Gastritis in children, symptoms of gastritis
number of diseases gastritis grows, it is clinically diagnosed in 120-140 children per thousand under the age of 6-8 years.It does not take into account the forms that occur without pain.
Is it possible that a young child can chronic inflammatory process?Unfortunately yes.What are the reasons for the development of chronic inflammation in the lining of the stomach?There are many, and each contributes to the overall development of the disease.We can not exclude a genetic predisposition, especially family life.But one of the main causes of gastritis in children - dietary error.
Food consumption containing a large amount of stabilizers, dyes, fragrances, etc., gives the green light of the entire "active chemistry", which gradually destroys the protective layer of the stomach by increasing aggressive ability of the gastric juice (which in turn increases the lesion area of gastrictissue).The second most important cause of chronic gastritis in children are functional changes in the nervous system, affecting the correct functioning of all departments.It was she who commands all stages of the processing of food in the stomach cavity.
When functional inferiority of individual links of the central nervous system (CNS) in children revealed complaints of nausea, vomiting, unstable stool, abdominal pain, bitterness in the mouth, poor appetite, and others. At the same time we must not forget that these symptomsdo not always correspond to the diagnosis of "chronic gastritis".Scientific evidence suggests that more than 40% of children with gastrointestinal diseases are those or other deviations of the autonomic nervous system.Constant companion these children are loss of appetite, weakness, imbalance of nature.
To some extent, the modern family - is explosive, environmentally and socio-biologically unstable system that is faltering at low loads.In this case (with gastritis) is not in the material well-being of parents and their ability to organize a child's life, to raise his psycho-emotional stability, to learn to be a person, for which taking care of your health is a natural thing.
In recent years the number of children hospitalized in the gastroenterology department is constantly increasing due to the increased well-being of families (stomach can not digest the Mendeleev periodic system).And gastritis soon develops into a gastro, followed by the possible development of pancreatitis and peptic ulcer disease.The effectiveness of the treatment of any disease depends on identifying and removing the causes.
Currently, pediatricians all over the world with particular attention studying the role of a small bacterium (Helicobacter pyloric), which multiplies in certain conditions of the internal environment when it enters the stomach, by stimulating the development of chronic inflammation.According to scientists, the degree of influence on the development of microbe duodenal ulcer disease in adults is 90%.At the conclusion of individual physicians, peptic ulcer and chronic gastritis - an infectious disease.
Many parents prefer to self instead of settling lifestyle, diet, and psycho-emotional status in the house.The course of treatment is usually prescribed mother and grandmother, zakarmlivaya baby pills.It was then that the kid can go far, far away in gastritis and getting lost, finding it more and allergies.Naturally, the only early treatment can help avoid serious complications.But the treatment undertaken in the ultra-modern hospitals, not always enough to stop the development of atrophy of the gastric mucosa.
process of treatment and recovery are sometimes stretched for many years, and the volume of surveys and an assortment of drugs as chronic gastritis activity increased.Therefore, if you notice something, the first step is to go to the pediatrician to be examined (in the US do not expect, is not the case), the second stage - to a gastroenterologist.Today there are a lot of interesting techniques to identify at an early stage of all diseases of the stomach.
relatively quickly (within 1-3 hours), you can make a diagnosis, to identify other, while hidden, but no less dangerous diseases.In any case, particularly if there is no possibility of a quick survey, it should be remembered that the gastro-intestinal diseases, the most important thing - it's the rhythm and quality of life, dietary pet food, rejection of uncontrolled medication, close cooperation effort pediatrician and gastroenterologist.
