It's not related to gym but you may be taking protein supplements or a high protein diet which may cause it. There is nothing to worry about.

Hi to increase weight you should improve your digestive system. By digesting your indigested food with the help of remedy and medicines will ultimately increase your appetite and digestive system. Take chitrakadi vati after meal. Take ashwagandha churna with water twice a day. Take banana milk shake. Drink lots of milk and eat lots of milk products. Like butter. Ghee..

I am suffering from borderline hepatomegaly, kidney stone and I feel very much pain in my left upper abdomen.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, a kidney stone is mainly formed due to the accumulation of the minerals present in urine. Such accumulation occurs mainly due to low intake of fluids. Continous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But if the size of the stone is more than 3mm then you should surely go for surgery. For your hepatomegaly take homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company). Take 20 ml of the liver tonic, thrice daily, after meals.

My cousin is suffering from severe cellulitis. Symptoms blood with stool and going to stool 5-8 time.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Cellulitis is a medical term, if used by non medical person it may or may not suggest it as cellulitis. Considering he is right implies he has infection as the history is inconclusive i'm unaware if he is under treatment or not, if under treatment he has not been diagnosed correctly and is on wrong antibiotics which might have caused him to have blood in stools and passing frequently, drug induced. No history of fever, at times gram negative septicemia behaves like that. My advice is that patient should be hospitalized immediately and thoroughly investigated & treated.

General Physician,
Food poisoning with rice dishes

Staph and Bacillus cereus can cause acute food poisoning within 6 hours of ingestion of food. B. Cereus is likely when rice is the culprit
B. Cereus is able to persist in food processing environments due to its ability to survive at extreme temperatures as well as its ability to form biofilms and spores.
B. Cereus has been recovered from a wide range of foods, including rice, dairy products, spices, bean sprouts and other vegetables.
Fried rice is an important cause of emetic-type food poisoning associated with B. Cereus.
The organism is frequently present in uncooked rice, and heat?resistant spores may survive cooking.
Cooked rice, subsequently at room temperature, can allow vegetative forms to multiply. The heat-stable toxin that is produced can survive brief heating such as stir frying.
Two distinct types of toxin?mediated food poisoning are caused by B. Cereus, characterized by either diarrhea or vomiting, depending on which toxin is involved. The diarrheal toxin is produced by vegetative cells in the small intestine after ingestion of either bacilli or spores. The emetic toxin is ingested directly from contaminated food. Both toxins cause disease within 24 hours of ingestion.
The emetic syndrome is caused by direct ingestion of the toxin.
The number of viable spores and vegetative bacteria that produce diarrheal toxin is reduced by heating, although spores associated with emetic toxin are capable of surviving heat processing.
Cereulide is heat stable and resistant to gastric conditions.
The ingested toxin itself may therefore cause disease despite sufficient heating to kill B. Cereus.
The emetic syndrome is characterized by abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting. Diarrhea also occurs in about one?third of individuals. Symptom onset is usually within one to five hours of ingestion, but it can also occur within half an hour and up to six hours after ingestion of contaminated food.
Symptoms usually resolve in 6 to 24 hours.
Rice?based dishes in particular have been implicated in emetic toxin mediated disease, usually as a result of cooling fried rice dishes overnight at room temperature followed by reheating the next day.
The infective dose of cereulide required to cause symptoms is 8 to 10 micrograms per kilogram of body weight.
