel occurs due to the fact that the beneficial lactic acid bacteria synthesize Lactic acid - shows our health  Lactic acid - shows our health
 Which creates an unfavorable environment for the development of opportunistic and pathogenic microorganisms.

Lactic acid environment is favorable for the intestinal absorption of iron, calcium and vitamin D.

Bacteria contained in lineks involved in the decomposition process of bile acids, as well as during re-absorption of bile acid portion.

Total live lyophilized (dried in a special way) bacteria contained in a capsule lineksa is not less than 1.2 x 10 7. All bacteria are grown on media containing antibacterial agents, therefore immune to their action.

Indications and contraindications for receiving lineksa

Admission lineksa shown at dysbacteriosis, both adults and children, which can manifest itself in the form of diarrhea alternating with constipation, persistent constipation, bloating (signs of improper digestion of food), nausea, vomiting, pain during bowel. In infants dysbiosis manifested in the form of regurgitation.

Dysbacteriosis may develop on the background of any chronic disease, frequent use of antibiotics Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?  Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?
 , Malnutrition. In infants in the first months of life always dysbiosis, microflora appears normal ratio is usually in the second half of life.

Linex is used for the prevention of dysbiosis.

Contraindications lineksa is the only idiosyncrasy of its components.

Sometimes when taking lineksa showing signs of food allergies, which often occurs at the dairy. However, in this case it is recommended to interrupt the course lineksa until until the set true cause allergies.

How to take lineks

The treatment lineksa assigned physician, and depends on the disease and the general state of the patient. Standard treatment lineksom - one month.

  • Children under two years lineks designate capsule three times a day with a small amount of water or infant formula Dairy mixture - selection of useful power  Dairy mixture - selection of useful power
 . Infants in the contents of the capsule spilling teaspoonful and diluted with water - it does not cause the death of bacteria useful as gastric acidity in infants is lower than in adults.
  • Babies after two years prescribed 1 - 2 capsules 3 times a day. They are also required to drink a small amount of liquid.
  • Adults lineks appointed 2 capsules 3 times a day with a small amount of liquid.
  • Linex taken after a meal, as before a meal gastric acidity is too high, and contained in the Linex bacteria are killed. Postprandial gastric juice decreases, and free bacteria pass into the intestine.
  • Do not drink hot drinks or lineks alcohol - it can adversely affect the livelihoods of bacteria.

Linex - a probiotic that when properly enough long-term use under medical supervision can cope with dysbiosis, both children and adults.

Gastrointestinal infections - from poor quality food to the dirty hands

February 13, 2014

 gastrointestinal infections
 Gastrointestinal infections can develop from taking contaminated food transmitted from an infected person through hands contaminated with feces, food and water, the source of infection may be meat and eggs. The best prevention of such infections is good hygiene.


Why start gastrointestinal infections

Gastrointestinal infections are always a consequence of entering into the body of certain pathogens. Thus, the cause of acute gastritis is most often the poor quality food, so this infection is called food poisoning.

Intestinal infections occur in the transmission of pathogens of bacterial or viral origin from the patient to health through dirty hands, food and water.


Gastrointestinal infections - that occurs in the body

When gastrointestinal infections in the patient develops the following picture. Toxins pathogens affect the cells of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines, violating their basic functions. In addition, toxins and improper digestion products inhibit the activity of some enzymes, breaking the wall digestion process.

Under the action of toxins break down the proteins of cell membranes, the permeability of the intestinal walls and toxins penetrate deeper into the intestinal wall. As a result, in the intestinal lumen formed biologically active substances that have strong toxic influence on the blood vessel wall of the intestine. Violated microcirculation first in the gut, and then (for severe infections), and throughout the body.

Under the influence of toxins by increased fragility and permeability of small blood vessels, blood stagnation occurs, thrombosis Thrombosis - the cause of heart attack and stroke  Thrombosis - the cause of heart attack and stroke
   vessels and hemorrhage. Poor circulation leads to disruption of cell metabolism in tissues, cells accumulate in toxic products of incomplete metabolism and changes in acidity - metabolic acidosis.

The same violations of the microcirculation in the liver, which leads to disruption of its functions. A major function of the liver is to neutralize poisons and when it is broken, toxins freely enter the blood, causing a general intoxication.

Stagnation of blood in the capillaries and leads to the fact that part of the fluid, minerals and plasma proteins begin to leak from the vascular space into the extracellular and then in the intestinal lumen and excreted. In severe gastro-intestinal infections, diarrhea is constant, but without stool - is excreted blood plasma, which leads to dehydration.

The loss of large amounts of fluid leads to disruption of the cardiovascular system. In order to fill the vascular system of a liquid, there is vasospasm of skin (the patient becomes very pale) and muscle spasm, allowing to "squeeze" the liquid from the intercellular space. Due vasospasm decreases as fluid excretion by the kidneys.

The kidneys suffer because of the toxic effects and reduce blood volume, a hundred further enhances effects of acidosis, the payment of which is due to the activation of respiration.

Exposure to toxins, poor blood circulation, lack of oxygen and acidosis lead to dysfunction of the brain. Growing headache, there are violations of consciousness, seizures, and hypovolemic (amid a sharp reduction in circulating blood volume) shock, which can lead to death of the patient.


Acute gastritis and gastroenteritis - food poisoning

Very often the cause of food poisoning are Salmonella that enter the body via contaminated food (pies, cakes, creams, not fully processed animal flesh, eggs) and water. Peak food poisoning is in the summer.

The disease begins in one to three days after infection - the time required for adequate reproduction in the gut pathogens. It begins food poisoning Food poisoning: how to avoid becoming a victim of its own stomach  Food poisoning: how to avoid becoming a victim of its own stomach
   with nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fever, chills, headache, malaise. After some time, diarrhea joined to 10-15 times a day. The patient pale, with a strong intoxication may appear jerking and impaired consciousness.

This period is dangerous because the loss of large amounts of fluid from the stool and vomit of the patient may become dehydrated. Another complication of salmonellosis Salmonellosis - features of the disease  Salmonellosis - features of the disease
   - The emergence of foci of inflammation in the internal organs - the infection spreads to the bloodstream. After suffering food poisoning may be a significant decrease in immunity.

Treatment of acute gastritis and gastroenteritis - drinking plenty of fluids, light food, symptomatic and restorative treatment. If the diagnosis is confirmed salmonellosis prescribe antibiotics Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?  Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?
 . After recovery is necessarily spent examination of feces for the presence of an infectious agent.

Gastrointestinal infections are dangerous because it is difficult to predict when and to what extent can worsen the patient's condition.
