Dear Sir refer my question last I donot have DM till. If I get pancreatitis I am getting DM due to not entering the insulin in to the stream due to blockage of duct while in pancreatitis attacks. Unless and otherwise my FBS will be 95 to 110 for a long time. What ever may be for the ILD as per the instruction of my pulmonologist I started pilfenex and omnacortil treatment from last week. My question is this sir is there any proven treatment in allopathy for this chronic calcific pancreatitis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis except the symptomatic treatment on its attack the medical world wants to take the problem as very serious and money making should not be the primary aim of doctors and hospitals like our ancestors charaka and sustrutha chakrapani agasthya chyavana has done life for the human and life for the society we expect at least 50% of that from the modern medicine. What is your views and opinion I dont know. Then also it should be like that.

IPF was not seen in ancient times because of the pure air at that time but you might have contracted this disease may be due to your work or any other factors and if money is a problem for you than you can always opt to take treatment under government hospitals and I will suggest you to understand your disease and hence we are recommending you symptomatic treatment and there is research going on for complete cure with stem cell therapy or with transplant

While doing potty sometimes blood comes out. Suggest me some medicine to cure this.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
If blood is bright red it may be due to lower gi bleeding (piles, fissures, fistula) but if dark it may be due to upper gi (ulcerative colitis, intestinal ulcers, etc) related so first I advice you to visit a general surgeon and diagnose the disease but for treatment you can take homoeopathic treatment cause it eradicates disease from root.

It would be easy to read that and think, ?So it?s the people that don?t follow a strict gluten-free diet that don?t heal.? But to be honest, I don?t think they said it as strongly as they should have. Here?s a recent study that paints a much darker picture of the Gluten-Free Diet?s success rate.

Triffla, Isabgol having no effect. Give me ALLOPATHIC Solutions only for Bowel regularity, sound & satisfied sleep. HOPE I will get AUTHENTIC, PRACTICAL & REAL Solution.

Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Doctor of Medicine
General Physician,
Seems like you live a very healthy lifestyle. But 91 kgs for 5'1 is over weight. If that's all muscle then I should assume you are on lots of protein rich diet. Which if is true then possible lots of protein in diet could be causing you bloating sensation thus the heaviness and urge to pass stools. If all of it wrong then you need to describe your irregular bowel habits in detail for specific treatment. Feel free to get back for the same. Wish you good luck. Take care.

If there is any history of injury it could be due to fracture rib and you have to take xray chest to exclude fracture. If no history of injury,it could be due to myalgia chest. Take one tablet of paracetamol 500mg sos after food maximum upto three tablets a day,apply volini gel and give hot compression locally.Drink plenty of water.If no relief,consult for further advice.
