Dear lybrate user, for gastric problems. Take green leafy vegetables which are easy to digest. Avoid fast food, junk food, oily food, spicy food, rice, potato, etc which are heavy to digest. Drink more water 3 litres per day. Walk for an hour 5 days in a week. Regular yogasan /pranayama/deep breathing exercise can sure help you. Pavanmuktasana, bhujangasana can help you. Take enough sleep 6 to 8 hours. Manage the stress and anger. Take enough rest. For vitamin d sunlight is the natural and best source. Take morning light sunlight it can help you. For more details consult me.

I am suffering with acidity, stomach burning
The problem growing after lunch and it continues for 5 to 6 hours.
The problem arises after you take your food, hence its likely to be related to your stomach lining, pancreas or gall bladder. Endodcopy and sonography helps in such cases.

Hello- in indian conditions drink around two to four glasses of water (roughly amounting to 800 ml) after waking up - if you work in an airconditioned environment and follow a sedentary lifestyle, do not drink more than 2 to 2.5 litres of water per day - for moderate workers, for instance salespersons, it is important to drink around three litres of water - during summers, keep yourself hydrated by drinking water at regular intervals. If you don't suffer from diabetes or blood pressure, having electrolyte or glucose water is also advisable. -water before/after meals is not advisable. Always drink water with meals so that the food can easily be churned inside the stomach and get digested easily. Note: excess of water intake opposite to the above mentioned conditions definitely create indigestion.

What Causes Bladder Control Problems in Women?

Causes of bladder control problems in women

Urinary incontinence is the term used to describe bladder control problems that affect several people. Many think it only occurs among older, menopausal women but it actually isn't uncommon amid young and active women.

Inability to control the bladder accompanied by pain can be symptomatic of various disorders ranging from a minor infection to cancer. Fortunately, bladder cancer is rare, and bladder pain is usually not serious.

The varied causes of urinary incontinence in women are as follows:

  • Urinary tract infection: this is the most common cause of urinary incontinence and it affects women more than men due to anatomical factors. It can also happen at any age.
  • Medicinal side effect: the inability to control one's bladder may be a result of the administration of certain medicinal substances such as alpha-blockers, antidepressants, sleeping pills and various narcotics.
  • Changes in the reproductive system: pregnancy and fluctuations in hormone levels can cause bladder irritation, which leads to urinary incontinence.
  • Impacted stool: when stool gets tightly packed in the lower end of the digestive system and rectum, bladder control is affected. Chronic constipation and constraint strain on the lower intestines leads to the weakening of bladder muscles and hampers the bladder control.
  • Surgical side effects: temporary loss of control of the bladder is often a result of prior surgery and radiation therapy in the pelvic region.
  • Nerve damage and neurological disorders: strokes and spinal cord injuries have a heavy impact on bladder control and amount to urinary incontinence. Diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis also lead to the same.
  • Health complications: disorders such as diabetes and obesity directly affect the bladder and the ability to exercise control over it.
  • Disability and impaired mobility: for women who are physically impaired and suffer from problems of arthritis, urinary incontinence is a major problem as they are unable to reach the toilet easily.
  • Bladder cancer: even though it is extremely rare, bladder cancer affects a number of women every year and is treated through surgery and chemotherapy.

Definition:   Presence of stones in the gallbladder is referred to as cholelithiasis.               

PredisposingFactors:

  • Genetics , Gender (more in women)
  • Body weight (Obesity), or rapid loss in weight , Fasting
  • Decreased motility (movement) of the gallbladder
  • Diet
  • Drugs : Cholesterol / Lipid lowering drugs , Estrogen
  • Diseases: Diabetes, blood disorder (Hemolytic anemia etc.)

Composition of Gall Bladder Stone:

Cholesterol Stone: Found in western world, causes accounted to diet rich in cholesterol.

Pigmented stone: generally found in diseases related to blood disorder

Mixed stone: Contains Calcium, magnesium, sodium phosphate ( most common type found in Asian population (India).

Symptoms :

  • (70–85%) are asymptomatic or "Silent Gall Stone"
  • Pain in right upper and central part of abdomen (may radiate to inter-scapular region) mostly after half an hour of food (seen more symptomatic after a fatty diet.)
  • post meal fullness, belching, upper abdominal discomfort
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • Clay colored stools or dark urine

Investigations required:

  • Blood - Liver Function test , Complete Blood Count,
  • Imaging -Ultrasound Of abdomen and if required MRI (MRCP) abdomen.
  • Complications of Gall Stone
  • Infection of gall bladder {Empyema(pus) / Mucocele of Gall bladder}
  • Perforation of gall bladder
  • Stone slipped in Common Bile Duct resulting in obstruction in the passage of bile leading to Jaundice
  • Stone from gall bladder slipped to common bile duct and entering into pancreatic duct through common channel of opening in Duodenum (small bowel) leading to Pancreatitis.

Indications for Surgery:

  • Symptomatic Gall stone with typical history of pain as mentioned above and proven with Imaging (ultrasound)
  • Asymptomatic or Silent gall stone (Found Incidentally during Ultrasound abdomen) - "DOES NOT REQUIRE SURGERY".

Asymptomatic or Silent gall stone requiring surgery in special circumstances are:

  • Pregnant lady diagnosed with gall stone during first trimester (incidental finding)
  • Any blood disorder and patient is going for any abdominal surgery for any reason.
  • Diabetes mellitus - as chances of infection are high on by ground of diabetes
  • Gall bladder polyp (a soft tissue growth in lumen of gall bladder) size > 1 cm or single stone measuring > 3 cms, as risk of Gall Bladder cancer increase by 10 fold in these cases.

Treatment: Surgery - Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (Key Hole Surgery) is Gold standard worldwide.

  • Safe surgery, there are no side effects of removing of gall bladder as one has to weigh the complication arising from a "symptomatic" gall stone disease.
  • Can be done as a day care surgery
  • Post surgery patients are advised to refrain from fatty meal for a week so as to acclimatize the body to a diluted bile. Normal activity is allowed from day 1 of post surgery.
