Then I went to gaestrologist for my stomach check up as my mouth becomes dry so early and for check up that may be it is coming from stomach gases but they also said that your system is perfect.

Please doctors suggest me something that is it right that I think alot about it and it comes all time due to over thinking. Nd if yes then please suggest some cure for it.

Since last 15 days I am having severe gastric problem and my family physician has put me on pentadom tabs. But not much relief. Please advise any further treatment. Thanks.

Doctors doesn't go for endoscopy in diverticulitis as it may lead to perforation. I need to have your report. You need to take high fibre diet as it is beneficial in diverticulitis. You may also take homoeopathic treatment along with it.

5 Common Gastric Problems Experienced By Diabetics!!

5 Common Gastric Problems Experienced By Diabetics!!

Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects almost every part of your body. Of these, the digestive system is the most badly affected. While gastrointestinal disorders are commonly experienced by everyone, diabetics have a much higher risk of suffering from indigestion, food poisoning, gallstones and ulcers. Some of the most common gastrointestinal problems experienced by diabetics are:

  1. Gastroparesis: High blood sugar levels can damage the vagus nerve that controls the emptying of the stomach. As a result fo this damage, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work optimally leading to a condition known as Gastroparesis. This is a condition where the stomach is not able to empty itself properly and the digestion process is slowed down. Gastroparesis can cause bloating, nausea, pain in the abdomen, heart burn and a loss of appetite. It can also cause undigested food in the stomach to harden and form lumps that block food from moving into the intestines. This disease cannot be cured but can be managed with medication and a special diet.
  2. Ulcers: Stomach ulcers can be described as open sores that develop on the inner lining of the stomach, oesophagus and beginning of the small intestine. These ulcers form as a result of bacterial infections. Diabetes weakens a person’s immune system thus reducing their ability to fight these infections and increasing the risk of developing ulcers. Diabetes also increases the risk of bleeding from these ulcers and secondary infections that may arise from it.
  3. Yeast infections: Diabetics are extremely vulnerable to yeast infections. This is aggravated by fluctuation in blood sugar levels and can extend from the mouth to the oesophagus. Common symptoms of this type of yeast infection are pain in the throat and difficulty swallowing. It may also cause heartburn and intestinal bleeding if left untreated.
  4. Celiac sprue: This condition creates gluten allergies and causes the inflammation and thinning of the small intestine’s mucosa. In some cases, this condition may interfere with the absorption of food and lead to diarrhoea and weight loss.
  5. Diabetic diarrhoea: Patients who have been suffering from diabetes for a few years may experience an increased urge to pass stools frequently. This is usually related to gastric problems in the colon which cause fluids to move at a faster than normal speed through the small bowel and colon. It may also be caused due to the secretion of fluids in the colon and improper absorption of food. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Yeh'ajeeran' aur'mandagni' kahlata hai. Iski vajah se bar bar shoch jana parta hai. Amoebiasis, aantra shoth, infection sabhi iska parinam hain. Iski vajah se ann pakta nahi (digest nhi hota) aur fermentation ho jati hai. Ooper se phir khana ya kuchh aur khaya jata hai. Ye sarne lagta hai aur gas paida hoti hai. Absorption bhi bigar jata hai. Mall me aam (mucous) aane lagta hai. Pet bhi dard karta hai. Sidhant roop se aapko langhan (upwas) karna chahiye. Garam pani peena chahiye, phir dheere dheere aapko halka bhojan shuru karna chahiye. Taki paachan sahi ho. Medicine me aapko'deepan'shodhan' aur'paachan' karne wali aushadhiyan leni chahiye. Aawashyakta parne per'parpati chikitsa' (a kind of ayurveda medicine category) karni chahiye. Aap langhan ke waqt dahi, chhachh ka prayog' karen. Bhuna zeera daalkar. (raat ko nahi). Basically bilv giri powder + shunthi powder + isabgul husk 1: 1: 1 ke anupaat me 2 tsp teen bar len. Morning, afternoon with curd aur raat ko garam pani ke saath. Saath hi chvya, chitrak, sonth, peepal, peeplamool herbs equally lekar, koot kar rakhen. 1 tsp 1 glass pani me ubalen. 1/4 rahne per piyen. Din me do bar. 1 se 2 saptah baad sampark karen aur parpati chikitsa' zaroori hui to 40 din tak lene ko kaha jayega. Aapka amoebiasis, aantra shoth, infection sab thheek ho jayenge. Paani saaf piyen. Chhachh (takra) peete rahen. Abhi kuchh din ubal kar thhanda karke piye (ye r. O. Se better hai)

If your child is having diarrhea .The most important thing is to give plenty of fluids so that your child will not go in to dehydration .If there is a blood in stool in that case you need to give antibiotics. Otherwise most of the diarrhoea resolved without antibiotics.

I'm having sharp pains in left waist when I touch its very sharp and otherwise it is dull ache in my waist. I noticed blood in my stool. What it can be doctors please help me its very concerning for me. I don't have any other symptom like vomiting nausea fever.

Loin to groin pain is observed urinary stones. You have blood in motion. Which is generally related to colon problems. Consult a surgeon. You may need sonography and/ or colonoscopy.
