May be overweight and underweight of gluten free.

Your Weight May Change
Regardless of whether you start out underweight or overweight, your weight likely will trend toward normal levels once you're diagnosed with celiac disease.And being following gluten free diet.

While many people think all new celiacs are underweight, studies have shown that most are a normal weight, while many are overweight. For example, one study found about 61% of newly diagnosed celiacs were considered normal weight, 17% were underweight for their height, and 22% were overweight or obese.

Following their diagnoses, the underweight patients tended to gain weight, while the overweight and obese patients tended to lose weight. The normal weight celiacs tended to stay at a normal weight.

Therefore, if you're overweight or underweight at diagnosis, you can expect to see your weight tend to normalize as a side effect of the gluten-free diet. However, if you indulge in too many gluten-free snack foods (which tend to be high in calories and low in nutrition), you could find yourself packing on a few unwanted pounds. So be careful.

Dear, with the details you have provided, I would say please avoid any fried foods that trigger gastritis and also avoid anything fattening as your liver cannot take it. Kindly include more fruits and vegetables. Protein in the form of dhals, pulses, cereals are fine. Include more water on a daily basis. All the best.

Drink plenty of liquids, such as a sports drink or water, to prevent dehydration. If you have trouble tolerating liquids, take them in frequent sips. Make sure that you're urinating normally and that your urine is light and clear not dark. Avoid milk and dairy products, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and fatty or highly seasoned foods for this problem.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Chronic constipation is often the lead cause behind ulcerative colitis. You definitely do need to streamline your diet which should mostly comprise of softly cooked or steamed vegetables with less of salt, oil, ghee, spices etc all. Preferably, use olive oil for cooking. The more bland the diet is, easily digestible will it be and the better it will be for your health/ recovery. Also, do consume well ripened fruits especially papaya & banana. Home made buttermilk (to which a pinch of fresh turmeric is added) and tender coconut water too are immensely valuable in this condition. Also consume vegetables like cabbage, carrot, papaya, beet, spinach and fruits like apple that can be of help. Do take care to avoid citrus fruits as it may exacerbate your colitis issue. Flesh foods, tea, coffee, sweets, cakes, pastries, greasy, oily, salty, spicy foods including fast foods are best avoided too. Fresh cold water fish, 3 times bi-weekly, helps. Do take plenty of water daily, and ensure that you get enough of bed rest, avoiding stress/ strain/ anxieties. Also, take care not to strain while passing stools. A light abdominal massage on a regular basis also helps. In addition to the above-mentioned natural guidelines, you can take 'Triphala Churna' (Patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, preferably after dinner, for next 1 month. Also, consuming 'Bael Churna' (Patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, post lunch, for next 1 month helps remove chronic constipation, if any and help feel better. Being a heart patient, with pacemaker (PPI ?), the above-mentioned advisory is subject to your cardiologist's/ endocrinologist's concurrence. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Dear lybrate user, prostate infection is common in young people like you, it is uncommon to get prostate infection unless it is not functioning the way it should, that is to say if you abstain from sex the chances of infection rises, however infection in prostate takes long time to subside as few drugs only can penetrate and reach prostate, my suggestion is try to empty the prostatic secretions by indulging in safe sex as much as you can and use antibiotics, you should see a senior urologist in your area and be patient enough and use medicines prescribed by the doctor.
