Here are some home remedies to cure acidity.  - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

I am taking pantakind tab on alternative days for acidity. Is it safe to continue.

Unless you have got proven hyper secretion of acid, you should no go on taking this medicine unnecessarily and indefinitely. This is a proton pump inhibitor drug stopping even normal acid secretion which is essential for hydrolysis and partial digestion of proteins in the stomach. If the acid becomes less than required, your food remains unhydrolyzed and stays longer in the stomach without moving forward. On the contrary overstay of such undigested food and muscle contractions attempting to push it ahead may cause some of it to regurge back in the esophagus giving heartburn despite taking these tablets. So use any medicine if it is prescribed by a qualified physician only.

Hi, sir stool culture test me IBS Ka pata chal jata hai kya please reply in Hindi.
Nahi ibs ki problem ka stool cultutre se koi lena dena nahi hai, irritable bowel syndrome me bar bar motion intestinal mucosal irritation ki vajah se hota hai. Bel ka bina chini ka sharbat din me do bar le, kafi fayada hoga, chanch & dahi ka upyog bhi faydemand hoga. Adhik jankari aur check up ke liye Lybrate ke madhyam se contact kare.

BLEEDING DURING PASSING STOOL

BLEEDING DURING PASSING STOOL

Bleeding per rectum is the most worrying problem with many of us. What is required to check this?

Don't get panic.

See yourself it is coming mixed with stool or dripping drop by drop after passing the stool.

It is red or black in colour.

Do you have constipation?

How often is it repeated?

Any medication is taken on the previous day.

Any history of taking food outside in hotel or restaurant.

Any bleeding disorder you have which is known to you.

If you have any one of these make homework and contact doctor immediately with the answer to these question.

Most of the times it is controlled very easily but close watch and full medical opinion is required

Take medicines for a while. Get a repeat usg about 2 months later. If gall stones persists. Then plan to go for surgery when your child is about 6 months old.

Dear bleeding in motions is not a good sign. It can be due to many causes like haemorrhoids, colitis, diverticulitis, crohn's disease, anal fissure. Etc so visit a gastroentrologist cinically.

Lybrate-user, ibs. Is toublesome disease. To get rid of it you need to understand it n that it will not be cure just in a few day. It will take time. First you need to modify your life style. That is proper sleep. Wake up early, do regular excersise, avoid vender food oily n spice food. Do take a cup of fresh curd every day. And make a list of all food items that cozs discomfert in your bowel movment. And avoid them. Its an old saying" precaution is better than cure" hpy to help.
