But now after ultrasound I found there is hepatomegaly with grade 1 fatty change. And also last time my cyst size was 45×48 mm but now its enlarged to 63×52 mm.

Hello Doctor

Hepatic cysts in usg can be classified in two broad categories - simple or complex cysts. Simple hepatic cysts in liver with increasing in size of 1 cm over 1 year is not a problem. Complex cysts with increasing size of both liver and cyst - warrants further investigation. Grade I fatty change is seen in 60 - 75 % of the population - no need to get panic for this. Suggestion- I would suggest to do contrast enhanced ct (cect - triple phase abdomen) if not / mri liver. Since we do not know whether hepatic cyst is simple / complex.

What is remedy to cure gall bladder stones there are two stones measuring 2 mm and 1.7 mm as per ultrasound report.

What is remedy to cure gall bladder stones there are two stones measuring 2 mm and 1.7 mm as per ultrasound report.
You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones.

Try to lose your weight. And avoid oily and junk food and dahi and sour products e. G. Pickles etc. No rich proteins and non veg. Try to use light diets and soups of carrots and beetroot with ginger, black pepper and salts. Use khichari and dariya with green vegetables and moong daal. Follow regular daily routine getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours. Hingwastak curna or shivakshar pachan churn - one tea spoon with warm water after meals twice daily. If you feel better result then continue it for one month. Otherwise revert for further guidline.

You are continuing this problem since last 5 yrs. It is very necessary to get yourself investigated and diagnosed properly. Gas formation can be due to many reasons. You should get your gastroendocopy done to rule out peptic ulcer and many other conditions. Ultrasound examination also desired to rule out gall bladder stones etc. These investigations are easily available at any hospital. Meanwhile you take nexpro l I tab daily empty stomach.

ACIDITY :SO SIMPLE REMEDIES

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
ACIDITY :SO SIMPLE REMEDIES
Here are tips to prevent Acidity/heartburn/GERD.
-Relax and eat food slowly;Take time to eat- don't rush. Avoid skipping breakfast.
- Eat smaller meals;Don't overeat 
-Limit fluids intake during meals. As it increases stomach distension. 
-Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol)
-Stop smoking. & Avoid alcohol;Try meditation, stretching or deep breathing instead
-Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach.
-Lose weight; Extra fat places pressure on abdomen, pushing gastric juices up 
-Do daily exercise.like walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion
-Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position.
HOME REMEDIES:
-Chewing gum after meals. stimulates saliva production, which neutralize stomach acid .Herbal Tea improves digestion and soothe gas and nausea. Take low fat milk.
-Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food 
-Juices-Citrus drinks such as orange, tomato juice ,grapefruit, and pineapple juice are very acidic and can cause acid reflux. Other juices like apple,carrot,aloe vera,-are less acidic and thus safe.. 
-TREATMENT: 
-Antacids: for mild symptoms, like SUCRAMAL/DIGENE/Mucaine gel, may give relief. Other antacids, such as Gaviscon, create a protective foam barrier that coats the stomach 
-Proton Pump Inhibitors;for severe cases, these reduce acid in the stomach.ie:Pantocid –DSR/Sompraz-D/Rabicip-D.These are taken once/twice daily before meals.
