Dysbacteriosis is a very frequent diagnosis, it is put by 93% of children. This disease indicates a violation of the normal balance in the intestinal microflora, that is, some microorganisms begin to multiply more actively, which leads to the creation of an atypical environment. As you know, there are a lot of microorganisms in the intestine and all of them can be conditionally divided into normal and harmful ones. Dysbacteriosis indicates a decrease in the number of beneficial microorganisms and an increase in harmful microorganisms, which leads to the creation of a pathogenic microflora that disrupts the normal functioning of the intestine.
The opinion about a dysbacteriosis is ambiguous. Some experts argue that dysbacteriosis in the baby is an absolutely normal condition associated with breastfeeding, and therefore it does not require any treatment. Other doctors prescribe a number of medical procedures, trying to restore balance in the intestines of the baby. Let’s try to understand this question.
