What diet is to be followed to ensure that there is clear bowel movement at 0530 inthe morning?

What diet is to be followed to ensure that there is clear bowel movement at 0530 inthe morning?
As here it was mentioned there is h/o c/ohypothyroid, that also causes constipation. But in general for daily regular free evacuation, you need to first set your biological alarm in that way, that you can maintain suffficient hrs of sleep&food properly. You need to follow spcfc timings for food intake. For breakfast, lunch& dinner. For easy stool, the dinner part shows more impact, thats why, its always suggestable to take light, bland diet& more fibre rich food, with more proteins. Like whole wheat. Pulkas, or jawar roties is good. Even in day also, you should take more raw veg salsds, fluids, water, solids also, like sprouts, dal, veg curries, fruits. You should avoid or lessen the intake of oily, junk, spicy, fast food, which will show impact defntly on next day evacuation. Taking minimum 3-4 litres. That to 1/2-1 litre in morning itself with empty stomach will give great results. Always keep in mind that early to bed, spcfc timings for food[not too late& not after 9 pm], maintaning of quality in food like rich fibre, more fluids, proteins is always good.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) refers to acid reflux, or backward flow, of stomach acid and other contents into the esophagus. If stomach acid moves backward up the esophagus, reflexes result in spasm of the airways that can cause shortness of breath and coughing. In some instances, acid reflux can be so severe that substances can be inhaled (aspirated) into the lungs and cause similar symptoms as well as damage to lung tissue. In some individuals, no sensation of heartburn is felt and their only symptom may be cough.

It's good to avoid outside food and nice to have home food, don't force her to eat junk food it will cause acidity, spice and fried foods will cause acidity so better avoid them rather than using medicines to counter act the effect.

Hi I am suffering from Ulcerative Colitis and right now i am on a stage of severe ulcerative colitis which is also known as pan ulcerative colitis. I am on steroids. I am little bit tired with my daily food routine. I am confused what to eat and what not. My doctor is not responding well too. So i have a question about ,can i eat eggs, cheese, and paneer and tomatoes in daily routine? Please reply.

Diploma in Diabetology, CCT (Rheumatology & Internal Medicine), MD - Internal Medicine

Ulcerative colitis does not have a single diet plan but you take less fiberous diet so your bathroom visits are reduced. You can take eggs cheese and paneer and other milk products if you are not having any milk protein allergy. You avoid fruits and vegetables as they have high fiber content but one or two tomatoes wont hurt you that much. Keep a diary and pen and track what you ate, what caused problem and avoid it as anything can cause flaring of disease depends on individual. Some items are common troublemakers for people with UC, including: alcohol caffeine carbonated drinks dairy products, if you?re lactose intolerant dried beans, peas, and legumes dried fruits foods that have sulfur or sulfate foods high in fiber meat nuts, crunchy nut butters popcorn products that have sorbitol (sugar-free gum and candies) raw fruits and vegetables refined sugar seeds spicy foods

in fatty liver disease the type of food doesn"t make much difference. It is the calories which matter. the calorie intake should equal the expenditure
