Causes of microflora disorders
With changes in the composition of the intestinal microflora – the growth of conditionally pathogenic and the reduction of “beneficial” – we can talk about dysbacteriosis. There are several reasons for its development.
Here are the most common ones.
Frequent and long-term use of medicines, including antibiotics, violates the integrity and balance of the intestinal flora. The fact is that drugs designed to destroy pathogenic bacteria, and affect the number of bacteria useful.
The body is not always able to independently fill the deficiency of beneficial bacteria, resulting in dysbacteriosis.
Dysbacteriosis in infants usually occurs on the background of mixed or artificial feeding. With mother’s milk, the baby receives not only immunity, but also the opportunity to strengthen the microflora. Breastfeeding contributes to the colonization of the intestines of the child necessary for the formation of healthy microflora of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.
In older children, unbalanced nutrition can lead to disruption of microflora: excessive consumption of carbohydrates, animal fats and proteins. Sweets, bakery products, meat – an excess of these products in the diet usually badly affects the health of the baby’s gastrointestinal tract and leads to an imbalance of beneficial bacteria.
One of the common causes of microflora disruption is stress. In children and adolescents, it can be caused by the beginning or end of the school year, increased workload at school, as well as pressure from classmates or teachers.
Constant stress affects the overall health of the child, including the function of the gastrointestinal tract.
Indicators of the rate of intestinal microflora
The main symptoms of intestinal microflora in newborns and infants can be called colic, flatulence, rumbling and spasms. All of the above is often accompanied by anxiety and frequent crying.
The kid hardly gains weight, loses appetite and does not sleep well. If you notice one or more of the following characteristics of a child’s stool, measures should be taken urgently to treat dysbacteriosis: abundant liquid or pasty stools, with lumps or mucous inclusions, unusual color, putrid or sour smell.
In older children, the disturbance of microflora can usually be identified by the following signs: constipation, diarrhea, colic, belching, pain in the upper abdomen, signs of gastritis, nausea or vomiting, heartburn, loss of appetite.
The most important thing in the treatment of dysbiosis is a harmonious and balanced diet. In the case of infants, the best “medicine” for dysbacteriosis is mother’s milk. If breastfeeding is not possible, special therapeutic mixtures should be used.
Older children should make a special diet, coordinated with your doctor. Exclude from the diet of raw vegetables, fruits, beef, pork, sweets, dairy products, flour, juices and soda. The main treatment is necessary to discuss with the pediatrician: he will send for tests and choose a vector of therapy.
In addition, to restore the microflora of the child’s body, it is important to “colonize” the intestines with beneficial bacteria. The synbiotic of the new generation of Maksilak® Baby (from 4 months) in the form of sachets with microgranules will help restore the intestinal microflora (including after taking antibiotics). It consists of 9 cultures of probiotic bacteria and a prebiotic – fructooligosaccharides.
The special protection of the Micro MURE ® granules reliably protects the beneficial bacteria from the aggressive effects of the external and internal environment, so for children up to 2 years old it is enough to use only 1 sachet per day. Maksilak ® Baby does not need to be stored in the refrigerator, besides, it does not contain lactose and casein, and it can be recommended for children with allergies to these components.
“Maksilak ® Baby” is an excellent protection against the consequences of violation of the intestinal microflora of your child.
