Popova therapist names reasons for exacerbation of chronic diseases in spring

“Usually in the spring and autumn period, several basic chronic diseases worsen. First, these are diseases of the gastrointestinal tract: chronic gastritis, enteritis, colitis, peptic ulcer and duodenal ulcer. This happens for various reasons: weakened immune system, lack of vitamins, changes in acidity, and stress, “- explained deputy general director for medical activity, head doctor of “INVITRO-Stavropolye” Elena Popova.

According to her, spring is a transitional period, including for the body.

“This is due to the nature of the diet: in winter and early spring there are fewer fruits and vegetables in the diet, so in spring we may lack vitamins and elements necessary for the natural regeneration of the mucous membrane of the stomach. Some people start strict diets to lose weight for the summer, which further reduces the activity of the immune system, there is chronic stress,” she added.

These factors lead to increased production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach with subsequent damaging effects on its mucosa, Popova said.

In addition, weakened immune system, hormonal malfunctions, active flowering plants lead to exacerbations of allergies, recalled the therapist.

She explained that in the spring the air becomes warmer, begins blooming herbs, which means that it dramatically increases the content of dust, pollen, seeds, fluff and other dangerous for asthmatics substances.

“Not surprisingly, spring is a time of exacerbation of bronchial asthma. Pulmonologists recommend patients with bronchial asthma in the spring time, especially careful to take the prescribed remedies, and when symptoms of worsening breathing do not delay a visit to the attending physician,” – said the expert.

For the prevention of exacerbations of gastrointestinal diseases should follow a gentle diet, eat right, regularly take medications prescribed by a doctor, try to avoid products that damage mucosa.

Previously, the most common types of allergies were named among Russians.
