Dear lybrate-user, I am very much concerned about your issue. Antral gastritis is very common in present days situation due to consumption of junk food, untimely food, etc. As a sincere ayurveda follower and practitioner, I would recommend you following: 1) wake up early, sleep early. 2) do not take more of spicy, salted items. 3) gap between 2 foods should not be more than 4 hours. 4) take ample amount of liquid. 5) avoid fruits having pungent taste. 6) take milk twice a day. 7) gap between dinner and sleep should be minimum 90 minutes. 8) do not get stressful. You need medicines for time being till you get physically well. For the prescription, I need to ask certain other questions. Do chat with me privately for more accurate prescription and other diet issues.

I am having gall bladder stones along with Crohn's disease. Should I first operate the gall bladder and then focus about the Crohn's disease in case of persistence of further symptoms or should I first treat the disease and then go for the gall bladder operation? Please suggest what to do. I am also experiencing quite a lot of weight loss. I have lost around 6 kgs in around 12 days. Please also tell me the cause of this and if I am prone to some other complications. Other symptoms include vomiting and diarrhoea. Thanking you.

Your Crohn's disease will be there with you. If you are symptomatic for Gallstones, which is difficult to say due to your underlying Chrons disease, it is advisable to undergo surgery for Gall stones. As you r loosing weight it is advisable to undergo complete GI examination including UGI scopy, Colonoscopy and CECT abdomen to rule out malignancy.

I want to know about pancreatitis. What is the chance of life risk for any symptoms of pancreas. What is the reason of pancreatitis, as wel as I want to know about pancreas stone and gallblader stone and there life risk chances. And reason of the problems. And what is the best way of cure?

MD - General Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology
General Physician,
Pancreatitis means inflammation of pancreas. Pancreas is the organ which produces enzymes which helps in digestion of food and it secretes insulin and anti insulin hormone. If there is pancreatitis patient will have severe abdominal pain nausea vomiting, intolerance to fatty food, as it helps in digestion of fat. In long run patient will develop diabetes. Gallstones n pancreatic stones are are formed in the ducts through which bile and pancreatic enzymes pass through n opens in the initial part of the small intestine called jejunum where food which has been partially digested by enzymes in stomach needs to be alkalized as it's too acidic and prepared to be digested and absorbed. Some time stones in these passages can cause obstruction alone to the flow of bile then jaundice will develop. If stone is in distal part where pancreatic duct joins the bile duct that just before the opening in to intestine in that case flow of bile and pancreatic secretion will be blocked and along with jaundice, pancreatitis will develop, which is very severe and dangerous situation. People those who take too spicy and oily food, and drink excessive alcohol stand chances to develop pancreatitis and gallstones. Obesity too is a risk factor to develop pancreatitis.

My friend has a gastric problem. Actually whenever he eats some spicy food or something chilly, he gets loose motion and it continues for some days. But when he takes normal food the same doesn' t happen. Is there any permanent solution to the problem and also is it related to liver?

MBBS, DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
First, its not gastric problem that you have described. Tell your friend to give complete detail of the problem. Then it will be possible to advice her. Also, it does not look related to liver, but not possible to comment with preliminary data.

Firstly you have to avoid intercourse in early weeks of pregnancy and if she is having pain in abdomen she should have a lower abdomen scan and get consult from your gynaecologist for the complaints. She should take rest and avoid exertion and should not take any pain killers unless advised by a gynaecologist.

Please take Fluoric acid 30 - twice daily for next 2 weeks. Apply Jaborandi hair oil. Also use Arnica shampoo. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily. Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. Add more vitamin rich food to your diet. Avoid stress and anger by meditation. Cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. Take sound/good sleep. Avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight/ hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends. Continue treatment as you are having so many issues you need further consultation.
