Hepatinė encefalopatija ir probiotikai

Hepatic encephalopathy and probiotics

The intake of probiotics leads to a change in the composition of the intestinal microflora. And such normalization of the microbiota can prevent the development of encephalopathy, as a complication of cirrhosis of the liver. Deterioration of the functions of the central nervous system, right up to the development of encephalopathy, is a frequent complication in cirrhosis. In 45% of cases, liver cirrhosis leads to hepatic encephalopathy, since the liver is not able to cope with the neutralization of toxic substances, which leads to a gradual brain poisoning. Indian scientists led by Siddharth Srivastava conducted an experiment in which a group of patients received probiotics for 3 months, and the second group received a placebo. After 3 months, the content of beneficial microorganisms in the intestine increased significantly, which led to a decrease in ammonium and other toxic substances in the blood. During the study, encephalopathy developed in 14 patients in the placebo group, and only in 7 of the probiotic group. This result further enhances the interest of scientists in studying the various mechanisms of the influence of microflora on human health.
