What does iodophilic flora in the feces of a child say?
What can iodophilic flora in a feces mean in a child? What kind of disease testifies? Do I need to use medicines for treatment? You can try to figure it out.
What is this flora?
Iodophilic flora in feces appears with a decrease in the number of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria and their replacement by various pathogenic or conditionally pathogenic microorganisms:
- yeast cells;
- spindle-shaped bacilli;
- bacteria with clostridia.
Clostridia can be introduced into normal cells of the environment or located in the intercellular space. In a "healthy" analysis of feces such inclusions should not be.
Is it necessary to destroy the iodophilic flora?
Iodophilic flora in the feces of a child does not necessarily indicate any serious disease. Assume its presence in the intestines, with the fact that the baby has a normal temperature, he eats well, is happy, quietly asleep, almost impossible. Without giving tests, it is impossible to guess about problems with intestinal flora.
Single diarrhea or excessive formation of gases can be the result of excess fiber in the diet. If there is no reason to worry, but an analysis of the feces is made, the iodophilic flora in which it is found, then it can be considered that for a given baby this is the norm.
But we must remember that the flora is conditionally pathogenic, and under favorable conditions (in case of a violation of the food regime, for example), it can manifest itself.
When there is a conditionally pathogenic flora in the intestine?
Iodophilic flora in the feces of a child can be detected if the diet changes, and the baby begins to get more carbohydrates. At the same time, the movement of food through the intestines slows down, and fermentation processes may occur. Excess fruit in the diet in some cases causes putrefactive dyspepsia.
Treatment for the introduction of new products is not required. Gradually the intestines will populate the necessary bacteria, and pathogenic microorganisms will recede.
Children who are naturally weakened, have low immunity or were under the influence of chemotherapy, themselves can not cope with the disease. They are prescribed probiotics.
- the process of digestion in the stomach or in the upper parts of the digestive tract has been disturbed;
- accelerated movement of food through the intestines;
- insufficiently actively absorbed nutrients in the small intestine;
- in the presence of pathology of the pancreas.
The concentration of such inclusions can be detected within the appendix in its ileal region.
Identification of iodophilic flora
Having visually examined the excrement of a child, it is impossible to identify a conditionally pathogenic flora. Iodophilic flora is found in the coprogram, a special analysis of feces.
In order to obtain a reliable result of the analysis, to which the doctor will rely with confidence in the diagnosis, the feces must be fresh. In yesterday's feces, iodophilic flora can not be detected due to the property of starch hydrolyzed.
By the way, the flora got its name - iodophilic - precisely because of the reaction to iodine. When dyeing a laboratory sample with iodine, clostridia stain partially, cocci, pathogenic bacteria and yeast fungi acquire a dark blue and black color.
What is a coprogram, and how is it handled?
Since the iodophilic flora is determined by a coprogram, we should dwell in more detail on this analysis.
This is an objective study on which you can talk about the work of the digestive system. The child's chair is examined visually and by chemical composition, it determines the presence of bacteria and microorganisms.
During the coprogram, the feces are visually described for density, structural uniformity and color, are examined under a microscope, and are exposed to special substances.
Microscopic research tells about the work of the digestive organs and the secretion of bile. It is informative for the detection of dysbiosis and cancer. Only the coprogram can detect latent blood in the stool. Fermented or putrefactive dyspepsia, which is caused by iodophilic flora, is also identified with the help of this study.
With iodifilnoy flora should be fought. The presence of pathogenic microorganisms in the children's intestines can lead to the development of chronic colitis and disruption of the gastrointestinal tract as a whole.
