Hi, I am male, 35 yrs of age, 5'9'85 kgs of weight. I have been suffering from bad digestion since past 6-7 years, it was like I will have an upset stomach very often and easily, will have loose motions frequently. But since past few months it has been very bad, I have to take Lopramide to continue my work and it is like 2-3 tab a week. My Doc is suspecting Irritable Bowel Syndrome and a Colonoscopy for that. I do not want to go for the procedure now. Can you pl suggest if my diagnosis is correct and the life style changes that may help me? What may the reason for such a sensitive stomach? I have used Flagyl, Methcoblamine, L-Glutamine and Vibact in the past.

1. Eat three small meals and three snacks evenly spaced throughout the day. It is important to avoid periods of hunger or overeating.
2. Eat slowly and chew foods well.
3. Be relaxed at mealtime.
4. Sit up while eating and for 1 hour afterward.
5. Avoid eating within 3 hours before bedtime. Bedtime snacks can cause gastric acid secretion during the night.
6. Cut down on caffeine-containing foods and beverages, citrus and tomato products, and chocolate if these foods cause discomfort.
7. Include a good source of protein (milk, meat, egg, cheese, etc.) at each meal and snack.
8. Antacids should be taken in the prescribed dose, one-hour and 3 hours after meals and prior to bedtime. This regimen is most likely to keep the acidity of the stomach at the most stable and lowest level.
9. Milk and cream feedings should not be used as antacid therapy. Although milk protein has an initial neutralizing effect on gastric acid, it is also a very potent stimulator. Hourly feedings of milk have been shown to produce a lower ph than three regular meals.
10. Caffeine-containing beverages (coffee, tea, and cola drinks) and decaffeinated coffee cause increased gastric acid production but may be taken in moderation at or near mealtime, if tolerated.
Can a non alcoholic fatty liver be converted into its normal state. It happens to me during pregnancy. Can I take livomap for this.
Respected Sir, I have been suffering from indigestion / gas formation for the past 4 weeks. At the initial stages, I had to go to toilet 5 times and it was watery stool most of the time. I visited a general doctor but later, I visited a Gastroenterologist and he gave me these two medicines - Equirex - 2 times a day RIFAGUT 400 MG - 2 times a day Now, I am having formed stool. But sometimes, I am pooping 3/4 times a day and sometimes it is 1/2 times a day. There is no heart burn or pain or vomiting or any blood in poop. Sometimes, there is a little discomfort in the left side of my abdomen but My poop is normal, sometimes it is a bit soft and it is like sausage most times. This week, the Doc said it is happening because of stress so he gave these two medicines only - Esoz 40 mg - one time a day Cilapam - H - one time a day I had done USG of Upper Abdomen and it is normal. I just want to know will my current problem like small gas formation and pooping [normal] 3 / 4 times [not everyday] are going to subside after few weeks? I would be grateful if I get a response. Kind regards deb.

The liver is a key organ in metabolism and will have some amount of fat. However, excessive fat accumulation in the liver can be abnormal and is referred to as fatty liver. If the fat content exceeds anything more than 5% to 10% of the liver’s weight, it would be referred to as fatty liver.
Types - There are mainly two types based on causes:
- Alcoholic fatty liver: This is very common in people who consume excessive amounts of alcohol. Even a one-off instance of binge drinking can cause increased fat accumulation in the liver, but it would not produce any symptoms though. Preexisting hepatitis, pregnancy, obesity, and genetic predisposition may also lead to alcoholic liver disease.
- Non-alcoholic liver disease: This is the less common type of fatty liver, and there would be no alcoholic abuse history here. However, there could be genetic predisposition, obesity, autoimmune liver disease, malnutrition, which can lead to this condition.
Fatty liver disease is a chronic condition with insidious onset (meaning to say, the exact time of onset cannot be pinpointed). However, as the disease condition progresses, symptoms will become evident, which can trigger a medical evaluation to identify the fatty liver. Some of the symptoms include:
- Excessive fatigue and weakness
- Unexplained weight loss
- Loss of appetite
- Trouble focusing and concentrating
- Impaired judgment
- Constant, slow enlargement of the liver can cause pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen (where the liver is)
- There could be jaundice, where the skin and the white of the eyes turn pale yellow
- Symptoms of liver failure, including increased levels of proteins in the chemical tests.
As noted earlier, it is not easy to identify liver disease, as there are no specific symptoms. However, the above symptoms could point to a potential fatty liver.
- Blood tests, especially for liver enzymes
- Ultrasound, where the liver is imaged to look for any structural changes
- Biopsy, where liver tissue is extracted to confirm the diagnosis of fatty liver
There is no specific treatment for fatty liver. It can be managed through the following, where symptoms reduce in severity, and overall prognosis improves.
- Diabetes control: There is a relation between how well diabetes is controlled and severity of fatty liver. Improving diabetes control ensures fatty liver does not progress.
- Alcohol: Cutting down or even better quitting alcohol, definitely helps improve symptoms. If it is alcohol induced fatty liver, alcohol should be stopped.
- Weight management: Obesity and fatty liver are related, so weight management is essential.
- Healthy diet: Eating a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen also helps improve symptoms of fatty liver. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.
