Dysbacteriosis in adults : the war within us
Our intestines - a permanent battlefield between helpful and harmful microorganisms.When the last win, goiter begins.Dysbacteriosis in adults as in children, occurs often.

When dysbacteriosis in adults and in children the ratio of good and bad bacteria in the gut is changing in favor of the latter, violates his work and weakens the immune system.Who are these beneficial bacteria and how they protect us?

Friends within us

microorganisms begin to colonize the human skin and mucous membranes directly after birth, at the very moment when a child takes the mother's breast for the first time.

With colostrum he gets lactobacilli, bifidobacteria and E. coli, which are attached to the intestinal wall, multiply rapidly and start to work: provide the correct process of digestion and intestinal motility, neutralize decomposition products that do not need to get from the gut into the bloodstream, helping to produce enzymes andvitamins.

enemies there

Similarly, in the gut and penetrate antagonists beneficial

bacteria - opportunistic microorganisms.

Why conditionally?Because they all our life present in normal intestinal flora, nasal, vaginal and other mucous in small quantities and not harm us.

But when their number increases, they begin to behave like aggressive pathogens.They are introduced in the microbial layer of the intestinal wall and competing with beneficial microorganisms, violate normal operation.

much more dangerous these pathogenic enterobacteria that cause acute intestinal infection (Shigella, Salmonella, and others.).They pose a threat to health and even life and require immediate treatment with antibiotics.

Dysbacteriosis in adults: the normal intestinal flora indicators

Normal flora:

  • bifidobacteria - 95-99%;
  • lactic acid bacteria (lactobacilli, lactic acid bacteria) - 5%;
  • E. coli with normal enzymatic activity (Escherichia) - 1%;
  • E. coli with a reduced enzymatic activity - a kind of ballast, which is not helpful and not harmful, - 1%.

conditionally pathogenic flora:

  • lactosonegative Enterobacteriaceae (Klebsiella, Proteus, hafnium, seratsii et al.);
  • hemolytic E. coli;
  • cocci (Staphylococcus eneterokokk);
  • clostridia.

is important to understand - goiter in adults is subject to correction.And so as not to run the problem, it is necessary at the first signs of discomfort in the gut to see a doctor.
