- Treatment of hepatitis - a difficult task
Treatment of hepatitis requires an individual approach, as for this disease is closely related to the individual characteristics of the organism. In addition, for effective treatment is necessary to conduct a thorough examination of the patient and establish the correct diagnosis of the disease.
How to cure the liver from hepatitis
Fully cured only acute forms of viral hepatitis. Good to treat viral hepatitis A and E, they almost never become chronic. Can I recover from viral hepatitis with chronic? Probably not, but at the time begun appropriate treatment it is possible to keep the liver in good condition.
It is very difficult to treat advanced cases of chronic viral hepatitis. But the special perfidy different hepatitis C
Hepatitis C - "the tender murderer"
, Which was named the tender murderer because asymptomatic, dead virus to antivirals and severe complications such as cirrhosis and liver cancer.
Toxic hepatitis, including alcohol and drugs respond well to treatment and reverse the development of a full or partial recovery of liver function. But such an outcome is only possible in the case where hepatitis
Hepatitis - the scourge of our time
I not moved to cirrhosis.
Autoimmune hepatitis treated with difficulty, but for them it is possible to choose an adequate course of treatment that will suspend the progression of the disease.
Diet for hepatitis
Diet for hepatitis - is a form of treatment. It reduces the load on all organs of the digestive system, the liver will offload and restore its metabolism in cells. Diet for hepatitis to be observed constantly. In acute processes it should be strict (table number 5A) during remission - multiple expansion (table number 5).
A table number 5 - is mechanically and chemically gentle diet with normal protein and carbohydrates, some reduced fat and salt. Proteins and carbohydrates are contained in the dishes in accordance with the physiological norm. Prepare all steamed or boiled, cooked dishes rubbed. From the daily diet excludes cold dishes, enhancing the processes of fermentation (peas, beans) and decay (fatty meats) in the gut, stimulating the secretion of bile, gastric juice and pancreatic juice. You can not eat spicy seasonings, meats, foods rich in essential oils (onions, garlic, radishes, radish). Ginger is also contraindicated in hepatitis because it can stimulate the secretion of the glands of the digestive system.
Table number 5 is designed to restore impaired liver function, mechanical schazheniya of the gastrointestinal tract. A diet full with some restriction of animal fats. All meals are prepared by cooking, steamed or baked in the oven. Food is not wiped.
Diet: eating small portions of food at the same hours 5-6 times a day.
How to treat viral hepatitis
Viral hepatitis is treated with antiviral drugs, in particular interferons - alpha. Interferon - a protective protein produced by various cells of the human body in response to infection with viruses. Widely used recombinant and natural alpha interferons: human leukocyte interferon vellferon, viferon, reaferon, Roferon-A, Introit-A Interal, realdiron and others.
Also today, for the treatment of viral hepatitis are available drugs containing interferon, chemically bound to the polymer polyethylene glycol, high molecular weight. Such drugs called pegylated interferon. They have a duration of action can increase the duration of action.
Administration of interferon can be replaced by drugs that stimulate the body's own cells, interferon (interferon inducers). These drugs are neovir, tsikloferon
TSikloferon - restores the body's defenses
Treatment of HCV with interferon combined with the use of other medications. For example, in the treatment of hepatitis B often prescribe a combination of alpha - interferon with another antiviral drug - lamivudine. It blocks the synthesis of viral DNA and RNA, replacing the natural nucleosides, and thereby inhibiting viral multiplication. Doses and duration of treatment are selected at the same time individually.
For the treatment of hepatitis C alpha-interferon is used in combination with the antiviral drug ribavirin. Combined treatment with interferon-alpha and ribavirin can be for the majority of patients the only way of salvation. But the latter has a lot of side effects and contraindications, so is not suitable for all patients. At intolerance of ribavirin administered subcutaneous administration of peginterferon alfa-2b once a month for six months. Detoxification therapy for hepatitis
In severe hepatitis of any origin administered intravenous drip medicinal solutions that remove toxins from the body. Such solutions include 0, 9% sodium chloride (saline), 5% glucose solution, Ringer's solution, and others.
Almost always detoxication therapy Combination with adsorbents that remove toxins from the intestines. Thus, activated carbon
Activated carbon - old but indispensable
hepatitis cleans the intestines, preventing harmful substances re-absorbed into the bloodstream. The treatment must be short in order to, together with the toxins from the intestine do not derive useful microorganisms.
