Exercis and diet control is only the way to reduce weight. Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach. Consult doctor.

DO’S In Gastritis: Chew your food properly. Eat SLOWLY. Many people find it so hard to do this. Taking meals'on the run' is a no-no, Chew and swallow food slowly. Be relaxed when you are eating, Sit upright or even stand up when you eat, Choose low fat foods rather than fatty foods, Finish eating at least two hours before you go to bed, Drink Water - lots of it! In most cases, a glass of water can relieve abdominal pains within ten minutes. Eat three small meals plus three snacks per day. Eat regularly to avoid periods of hunger. DO not: Try not to drink too much tea or coffee - caffeine raises acid levels. Avoid food sources like dairy products, cola beverages, fatty and fried foods, tomato products, and hot spices. Try abstaining from alcohol - it also raises acid levels. Smoking - nicotine also raises acid levels. Try not to use any form of aspirin (check those packaging inserts) Painkillers and arthritis medications (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAID's) which contain ibuprofen (again, check those packaging inserts) can cause ulcers and delay the healing process Antacids should be used sparingly or avoided - most antacids contain magnesium and can cause diarrhea. Stop eating any food that causes discomfort - even if it tastes nice! Foods that are well toleratedVegetables - Fresh, frozen, or canned. Vegetables, Okra, sweet potatoes, squash, yams, broccoli, brussel sprouts, bean sprouts, carrots and carrot juice, potatoes, cabbage juice. Fruit - Papaya, avocados, bananas, Blue grapes, almonds and almond milk and any other fresh, frozen, and canned fruits. High-fiber foods - Brown rice, barley, oats, are helpful as they can naturally coat and soothe your stomach lining. Eggs - 3-4 egg yolks per week maximum. Smooth peanut butter -Fresh, frozen, and canned fruits. Meat in small 6oz portions at most - lean beef, pork, lamb, veal, crispy bacon, lean ham, and skinless poultry. Fish - All fresh, frozen, or canned fish packed in water. Foods to be avoided or that are not well toleratedThe foods listed below are to be totally avoided or taken in little amounts if it doesn't aggravate the symptoms. Abrasive roughage - like bran, nuts, popcorn, and seeds. Red meat in large quantities - animal proteins are high in acids. High-fat breads and cereals such as croissants, biscuits and crackers, and granola-based cereals. Also breads with nuts or dried fruit, or seeds. Wild rice. Raw vegetables, corn, tomatoes and tomato based products. Berries, figs, lemons, grapefruit, oranges, pineapples, and tangerines. Orange, pineapple and grapefruit juice. Highly processed or seasoned meats or poultry or fish - such as corned beef, polonies, sausages, sardines and anchovies. All fried or fatty meat, poultry, or fish. Snacks - Highly seasoned salad dressings, cakes, cookies, pies, pastries, chips, doughnuts, fried potatoes and buttered popcorn, Coconut, chocolate. Also sweets and desserts containing nuts, coconut or fruit should be avoided.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Following is what I would recommend for relief - (a)'amla churna' (patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, preferably before lunch for next 1 month. (b)'bael churna' (patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, post lunch daily for next 1 month. (c) ripe banana with a cup of cold milk twice daily (d) stay well hydrated, drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. (e) streamline diet and lifestyle, exercise for at least 30 minutes daily, and stay relaxed. (f) restrict flesh foods, and focus more on leafy greens and fresh fruits. Try avoiding sweets, sour and hot/ spicy foods, drinks, greasy, oily, high calorie food stuff including fast foods etc all. (g) ensure that you reduce unnecessary mental stress and strain that often is the cause of acidity leading to ulcers. Hope this helps. Let know if your problems persist still. Take care and all the very best.

Dear lybrate user. At first you have to follow some basic things so that you get better results in a short period of time. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day 2) drink only 100-150 ml of water after meals 3) avoid, junk, oily, spicy, salty, fast and fermented foods. 4) avoid late night sleeping habits. A) take 10 ml of ginger juice and honey before meals. B) eat 5 gm of black cumin seeds after meals regularly. C) take 30 ml of aloe vera juice along with 30 ml of lukewarm water at night before sleep. Do all these things for fifteen days, it gives you good result, reply to me for further suggestions. Thanks.
