Treatment of liver
With the breath, food, or simply through the skin, the body receives a variety of substances - both vital and very dangerous. Since the person is unable to protect himself from the penetration of such substances, nature has provided for it is not such a case of an organ called the liver. It is the liver responsible for neutralizing all harmful substances that enter the human body The quality of life of each person directly depends on the condition of this body, since in addition to neutralizing toxins, the liver participates in almost all metabolic processes (protein, carbohydrate, fat, mineral and vitamin).
All liver diseases leading to a decrease in her functions are considered very dangerous. The most common are liver diseases such as: liver tumors, hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and liver abscess. Although the liver is considered the most hardy body, thanks to its regenerative features, but at the same time it is a very vulnerable organ. Often, a person does not know about the existence of any liver disease until until the sensation of soreness in the right hypochondrium appears
Factors contributing to liver damage :
- Uncontrolled use of medications
- Lack of vitamins in the body, as well as their overabundance (especially dangerous vitamin A)
- The use of food preservatives
- Drinking alcoholic beverages
- Improperly balanced nutrition (excess of sweet and fatty foods)
- Viral and infectious diseases
- Environmental pollution
Principles of liver treatment
A distinctive feature of all liver diseases is that even if they end in complete recovery, a disturbance of the affected metabolic processes remains for a fairly long time, which also requires additional treatment. That is why the treatment of liver diseases should be comprehensive and based on the results of the survey and identified changes.
Treatment for acute diseases is primarily aimed at eliminating intoxication (using droppers with blood substitutes, glucose, etc.). Simultaneously, drugs are prescribed that normalize the secretory function of the liver and provide an outflow of bile
For the treatment of the liver, three groups of drugs are used:
- Chololitholitic agents
- cholagogue means
препараты (такие как урсофальк и хенофальк) при помощи содержащихся в них кислот – растворяют желчные камни в желчном пузыре и желчевыводящих путях. Chololitholitic preparations (such as ursofalk and henofalk) with the acids contained in them - dissolve gallstones in the gallbladder and bile ducts.
восстанавливают нормальное функционирование клеток печени, благодаря чему повышается ее устойчивость к всевозможным токсическим воздействиям и улучшаются обменные процессы. Hepatoprotectors restore the normal functioning of liver cells, thereby increasing its resistance to all kinds of toxic effects and improving metabolic processes. Hepatoprotectors are divided into synthetic drugs (zixorin), homeopathic preparations (halsten) and preparations of plant and animal origin (hepatosan, silimar, carpel, hofitol, heptral and essencial forte).
(холагол, аллохол и холензим) предназначены для повышения выделения желчи и ее беспрепятственному продвижению по желчевыводящим путям. Cholagogue preparations (cholago, allochol and cholenzym) are intended to increase the secretion of bile and its unimpeded progress along the bile ducts.
