Uses of Acilet Tablet

Benefits of Acilet Tablet

In Treatment of Indigestion

Indigestion is a feeling of discomfort or a burning sensation in the upper part of your stomach. It also causes stomach pain and a feeling of fullness. Acilet 1000mg Tablet treats indigestion and thus gives relief from its symptoms by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach. Acilet 1000mg Tablet also gives relief from excess gas by breaking trapped gas and allows its easy passage. Take Acilet 1000mg Tablet as prescribed by the doctor. Think about what foods trigger indigestion and try to avoid them; eat smaller, more frequent meals; try to lose weight if you are overweight, and try to find ways to relax. Avoid eating within 3-4 hours of going to bed.

In Treatment of Alkalinizing agent

Alkalinizing agents are medicines used to manage disorders associated with low pH. Acilet 1000mg Tablet is used to treat metabolic acidosis (a condition where there is too much acid in the body) due to kidney failure. It helps restore the lost electrolyte balance and raises the pH of the urine and blood. This prevents complications that may arise due to metabolic acidosis such as osteoporosis, kidney damage, weakening of muscles, fatigue etc. It is given as an injection by a doctor or nurse and should not be self-administered. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get the most benefit.

In Treatment of Metabolic acidosis

Metabolic acidosis occurs when the body accumulates too much acid or loses too much base, leading to a disrupted pH level. Acilet 1000mg Tablet acts as a buffer that helps neutralize excess acid and restore a healthier pH level. This prevents further complications related to the acidosis, such as organ dysfunction and electrolyte imbalances. This way it supports the proper functioning of various bodily systems and promotes overall health.
