Dysbiosis and "bacterial overgrowth syndrome" (concept, value of the normal microflora, diagnosis, principles of treatment and correction)
Normal microflora of the human intestine plays an important role in the normal functioning of the body. Disturbances of the quantitative and qualitative bacterial composition of the intestines may occur both in the form of intestinal dysbiosis and in the form of bacterial overgrowth syndrome. They are always secondary, as a result of the main pathology. At the same time in the content of the small intestine total number of microorganisms is increasing, the number of typical esherichia, bifidum and lactobacilli is decreasing, the number of atypical and hemolytic escherichias, proteus, enterococci, and others is increasing. Correction of these conditions should be multifactorial, with complex treatment of the underlying disease and constant control of the intestinal microflora composition.
