After the removal of the gallbladder, you may experience diarrhea, which can improve over time or last for years, Certain foods may worsen your condition so you need to be aware of what foods are less likely to aggravate your system. Low Fat Foods Limit unhealthy food .Although the gallbladder may not be essential, it does play an important role in the digestion process, especially the digestion of fat. The gallbladder stores and release bile, which is a substance the body uses to process fat. After gallbladder removal, bile still flows from the liver into the intestines but in a more sporadic way, which can also causes discomfort after eating a particularly fatty meal. Avoid fatty foods, including dairy products because they can worsen diarrhea. Avoid fatty foods for a while after surgery and reintroduce them to the diet slowly over time. High Fiber Foods Fresh fruits and vegetables Eating more foods that are high in fiber, like brown rice and wholemeal bread, can help to make stools more firm,. Increasing your daily fiber intake gradually and include foods like fruits, vegetables, lentils and beans, in addition to whole grains. Eating smaller meals, more frequently, and evenly spaced throughout the day can also improve your digestion process. Furthermore, ensuring that you consume at least four servings of fruits and vegetables and four servings of breads and cereals daily is highly recommended especially after surgery. Another benefit of including foods that are high in fiber is that it can improve the movement of food through your digestive system and help to reduce bloating. Caffeine Free, Low Sugar Foods and Probiotics Limit caffeine. It is important to limit foods that can make diarrhea worse, like caffeine containing drinks and very sweet foods or drinks. Caffeine has a stimulating effect on your body. It kicks all your body systems into high gear, including digestion and these effects can exacerbate diarrhea. Abstain from coffee and tea altogether. Caffeine is also commonly found in sodas and chocolates and these foods should also be avoided.

Hello you are suffering from indigestion, upset stomach. Don't worry you will get relief with following homoeopathic medicines:- take lycopodium 30 ch 3 drops twice daily after meals. Gastrobin, 15 drops with water twice daily half an hour before meals. Alpha - liv, 2 tsp, once daily after dinner before bed. Drink 10 - 12 glasses of water per day. Do not take water just after and in between meals you can take it 45 minutes after food. Please do not eat outside food during the treatment. Revert me after 10 days. Take care.

Hello Lybrate user, by your symptom im guessing you have a condition called gastro-esophageal reflux disease. In this condition along with acidity in our stomach, reflux of the content in our stomach in our oral cavity takes palce resulting in bitter taste. Start taking antacids immediately and visit your nearby physician.

Hello, your body is highly acidic right now that means your body is producing more gastric juice (HCl). I suggest you to eat vegetable salads with broccoli, spinach and other vegetables of your like at least 3-4 times a day. Vegetables are highly alkaline (opposite of acidic) and will definitely help you in your problem. Also, Stress is the major cause of acidity so try be happy throughout the day.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Flatulence and the resultant farting is mainly caused by the decayed left over feces inside your large intestines. The main reasons could be indigestion and lack of habitual evacuation or improper bowel movement. For digestion you should use digestive measures and for timely evacuation you should use constipation aids. Take care.

Fresh blood drops coming during stool passing but no pain what is the reason please tell me doctor.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Hi firstly, do not panic. As you are saying there is no pain, the most common cause of fresh painless bleesing is piles. However, further evaluation and a detailed history will be required along with a clinical examination to come to a definitive diagnosis. Suggest you visit a general surgeon at your earliest. Regards.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day.Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos or tab. Naprosyn 500 mg once a day or sos for pain in joints.
