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.
Accordind to a recent study in Canada, the effect of intestinal bacterial overgrowth on brush border hydrolases and brush border glycoproteins was studied in nonoperated control rats, control rats with surgically introduced jejunal selfemptying blind loops, and rats with surgically introduced jejunal self-filling blind loops. Data were analyzed from blind loop segments, segments above and below the blind loops, and three corresponding segments in the nonoperated controls. Rats with selffilling blind loops had significantly greater fat excretion than controls and exhibited significantly lower conjugated:free bile salt ratios in all three segments. Maltase, sucrase, and lactase activities were significantly reduced in homogenates and isolated brush borders from the self-filling blind loop, but alkaline phosphatase was not affected.
