Asked for male, 36 years old from Yamunanagar
Suffering from IBS problem since last more than 12 years. Consult many doctors and they did many tests like endoscopy, colonoscopy but all normal. I feel constipation and gas. Take about 45 mins while going for fresh. Go 2-3 times in day for fresh but have feelings to go more time also but due to time limitations I tolerate it. Gas problem is much much high. Whole day gas pass. If go for fresh then too much gas passed. Feel very shame if some relative come in our house or I go somewhere because big sounds of gas passing come while go to toilet.
Hi First of all I will advise you not to take stress as stress aggravates irritable bowel syndrome. It happens when our large intestine colon gets hypersensitive and overreacts to mild stimulation. First of all tell me do you feel pain too and exactly where and are stools hard or weak and secondly are you taking any other medications for anything else too. Now for gas and constipation do as follows:- Take Tab Pantocid 40 mg Od Half hour before breakfast Syp Looz 3tsf BD And do some diet and lifestyle modifications like ￼ ￼ CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS FIND A DOCTOR FIND LOWEST DRUG PRICES HEALTH A-Z DRUGS & SUPPLEMENTS LIVING HEALTHY FAMILY & PREGNANCY NEWS & EXPERTS MOBILE APPS SUBSCRIPTIONS SUBSCRIBE SUBSCRIBE Irritable Bowel Syndrome Guide Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS affects between 25 and 45 million Americans. Most of them are women. People are most likely to get the condition in their late teens to early 40s. IBS is a mix of belly discomfort or pain and trouble with bowel habits: either going more or less often than normal (diarrhea or constipation) or having a different kind of stool (thin, hard, or soft and liquid). It’s not life-threatening, and it doesn't make you more likely to get other colon conditions, such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, or colon cancer. But IBS can be a long-lasting problem that changes how you live your life. People with IBS may miss work or school more often, and they may feel less able to take part in daily activities. Some people may need to change their work setting: shifting to working at home, changing hours, or even not working at all. What Are the Symptoms of IBS? People with IBS have symptoms that can include: Diarrhea (often described as violent episodes of diarrhea) Constipation Constipation alternating with diarrhea Belly pains or cramps, usually in the lower half of the belly, that get worse after meals and feel better after a bowel movement A lot of gas or bloating Harder or looser stools than normal (pellets or flat ribbon stools) A belly that sticks out CONTINUE READING BELOW Stress can make symptoms worse. Some people also have urinary symptoms or sexual problems. There are four types of the condition. There is IBS with constipation (IBS-C) and IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D). Some people have an alternating pattern of constipation and diarrhea. This is called mixed IBS (IBS-M). Other people don’t fit into these categories easily, called unsubtyped IBS, or IBS-U. What Are the Causes? While there are several things known to trigger IBS symptoms, experts don't know what causes the condition. Studies suggest that the colon gets hypersensitive, overreacting to mild stimulation. Instead of slow, rhythmic muscle movements, the bowel muscles spasm. That can cause diarrhea or constipation. Some think that IBS happens when the muscles in the bowels don't squeeze normally, which affects the movement of stool. But studies don’t seem to back this up. Another theory suggests it may involve chemicals made by the body, such as serotonin and gastrin, that control nerve signals between the brain and digestive tract. CONTINUE READING BELOW Other researchers are studying to see if certain bacteria in the bowels can lead to the condition Because IBS happens in women much more often than in men, some believe hormones may play a role. So far, studies haven’t borne this out. How Is It Diagnosed? There are no specific lab tests that can diagnose IBS. Your doctor will see if your symptoms match with the definition of IBS, and he may run tests to rule out conditions such as: Food allergies or intolerances, such as lactose intolerance and poor dietary habits Medications such as high blood pressure drugs, iron, and certain antacids Infection Enzyme deficiencies where the pancreas isn't releasing enough enzymes to properly digest or break down food Inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease Your doctor may do some of the following tests to decide if you have IBS: Flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy to look for signs of blockage or inflammation in your intestines Upper endoscopy if you have heartburn or indigestion X-rays Blood tests to look for anemia (too few red blood cells), thyroid problems, and signs of infection Stool tests for blood or infections Tests for lactose intolerance, gluten allergy, or celiac disease Tests to look for problems with your bowel muscles CONTINUE READING BELOW How Is IBS Treated? Nearly all people with IBS can get help, but no single treatment works for everyone. You and your doctor will need to work together to find the right treatment plan to manage your symptoms. Many things can trigger IBS symptoms, including certain foods, medicines, the presence of gas or stool, and emotional stress. You’ll need to learn what your triggers are. You may need to make some lifestyle changes and take medication. Diet and Lifestyle Changes Usually, with a few basic changes in diet and activities, IBS will improve over time. Here are some tips to help reduce symptoms: Avoid caffeine (in coffee, teas, and sodas). Add more fiber with foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts. Drink at least three to four glasses of water per day. Don't smoke. Learn to relax, either by getting more exercise Limit how much milk or cheese you eat. Eat smaller meals more often instead of big meals.

Hello Eating healthy food and adding regular exercise to your daily routine is the best solution to keep your liver and kidney healthy. Garlic is indeed very good cleanser of toxins. Add turmeric powder to your food daily, avocados are also found to be beneficial. You must eat 2-3 avocados every weak, fruits like apple, grapes, oranges are also very good for this purpose. Drink plenty of water daily and take green tea too. And exercise is very essential too. Sitting for prolonged hours or having a sedentary lifestyle is a big drawback nowadays in work. Kindly follow a strict exercise like a walk for at least half an hour daily. Tc.
