Being an Ayurveda doctor I can suggest you eat light meals which are easily digestible bcoz you already suffers from Vata vridhi and Agni Dusti. Nourish yourself with light food followed by buttermilk. No heavy meals, no stress, little exercise, no late night awakening.

Consult a surgeon for gall bladder stone and visit a cardiologist for hypertension. Weight gain will happen however target BMI should be less than 25. Loss of libido is unlikely to be due to any of these conditions.

Hi lybrate-user, Take care of your water and fiber intake. Start your day with one to two glasses of water, by evening 7 PM do consume 10-12 glasses of water. Have 1-2 fruits per day include papaya, apple oranges in fruits. Do not consume any sodas, It's summers, may have buttermilk and if no medical condition than do consume coconut water, these will help to balance your fluid in body and will help to overcome constipation. For details you can message me through Lybrate private consultation. Thanks.

I had a gall bladder stone few days back. And it is operated now. What precautions should I take regarding food intake?

M. Ch., FEBS, MBBS
Liver Transplant Surgeon, Delhi
Normally no precautions are required after gallbladder surgery. It might happen that you will feel bloated after certain food types, but it is not necessary & neither is specific. It varies from person to person. In case you feel so then avoid that particular food else no precautions ever.

65% of Gluten-Free Celiacs Still Have a Raging Fire in Their Gut

The same 2009 study in The Journal of Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics of 465 Celiac Disease patients 16 months gluten-free found that 65% still had ?persistent intraepithelial lymphocytosis,? a.K.A. Inflammation in the gut.[4]
Their intestines are on fire with inflammation even after 16 months gluten-free. Why is that important?
We know gut inflammation is associated with a laundry list of health issues, including cancer and early death. That?s bad news for the conventional Celiac prescription and even worse news for the people not getting better on a gluten-free diet. Want more evidence gluten-free doesn?t put the fire out?
A 2008 study in the Journal of Inflammation looked at 18 symptom-free Celiac Disease (SFCD) patients and found they still had elevated markers of gut inflammation even after 2 years on a gluten-free diet. The authors reported:
?Faeces of both active CD and SFCD (symptom-free 1-2 years on a GFD) patients, representing an imbalanced microbiota, significantly increased TNF-alpha production and CD86 expression in PBMCs, while decreased IL-10 cytokine production and CD4 expression compared with control samples.? [5]
In another 2009 study from the American Journal of Gastroenterology, researchers looked at small intestine biopsies from 45 children with Celiac Disease and 18 clinical controls. The authors found an increased presence of T cells (inflammatory marker) in well-treated CD patients:
?The long-lasting presence of high frequencies of T cells in the epithelial compartment in well-treated CD indicates that the epithelium is stressed possibly because of constant attack.?[6]
Both of these studies looked at patients that are supposed to be ?healed?? supposedly ?well-treated.? Even though they appeared to be symptom-free, the medical tests paint a much different picture. These asymptomatic adults and kids still had inflammatory fires raging in their gut? promoting further disease development (like Cancer).
So far this research has only reviewed patients following a gluten-free diet for 1-2 years? but what about long-term? Does the body just need more time to heal and get back to normal?

Dear user. You quit alcohol Very nice. That is a bold and good step to safeguard your future health. Acidity and indigestion could be some of the withdrawal symptoms you could face after quitting alcohol. But definitely not unconsciousness. Do consult a doctor to find out why you fainted. Take care.

Dear Labrate user, you problem is related to digestion. Acidity is due to over production of acid or due to decreased movement of the digestive system. First stop using things that increases acidity like excess of tea coffee and doing fasting/ empty stomach. Take regular meals even small. The other nothing that is regular motion. If you have constipation that also increases acidity.
