I was told I had gastro oesophageal reflux disorder, nowadays I vomit yellow liquid in mornings ? What is the problem exactly with me ?

Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MS - General Surgery
Gastroenterologist, Pune
After swallowing, food passes through the esophagus into the stomach across the lower esophageal spinchter (les). Normally this les prevents reflux of ingested food. But when this spinchter becomes weak, food refluxes from stomach into esophagus. Sometimes it can come in mouth as well. This is gerd or gastro esophageal reflux disease.

I had my angioplasty five years back From last one year I am having swelling in my leg. It worsens as the day proceeds. Nephrologist Dr. kale after seeing all test said there is no problem in kidney. All my heart test were also ok. I was diagnosed fatty liver last month. Please suggest.

Fatty liver is graded and if grade 2, it can be prevented from becoming grade 4 leading to liver failure. Fatty liver means presence of fat cells on top of delcate liver cells, causing pressure on them making their functioning low. You can/ cannot reverse fatty liver, opinion is divided for grade 2, no harm in using less fats & do some exercise who you must be because of cardiac condition, drink juice of lemon plus a spoon of honey with warm water on empty stomach in morning, drink apple cider vinegar, a spoon with honey or juice, all of the above burn fats in body including liver. Try for a month and get tested by ultrasound to know fresh status of liver. Remember healthy liver cells rejuvinate very fast, provided you do not take any toxic food or medicines like heavy antibiotics.

I am suffering from acidity while in lateknight watching movie, or in night shift, is there any precautions to be taken or what is the remedial action to be taken.

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,
Having meals at regular intervals and a good sleep is important for your digestion. Avoid eating spicy food, oily food to reduce acidity. Also you can have kokum agal to reduce acidity. Increase your water intake to 12 glasses per day . Add fibre rich food like green leafy vegetables, flax seeds, salads etc to your diet to improve digestion.

Hello sir, I feel so weakness, and I become tired hurrily while running or while doing any work. Another problem is my foreskin of anus is not on backside like others. The circumference is small. I am 18 year old.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, take homoeopathic mother tincture acid phos q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals in a cup of water. Try to get a un-interrupted sleep of 8 hours daily. Drink a lots of water daily. If you have a habit of masturbation then you should not masturbate for more than twice in a week. Abstain from any type of addiction if you have any. For the another problem I would like to know whether you are talking about the foreskin of your penis. If you are talking about your penis then I have a solution for you. You may be suffering from a clinical condition called phimosis. The most conventional method to get rid of it is surgery. However, if you are unwilling to undergo surgery then you can try the following process at home. 1) buy any local anaesthetic gel (e. G. Lidocaine, lignocaine, xylocaine) from allopathic retail shop. 2) apply a little amount of that anaesthetic gel at the lower part of the prepuce of penis where the foreskin remains attached. 3) after application of the gel, retract the foreskin backwards as far as you can. Due to the anaesthetic property of the gel you will be able to retract the foreskin backwards to some extent more than you can do in normal condition. 4) release the foreskin when you feel pain 5) again repeat the same process. Do it continuously for at least 30 minutes in a day. Within a month you will feel that your foreskin has become loose.

Im suffering from loss of appetite and digestive disorder. For this reason i'm very thin, and weak. Please tell me any remedies to increase digestive power and appetite.

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Visakhapatnam
In addition to a loss of appetite, it is common to experience nausea and vomiting after a traumatic injury. If these feelings are present, try these suggestions: Eat dry food in the morning, such as toast or crackers. Avoid taking medications on an empty stomach unless instructed to by your doctor/pharmacist/nurse. Avoid hot foods or foods with significant smells/odors if you are sensitive to the smell of foods. Eat smaller, frequent meals and snacks every 2-3 hours. Sit up for at least 30 minutes after eating. Eat slowly. Take sips of cold clear drinks like water, fruit juice, or sports drinks throughout the day. Stay on top of your bowel program to avoid constipation, which can worsen nausea. Avoid gas-forming foods like onions, cabbage, broccoli or dried beans.

Colic Pain - How To Treat It

Colic Pain - How To Treat It

The word colic directly refers to the colon. Colic pain is a sharp abdominal pain followed by bouts of crying usually occurring in infants below the age of one year. The pain only last for a short period of time ranging from a few weeks to a couple of months. Very few number of babies will cry endlessly indicating towards an underlying condition.

It is mainly characterized by sharp crying for supposedly no apparent reason, irregular sleep patterns, and restlessness or owing to deviation from normal postures. The apparent causes of colic pain include indigestion and negative reaction of the sensitive gut to the breast or formula milk, although no concrete cause of the state has been discovered.

Doctors often suggest home remedies such as swaddling, pacifiers, holding and comforting the baby and more frequent feedings to reduce the condition. Since it is so common among infants and relatively less harmful, no proper medication is usually given. Physicians suggest mothers to reduce the content of caffeine, alcohol or spice in their diet. Sometimes a warm bath, burping the baby or going on more frequent walks is useful. Background music draws the attention of the baby and hence drives their focus, away from the abdominal pains.

Colic pains are mainly treated by care rather than medicine. The baby is made to feel comfortable and the distress is reduced just by being around the infant. The primary care giver plays an important role in consoling the child and helping them get through the sudden pain which further plays a significant role in personality development. Colic pains are extremely short lived and probably one of the first few challenges of parenthood. They are primarily dealt with care and feeding except in extreme cases where medicinal cures such as lactase drops and simethicone drops are used to treat the abdominal pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

General Physician,
His diabetes is not properly controlled. Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

Hello lybrate-user, sorry that your mother is struggling with anxiety and depression. Kindly give her plenty of fresh fruit juices. High carbohydrate good is said to increase serotonin levels to fix mood. Try spinach, sunflower seeds and dried herbs in her diet. If you eat non-veg then white meat can also be beneficial and included in the diet plan. Let me know if you need more further help on this. Hope your mother feels better. Regards.
