It could be due to urinary tract infection 1. Do urine re/me, culture&sensitivity. 2. Consult physician with report for advice and treatment 3. Take a full course of antibiotic even if you feel better, 4. Drink plenty of water (8-10 glass daily) 5. Take pain reliever (anti spasmodic), 6. Avoid coffee//spicy food which irritates bladder.

Dear lybrate user, you need to take homoeopathic carbo veg 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. You can also try homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company). Take 20 ml of the aforesaid liver tonic, thrice daily, after meals. Try to drink as much water as you can drink daily. Try to get an uninterrupted sleep of minimum 8 hours.

Avoid spicy food items and not to eat junk food and we also need to avoid peanuts and potatoes in our daily diet and For constipation I will suggest you to eat food with high fiber content like green leafy vegetables and can also eat bananas at bedtime as it is effective as a laxative and if necessary take 10 ml of syp cremaffin at night

I am 30years old. I an suffering from stomach ache last 5 years. From last 2years I have a problem in breathing. And also acidity. Are these all related 2 each other. Please suggest any medicine.

DNB (Respiratory diseases), MBBS
Allergist/Immunologist, Nagpur
Yes related to each other. Acidity leads to loosening of tone of a tight elastic band between stomach and eating pipe. Then acid easliy regurgitates into eating pipe and leads to erosions and ulcerations in eating pipe. This may lead to extreme spasms and tightening of eating pipe leading to breathlessness even at rest. Rather than breathlessness there is problem of deep inhaling. Apart from medicines there are few lifestyle medications. I can help.

Can Lactose Intolerance Develop With Age?

Can Lactose Intolerance Develop With Age?

If you are feeling gassy and bloated immediately after having milk, it is time to reconsider your milk digestion power. While every baby is born with the ability to produce lactase, with age the ability to produce lactose decreases and the level of intolerance towards milk and other dairy products increases. This condition, however, greatly varies from individual to individual.

People in their 50's often find themselves to be intolerant towards lactose. When this happens, the lactose that is consumed travels into the colon undigested. This is the place where bacteria breaks down the sugar present into the lactose resulting in a fluid and excess gas.

According to a report published by the National Institute of Health, it is found that more than 60 percent of the aging population reduces their lactose digestion ability with time. The genetic setup of a person has a lot to do with it. The LCT gene is responsible for producing lactose in the body, an enzyme, which is responsible for digesting dairy based product. With age, this gene becomes less active resulting into lactose intolerance leading to various side effects such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and nausea.

According to a study conducted by the NIH, it is found that the people from an ethnic background such as Italian, Arab, West African Jewish and Greek are more prone to lactose intolerance than their peers. Lactose intolerance can also occur due to injury related to the small intestine. People are known to have fallen victims of lactose intolerance due to infection, radiation or diseases as well. According to a study conducted by the NIDDK (National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases), it is found that people become lactose intolerant if they consume poorly treated water.

Primary lactose intolerance is more common than secondary lactose intolerance. In Primary lactose intolerance, lactase gets generated in normal levels and then starts declining with age. While the reason for the onset primary lactose is not known, it can develop at any age and gets worse with age. The sad part of lactose intolerance is the fact that it does not get cured. The only solution is to completely cut down dairy products or lessen it to a significant extent.

While there is no hard and fast rule about lactose intolerance, it is a good idea to visit a doctor whenever the symptoms crop up. Often the reason of lactose intolerance can be entirely different from what is predicted. Addressing the underlying cause can free a patient from suffering from gas, bloating and inflammation. A doctor mostly conducts a lactose tolerance test to find out preliminary stage of the condition and then prescribes medication if necessary.

Hello Dr, In anal fissure, DId anus became red and swollen which make sphincter tight? And Did inflammation spread to whole anal sphincter?(Painless Inflammation) or This Is Infection which is spreading? Thanks.

MD - Internal Medicine

Anal fissure is a painful surgical condition. Mostly it affects the patients having constipation. First you have to take diet with high fiber which may siften the stool and chance of decrease inthe problem also there. If the problem is severe consult genral surgeon.
