What you need to know about gastritis
severity of abdominal pain, nausea, heartburn ... These symptoms are aware, perhaps, one.Today gastritis is a disease of the century.In countries with developed statistics chronic gastritis is fixed in 80-90% of patients with atrophic gastritis occurs in 5% of cases - in individuals younger than 30 years, in 30% of cases - in individuals aged 31 to 50 years and 50-70%cases - for persons older than 50 years (1).

In connection with a variety of forms of the term "gastritis" is a collective disease and is used to indicate different origin of inflammatory changes in the inner wall of the stomach (the mucosa), leading to organ dysfunction.

Many of us still consider the disease frivolous, seeing it as the inevitable retribution for love "eat", writing off its malaise to stress and unhealthy lifestyle.But it is a dangerous delusion - gastritis in any case can not be ignored.If not begin treatment, the disease can become chronic and eventually transformed in peptic ulcer disease, and in some cases lead to

the development of gastric cancer.

main cause of chronic gastritis is the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (Helicobacter pylori).The discovery of the infection made a real revolution in the understanding of the causes of gastritis, and scientists who have made it, were awarded the Nobel Prize.

Helicobacter adapt and survive in the human body without any problems.Atrium Helicobacter pylori is the oral cavity.Suffice it to observe the hygiene rules in order not to be infected.Once in the stomach, the bacteria begin to produce toxins that damage the protective layer of the stomach lining.Under the influence of food enzymes and hydrochloric acid, the deposition of the erosion and ulcer.

The first time you feel unwell, instead of going to the doctor, we are driving to work we run to the nearest pharmacy and ask the pharmacist to give us some preparation "heartburn."But in the end it turns out that it only relieves symptoms, but does not eliminate the causes of the disease.Kislotosnizhayuschie drugs are powerless before the bacterium.Moreover, their use in gastritis associated with Helicobacter pylori, often leads to the spread of infection in the stomach and the progression of disease, until the precancerous changes.It is very important time to see a gastroenterologist, he must appoint a full course of examination to confirm the diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Current approaches to the treatment of gastritis, gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer include the following objectives: the elimination of Helicobacter pylori infection and healing of the stomach lining.

One of the drugs acting on Helikobaktor pylori is De Nol ® (2).It helps to eliminate the main causes of the disease and works in two directions: forms a protective film over the damaged gastric mucosa and inhibits Helicobacter pylori (2).

drug prescribed to patients suffering from (2):

  1. gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer.
  2. chronic gastritis and gastroduodenitis.
  3. irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea predominance.
  4. functional dyspepsia (2).

have Helicobacter pylori is not formed to the drug stability.De not Nol® relates to antibiotic (2), so that it is deprived of their inherent side-effects, such as negative effect on the microflora of the organism.The product also has a high solubility, which allows it to penetrate deep into the mucous layer and eliminate to "lurking" where bacteria (3).De-Nol used in H. pylori infection in combination with multiple agents, and increases the efficiency of therapy of H. pylori, and therefore in most cases it is possible to get rid of infection (3).

In addition to that the drug contributes to the destruction of Helicobacter pylori infection, De Nol ® enhances the protection of the gastric mucosa from the damaging effect of gastric juice and facilitates its recovery, thanks to the formation of the protective film at the site of damage - erosions and ulcers.These "patches" reliably cover the damaged areas of the mucosa, which contributes to their rapid healing and scarring (2, 3).

In contrast, anti-ulcer drugs with antisecretory activity, De Nol ® belongs to a class of non-prescription drugs and is approved for use in children older than 4 years (2).

Dosage and administration (2):

  • Adults and children over 12 years: 1 tablet 4 times a day, or 2 tablets 2 times a day.
  • Children from 8 to 12 years: 1 tablet twice a day.
  • Children from 4 to 8 years will help you choose the correct dosage doctor.
