Calcium gluconate for dermatitis: in what doses to use the drug?
Welcome to our website! The theme of our article again about allergies. Consider the use of calcium gluconate as one of the components in the treatment of dermatitis.
Calcium is used in medicine in the form of salts of gluconic acid (which is our calcium gluconate), as well as in the form of chloride.
Calcium gluconate is available in the following forms: powder, tablets for oral administration and in solution for injection.
Both drugs are similar in action, but the gluconate has such a pronounced irritant effect.
First, the lack of this element leads to the fact that Allergy symptoms become more pronounced. For more information about the mechanism of action in our body.
The element involved in the balance between cells and the environment, and directly linked to the vascular permeability, so the more, the stronger the walls of the latter.
Thus, the allergens in smaller amounts enter the bloodstream and are not distributed throughout the body. In turn, our body does not show pronounced immune responses.
To the greatest extent it has a positive effect in the treatment of allergies in children, for example, in atopic dermatitis.
This is due to the fact that consumption in a growing organism is more (bone growth), so the concentration of trace element in the blood decreases rapidly.
In addition, in children there is often a lack of vitamin D, and this adversely affects the absorption of calcium.
Accordingly, the calcium restores the balance of trace elements, thereby contributes to more rapid recovery.
What processes are involved?
Calcium is a metal, which in large quantities is part of bones, teeth, participates in fluid and electrolyte balance of the body. But his role for the body ends:
