In recent years, experts saydisappointing trend - the frequency of chronic liver disease is increasing. Medications used to treat chronic liver diseases can be divided into two unequal groups.
The first - the preparations for the etiological treatment. So called drugs, the effect of which is aimed at eliminating the causes of the disease itself.
These medications include antiviral agents (interferons, nucleotide analogues, nucleosides), which are used for the treatment of chronic viral hepatitis B, C and D.
To deal with other common causesliver disease - alcohol and obesity - even special medication is not necessary. Enough, apparently, quite a bit: to give up alcohol and to lose weight, but it is very difficult and even impossible task for many people.
The second group is used in cases wherecan not be fully or partially to get rid of the etiological factor. It gepatoprotektory - drugs that increase liver resistance to various internal and external influences, as well as contributing to the restoration of the liver functions. The second group of drugs is much greater than the first and comprises means of varying composition and mechanisms of action. For right choice of hepatoprotective must take into account its effect on the recovery of a particular function.
One of the most important functions of the liver - detox. She is disturbed in varying degrees for all chronic liver diseases. How does this happen?
The liver collects blood from the gastrointestinaltract, so everything that we eat and drink, passes through it. It gets to the liver for detoxification, and all that is administered parenterally (bypassing the gastrointestinal tract: subcutaneously, intramuscularly, intravenously, etc.). The liver also detoxifies the toxins produced within the body. In order to ensure the detoxification function of the liver occurs in a large number of biochemical reactions that result in neutralized toxins can be safely excreted in the urine or bile.
In violation of the detoxifying function of the accumulationhepatic toxins leading to their entry into all organs and tissues. Signs of intoxication: weakness, lethargy, impaired attention - displays, which usually do not pay attention to the writing off asthenic syndrome and heavy workload at home and at work.
Often in this situation surrounding recommendman national method - "liver cleansing". Looking at the funds and products offered for such a procedure (sorbitol, magnesium, oil, lemon, etc.) is easy to see that there was no effect on these drugs do not have liver itself. Their action is directed solely at the secretion system: they increase the allocation of already formed bile and stimulate gallbladder emptying. But those toxins that are released through the bile, already cleared and uncleared toxins in the bile can not get there. In addition, the main endogenous toxin - ammonia, which is formed by decomposition of protein is output not through the bile and urine urea composition. Thus, "liver cleansing" does not help to normalize the function of the liver detoxification.
What to do in such cases? The first - to help the liver in detoxification. The second - to promote the restoration of its own detoxifying functions. Per day in an adult it decomposes to ammonia of about 100 g protein. There is no other toxin that would normally match the rate of formation and neutralization with ammonia. Ammonia is included in the ornithine cycle in the liver and ultimately formed urea which urine excreted. In chronic liver diseases regardless of their origin disturbed detoxification of ammonia, and the main manifestations of reducing the detoxifying function of the liver is just due to largely increase the concentration of ammonia. In this situation, the German original formulation shown Hepa-Merz, consisting of two amino acids ornithine and aspartate, which enhance the incorporation of ammonia in the ornithine cycle and reduce the symptoms of intoxication: weakness, reduced working capacity and attention disorders. As shown in clinical studies, the use of Hepa-Merz contributes to the normalization of the different functions of the liver and improves the quality of life of patients.
Hepa-Merz granules - a drug available without prescription.
There are contraindications. BEFORE USING consult your doctor.
