Dear Lybrate user, sounds like this is a case of anal fissure, you have to take fibre rich diet, do sitz bath two times a day and also apply nifecaine gel in the perianal area. Syp cremaffin 10 ml at bed time will help you to soften your stools.

I got operated for G-III haemorrhoids on 27-03-17. They gave antibiotics, vitamin tablets etc. To use and advised sits bath. After the course got over I continued sits bath at least thrice a day. I continued the medicines everyday even though I intake liquid items like fresh juices, tender coconut, mixed curd rice without any spicy foods till 14-05-2017. On 19-05-2017 I am supposed travelled after so long time and distance for the first time after surgery by bus, when I am supposed to stand and sit 4 hrs (go) and 5 hrs (return) respectively. On 20-05-17, when I went to bathroom, I saw complete raw blood in it. Again I took sits bath after tat. It repeated like this only once on the same day evening with raw blood in the stool. Then I went to nearby govt. Hospital and got the same tablets given after my surgery and continued it till june 2017 end. From july I also stopped having sits bath. In july middle I found that I am starting to get maroon coloured stool with some foul smell. It continued for 15 days. Then I went online and came to know its may be because of internal bleeding. Also I am feeling burning stomach with spicy foods. So I started using DIMOL-40 mg for acidity and burning thrice a day after food as a local doctor referred. The thing is once I started using the dimol tab the stool started to become usual. And not even once I noticed the colour change after medication. Please tell what is the issue for me? Why I got raw blood bleeding exactly after 2 months of operation even I continued my medicine course recommended thrice a day with sits bath (only for a day)? Also why I got change in stool colour before using this (dimol 40 mg) medicine everyday? What is the problem with my health? What these symptoms indicate? Anything to get panic? Please kindly help it out.

The maroon stools are because of intestinal bleeding intestinal bleeding occurs commonly due to pain killers that may have been given to you for piles. This may have caused macroscopic ulceration and leaking of blood. U started antacid dimol 40 mg which heals ulcer and bleeding stopped and colour became normal. It is however advisable not to take it for granted - get CBC test iron level vitamin B12, PT/INR to rule out any other cause like low platelets and blood lacking clotting factors. Also meet a gastroenterologist for UGI endoscopy to rule out stomach or intestinal ulcer.

I am a registered dietitian and doctor who will help you in losing your weight. Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets availiable online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. Reply back for private consultation for a holistic dietary therapy which includes diet, simple workouts and few medications.

What Causes Acid Reflux? 8 Tips to Deal With it

What Causes Acid Reflux? 8 Tips to Deal With it

The LES valve in the stomach is designed in such a way that as soon as food passes through it, it closes. If however, LES remains partially or fully open, acid produced by the stomach can move up to the esophagus resulting in a burning sensation called acid reflux or heartburn. This condition is commonly known as the hital hernia.

Some of the common symptoms of acid reflux:
1. Consumption of large meals at one go.
2. Lying down immediately after having a meal.
3. Obesity or being overweight.
4. Consumption of snacks just before bedtime .
5. Consumption of certain food items such as chocolate, garlic, onion and citrus-related food.
6. Consumption of caffeine related products such as coffee, liquor and cigarettes.
7. Certain medicines such as aspirin is also known to be a trigger for acid reflux.
8. Pregnant women or patients with blood pressure are known to be suffering from acid reflux.

Tips to deal with acid reflux
There is a wide range of treatment options available for acid reflux. If you are suffering from occasional heartburn, there are some wonderful home remedies that can be tried. However, if the acid reflux recurs more than once in a week, it is best to consult a doctor. Home remedies to deal with acid reflux:
1. Sleeping on the left side is known to reduce acid reflux.
2. Reducing weight greatly helps in tackling acid burn. Patients with obesity are more vulnerable to acid burn.
3. It is best to avoid food that triggers acid burn.
4. Chewing gum greatly helps in countering acid burn. It helps in producing saliva which soothe the esophagus.
5. Intake of One spoon of baking soda every day proves to be extremely effective. Baking soda contains sodium bicarbonate which has a pH of more than 7 and can effectively neutralize the acid from stomach.
6. Intake of aloe vera, apple, banana or ginger is known to have very positive effects on acid burn.
7. Intake of 1 table-spoon of mustard can give instant relief from acid burn. Mustard’s alkaline properties can make the acid neutral in the system.
8. Regular intake (one after every meal) of almond helps to fight acid burn

Medication:
1. If you are buying over the counter, Histamine 2 blockers is a great medicine that instantly gives relief from an acid burn. Typically Doctors suggest this medicine with a higher dosage. This medicine can be consumed half an hour before the consumption of a meal. However, It is best to consult a doctor before consuming any medication.
2. Doctors often suggest medicine from the PPI family. It effectively blocks acid production in the esophagus for a longer duration. Some common medicine from this group includes Lansoprazole, Pantoprazole and Rabeprazole. Although, a doctor should be consulted.

8 Signs You Are Suffering From Celiac Disease!

8 Signs You Are Suffering From Celiac Disease!

Also called gluten-sensitive enteropathy and celiac sprue, celiac disease is an autoimmune digestive disorder, wherein the consumption of gluten-based foods leads to damage of the tissues that line the small intestine. This hinders the ability of your body to absorb the essential nutrients from the foods you eat.

Causes
Under normal conditions, the immune system of the body offers protection against external intruders. When individuals diagnosed with celiac disease consume gluten-based foods, gluten resistant antibodies are formed by the immune system. This causes them to attack the linings around the intestines, thus causing irritation in the digestive tract and harming the villi (hair-like structures on the covering of the small intestine which absorb nutrients from the food). This impairs the nutrient absorbing capacity of the individual, thus increasing chances of malnourishment.

Symptoms
Celiac disease has symptoms that vary from patient to patient. Some of the common symptoms include:

  1. A severe skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis.
  2. Digestive problems such as:
  3. Musculoskeletal problems such as bone and joint pain as well as muscle cramps
  4. Seizures
  5. Aphthous ulcers which are basically sores occurring in the mouth
  6. Tingling sensation in the legs which are caused by low calcium and nerve damage
  7. Growth issues in children since they cannot absorb the required amount of nutrients
  8. Irregular menstrual cycles

Other complications associated with celiac disease

  1. Miscarriage or Infertility
  2. Osteoporosis. This is a disease which weakens the bones and causes fractures. It is caused because of a deficiency of Vitamin D and calcium.
  3. Intestinal Cancer
  4. Other birth defects: Such as irregular spinal shape because of the deficiency of certain nutrients, especially folic acid. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gastroenterologist.

I am diagnosed with anal stenosis. I feel pain during bowel movement. Is there any surgery to cure it? Pls reply

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Mild stenosis can be managed conservatively with stool softeners or fiber supplements. Sphincterotomy may be quite adequate for a patient with a mild degree of narrowing. For more severe stenosis, a formal anoplasty should be performed to treat the loss of anal canal tissue.

Hello Lybrate User, Indigestion has many causes, including ulcers, GERD, stomach infections, Irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pancreatitis, thyroid disease, some medications, such as, Aspirin and other painkillers, steroid medications, certain antibiotics. It also happens due to eating habits like, Eating too much, eating too fast, eating high-fat foods, or eating during stressful situations, drinking too much alcohol, cigarette smoking, stress and fatigue are also the reasons behind indigestion. The best way to prevent indigestion is to avoid the foods and situations that seem to cause it. Here are few tips that will help you to get rid from indigestion - * Eat small meals so the stomach does not have to work as hard or as long. * Eat slowly. * Avoid foods that contain high amounts of acids, such as citrus fruits and tomatoes. * Reduce or avoid foods and beverages that contain caffeine. * If stress is a trigger for your indigestion, learn new methods for managing stress, such as relaxation. * If you smoke, consider quitting, or at least not smoking right before or after eating, as smoking can irritate the stomach lining. * Cut back on alcohol consumption, because alcohol can irritate the stomach lining.

its only due to hyperacidity or gas in common language. if you are constipated get it treated, take plenty of water for the indigestion problem and have regular walk/jogging or yoga for getting relief from the indigestion. take small frequent meals to avoid overloading the stomach. give a gap of atleast two hours before your dinner and bedtime. if this forum we can not prescribe medicines so if you can comeback in private consult i will be able to give a proper prescription or else you can consult local doctors for the same. good luck
