Why swells the stomach in healthy people

The abdomen may swell due to various reasons. Transient swelling can cause excessive swallowing of air while eating or drinking large amounts of carbonated beverages. In these cases, one burps excess air through the mouth, and a part thereof passes into the intestine and absorbed there in its walls, or outputted via the anus. The gases may be formed by allocating them in the process of digestion in the stomach and intestines, as well as the neutralization of gastric juice soda, received heartburn.

The abdomen may swell when taking a large number of easily digestible carbohydrates (sweets, baking) that cause fermentation in the gut reaction, accompanied by the release of gases. A large number of fiber and starch (beans, cabbage, potatoes, brown bread, etc..) And can cause bloating.

Disorders that contribute to flatulence

Flatulence and bloating can cause enzyme deficiency. Thus, bloating sometimes occurs when taking milk, this suggests that the body lacks enzymes for its processing, which is characteristic for almost all adults. Enzyme, whereby the body is processed complex carbohydrate milk sugar (lactose) into simple carbohydrates fructose and glucose Glucose: The energy source  Glucose: The energy source
 It called lactase. Lactase is produced in the small intestine, and if it is not enough, not overcooked milk enters the large intestine, where it helps to digest the bacteria living there. At the same time, a large amount of gases that cause discomfort.

Another cause bloating - goiter, a violation of the ratio of normal and pathogenic microflora in the intestines. In our intestines live permanently and help process food beneficial bacteria - the so-called normal intestinal microflora, which in a healthy person suppresses the activity of pathogenic microflora is also always present in the intestines. Opportunistic pathogens in small quantities are not harmful, but if it becomes a lot, the food is no longer digested in the gut right, begin to dominate the putrefaction in which a large amount of gas.

Stir promote gas through the intestines can be any mechanical obstacles (eg, tumors, intestinal obstruction), in this case, often there is a constant swelling of the coca-specific part of the intestine. Bloating may be in violation of motor activity of the intestine (for example, toxic effects on the muscles of the intestine pathogens of various infections), and circulatory disorders (for example, stagnation in the veins of the intestine with varicose veins). Finally, bloating may occur when mental disorders, for example, hysteria.

Regardless of the cause of the bloating is assigned a diet with the exception of carbohydrate (sweet and baking), crude fiber (cabbage, peas, beans) and fresh bread. It is not recommended to eat plenty of foods rich in starch (eg potatoes).

For the absorption of gases are assigned such drugs as activated carbon Activated carbon - old but indispensable  Activated carbon - old but indispensable
 , White clay, smectite Smecta - necessary in any medicine cabinet  Smecta - necessary in any medicine cabinet

With a lack of enzymes in the body they are administered in the form of drugs, after a preliminary examination. Normal intestinal microflora at dysbacteriosis is restored using drugs probiotics (beneficial bacteria, inhabitants of the intestine) and prebiotics (nutrients that promote proliferation of normal microflora). At pains to prescribe medication, relieving muscle spasms of the gastrointestinal tract (papaverine, no-spa, and so on)

Do not forget that bloating can only be a sign of a gastrointestinal disease that requires careful examination and treatment.

 prevention of worms


The disease, which is ubiquitous, is enterobiasis, caused by a representative of roundworms pinworm. Parasitism is observed only in the human gut (the lower part of the small and the upper sections of the large intestine). The female does not lay eggs directly into the intestine, they descend into the lower intestine after calving maturation of eggs and crawl through the anus. The eggs develop into larvae already lay in the perianal region, often this process takes place at night. In this regard, it should be noted that the eggs can be detected only by means of perianal scrape, in the analysis of feces How to pass a stool, so as not to spoil it  How to pass a stool, so as not to spoil it
   eggs does not happen. For a complete larval development takes up to six hours, after which they become invasive. If there is such ingestion of egg, the person is infected.

Distribution of larvae of worms

The eggs are transferred mainly hands, as a disease accompanied by severe itching. At the time combing the eggs are on the hands, under the nails and is transferred to the human body non-compliance with hygiene measures. Infection occurs not only through contact through dirty hands, as well as through contaminated eggs helminth household items. Most susceptible helminthic infestation children, especially in case of violation of personal hygiene. Long parasitism in the defeat pinworm is also typical for children, due to re-infection by helminths transfer hands. Although pinworms live long in the environment, but they get a body on the bed and underwear, from which scattered dust around the room. This increases the risk of infection even more.

Conducted at enterobioze curative measures will be ineffective if you do not have the strict hygienic measures.

For the prevention of worms need to wash hands thoroughly, it is recommended to monitor the nails to hold the toilet perianal area in the morning and evening. At night, wear briefs that there is no dissipation of eggs in case of infection enterobiasis. Be sure to iron bed and underwear in the room regularly wet cleaning. Children's toys should be sure to wash, to avoid saving them eggs larvae.

Worms in fish

A significant impact on human health has a parasitic infestation of worms flukes class, represented by the cat fluke or opistorhisov. When opistorhoze is the development of a significant inflammatory process in the ducts of the gallbladder Gall bladder: structure and function  Gall bladder: structure and function

 . This conduct is based diagnosis of the disease - determine the presence of helminth eggs in duodenal contents, and in the faeces. This disease has several large epidemic foci, which are located in the basins of the rivers (Ob, Irtysh, Kama and the Dnieper). The most intense focus of this pool of Ob and Irtysh, the population of these coastal areas severely affected opisthorchiasis Opisthorchiasis: parasitic infection of the liver  Opisthorchiasis: parasitic infection of the liver
 . There are other lesions, but these infections populations are not so common. To explain such a defeat coastal residents may be the fact that the pathogen enters the body when consuming fish that bad was subjected to heat treatment.

Fluke has several intermediate hosts for their development. The first owner of this shellfish, and the second are the representatives of carp fish (roach, carp, rudd, bream, barbel, chub and other). The shellfish is the development of the larvae, which then penetrate through the skin into the fish, the larval stage where it ends the cycle of the parasite. It is this stage is invasive for the final host, infection is possible by eating contaminated fish.

Must be observed in the preparation of fish, a pathogen is resistant to high and low temperatures and high concentrations of salt.

You can not eat enough fish deep fried, provyalennuyu, salted and the more raw and frozen.

Prevention of such opisthorchiasis is preparing fish dishes, in which will ensure the destruction of the pathogen in fish larvae. Roast pieces of fish in a flat out kills parasites in 15 minutes. The most at risk of infection with the indigenous people, who have a major fisheries and fish are consumed fresh or salted form.

  • Eat only what is absolutely sure. Unsanitary conditions at cooking increase the risk of detection in the finished dish of hundreds of microscopic parasites that can easily infect humans.
  • Intestinal parasites can penetrate into the human body with the liquid, so the prevention of worms in any case do not drink dirty or boiled water.
  • Any type of raw meat and fish should be subjected to heat treatment. Not until the end of the cooked meat or fish can contain helminth eggs that ultimately enter the body.
  • Keep the house and take a daily bath or shower to protect themselves from intestinal parasites.
