Treatment of infectious diseases in children sometimes requires the use of antibiotics. But, acting on pathogenic bacteria, they disrupt the ratio of beneficial and harmful microflora. As a result, dysbiosis develops. It interferes with the normal assimilation of food and the production of its own protective substances. The result of these changes is a decrease in immunity, frequent colds, poor weight gain, vitamin deficiency and other problems. That is why the child's body needs to be restored after antibiotics.
It is necessary
- - children's vitamins, lecithin;
- - "Bifidumbacterin" in dry or liquid form, "Lactobacterin", "Floradophilus", "Bifiform", food supplement "Fervital", "Inulin", BioGaya ".
If possible, treat dysbiosis in a child under the supervision of a doctor, since for the normal restoration of microflora, it is necessary to consistently use drugs, first of bacteriophages that suppress the pathogenic flora, and only then containing beneficial bacteria. Moreover, their dosage depends on the degree of dysbiosis, and it can be determined only after laboratory tests.
The most common preparations for restoring intestinal microflora are Bifidumbacterin in dry or liquid form, Lactobacterin, Floradophilus, Bifiform, food supplement Fervital, Inulin, BioGaya. They can be purchased without a prescription, however, with independent use, it is worth considering the simultaneous need for other methods of treating dysbiosis.
To restore the child's body after antibiotics, pay great attention to nutrition, then the introduction of beneficial bifidobacteria and lactobacilli into the intestines will be much more successful. For 3 months, exclude from the diet foods containing dyes, flavors, stabilizers, substitutes for taste and smell - these are all sweets, chewing gum, chips, croutons, yoghurts, packaged juices and carbonated drinks. In addition, do not give fresh yeast bread, sugar, pasta.
Make a menu of vegetable salads and stews, boiled beef, fish, liver, crackers, cereals (except semolina), fruits. Be sure to give cottage cheese, cornflakes for breakfast, and kefir or beefelife at night. Use honey instead of sugar for sweetening, provided you are not allergic to it. To maintain its own bacteria, give your baby natural apple juice or cranberry juice.
Against the background of the treatment of dysbiosis with bacterial preparations, carry out vitamin therapy for 1, 5-2 months. It must necessarily include vitamins C, B1, B2, B6, D - in a prophylactic dose and A, E - in a therapeutic (double) dose, as well as calcium and selenium.
To improve the liver's work to neutralize toxic and chemical substances, as well as the normal formation of red blood cells, give your child lecithin. In addition to the strengthening effect, it also contributes to the assimilation of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K. For the method of administration and dosage appropriate for age, see the instructions for use.
Treatment of dysbiosis in children takes a long time, and the result depends on the regularity, and most importantly, the correct approach. That is why it is better to restore the intestinal microflora as prescribed by a doctor. This is especially important for young toddlers. For their rapidly growing and developing body, self-medication can be dangerous to health.
