It is clear from the history given of your illness that you are suffering from hyperacidity. Inability to eat spicy and oily food is a supportive evidence for this hyperacidity. It is due this excessive secretion of acid only that you suffer burning sensation in your stomach. It's good that you do not consume alcohol and do not smoke. However, since yo have developed this problem - you should take some anti acidity medicines to relieve your pain/burning. The medicine would also help you to avoid trauma that can happen to the inner lining of your stomach due to this acid.

You will have to leave alcohol forever if you want to remain healthy as it is affecting your liver so if you start again the damage will also start again there is no fixed time factor for it to recover.

Hello, before considering a proper diet, it is essential to start appropriate drug treatment particularly for diabetes mellitus and bring blood sugar level under control. Good conrol means having fasting around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Along with this diet and exercise are also equally important. A person with diabetes should - avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and high fat milk products. Similarly to control uric acid - avoid fish like sardines, salmon, scallops, trout, herring, mushrooms, mussels, organ meat, meat in general, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat cheese and alcohol. Can take milk products with low fat, skinned chicken green leafy vegetables, fruits etc. To control blood sugar diet should be providing exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. For acidity to be reduced frequent small meals are necessary so in diabetes. Refrain frrom spicy foods and too much of tea and coffee.

Best Diet for IBS Patients

IBS ( Irritable Bowel Syndrome) or Spastic Colon, is a disorder of the intestines that causes discomfort including stomach pain, abdominal gas, trouble with bowel movement,diarrhea, and even constipation. It isn't a life-threatening disease but having said that, it can be severe enough in some patients to interfere with daily functioning and routines.

Although difficult to cure completely, IBS can be managed with some alterations in a person's lifestyle, especially one's diet, which plays a crucial role in easing symptoms and improving the quality of life. Hence, following a dietary regime suited to the IBS system is paramount.

There is no one-size-fits-all, single best diet for IBS sufferers, but one must develop one's own diet plan by carefully observing and monitoring their food intake, whilst taking into account foods that generally provoke symptoms and those foods that are well tolerated.

Firstly, food allergies and intolerances such as lactose intolerance must be considered. Try dairy alternatives like soya milk, oat milk or even yogurt rich in calcium and vitamins.
Other culprits are fatty foods which worsen bowel symptoms as they are difficult to digest. Embark on a low-fat diet which is good for your heart and doesn't irritate the digestive tract's delicate lining. Steer clear of fried foods and instead choose low fat foods with minimal processing.
Should you go for a high fiber diet or a low fiber one? To decide, it's essential to consider which is more suited to your body. For some, a high fiber diet may be beneficial adding bulk to stools enabling a smooth trouble free bowel movement. Fibrous foods include fresh fruits, vegetables, and grains. However, if fiber ends up giving you a sense of bloating, include soluble fiber in your diet and limit grains.
Avoid hot, spicy foods, coffee, carbonated drinks, alcohol, and sugars: These are known triggers for IBS sufferers, and may stimulate colonic spasms. Eating healthy and getting the right mix of nutrients is essential as one needs to be careful about what his or her stomach can digest. And this makes avoiding unhealthy junk food a must.

Maintaining a food diary to observe and track the impact of different foods can be a good start towards planning a healthy diet.

You are most probably suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. In this condition the frequency and urge to go to toilet increases especially just after meals. Ibs can be caused due to many reasons out of which stress is one important cause. When your life and body are stressed, it can lead to ibs. You need to practice deep breathing and relaxation techniques. If your symptoms are not improved, you need to take prescription medication for a period of time. Please consult in private for prescription drugs.
