Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first. If any concern then feel free to contact we will then discuss and start you on medication if needed as every one has a different requirement of medicine.

Hello sir, I am male 30. I am getting stools with pain and light blood. I think its for high temperature, and also I am travelling from last week and outside food. Pls suggest me medicine to get rid off pain in anus and stomach.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
As you are traveling you may be consuming food prepared unhygienically, my suggestion is get your stools analysed in a standard lab, and see a surgeon or proctologist for proctoscopy, if on external exam doctor finds you have a fissure in ano he will not & should not perform proctoscopy instead he will treat you for fissure by local analgesic ointments and will suggest dietary changes, once fissure heals he will perform proctoscopy to rule out any other condition or he may do it in first visit if you don't have fissure. Self diagnosis & self imposed diets and unscientific treatment by one's own ideas is condemnable. Seek doctors help right away is my suggestion.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside 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.

Hello doctor I take thyronorm tablet 50 mg last 15 days after prescribed by a doctor .How time it will taken .l'm also suffering from acidity problem please Give me your suggestion.

Lybrate-user, most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism including lack of energy and weight increase will be in check once tsh levels are brought down to 3 to 4 mu/l. So you will have to check tsh levels after 6 weeks of treatment, if levels are down to as mentioned above, then present dose is adequate if levels are still high then there is a need for an increase in the dose of thyroxine. Plus you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.14 kgs / m2 (normal <23 kg / m2). This also adds to the problem. Hence, apart from regular treatment and diet control you will have to work to reduce weight (ideal body weight 67 kgs). Thanks.

Fatty Liver
It is also called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in adults.
It is an ongoing silent epidemic in India.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) refers to the presence of hepatic steatosis when there are no other causes for secondary hepatic fat accumulation such as heavy alcohol consumption.
NAFLD may progress to cirrhosis and is likely an important cause of cryptogenic cirrhosis
NAFLD is subdivided into nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
In NAFLD, hepatic steatosis is present without evidence of inflammation, whereas in NASH, hepatic steatosis is associated with hepatic inflammation that histologically is indistinguishable from alcoholic steatohepatitis
Risk factors for cirrhosis are, older age, diabetes, SGOT SGPT >2 times, BMI >28, higher visceral adiposity index, which takes into account waist circumference, BMI, triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein level, less coffee consumption, heavy alcohol intake
As little as two drinks per day in those who are overweight (and one drink per day in those who are obese) is associated in hepatic injury.
Liver cancer is associated with cirrhosis due to NAFLD.
Heart disease is the most common cause of death among patients with NAFLD.
Weight loss for patients who are overweight or obese is recommended.
Goal for many patients is to lose 0.5 to 1 kg/week (1 to 2 lb/week).
Vaccination for Hepatitis A and B, pneumococcal vaccination and standard immunizations (e.G, influenza, diphtheria, tetanus boosters) are recommended for the population in general.
Risk factors for cardiovascular disease should be managed.
Vitamin E at a dose of 400 IU/day may be suggested for those patients with advanced fibrosis on biopsy who do not have diabetes or coronary artery disease.
Avoid all alcohol consumption.
Heavy alcohol use is associated with disease progression among patients with NAFLD.
Thiazolidinediones can improve histologic parameters in patients with NASH, metformin does not.
UDCA has anti-inflammatory effects in the liver
Atorvastatin has protective effect on SGOT, SGPT levels in patients with NAFLD.
Pentoxifylline inhibits production of tumor necrosis factor-alpha and may be effective in NASH.
Omega-3 fatty acids may benefit NAFLD or NASH.
If serum ferritin >1.5 times the upper limit of normal: Progressive liver disease:
If SGOT:SGPT > twice the upper limit of normal, then refer

Worm infestation is the commonest cause of itching around the anus. Physical and nutritional hygiene is useful. Take lot of green vegetables & plenty of fluids. Avoid chillies & spices. Tablet zentel may be taken (single dose) once every 15 days for 2-3 months. Local application of non medicated sooting cream (eg nivea or ponds etc) may be applied 2-3 times a day.

पित्त की पथरी - Gallbladder Stone

Ayurveda, Delhi
पित्त की पथरी - Gallbladder Stone

पित्त की पथरी
डॉक्टर्स कहते हैं के अगर को पित्त की पथरी निकाल दे तो वह एक करोड़ रुपैये देंगे। ये दावा सिर्फ लोगो का आयुर्वेद से लोगो को भटकाने के लिए हैं। आज उनके लिए हैं ये पोस्ट, आशा करते हैं आपको फायदा होगा। और हम फिर से यही कहेंगे के जब भी आप ये प्रयोग करे तो किसी आयुर्वेद, होम्योपैथिक, या एलोपैथिक डॉक्टर के संरक्षण में करे।आयुर्वेद किसी का विरोध नहीं करता।
पित्त पथरी, पित्ताशय के अन्दर पित्त अवयवों के संघनन से बना हुआ रवाकृत जमाव होता है। इन पथरियों का निर्माण पित्ताशय के अन्दर होता है लेकिन ये केंद्र से दूर रहते हुए पित्त मार्ग के अन्य भागों में भी पहुंच सकती है जैसे पुटीय नलिका, सामान्य पित्त नलिका, अग्न्याशयीय नलिका या एम्प्युला ऑफ वेटर.
पित्ताशय में पथरी की उपस्थिति तीव्र कोलेसिसटाइटिस का कारण बन सकती है जो कि पित्ताशय में पित्त के अवरोधन के कारण होने वाली सूजन की अवस्था है और यह प्रायः आंत संबंधी सूक्ष्मजीवों द्वारा होने वाले द्वीतियक संक्रमण का कारण भी बनता है, मुख्यतः एस्चीरिचिया कोली और बैक्टिरॉयड्स वर्गों में. पित्त मार्ग के अन्य हिस्सों में पथरी की उपस्थिति के कारण पित्त नलिकाओं में अवरोध पैदा हो सकता है जोकि एसेन्डिंग कोलैनजाइटिस या पैन्क्रियेटाइटिस जैसी गंभीर अवस्थाओं तक पहुंच सकता है। इन दोनों में से कोई भी अवस्था प्राणों के लिए घातक हो सकती है और इसलिए इन्हें चिकित्सीय आपातस्थिति के रूप में देखा जाता है।

1. Gallbladder (पित्त की थेली) की पत्थरी निकालने का प्राकृतिक उपचार:- आज बहुत से लोग इस से परेशान हैं, और डॉक्टर भी इस के आगे फेल हैं।कृपया शेयर करते रहिये।पहले 5 दिन रोजाना 4 ग्लास एप्पल जूस (डिब्बे वाला नहीं) और 4 या 5 सेव खायें.छटे दिन डिनर नां लें.इस छटे दिन शाम 6 बजे एक चम्मच'सेधा नमक' (मैग्नेश्यिम सल्फेट) 1 ग्लास गर्म पानी के साथ लें.शाम 8 बजे फिर एक बार एक चम्मच' सेंधा नमक' (मैग्नेश्यिम सल्फेट) 1 ग्लास गर्म पानी के साथ लें.रात 10 बजे आधा कप जैतून (olive) या तिल (sesame) का तेल - आधा कप ताजा नीम्बू रस में अच्छे से मिला कर पीयें.सुबह स्टूल में आपको हरे रंग के पत्थर मिलेंगे.नोट: पालक, टमाटर, चुकंदर, भिंडी का सेवन न करें।
2. सेब का जूस और सेब का सिरका (apple and apple cider vinegar)- सेब में पित्त की पथरी को गलाने का गुण होता है, लेकिन इसे जूस के रूप में सेब के सिरके के साथ लेने पर यह ज्यादा असरकारी होता है। सेब में मौजूद मैलिक एसिड (mallic acid) पथरी को गलाने में मदद करता है तथा सेब का सिरका लिवर में कोलेस्ट्रॉल नहीं बनने देता, जो पथरी बनने के लिए जिम्मेदार होता है। यह घोल न केवल पथरी को गलाता है बल्कि दोबारा बनने से भी रोकता है और दर्द से भी राहत देता है।उपचार के लिए- एक गिलास सेब के जूस में, एक चम्मच सेब का सिरका मिलाएं। इस जूस को रोजाना दिन भर में दो बार पीएं।

3. नाशपाती का जूस (pear juice)- नाशपाती के आकार की पित्त की थैली को नाशपाती द्वारा ही साफ किया जाना संभव है। नाशपाती में मौजूद पैक्टिन (pectene) कोलेस्ट्रॉल (cholesterol) को बनने और जमने से रोकता है। यूं भी नाशपाती गुणों की खान है जिसके कई स्वास्थ्य लाभ हैं।उपचार- एक गिलास गरम पानी में, एक गिलास नाशपाती का जूस और दो चम्मच शहद (honey) मिलाकर पीएं। इस जूस को एक दिन में तीन बार पीना चाहिए।

4. चुकंदर, खीरा और गाजर का जूस (beetroot, cucumber and carrot juice)- जूस थेरेपी को पित्त की थैली के इलाज के लिए घरेलू उपचारों में सबसे ज्यादा इस्तेमाल किया जाता है। चुकंदर न केवल शरीर का मजबूती देता है बल्कि गॉल ब्लेडर को साफ भी करता है साथ ही लिवर के कोलोन (colon) को भी साफ करता है। खीरा में मौजूद ज्यादा पानी की मात्रा लिवर और गॉल ब्लेडर दोनों को डिटॉक्सीफाई (detoxify) करती है। गाजर में भी विटामिन सी और उच्च पोषक तत्व (high nutrient) होने के कारण यही गुण होते हैं।उपचार- एक चुकंदर, एक खीरा और चार गाजर को लेकर जूस तैयार करें। इस जूस को प्रतिदिन दो बार पीना है। जूस में प्रत्येक सामग्री की मात्रा बराबर होनी चाहिए, इसलिए सब्जी या फल के साइज के हिसाब से मात्रा घटाई या बढ़ाई जा सकती है।

5. पुदीना (mint)- पुदीना को पाचन के लिए सबसे अच्छी घरेलू औषधि (home remedy) माना जाता है जो पित्त वाहिका तथा पाचन से संबंधित अन्य रसों को बढ़ाता है। पुदीना में तारपीन (terpenes) भी होता है जो कि पथरी को गलाने में सहायक माना जाता है। पुदीने की पत्तियों से बनी चाय गॉल ब्लेडर स्टोन से राहत दे सकती है।उपचार- पानी को गरम करें, इसमें ताजी या सूखी पुदीने के पत्तियों को उबालें। हल्का गुनगुना रहने पर पानी को छानकर इसमें शहद मिलाएं और पी लें। इस चाय को दिन में दो बार पीया जा सकता है।

6. खान-पान और दिनचर्या में बदलाव (changes in diet and daily activity)- रोजाना 8 से 10 गिलास पानी जरूर पीएं। चाहे प्यास न भी लगी हो।वसायुक्त या तेज मसाले वाले खाने से बचें।प्रतिदिन कॉफी जरूर पीएं। बहुत ज्यादा भी नहीं लेकिन दिन में एक से दो कप काफी हैं। कॉफी भी पित्त वाहिका को बढ़ाती है जिससे पित्त की थैली में पथरी नहीं होती।अपने खाने में विटामिन सी की मात्रा बढाएं। दिनभर में जितना ज्यादा संभव हो विटामिन सी से भरपूर चीजें खाएं।हल्दी, सौंठ, काली मिर्च और हींग को खाने में जरूर शामिल करें।
