Avoiding wheat proteins is the best treatment. Because wheat proteins appear in so many prepared foods, read product labels carefully. Left untreated, gluten intolerance causes other conditions, such as osteoporosis from poor nutrient absorption.

For frequent urination urine routine and blood sugar fasting and 2 hours food is to be done. Take the reports to your doctor who can guide you of further management. Frequency and incontinence are two different things. In incontinence there is no control over urine flow. This if at all present will be handled by a urologist.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for acidity. 1. Basil Leaves The soothing and carminative properties of basil leaves can give you instant relief from acidity, gas and nausea.Simply eat some basil leaves at the first sign of acid upset. Be sure to chew them thoroughly Another option is to boil three to five basil leaves in a cup of water and then let it simmer for a few minutes. You can sweeten this basil tea with honey. Do not add milk, though. Sip it frequently. 2. Cinnamon:-Cinnamon is good for your digestive health. It works as a natural antacid and helps dispel stomach gas. 1. Add half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder in a cup of water. 2. Bring it to a boil and then allow it to steep for a few minutes. 3. Drink this cinnamon tea two to three times a day. You can also add cinnamon powder to your soup or salad. 3. Buttermilk;-Another simple home remedy for acidity is buttermilk. It contains lactic acid that normalizes the acidity in the stomach. You can buy buttermilk or make it yourself. • Grind half to one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds with a little water to make a paste. Mix it in a glass of plain buttermilk, also called chaas, and consume it to relieve stomach ache caused by acidity. • Or, you can simply drink plain buttermilk several times a day until you get relief. Mix in a little black pepper or one teaspoon of ground coriander leaves for best results. 4. Apple Cider Vinegar Though acidic in nature, apple cider vinegar has an alkalizing effect. Thus, it helps treat stomach acidity. • Simply mix one or two teaspoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a cup of water. • Drink it once or twice a day. You can also drink it before meals. 5. Cloves Cloves can help alleviate acidity and dispel gas due to their carminative effect that increases hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Contrary to the popular belief, acidity can be caused due to low stomach acid too. • Chew two to three cloves thoroughly so that the juices are released into your system. • Eating crushed cloves and cardamom mixed in equal amounts can help minimize acid trouble and freshen bad breath that often accompanies this problem
