The research work was aimed at studying the effectiveness of diet therapy with inclusion of instant goat’s milk for duodenal ulcer disease (DUD) with Candida infection of ulcer. The observation included 30 children who had DUD with Candida infection of ulcer. Of them 16 children received instant goat’s whole milk «Amaltea» as part of diet No.1 (basic group). The reference group comprised 14 children who received only diet No.1. All patients received conventional drug treatment. The results of the observation showed that inclusion of instant goat’s milk into the diet was associated with shortening of the exacerbation period (14.0 ± 2.0 and 20.0 ± 2.5 days in the basic group and in the reference group, respectively), and earlier normalization of the endoscopic picture.
