Bowel disorders are fairly common. However, few of the people who know all kinds of intestinal disorders. The most common disorder of the intestines by simple townsfolk mean just diarrhea. But what doctors refer to intestinal disorders? And how to treat them?
After intestinal disorders in different cases require different treatment. For example, intestinal disorders in pregnancy is treated completely as diarrhea in children. Of course, the appearance of the first signs of gastrointestinal disorders sick person should seek immediate medical attention. However, sometimes it is due to some - any reason at once can not be done, and has to provide first aid to yourself. This is what will be discussed below.
Types and causes of intestinal disorders
The group of intestinal disorders, doctors are those symptoms that in some way reveal a violation of the normal functioning of the colon. The patient man such disorders manifest as diarrhea, constipation, alternating constipation with diarrhea, intestinal cramps, bloating, and rumbling. And the pain can be very different intensities - from mild colic to rezey the strongest stomach.
Intestinal disorders may be caused by various disorders of motor function - peristalsis fast or, conversely, paresis - the deterioration of intestinal peristalsis. Generally, not all of the affected intestine, but only a portion thereof. Around the affected area of the mucous membrane swells, reddens. The process of absorption of nutrients is much worse, the contents of the intestine begins to ferment and rot.
Bowel disorders in pregnant women
Diarrhea during pregnancy is extremely unpleasant phenomenon. And I must say that it occurs often enough. And quite often the expectant mother is to blame in cases of intestinal disorders. Almost all the expectant mother during pregnancy significantly increased appetite, and as a result she just simply does not pay much attention to what it is. As a result, the body gets quite a lot of fat or smoked food that the expectant mother can not recycle.
And about the spoiled food at all to say no, as well as about the fast - food. Those foods that before pregnancy a woman's body assimilate without - any problems in its current condition can lead to severe disorder of the intestine.
A pregnant woman may complain of sharp pain in the stomach or intestines, a feeling of bloating and diarrhea. Also to the above symptoms are often joined by nausea, vomiting, and even exhausting. Of course, such a state can not affect negatively on the general condition of the pregnant woman, so intestinal disorder should try to avoid all possible ways.
In addition, the intestinal disorder during pregnancy is often caused by penetration into the body of the future mother of an intestinal infection. At the same time women had all the same symptoms: bloating, pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. On the child's intestinal infection has no negative impact, but in the course of pregnancy in general, this can affect the woman's condition. Cramps and vomiting can lead to spontaneous abortion, placental abruption, and even premature birth.
In order to cope with a bout of diarrhea during pregnancy, a woman should as soon as possible to seek help from a doctor. After successfully cope with intestinal disorders can be only if it is known, what is the reason they were called.
For example, if the diarrhea is caused by poor quality, or simply spoiled food, you can do "little blood" and to drink herbal teas, rice broth. Typically, these kinds of intestinal disorders are very fast and within a few days of the expectant mother will feel wonderful.
But in the event that an intestinal disorder caused by penetration into the body of a pregnant woman pathogens intestinal infections, treatment will need much more serious. Most often, in order to cope with an intestinal infection, the doctor is forced to resort to the appointment of the pregnant woman a course of antibacterial drugs that are effective in killing pathogens.
Of course, without exception, expectant mothers, heard that they will be treated with antibiotics. However, remember that in this situation is true folk wisdom "of two evils choose the lesser should be." Modern pharmacology offers expectant mothers are antibiotics, which do not have on the child any harm. But an intestinal infection can lead to the depletion of the body, like a pregnant woman, and child.
Intestinal disorders after antibiotics
And if we were talking about antibiotics, we can not talk about the fact that their use is also often leads to intestinal disorders. This occurs for the following reasons. As everyone knows, it lives in the intestines of a huge number of beneficial bacteria, without which it quite simply will not be able to perform its function.
In addition to work gastro - intestinal tract, namely from the normal microflora depends normal functioning of the immune system. As a result, the person becomes more susceptible to various diseases, including even the common cold and acute respiratory diseases.
In the event that the human body gets pathogenic microflora, the doctor decides on a course of treatment with antibacterial drugs. Antibiotics are also getting into the human body, destroy all the bacteria in a row, without considering whether they are pathogenic or friendly.
As a result, significantly and dramatically disrupt the normal operation of the intestine. And not only suffers while digestion. For example, in the intestine in intestinal contents several times increases yeast. Rapidly growing intestinal yeast begin to penetrate beyond the bowel through his wall, enter the bloodstream and are carried to all organs of the body.
Yeasts are alien to the body, so the immune system immediately begins to fight with them. Fungi, of course, begin to resist the cells of the immune system, while stressing such materials, which are extremely negative effect on the operation of all internal organs.
In addition, the violation of the natural balance of intestinal microflora leads to allergic reactions, which are before the body of the sick person always react adequately. Yeast, penetrating through the walls of the intestinal mucosa, damage it, so the intestine becomes very permeable. Through its walls, in addition to yeast, the blood enter the body undigested food proteins. The human immune system perceives them as foreign, so trying to disarm and withdraw from the body. As a result, there are various food allergies. Especially often faced with the pregnant women and small children.
Allergic same reaction resulting disruption of the immune system, in turn further aggravate the immune system, whereby it becomes more sensitive and vulnerable. It turns out a real vicious circle - people ill more often, gets quite serious chronic diseases, including autoimmune such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and others.
Of course, antibiotics are not intended to harm the patient. Rather on the contrary - a huge number of lives were saved precisely because of antibiotics. But in any case unacceptable to use antibiotics uncontrollably. They should appoint a doctor.
Unfortunately, this rule a few stick. Often, even when common cold person goes to a pharmacy and buy an antibacterial drug, and which tries to cure the common cold. Although this method of treatment will bring nothing but harm. Antibiotics are designed to destroy the bacteria. Against viruses as they are totally powerless. Their reception at the ARD or creep would only worsen the situation, because antibiotics disrupt the immune system, without bringing any harm viruses.
Restoring the body after antibiotic
However, there are situations in which dispense with antibiotics is impossible, for example acute inflammations, injuries, intestinal infection. As a result, the person, in memory of antibiotics remains lowered immunity and intestinal disorders. However, there are ways to quickly restore lost functions of the intestine and immune system.
More often than not the result of the use of drugs is becoming bowel disorder after antibiotics: there is diarrhea, nausea, those products that are used to eating a relaxed, no longer absorbed. It is therefore first necessary to restore the required amount of lactic acid bacteria. For this very helpful for ten days in the morning on an empty stomach, drink a glass of kefir. Diarrhea and flatulence cease to trouble in a few days.
Kefir must be prepared as follows: Pour into a quart jar 0, 5 liters of yogurt. Crush a clove of garlic and half a small onion. Fill the jar up to the top with boiling water and leave for 12 hours.
Also, do not forget about other foods that contain lactose, bifidobacteria and atsidobakterii, the benefit of the sale of such products in abundance. Their regular use helps to restore the normal microflora is much faster. Just do not forget a mandatory check the expiration date of a product. Tragically, in the stores, you can often find expired products, which can lead to food poisoning.
On the shelf life of milk products to pay attention also for another reason. Whatever we had read labels on packages, in fact, milk - acid bacteria contains only those products which have a small shelf life. In the same case, if the product is able to store 30 days of any live bacteria and can not speak.
Also, do not forget also that there are special medicines, it is intended to restore the microflora and intestinal disorders resolve after antibiotics. However, appropriate in each case, the drug should choose the doctor, based on the status of women.
To summarize, I would like to remind once again - indigestion in any case inadmissible to ignore, whatever the reasons they were not called. In addition to all the other complications that may result from an intestinal disorder in pregnant women, in the absence of adequate and timely treatment is very high risk of developing chronic diarrhea. Chronic diarrhea, in turn, in virtually all cases leads to the development of exhaustion and dehydration, both mother and unborn child. In addition, the very high risk of developing iron-deficiency anemia, which will inevitably lead to fetal hypoxia.
Therefore, in no case should not risk the health of the crumbs!
