Parents need to behave in a completely different way if the results of the analysis showed the presence of starch in the feces of an older child. Sometimes this may indicate a pathological condition such as amilorrhea, which has to be diagnosed if the feces contain more starch grains than the permissible norm.
To find out how much starch is in the feces and whether it is worth worrying about, you must first submit the appropriate samples for analysis. To study the composition of feces, the laboratory assistant will conduct a special analysis of the coprogram. The basis for such a study may be the appearance of a doctor's suspicion of a pathology of the digestive system.
When starting to study the composition of feces, experts pay attention to the following parameters:
Based on the results obtained, as well as the type of starch, the specialist determines the type of amilorrhea, which can be:
The function of producing amylase in sufficient quantities in the human body is performed by the pancreas. And when parents try to change a child's diet without prior notice to the pediatrician, this can lead to certain disorders in young children.

Parents should see a doctor right away.
Considering that all organs are formed in an adult, the digestive system must process starch completely in the absence of health problems. This process begins at the moment when food enters the mouth, because the digestive enzyme amylase is found in saliva in every person.
After that, the starch begins to move along the gastrointestinal tract, enters the small intestine, is digested, where it is converted into glucose as a result of the action of the secretion of the pancreas. The small intestine is the place in the body where this substance is completely absorbed.
The analysis can show the presence of starch in feces in adults only in certain cases:

This master class will be of interest to everyone who has furniture that is good in quality, functional, but completely inappropriate for the interior of the room.
It is not always possible to remove the old varnish and re-coat the surface with a new one. Especially when it comes to repainting in a lighter color. And yet, it happens that furniture does not have its own wood structure, that is, plastic, chipboard, metal.
We use a similar method when we paint refrigerators, imitating the structure and color of kitchen fronts.
For work we need the following materials:
We had to repaint the chest of drawers to match the new furniture in the room. Furniture color "Bleached oak." The photo below is the armrest of the sofa.
The challenge was not only to match the color, but also to make the structure similar.
We start by removing all the handles, sanding the surface and carefully priming.
After the primer has dried, we begin to cover it with acrylic paint.
We use paint in several shades, similar in tone and color, not completely mixed with each other. Immediately begin to apply paint with a roller lengthwise, so that the edges of the roller form stripes-grooves.
Next, you need to use a brush with different pile lengths to enhance this effect.
