Sure there is a remedy. Feeling of the acidity could be because of one of the many reasons like reflux, hiatus hernia gastritis or ulcer disease. Apart from few other reasons. Proper diagnosis and treatment will give you the right remedy.

If bleeding is painless then most commonly your piles/ haemorrhoids are bleeding. If you are above 45 years of age or else younger with family history of colonic problems then you need to be checked for your colonic problems too. Bleeding from piles/ haemorrhoids usually happens when size increases (higher grades). You need to see an expert coloproctologist, get proctoscopy done and further treatment based on findings. Drink plenty of fluids and have more fibres in diet to prevent constipation.

Stop ppi group amaze as it carries lots of side effects like multi organ failure, memory loss & disorientation - if taken like saunf over a period of time. You are only 22 & you can modify your eating habits. Less of oils & spices & more of seasonal fruits and vegetables but no juices as fiber acts like cotton which absorbs the acid. Get cardiac tests done, if normal, your anxiety will get relieved. Ecg, echo followed by stress test, blood for sugar & total lipids. You are overweight also. Reduce weight @ 5 kgs/month only by diet & exercise-take help from some learned person. Get an ultrasound of abdomen done to rule out stones. Get back here with reports for more guidance.

For acidity and gas problem you should follow this. For cerebral attack neurologist opinion is must. Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

Hello lybrate-user, though it's difficult for you but avoid spicy, fatty and roadside cold food. Drink clean water and if possible carry clean water during travel. Some times due to wrong food habits persistent infection occurs in stomach and cause chronic symptoms. In such case consult your doctor.

Acidity: things to do: eat slowly. Have frequent meals instead of one large meal at a time. Have curds or lassi to decrease acidity. Drink 6, 7 glasses of water per day. Things not to do: avoid spicy and fatty food. Avoid eating eggs. Do not sleep immediately after having a meal. Do not be angry over anyone. It increases the acidity in the stomach. Do not take stress. Constipation: drink 6, 7 glasses of water everyday. Take diet rich in fibre like vegetables, fruits. Avoid fast foods like pizza, bread, etc. Drink warm water after getting up in the morning. Do exercises preferably in the morning. Even walking or jogging can help.

Don't eat large amount of food at one time. Eat small amount of food in 2 to 3 hrs of interval. Don't drink cold water or large amount of water just after the food this will cause indigestion. Try to take food 2 to 3 hrs before sleeping at night. Avoid junk food, spicy and oily food. Exercise regularly. Eat fibrous food like salads and vegetables.

Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry. Kindly get your CBC ESR done and revert.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Do I need it?

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Do I need it?

Omega 3 fatty acids during pregnancy. Do I need it?

1) if I take omega 3 fatty acid supplements during pregnancy, it will help my baby's brain development better?

There is not enough evidence that supplements help to boost a baby's brain power. Omega3's in a mom's diet are definitely beneficial though. Taking fish oil capsules does not have same health benefits eating fish as along with omega 3, fish are good sources of proteins, calcium and vitamins b and d which one doesn't get from fish oil capsules.

If at all someone is taking these supplements, it should be taken at the start of a meal to avoid the fishy taste and burps.

2) are there any proven medical benefits of fish oil supplements?

Fish oil have omega 3's in the form of dha and epa. They are good for people who have high triglyceride levels as it helps to lower the triglyceride level in the blood but one must take at least 2-4 g per day to have this effect. How much dha we get out of a particular brand of capsule is not known as fish oil is sold over the counter and is not regulated by drug agencies. Fish oil may also help in controlling diabetes. They may also reduce complications in a person with known heart disease. If you have none of the conditions above it is much better to simply eat fish as and when you want.

Please remember that may also act as blood thinners. People who are on ecosprin, or heparin or any other medication for heart disease should take it only on prescription and be monitored regularly.

3) can I get omega3's from any other source?

While fish is a good source of omega 3's, it is not readily available in many parts of our country. Also vegetarians can get it from walnuts, dark leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, algae oil or flaxseed oils. But vegetarian sources are poor replacements as compared to fish.

Krill oil which is made from shrimps has as much omega 3's as fish oil.

4) how much fish should I eat to get enough omega 3's?

It is recommended to eat one cup fish twice a week and up to 4 cups of cooked fish are safe for consumption. Frequent fish eaters should mind the mercury contained in certain fish. Shrimps, tuna, salmon and catfish are generally low in mercury while mackerel, sharks and swordfish have high mercury content. Pregnant women should definitely try to reduce the mercury content in their diet.

Does Celiac Disease Reduce Fertility?

MRCOG, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Does Celiac Disease Reduce Fertility?

Celiac disease is a condition in which the small intestine becomes sensitive and reactive to gluten, leading to difficulty in digesting food. Gluten is a kind of a protein found in wheat or barley. In reality, if either of the partners is suffering from celiac disease then you are prone to fertility related issues.

Impact of Celiac disease

As compared to men, this disease is more common among women in general. Women suffering from the disease are generally more prone to infertility and other genealogical problems like preterm births and miscarriages. In the case of men, the disease causes the infertility problems including sperm abnormalities such as low count, abnormal shape, reduced function and such others. Additionally, men with the untreated celiac disease might also have reduced levels to testosterone.

Infertility and Celiac disease

Infertility is one of the lesser known effects of the celiac disease, which is relatively uncommon amongst people. The disease causes infertility by affecting the menstrual cycle among women either in a direct or indirect manner. Some of the infertility related problems caused due the disease are listed below.

  • Delayed occurrence of menstruation
  • Early menopause
  • Secondary amenorrhea (a medical condition associated with sudden cessation of menstruation for 6 months or more)
  • Hormonal disruptions and abnormal changes

Diagnosis

Celiac disease is usually diagnosed by its own set of underlying symptoms such as chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), iron-deficiency anemia, and such others. Additionally, the condition can be diagnosed if a person is having repeated miscarriages or inability to conceive for unidentified causes.

What can you do about it?

If you experience symptoms of Celiac disease, consult your doctor at the earliest and follow the treatments and preventative measures suggested. Additionally, you can also consult a dietician who will help you to move on to a low grain or no grain diet that would help you further to avoid the disease.
