All liver diseases, and this is cirrhosis, cholecystitis, chronic hepatitis and others, require not only medical intervention, but strict adherence to a special diet. This is the famous diet number number five.
In case of problems with the liver, it is logical to reduce the workload for it to implement effective medical measures. However, the patient's normal, balanced and nutritious diet should be observed. Dietary restrictions help normalize liver function and improve bile secretion.
Dietary table number 5 with a sick liver
Dietary table No. 5 contains products with the necessary amount of carbohydrates and proteins, but refractory fats, cholesterol and nitrogen extractives are severely restricted here, should only be cooked or steamed, and sometimes stewed vegetables are also present. Alcoholic beverages of any origin you at this table will not see.
Instead of with liver disease it is recommended to use dietary borscht and soups on vegetable or cereal broths. It is recommended to use milk soups. From meat dishes only low-fat varieties of fish, poultry and meat are allowed. Consumption of vegetables, fruits and berries is welcome. With liver hepatosis, any bread is eaten, provided that it is yesterday's, low-fat dairy products and cereals. With liver dysfunction, foods with high amounts of fiber, lipotropic ingredients, liquid and pectins are placed. Cold dishes can not be used, warm or hot ones are allowed.
Fresh bread, any muffins, broths on meat, fish and mushrooms should be excluded from the diet. The same applies to smoked, salted, marinated and fatty foods. Absolutely not welcome coffee, chocolate, cocoa, confectionery with cream. From vegetables doctors are not allowed legumes, radish, sorrel, garlic, green onions. With cirrhosis of the liver, alcohol is a poison in any doses.
Proper nutrition with liver disease
You need small meals up to six times a day.
However, this article can not be the basis for compiling a dietary diet, because the diet should be prescribed only by a specialist, taking into account the individual characteristics of the patient.
This applies, for example, to fats. At present, it is believed that properly balanced intake of fats, well tolerated by the body, significantly improves the patient's condition. A mixture of animal and vegetable fats exerts a strengthened lipotropic action and thus the formulated diet is more effective than a diet that includes only animals or only vegetable fats.
If there is a risk of fatty degeneration of the liver, you should enrich your menu with lipotropic substances. Lipotropic substances are actually drugs for the treatment of diseases of the liver and biliary tract, hepatoprotectors.
Lipotropic effect is rendered by beef, chicken egg, low-fat fish, marine invertebrates, low-fat cottage cheese and soy flour.
