Know About Digestion Problems!!

Know About Digestion Problems!!

The human digestive system is a very complicated and sizeable component of the body. It starts right at the beginning of the mouth, ending at the rectum. Some of the major responsibilities of the digestive system include absorption of essential nutrients and elimination of wastes.

Not only do digestive problems have embarrassing and unwanted symptoms, serious, chronic diseases can be caused if the minor problems are not treated.

Some digestive problems are listed below:

  1. GERD: This is a burning sensation that results from acids in the stomach being squirted into the oesophagus. A burning sensation is felt, right from the chest to the end of the throat. Frequent heartburns can lead to GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), symptoms of which include dry cough, sore throat, chest discomfort and difficulty in swallowing.
  2. Bloating: This is caused due to the presence of excess gas in the colon, small intestines or the stomach.
  3. Dyspepsia: This is an uncomfortable feeling or pain which occurs in the upper abdominal regions, mostly a result of excess food intake. It is commonly referred to as indigestion. Dyspepsia can be discomforting and if prolonged, medical assistance should be opted for.
  4. Chronic Constipation: Persistent constipation (chronic) is a sign that there is a problem with the elimination of wastes. This usually happens when the colon is unable to move or pass stools. Other major causes of chronic constipation can be changes in your usual diet, various eating disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and excessive consumption of dairy products among others.
  5. Food Intolerance: This occurs when the digestive system is unable to tolerate certain food items. This condition is different from food allergies as it only affects the digestive system. Some of the common symptoms include diarrhoea, headache, gas and vomiting.

Possible Serious Conditions-

A gastroenterologist is a type of doctor that specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases involving the digestive system. If you continue to experience digestion problems, it’s time to make an appointment.

More serious signs could mean an emergency medical problem. Those signs include:

These symptoms could be an indication of an infection, gallstones, hepatitis, internal bleeding, or cancer.

Medications-

You may be able to overcome digestion problems with treatment and lifestyle changes. Certain diseases of the digestive system might be long-term, but medications can help alleviate symptoms.

Identifying specific digestion problems and talking with a doctor can go a long way in terms of helping your doctor give you a proper diagnosis. Remember, you don’t have to put up with constant digestive issues.

I am 27 yrs, 6 feet, 51 kgs, For the long time I have been suffering from mucus (आंव) coming on my poop. It is just like dirty gell falls from nose. In a day day I go only for 1 time for poop. Previously I didn't pay attention any more but now it comes out 2 to 3 times in a week. Simultaneously, I am also facing greasy (chiknahat) on my poop & this problem is with me for last 5 to 6 years. But mucus on poop has just recently started for last 2 years. It used to be come with poop 2 to 3 times in a month but now in a week I can see 2 to 3 times. Should I be worried about it. Recently I got ultrasound done but report is normal. Believe me, except home food I don't take any thing. Then why this problem is with me. Should I again go for ultrasound or any other test to know the exact problem. Does masturbation also create some nonsense problem like this becoz I disclose in front of you that at teen age I was addict of masturbation but for last 6 years I skipped & controlled my feeling fully when I came to know its bad effect. But mucus on poop & greasy problem is trying me & make me realise the this is just becoz of masturbation. Should I go for any other test to know the root cause of both the above problem.

I did my first test for pregnancy using test kit. To reconfirm I have done it twice and it seems I have conceived now. With this I am facing few following symptoms.

If there r two lines on the test, then only it is positive. During pregnancy, progesterone hormone is secreted by the pregnancy, which causes, water retention in the body giving you the bloated feeling. All this is temporary and will go in few weeks time without any treatment. But you need to start taking folic acid tablets and do the sonography asap.

Gas Pain in Children

Fellowship in Neonatology, MRCPCH(UK), Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS

Gas Pain in Children

Gas or flatulence is a condition where the microorganisms present in the intestines break down the food and release excessive gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, which is usually let out from the anus. It can lead to pain in the stomach and an uneasy feeling in the body.

Causes:

  1. When foods that are not digested properly are broken down
  2. Lactose intolerance
  3. Swallowing air
  4. Certain foods not being absorbed properly in the digestive system
  5. When a child does other activities, while eating, then it can cause gas to accumulate air in the intestines leading to gas
  6. The sweeteners present in chewing gums can get trapped in the intestines and ferment into gas
  7. Vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli can cause gas
  8. Soft drinks that cause phosphoric acid can also lead to gas
  9. Some children are sensitive to fat and fiber, and consuming these nutrients can lead to gas

The symptoms of gas pain in children are cramps in the stomach region along with diarrhea. It can also lead to irregular eating, being fussy about food and pulling up the legs to the belly.

Treatments and preventive measures:

  1. Consuming food containing probiotics such as yoghurt and soy can help in treating gas
  2. Eliminating vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower from your child's diet
  3. Decreasing the amount of milk in the diet
  4. Limiting consumption of chewing gums as they contain artificial sweeteners , which cause gas
  5. A hot drink such as tea made from herbs like peppermint can help in easing the symptoms of gas
  6. Encouraging your child to exercise can help in preventing gas
  7. Getting your child to drink water in proper amounts
  8. Consuming a healthy diet of vegetables and fruits

Sir I am Suffering from ulcerative colitis since September 2015 and I recovered it in December 2015 but now problem started blood in stool, abdominal pain, emergency in toilet and weakness. Now my Dr. Told me to we have last option and I have take steroid now. So what can I do now.

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS, FICS
General Surgeon, Delhi
It you still pass blood with stool, that means your problem of ulcerative colitis has not subsided. It needs to tackled with medication that includes steroids also. So it is for the gastroenterologist to decide as to what should be the appropriate treatment for you. Moreover steroids is not the last option rather it is one of the options. I would say surgery is the last option. So don't worry follow your doctor and all the best. God bless.
