I am a 33 year old and I have been drinking alcohol almost alternate days over the last 1 year. Recently underwent a Liver function test and the results were as follows (Those in high level) Bilirubin T- 2.64 Bilirubin D-0.8 SGOT-54 SGPT-102 ALBUMIN-5.1 Rest of the things are under the normal level and looks fine. I would like to know if I am in a phase to give up alcoholic intake and move on. Please help me.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
lybrate-user, Your pattern suggests that slowly gradually are getting dependent on alcohol. Also your altered blood reports suggests the same. Its good that you are motivated to quit. I would suggest treatment that would reduce craving, also replace physical need of alcohol. Consult a psychiatrist for the same.

You are suffering from constipation. Homeopathic remedies are of great help in this. Eat fibre rich diet. Drink lots of water. Regarding you can't eat too much, Actly it's good medically. You should eat only 3/4 th of your hunger, never eat on full stomach. Also take water one hour after meals. Not immediately after food.

You may be having either internal piles. Then consult a surgeon. Or you could be having infestation of intestinal parasites like hook warms, round warms, tapen warms. Normally one should get dewarming done at least once a year if not six monthly. It is a single dose medication like albendazole or mebendazole. So get it done in consultation with a doctor near your locality. Avoid spicy and junk food which I believe you are already doing it take lot of water by month. It will be alright.

Hi Mixing two teaspoonfuls of ghee in a glassful of milk and taking this once a day acts as a liner inside the gut and will heal all the destruction caused by the high flow of Pitta. Take pranacharya aceno syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take pranacharya aceno capsule 1-1 twice a day. And avipattikar churna 1-1 gm with warm water. Take pranacharya udar bhaskar kshar churna twice a day with warm water. Take fresh butter milk empty stomach. Avoid tea. Coffee.spicy food. Junk food.

This looks like piles. One will have to assess its grade and any other associated problem. Early grade piles improve with general measures but may require surgery. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon. Purulent discharge might be due to a fistula. The surgeon will find it on examination.

I had acidity 2-3 days back. I didn't take any medication, j and vomited all out. Later, I took ENO, which relaxed me from acidity. Now I am eating fine, but stomach is constantly in pain, maybe due to oesophagus burns. I took "PAN 40" (3 tablets all before meals) which relieves temporarily, but stomach still hurts badly. What to do?
