INTESTINAL CARBOHYDRATE DYSPEPSIA
Intestinal carbohydrate dyspepsia is a condition which results from the presence of excessive gas in the colon, due to the fermentation of carbohydrates, which have escaped digestion in the small intestine.
PATHOLOGY AMD ETIOLOGY;
When food is properly chewed, starch is digested by the ptyalin of the saliva, and amylopsin of pancreatic juice. It is completely digested in the upper part of the small intestine. When the rate of its passage through the small intestine is excessive, the starch in some cells reaches the caecum and the ileum, unaltered. Amylopsin here tries to penetrate the cells, and the sugar thus formed is attacked by bacteria, which are present in large number and undergo fermentation before there is time for adequate absorption of sugar into blood. The symptoms of intestinal carbohydrate dyspepsia are caused by the production of carbon dioxide and acetic acid.
In some cases, there is food poisoning, or intestinal infection, which causes enteritis. In other cases, the repressed emotional factor may be responsible for the intestinal disturbance.
