How to help a lazy stomach
The symptoms of having a lazy stomach are a feeling of heaviness in the stomach after eating, pain in the pancreas, nausea in the morning or after eating, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea, belching and vomiting.
The causes of dyspepsia can be congenital, i.e. genetically inherited and acquired. The acquired group includes disorders in the process of eating (irregular meals, snacks on the go, overeating, excessive consumption of one type of food), disturbances in the central nervous system, stress, organic diseases (gastritis, complications of a stomach ulcer, pancreatic disease, gallstone disease etc.), metabolic disorders resulting from thyroid disease or diabetes, and other conditions (obesity, pregnancy, menopause).
To get rid of dyspepsia, it is necessary to eliminate the cause of its occurrence and compliance with the diet prescribed by the doctor.In order not to worsen the condition of the stomach, try to eat more often, but in small portions. With this diet, food is easier to digest and does not linger in the stomach for a long time. Avoid foods that irritate the gastric mucosa - these are spices, sauces, smoked meats, pickles, lemonades, coffee, etc. Try to smoke less and do not watch TV while eating.
To help a lazy stomach, the doctor prescribes medication. In the mild stage of the disease, these are antacids and antisecretory agents - omeprazole, maalox, and similar drugs. With a feeling of heaviness in the stomach, you can use drugs that help to normalize its motor function, for example, Motilium. If you have a Helicobacter pylori infection, your doctor may recommend antibacterial therapy.
Dyspepsia caused by poor nutrition is called alimentary. It can be fermenting (manifested by flatulence, gas and rumbling), putrid (manifested by symptoms of intoxication, weakness and nausea) and fatty (manifested by abundant bright feces, diarrhea). Nutritional dyspepsia is affected by daily starvation and a special diet aimed at unloading the gastrointestinal tract.
Fermentation dyspepsia occurs when eating a large amount of fruit, legumes, cabbage, sugar, lemonade, flour products and honey. To reduce the symptoms of a lazy stomach, you need to reduce carbohydrates and add protein foods to your diet.
Putrid dyspepsia occurs when excessive use of protein foods, especially - fatty meat, which is digested for a very long time. In this case, you should adjust the diet in favor of plant products.
Fat dyspepsia is caused by excessive fat intake. For treatment, the doctor prescribes a diet that restricts the intake of fats, especially refractory (lamb and porcine).
In some cases, alimentary dyspepsia occurs due to a violation of the secretory function of the stomach, exocrine pancreatic function, bile secretion, production of intestinal juice. In this case, you can help a lazy stomach by taking polyenzymes - "Festala", "Mezim", etc.
