Ursosan is used in various diseases of the biliary tract, liver and other digestive organs, accompanied by stagnation of bile with a tendency to the formation of cholesterol stones. Furthermore, ursosan possesses hepatoprotective properties, i.e. has a positive effect on the liver function.
How does ursosan
Ursosan is hepatoprotector, it protects liver cells from toxic effects. He also has a choleretic effect, reduces viscosity and stagnation of bile in the biliary tract and gall bladder, prevents the formation of cholesterol stones.
Have already formed cholesterol stones, he is able to fully or partially dissolve. Furthermore, it has certain immunomodulatory properties, increasing the activity of leukocytes.
Ursosan in diseases of the biliary tract
Violation of the motor activity of bile ducts (biliary dyskinesia), while metabolic disturbances lead to the fact that in the biliary tract bile stagnates, it becomes viscous, with a large amount of cholesterol produced in her cholesterol stones. It can cause inflammation of the biliary tract and bouts of renal colic

Under such conditions ursosan administered in the form of long courses of treatment - a few months or years, depending on the diagnosis and the patient's condition. Ursosan take on capsule two to five times a day while eating, drinking plenty of fluids.
In some cases, the patient is impossible to carry out the surgical removal of stones from the gallbladder, for example, if he has a serious illness of the internal organs, which are contraindicated for such an operation. If ursosan assigned to dissolve cholesterol stones, the entire daily dose given once daily at bedtime

. The drug is given to the complete disappearance of the stones, and then another three months for the prevention of new stone formation.
You can not assign ursosan in acute inflammatory processes in the area of the gallbladder and biliary tract, and in violation of their permeability.
Ursosan liver diseases
In acute and chronic liver diseases is of great importance to the timely removal of bile: any stagnant processes increase the toxic effects on the liver. Ursosan in this case able to prevent one side of bile stasis, and the other - to protect liver cells from the toxic effects of any factors.
In diseases of the liver ursosan appoint tablet three to four times a day with meals. Duration of treatment is determined by your doctor.
In cirrhosis of the liver (liver cells replace the cells of the connective tissue with a gradual reduction of its function) and some other diseases ursosan appoint one or two tablets three times a day for a period of from six months to several years.
Ursosan other diseases of the digestive system
Sometimes gastritis and gastroduodenitis (inflammation of the stomach and duodenum) going throw the contents of the duodenum with the bile into the stomach. This supports the inflammatory process in the stomach. This condition is called biliary reflux gastritis. Most often, these diseases are associated with the violation of motor activity of bile ducts (dyskinesia). Over time, the process involved and the pancreas
Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
, Ducts that pass close to the bile ducts and is often squeezed.
The same reverse casting of stomach contents into the esophagus is possible. Sour contents irritate the esophageal wall, causing its inflammation - reflux esophagitis.
When biliary reflux gastritis and reflux esophagitis ursosan appoint one capsule a day, at night for two weeks to six months, but in some cases it is administered for a longer period of time.

Ursosan can not be used with the following diseases and conditions:
- If gallstones contain large amounts of calcium (dissolve them will be difficult);
- if the gallbladder is not able to be reduced;
- if the patient's body has a bilious-gastrointestinal fistula (channels that connect these bodies);
- in acute inflammatory processes in the area of the gallbladder and bile ducts (cholangitis and acute cholecystitis);
- with cirrhosis of liver decompensation and failure of the liver (ie, when the liver can not cope with their functions);
- with severe kidney disease in violation of their functions;
- in violation of patency of biliary tract;
- during breast
