Blind loop syndrome is a disease condition, where normal bacterias or microbes of small intestine start growing in such an uncontrolled manner that it goes in abundance and causes significan dearrangements in our physiological syatem, and thus also called as bacterial overgrowth syndrome.
It is mainly characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, loss of appetitie and unintentional weight loss. These are common symptoms associated with many diseases but in case problem persists for a longer time then you must see a doctor.
The fundamental process causing all diarrheal diseases is incomplete absorption of water from intestinal luminal contents. Water itself is not actively transported across the intestinal mucosa but moves across secondary to osmotic forces generated by the transport of solutes, such as electrolytes and nutrients. Normally, absorption and secretion take place simultaneously, but absorption is quantitatively greater. Either a decrease in absorption or an increase in secretion leads to additional water within the lumen and diarrhea. Excess stool water then causes decreased stool consistency. Blind loop syndrome is associated with abdominal surgery also, and there researches and prevention techniques are under evaluation for this particular case.
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth was found in 34.5% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth was more likely to be present in diarrhea dominant irritable bowel patients compared to those with constipation dominant irritable bowel patients. Although the prevalence of small intestinal overgrowth was similar in men and women the frequency of small bowel overgrowth in women was higher compared to that in men. prevalence in argentina is very low as similar to rest part of world. This can be categorized under rare disease category.
