My Dad is 48 years old and he is recently discovered with a 15 mm gallbladder stone. He has also high blood sugar level. So my question is, is it necessary to have surgery only for removal of stone or it can be dissolved with medicine? if surgery is required than what kind of surgeries are available.

Homeopath, Sindhudurg
The homeopathic remedies for gall stones are made of natural substances and have no side effects. The best homeopathic remedy for the patient is prescribed after taking note of the gall stone symptoms in each individual.

As per as new guideline upto 70 years our body needs 600 IU dosage of vitamin D its deficiency causes osteoporosis(bone becomes weak and chances are there to be broken).many studies has proven that our body absorbs more amount of vitamins and minerals in its natural form rather than in the form of supplements.fish,dairy products,egg yolk,cheese ,orange juice are some of the rich sources of vitamin d .include more amount of fruits and salad in your diet.

I have lower abdomen pain since last one year. Sometime I feel cramp also. I am taking pain killer. Apart from this please suggest me what should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Please note that you should do a USG whole abdomen first to understand the diagnosis of the pain-in abdomen. If the pain is at the time of motions then it could be dysentery -- in that case do a Stool R/E done. Do not take pain-killer by yourself. Please note the following recommendation for your conditions: Enjoy a Cup of Chamomile Tea -- Pour boiling water over a teabag and cover your mug, letting it steep for 10 minutes. If using dried chamomile, place 1-2 teaspoons in a mug and cover with boiling water. Cover the mug and let steep for 15-20 minutes. Sip slowly. Use a “Hot” Pack-- Find a place to lie down, and rest the hot pack on your belly. It should be a comfortable temperature, but definitely warm. Do this for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you need to, reheating as necessary. For further queries get back to me.

A. What do you do? B. There is no other treatment for gall stones other than surgery. It is a very safe surgery and done laparoscopically with 1-2 days stay in hospital, don' t panic and get it done.

In hiatus hernia, part of the stomach pushes into the chest cavity. It enters via an opening where the food tube (oesophagus) passes on its way to the stomach. Hiatus hernias can have no symptoms. In some cases, they may be associated with heartburn and abdominal discomfort. Hiatus hernias may not require any treatment. Some are treated with drugs and a few types need surgical repair.

I am suffering from problems of pimples and due tu pimples my face has damaged what should I do?

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy

I am suffering from problems of pimples and due tu pimples my face has damaged what should I do?
Acne can be treated easily with facewash, tablets and creams. Some people have more oilyness on the face which results in breakouts. After completing treatment for controlling the active breakouts, tablets can be stopped and creams need to be continued to prevent recurrence. Diet and lifestyle modifications are also important. Please don't do any self treatment such as over the counter Steroid creams. Don't burst the pimples with your fingers as it can result in ugly scars. The marks left behind after the pimples heal can also be treated. Please call me or send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.

Anal fissure if not responding to conservative treatment needs surgery for permanent cure. Meanwhile you can apply nitroglycerine ointment for local application.
