General Physician,
Treatment of Summer Diarrhea

One loose motion is equal to one glass of ORS. Most summer diarrhea is watery, effortless and painless diarrhea with no mucous or blood. No antibiotic is needed. The only treatment is oral rehydration solution.

One loose motion is equivalent to loss of one glass of fluid. If a patient has passed 10 loose motions, he needs 12 glasses of ORS apart from normal requirement of fluids and one glass for every loose motion passed again.

For up to 12 loose motions, a patient can be managed as an outpatient but if the loose motions are more than 12, he needs observation and if the numbers of loose motions are more than 40, he needs intensive treatment.

The main complication is renal shut down, which will happen if the blood pressure remains low for more than few hours. During loose motions, one should maintain that he or she passes urine every 6-8 hours. If no urine is passed for eight hours it may indicate an impending renal failure.

How long average fatty liver patient can live Fatty liver can live long please answer.

General Physician, Mumbai
How long average  fatty liver patient can live Fatty liver can live long please answer.
Fatty liver means deposit of fatty tissue in lungs. It has grades, and if care is not taken the fatty tissue keeps on increasing. The liver is an important organ to handle carbohydrates in our diet. If liver does not function properly, it leads to diseases like Diabetes and heart diseases. Thus directly or indirectly, fatty liver is going to cause problems. The duration of years depends on our diet and lifestyle. If properly corrected, the fatty liver can easily be reversed.

Hi, I had ulcer in stomach 1 year back, and was cured properly due to consolidated diet and medicine as precautions. But now occasionally I am feeling some pain and itching internally in stomach. How to treat it in a mannered way?

It may gas-distention trouble due to indigestion. Have simple bland food (Khichadi) for next few days avoiding junk, oily, spicy fried and deep-fried food items. Drink lot of water. Add Jeera, Ajwain, Sonth in your food items – these herbs prevent gas formation. Reduce intake of tea – coffee. Instead you can have green tea. Do not lye-down or sit immediately after having meals. Have a walk instead. Maintain good bowel habits. Have more of Coconut Water, Gulkand etc to relieve acidity, Avoid too much of Cauliflower, Peas, Brinjals, Namkeens as snacks etc. Do regular walking and mild exercises. You may also do a weekly fast – just to relax and calm down your system. Fasting also helps in cleansing of the system. For gas some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.

You need to avoid fats and refined food. You should take 5 small meals instead of bigger meals. Fibres may increase diarroea. Other food like chocolates, coffee, beans, milk may need to be avoided according to the sub. Which aggravate pt. S symptoms. You can consult as a private pt.

What are the common causes of diarrhea among children? and sign and symptoms of sever dehydration.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
What causes diarrhea Diarrhea may be caused by a temporary problem, like an infection; or a chronic problem, like an intestinal disease. A few of the more common causes of diarrhea are: Bacterial infections. Several types of bacteria, consumed through contaminated food or water, can cause diarrhea. Common culprits include Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, and Escherichia coli. Viral infections. Many viruses cause diarrhea, including rotavirus, Norwalk virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, and viral hepatitis. Food intolerances. Some people are unable to digest some component of food, such as lactose, the sugar found in milk. Parasites. Parasites can enter the body through food or water and settle in the digestive system. Parasites that cause diarrhea include Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Cryptosporidium. Reaction to medicines, such as antibiotics, blood pressure medications, and antacids containing magnesium. Intestinal diseases, like inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease. Functional bowel disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, in which the intestines do not work normally. Here are some signs of dehydration to watch out for: Sleepiness. Irritability. Thirst. Less elasticity in the skin. Eyes and fontanel (or soft spot on head) appear sunken. Decrease or absence of tears. Dry mouth. Decrease number of wet diapers.

Do warm saline gargle regularly. Twice or thrice daily have homemade freshly prepared lemon juices which is rich in vitamic therby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevents infection including viral infecdtion. Take plenty of water by mouth go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercise. It will be alright.

What could be the possible reason for a small guilty like boil near the anus. I am a 35 years old female. I maintain proper hygiene and am worried now.

Dear, If it was painful to start with and not now then you lave p[erianal haematoma doe to constipation. If it is still painful the parianal abscess is likely. If it is very on analverge then you might have external pile which has chronic aanal fissure4 due to passage of hard faeces due to constipation. If really worried the consult aq proctologist or a general surgeon. Dr. Kiran Mehta.
