The ways of improving of diet management in children with Shigellosis infected with H. pylori were determined. The study involved 29 children with H. pylori infection aged from 1 to 10, who were hospitalized in the Regional Children’s Infectious Diseases Hospital (Kharkiv) and had a diagnosis of Shigellosis sonnei of moderate severity. The children were divided into two groups depending on the feeding mode. The first group was represented by 13 children, who were undergone standard treatment. The second group included 16 children who had two days prolonged gradual increase in the volume of food at each feeding, and decreased number of feedings per day. Children of the second group received aluminum phosphate from the first day and after discharge they were advised to keep on the regime of feeding «more frequently, but in small portions». A longer duration of the symptoms of bowel dysfunction and vomiting, pain in periumbilical area, bloating, changes in fecal examination in the form of the presence of undigested food in children of the first group were revealed. Patients of the second group regained their weight in much shorter period. Rational diet therapy makes it possible to prevent recrudescence of shi­gellosis in children at early stages of recovery. Studies have shown that early detection of H. pylori infection in children with shigellosis as well as timely correction of feeding have a positive effect on recovery of functional activity of digestive processes, faster normalization of clinical and laboratory parameters of patients, contribute to regression of clinical symptoms of the underlying disease.
