I AM SUFFERING FROM celiac disease! Please help? What precaution should I take what medication are required?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM - Endocrinology, DNB Endocrinology, MNAMS, Speciality Certificate (Endo. & Diab.) (MRCP, UK), Fellow of American College of Endocrinology (FACE)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, I really hope that the diagnosis of Celiac's disease has really been confirmed by both endoscopy biopsy of duodenum and antoantibody testing. In Celiac's one has to avoid glutein containing food stuff as you are allergic to it. Glutein containing food stuff include wheat, ragi, jowar bajra. Problem is a lot of food items are derived from wheat which you have to avoid (rotis, aata/flour, maida or white flour, breads, cakes, pasta, maggi, cereals processed food like Kellogs flakes), biscuits, cookies, toffees (some of them). You have to basically restrict yourself to a rice based diet, unlimited fruits and vegetables, milk and milk products, meats which you will have no problems with. When ever you are buying processed food or packaged food, please always read the fine print of the ingredients or contents and avoid stuff which contain which contain wheat based products. Best is to buy food stuff which contains labels saying" GLUTEN FREE"

I'm 36 years old male, I'm suffering from obesity and indigestion ,I always feel like my stomach is full. please tell me what should I do to cure this problem.

General Physician,

You need to have diet plan based on your BMI & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 KMs and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

One pound equals 3,500 calories. If you cut 500 a day from your diet, you'll lose a pound a week. People who lose weight slowly, about 1 to 2 pounds per week, are more successful at keeping the weight off. You'll also burn additional calories if you increase your physical activity. You weight-loss plan should do all of the following: •Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. •Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. •Contain foods low in saturated fats, avoid trans fats, and limit cholesterol and salt (sodium). •Avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Some tips to help you lose weight: •Keep a food diary. Writing down everything you eat is critical! Noting how you feel when you eat will help you identify emotional triggers that may cause you to overeat. Emotional eaters tend to overeat. •Eat when you're truly hungry rather than when you're tired, anxious or stressed. •Eat slowly. If you eat too fast, you eat more than you need to satisfy your hunger. Your brain needs time to catch up with your stomach. •Plan your meals ahead of time so you make healthy choices. When dining out, check the menu online and decide what you will order before you sit down. Ask for dressings on the side. Opt for foods that are baked, broiled or steamed versus fried or swimming in creamy sauces. Avoid chips and bread baskets—they add unnecessary calories. •Stay hydrated. People often mistake thirst for hunger. •Eat breakfast. If you skip this meal, you'll be starving by lunchtime. You'll have more difficulty making healthy choices throughout the day. •Find resources to help you keep track of your food choices and nutritional values, and that can offer additional support when you need it.

Sometimes stopping medication can lead to relapse. I strongly suggest you to start using more fiber in diet. Currently add isabgol 2tsf at bedtime with luke warm milk. And use local ointments before passing stool so that you do not have to hold back because of the pain. Use sitz bath twice daily. Add salads and fruits like apple to your daily diet. You may consult, if required.

What is meant by pylori.

MD - Pathology
General Physician,
By pylori I believe you want to ask about H. pylori. It is a bacteria which harbours in 50% of people. Usually without any symptoms. In less than 20% cases it results in ulcers, rarely it is a cause of cancer. If patient has some complaints and h. pylori is detected on endoscopy only then treatment is given . Antacids with anti biotics are needed to eliminate it.
