What is cholecystitis

Cholecystitis - an inflammation of the gallbladder wall. Cholecystitis occurs more often in the background of stagnation of bile in the gall bladder. This can occur in the presence of gallbladder stones, tumors, spasm of the sphincter (circular muscle) that blocks the output of bile from the gallbladder into the duodenum 12, with malnutrition (especially in very rare meals).

Acute cholecystitis can start suddenly (for example, gallstones), in which case the patient requires emergency care, and in some cases surgery. But more often the disease develops gradually and requires long-term complex treatment, a role in which plays a health food.

Basic principles of diet in chronic cholecystitis

As in the gallbladder bile stasis is permanent, the main task of clinical nutrition - unload the gallbladder. Nature has arranged so that the gallbladder contracts under the influence of food intake, so the more often during the day food is consumed, the less stagnation in the gallbladder.

Meals have to be gentle for the cells of the liver, because the stagnation in the gallbladder Gall bladder: structure and function  Gall bladder: structure and function
   is bound to cause stagnation in the biliary tract, which will impact on the work of the liver cells. Bile stasis becomes viscous, it reduces its ability to emulsify fats and activate digestive enzymes.

No less important is the principle of sparing the stomach and intestines that are sure to suffer with chronic cholecystitis, which aggravates its course.

In patients with chronic cholecystitis diet should be sufficient amount of protein (lean meat, fish, dairy products, cheese), carbohydrates (vegetables, fruits, cereals), fats (butter and vegetable oils are well tolerated by patients and contribute to the emptying of the gallbladder). This power must pursue chemical, mechanical and thermal tranquility of the gastrointestinal tract.

Diet during exacerbation of chronic cholecystitis

When aggravation cholecystitis patients prescribed bed rest and hunger for 1-2 days. It is recommended to drink plenty of fluids in the form of weak tea, diluted fruit juices, fruit drinks, fruit compotes.

After the phenomenon of acute cholecystitis subside, appoint an extended diet consisting of liquid and semi-liquid pyurirovannyh easily digestible dishes (vegetable and dairy soups, vegetable and meat sauce, cereals, dairy products, jelly). The daily amount of food during this period should not exceed half the usual amount, food intake must be 6 times per day. Such food is also appointed for 1-2 days.

With the improvement of the diet appointed, recommended in chronic cholecystitis.

 , Radish, smoked and salty dishes, mushrooms, any broths (except vegetable).

The following products requiring exclusion from the diet - high-melting fats. This fat contained in any meat. The digestion of fats in chronic cholecystitis broken, so their use can cause exacerbation of the disease. Poorly digested as fatty fish and sausages.

It is necessary to also forget about sweets and confectionery, chocolate, strong tea and coffee - these products also are difficult to digest and requires a voltage fermentovydelitelnoy function of the gastrointestinal tract. Nor should eat foods rich in roughage (peas, beans, wholemeal bread) - this can cause the accumulation of gas in the intestines and aggravation cholecystitis.

Patients with cholecystitis not recommend taking cold foods (ice cream, soda water, just cold dishes) - it will cause spasm of the gall bladder, which will increase the stagnation of bile.

To prepare the meat used lean beef, chicken, fish - lean river and sea fish. Well suited cod - it contains a large number of substances that contribute to the proper absorption of fats. The diet must be present low-fat dairy products and cheese. Several times a week you can eat boiled soft-boiled egg or scrambled eggs for a couple.

If you believe the results of a new medical study, consumption of certain fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer Breast cancer - the verdict?  Breast cancer - the verdict?
 And can also help stop its development. And although the "anti-cancer diet" does not exist, the enrichment of the diet certain fruits and vegetables does reduce the likelihood of developing cancer, according to scientists of the American Association for Research in Cancer (American Association for Cancer Research).

Their results confirm the data obtained in previous studies linking and increased consumption of fruits and vegetables with a reduced risk of cancer.

In particular, scientists recommend to eat more ezhevikoobraznoy raspberries (it lowers the risk of cancer of the esophagus) and raw cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli (to prevent the development of cancer of the bladder).

"However, despite this discovery," magical "products that can guarantee to protect against cancer, does not exist - says Laura Kresty, MD, associate professor of nutrition at the Center for Cancer Research at Ohio State University, who participated in the study. - We conclude that the most important - to consume as much fresh fruit and vegetables, with a wide variety, depending on the season. Your goal - to try to increase the total intake of fruits and vegetables, as well as the vegetation is your diet. "

Ezhevikoobraznaya raspberries reduce the risk of cancer of the esophagus

Kresty and her colleagues found that regular consumption of raspberry ezhevikoobraznoy really reduces the likelihood of developing esophageal cancer, especially among people belonging to risk groups. Previously, animal experiments have shown that ezhevikoobraznaya raspberry constrains the development of cancers of the digestive tract, esophagus and colon.

Preventive effect of this berry is based on the reduction of oxidative stress How to beat stress? Create an oasis  How to beat stress? Create an oasis
   - Destruction of cells by free radicals, and reducing the DNA damage and increase cell growth rate.

After experiments on animals, scientists have decided to extend the field of research and examined the patients, which is in the esophagus precancerous condition (Barrett's esophagus). Patients with this diagnosis risk of esophageal cancer Esophageal cancer: look for the cause in the diet  Esophageal cancer: look for the cause in the diet
   30-40 times higher than the rest. Let us not forget that the cancer - a fatal disease, the survival rate at 5 years is only 15%

The study of 20 patients daily for 26 weeks to eat about 50 grams (men - more) ezhevikoobraznoy frozen raspberries.

"We measured the indicators of oxidative stress - says Kresty. - One of the indicators - substance called 8-isoprostane as contained in urine. At the end of the study 58% of patients had a reduced content of 8-isoprostane, which indicates a decrease in oxidative stress. "

The researchers also looked at levels of the enzyme in the tissues GSTpi, which helps rid the body of carcinogens. They found that in 37% of patients experienced higher levels of this protective enzyme.

It seems ezhevikoobraznaya raspberry has many useful properties, although the study did not provide a long-term study of the long-term results in order to establish the fact, whether the cancer has developed in patients who participated in the study or not.
