Hello It need long time get complete symptomatic recovery after treatment. U need to show patience. As I said, the recovery time differ from one to another. It depends on the severity and the damage done. Here I m sharing some essential information regarding h pylori acid peptic disorder information beneficial for u. H.Pylori peptic ulcers/acid peptic disorders h. Pylori is a contageous common type of bacteria that grows in the digestive tract and has a tendency to attack the stomach lining. It infects the stomachs of roughly 60 percent of the world’s adult population. H. Pylori infections are usually harmless, but they’re responsible for the majority of ulcers in the stomach and small intestine. "Acid peptic disease" is a collective term used to include many conditions such as gastro-esophageal reflux disease (gerd), gastritis, gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, esophageal ulcer, zollinger ellison syndrome (zes) and meckel's diverticular ulcer. Acid peptic disease is a result of either a decreased gastric mucosal defense or an excessive acid production. Causes 1.Infections:helicobacter pylori: h.Pylori is responsible for around 60%-90% of all gastric and duodenal ulcers. 2.Drug induced: more pain killer uses and steroids uses on body. 3.Addictions:smoking, alcohol, tobacco,tea coffee etc. 4.Diet :more spicy oily junk fast food, masal food infected food. 5.Other diseases: liver kidney intestine diseases 6.Bad life style and habits: excess tensed hurried work, night working, irregular food habits, more fastings 7.Stress-more pychologiacl and emotional disturbance stress tension 8.Harmonal issues- hypothyroidism hyperthyroidism stress harmones etc 9.Hypersensitivity-allergy to specific food or drugs. 10. Genetic :family history of apd "Hurry worry curry leads apd" Symptoms abdominal pain, abdominal bloating, flatulence chest burning ,heart burning. Burping nausea, water brash, Vomiting, bitter or sometimes straw coloured indigestion loss of appetite or more appetite I.E.Apetite imbalances weight gain/ weight loss depends on type of ulcers tips to control apd diet changes to take -sweet pungent and astringent items, cooked food, all leafy vegetables, sprouts,salads, sweet fruits high fiber diet and regularisied timely food intake to avoid-spicy, salty,sour masala oily fired items, snaks ,fast food junk food, processed food, irregular food habits avoiding stimulants- more tea, coffee,tobacco products, alcohol drinks, smoking etc life style modifications Avoid hurried tensed work, late night works, sedentary lifestyles.

Anulom vilom pranayam. Counselling get counselling for psychological and emotional problems it will give miraculous recovery. Proper medical advice "Half treatment is half cure" avoid hurray worry curry" only medication is not enough. Proper medical advice and diagnosis is important to find out complete cure. Hydrotherapy water as medicine plenty of water approximately 4 to 5 liters per day. Night kept copper vesseled water is good for apd. Home remedies 1.Drinking cold water/cold milk (as per digestion) kept in copper vessele for symptomatic relief 2.Banana or banana milk shake at night.

What is meaning of pancreatic amylase and what happens if value is 146. What should I do. What is absolute counts basophil. What happens if it's 0.01.what should I do. Thanks.

B.A.M.S, MD (Ayu.) Kayachikitsa
Ayurveda, Shimla
Dear Thanks for raising your concern 1. Pancreatic amylase is a digestive enzyme secreted by pancreas into the small intestine where it begins the chemical process of digestion 2. Normal value in some labs are upto 140U/L whereas in some labs it is in between 23-85U/L [so please double check or consult a qualified doctor/physician near your locality] and high value usually signifies either damage/blockage in the pancreas 3. Basophils are part of white blood cells which take part in strengthening the immunity of the body and low count usually signify either hyperthyroidism, allergic reaction or bacterial infection and since value of basophil count vary from lab to lab kindly consult your doctor for best options.
