Dear lybrate user, you need to take homoeopathic carbo veg 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. You can also try homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company). Take 20 ml of the aforesaid liver tonic, thrice daily, after meals. Try to drink as much water as you can drink daily. Try to get an uninterrupted sleep of minimum 8 hours.

Don't worry. Angiography is just a test to check the location and extent of blockage in the heart blood vessels, a stent is put only if there is more than 75% blockage in a major vessel. Or else less than 70% blockage can be managed on medication only. Just trust on your doctor and good luck.

M suffering from stomach related problem since February this year. M not able to digest my lunch time food properly and I have to rush to the bathroom to poop for the second time in a day. This is happening daily. I have taken antibiotics which helped me to get relief but that was short lived. The problem came back after 4 to 5 days when I had to remain empty stomach for 2 hours. Moreover ; stress seems to worsen the situation. Please help me.

Hi Flatulence can be a side effect of some of the diabetic medicine. Have low fat curd as the good bacteria in them will help you. Take in fibre supplements. Preferably plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
