Hi All, I am suffering with GERD and esophagus damage with 6 mm lining. And I am taking medicine for these and presently using iladc-l for this decease.

Since your body doesn't make vitamin B12, you'll need to get it from animal-based foods or from supplements, and it needs to be consumed on a regular basis. Exactly how much you need and where you should get it from depends on things like your age, the diet you follow, your medical conditions, and in some cases what medications you take. Aristoneurol injection can be taken Cyanocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to treat low levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells, and nerves. Injections can be taken. Blood report is fine.

Hi, you should know the bad effects of masturbation.These are following:-1. Masturbation makes you weak, it spends more energy and burns your calorie 2. Masturbation creates nervousness and neurological problems 3.Masturbation is a main cause for erectile dysfunction. 4. Masturbation addicts you even if you taste it for one time. Controlling it is a very big menace. 5. Masturbation creates drowsiness; you will be sleeping most of the time after ejaculation of your sperm. You will experience a damn tired. 6.Masturbation causes stress and strain in your mind and soul. 7. Masturbation also affects us psychologically; it creates depression after ejaculation and makes one to feel bad on his own. If you are having pain abdomen and knee pain after doing self sex, then you must stop it. Take Five phos 6x, 5 tabs twice daily. Revert me after 15 days.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first. If any concern then feel free to contact we will then discuss and start you on medication if needed as every one has a different requirement of medicine.

I have pancreatic problem and treatment is going on but I have habit of smoking. Is smoking harmful during this disease. I also want to know if I used nicotine chewgum. Is it ok. Kindly suggest.

0Smoking is definitely harmful overall and more so in chronic pancreatitis (i assume that is the diagnosis). It leads to worsening of symptoms and development of cancer in chronic pancreatitis. You should quit immediately or get help to quit as soon as possible.

Irrespective of diagnosis you should do one thing. Take plenty of leafy vegetables, take plenty of water but not during lunch or dinner. Avoid water when you take food. At least 30 minuets before and 60 minuets after taking food. Avoid any kind of fast and junk food. Avoid biscuits and bread of any kind. Fibrous diet can solve your problem. Regarding piles - if the stools are dry or hard it causes some injury to the anal canal. I need to know whether it is bleeding or non bleeding. You can do one thing. Take a tub with warm water. Add some savlon liquid in it and sit in this tub for about 30 minuets. It will give some soothing effect and also will reduce if any infection is their.

Take Homeopathic Treatment. Gall bladder stones is a commonly occurring phenomenon. The important point to observe is that most of them are 'silent' stones and do not exhibit any symptoms or complications. Most of them are detected through routine diagnosis like Ultrasonography (USG) or X-Ray or CT Scans. It is a well documented fact that if a stone remains silent for 15 years it virtually has no chance of exhibiting any symptoms or complications. Gallstones are hard deposits of digestive fluid that can form in the gallbladder. Gallbladder is a small organ on the right side of the abdomen with digestive fluid called bile that is released into the small intestine. Gallstones can vary in size. Homeopathy provides a wide range of efficient medicines to treat gall stones. The Homeopathic remedies for gall stones are made of natural substances and have no side effects. The best Homeopathic remedy for the patient is prescribed after taking note of the gall stone symptoms in each individual. Please note that Every case calls for detailed study of the patient individually. There are no disease specific medicines in homeopathy. The exact treatment is determined only on "in-depth" evaluation of the individual case. Consult online for homeopathic treatment. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.
