Just as your overall health will benefit from eating a balanced diet, so too should the health of your hair. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so don’t put foods in your body that speed up hair loss. You may be experiencing a thinning on top already, but you can counteract this (or at least slow it down) by eating from every food group daily -- concentrating on foods that are rich in protein, iron, silica, and zinc.

Please suggest me some tips for improve digest to gain a weight.

Post Graduate Diploma In Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Please suggest me some tips for improve digest to gain a weight.
Its not just about improving digestion. Gaining weight is often more difficult and time consuming than weight loss. Often one ends up with wrong food choices when it comes to weight gain thinking we just have to eat to gain weight. But many times it does not help gain weight and one can succumb to other disorders of the body because of faulty eating. A personalised weight gain diet plan works wonders and helps one gain weight/muscle without gaining unwanted fats. Pls feel free to connect with me privately for diet consultation.

Fatty liver is abnormal deposition of fat in liver. Nafl for long duration may create major issues for the person. Rule out cardiac problem as a cause of breathlessness. Feeling of stomach fullness could be because of either swollen lining of the stomach or other organ compressing the stomach. Consult surgeon, gastroenterologist or hepatologist whomsoever you have access to and get further evaluated.

Observe the following to improve your digestive system---*Diet –Avoid fried, spicy and sour foods. *Maintain food timings-neither stomach should be empty nor heavy, frequent small helpings may be ok. *Prefer – whole grains, milk, curd, greens, fruits and such items which suit you. *Have timely and adequate sleep. *.Drinking lots of water is good .*Be relaxed and avoid tension *.Daily jogging or such exercise to ensure good blood circulation which helps digestion, dissipation of gases and nutrients reaching the body *Increased blood circulation, in turn, takes away toxins from the system making you more active agile and fit. Digestive disorder and flatulence bloats your abdomen causing pressure on other adjacent organs. Homoeopathy has good treatment for digestive problems without causing adverse effects. To start with, take Nux vomica 200 in the morning and in the evening for 6 days and give feedback.

I have a query on Gall Bladder stones. My mother is suffering from pains dues to gall bladder stones. I want to check what is the best option for treatment. Is there a way to treat it without removing the gall bladder. Reports say there are 8-11 small stones clustered in the gall bladder.

FELLOWSHIP IN ADVANCED LIVER SURGERY AND LIVER TRANSPLANTATION, FELLOWSHIP IN HEPATOBILIARY AND LIVER TRANSPLANT SURGERY, MASTER OF SURGERY, MBBS
Gastroenterologist, Ahmedabad
If your mother is having stone. Only option is removal of gall bladder. Which does not affect the health as gall bladder is just an storage organ. Liver will take care of its function. So no problem with that. If there was no pain then surgery can be avoided but if there is pain surgery and removal of gall bladder is the only option. Gall bladder stones forms due to defect in gall bladder unlike kidney stones.So for gall stones removal of gall bladder is necessary other wise stones are formed again.

Treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. I have been treated with laxatives and anti depressants but could not get relief. Suffering for 4 years.

PGDHHM, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Irritable bowel syndrome treatments include diet and lifestyle changes and medications. Some foods can worsen ibs -related constipation. It seems you too have constipation. I will suggest you to- avoid triggers of constipation eg-bread, coffee, chips, carbonated drinks, alcohol, chick pea flour, soda containing foods. Eat small meals. Don'tt overeat. Avoid stress and anxiety. Live active life, exercise/yoga daily. Keep your self busy. Take cap vizylac 1 daily after meal. Some people with ibs have symptoms similar to lactose intolerance with excess gas. Avoid food that produces excess gas. Hope this helps you.

Gastrointestinal Perforation - 8 Diseases that Can Cause it

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Surgical Gastroenterology/G.I. Surgery, Fellowship in Hepatobiliary Surgery & Liver Transplantation, International Visiting Scholar
Gastroenterologist, Hyderabad
Gastrointestinal Perforation - 8 Diseases that Can Cause it

When a hole develops in the wall of the gallbladder, rectum, large bowel, small intestine, stomach or oesophagus, it is called gastrointestinal perforation. It is a medical emergency that needs urgent medical attention.

Symptoms of gastrointestinal perforation (GP) usually include
1. Serious stomach pain
2. Chills
3. Fever
4. Nausea
5. Vomiting

Peritonitis (abdominal cavity lining inflammation) can also accompany the abovementioned condition. So in addition to the above symptoms, you may also experience peritonitis symptoms such as:
1. Fatigue
2. Passing less gas, urine or stools
3. Breathing difficulties
4. Fast heartbeats
5. Dizziness

Certain diseases can cause Gastro-intestinal perforation, such as:
1. Appendicitis
2. Diverticulitis (A type of digestive disorder)
3. Stomach ulcer
4. Gallstones
5. Gallbladder infection
6. Inflammatory bowel diseases (inflammation in the small intestine and the colon)
7. Swollen Meckel’s diverticulum (abnormal bulging of the small intestine at birth)
8. Gastrointestinal tract cancer

Besides diseases, the following conditions can also lead to Gastro-intestinal perforation:
1. Blunt abdominal trauma
2. Gunshot or knife wound to the abdomen
3. Abdominal surgery
4. Stomach ulcers caused by excessive consumption of steroids, anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin
5. Ingestion of caustic substances or foreign objects
Other than these, drinking alcohol, smoking and bowel injuries (caused by colonoscopy or endoscopy) can lead to GP as well.

Treatment options available
This condition is mostly treated with surgery. The goal of the surgery is to repair the anatomical problem and cause of peritonitis, along with removal of any foreign object in the abdominal socket, such as food, faeces and bile. However, if your doctor deems surgery unnecessary (in instances where the hole closes voluntarily) you will be only given antibiotics.
In some cases, a section of the intestine might need to be removed. An ileostomy or colostomy is performed where a portion of the large or small intestine is removed, which grants intestinal contents to empty or drain into a bag implanted on the wall of your abdomen.

The complications include:
1. Bleeding
2. Sepsis (Critical and fatal bacterial infection)
3. Belly ulcers
4. Wound infection
5. Bowel infarction (impaired supply of blood to the bowels)
6. Permanent colostomy or ileostomy 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
