HI, My uncle took Fecal Calprotectin stool test (method: Fluoroenzyme Immunoassay) whose results came 156.0 mg/kg but normal range is less than 50. Can anyone please suggest what should be the next course of action now? Also please elaborate about any complications that may occur.

HI, My uncle took Fecal Calprotectin stool test (method: Fluoroenzyme Immunoassay) whose results came 156.0 mg/kg but...
Faecal calprotectin testing is recommended by NICE as an option to help doctors distinguish between inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and non-inflammatory bowel diseases, such as irritable bowel syndrome. Faecal calprotectin is a substance that is released into the intestines in excess when there is any inflammation there. Its presence can mean a person has an inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. These conditions can cause very similar symptoms to irritable bowel syndrome. But, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis can also cause symptoms serious enough for major surgery to be needed, so it’s important to distinguish between them and irritable bowel syndrome.

Gut Flora - All About It!

General Physician, Gorakhpur
Gut Flora - All About It!
While we have all been bombarded through the various sources on the internet, print and media about the beneficial effects of various healthy diets, have you ever stopped to think about how or why this might be the case. Is this because of a direct effect of the components of the diet on the various body functions. It turns out that some of this may be mediated by the effects of diet on the various residents in our gut, also known as our gut flora.
So, who are these residents in our gut?

What is gut flora?
Gut flora, also known as gastrointestinal flora, are the various microbes in our bodies (microbiome). They number more than 10 times the number of cells in the human body, up to 100 trillion cells. They also encode 100 times the number of genes (the metagenome) that a human possesses (the genome). In the human gut microbiome, while over 99% of the genes are bacterial, there are also fungi and viruses.

How does diet impact the gut flora?
The phrase you are what you eat should perhaps be now modified to your microbiome is what you eat . More than one study has shown that a western diet rich in protein and animal fat is associated with a predominance of a bacterial species named Bacteroides while those on a more agrarian diet richer in carbohydrates tend to show a predominance of a bacterial species named prevotella.

Why does flora matter?
It is postulated that the various components of the microbiome tend to be in a state of balance in a healthy individual. When this balance gets disturbed, this has been termed as dysbiosis . This dysbiosis is usually associated with many diseases of the modern age including obesity, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and cardiovascular diseases.

While studies have started showing the differences in microbiome with the various dietary components, it is still early to suggest that changing one s diet alone would be the only way to change towards less dysbiosis . This is because we still do not have an agreement on what is truly a healthy microbiome . Additionally, recent studies have also shown that the immediate environment that one resides in may impact the microbiome with changes seen soon after immigration to a western country. That said, it would make sense to adopt a healthier diet that is lower in animal fat and more grain-based sources of proteins while research evolves towards more specific answers in the years and decades to come.

Homeopathic Approach For Anal Fissure!

Homeopathic Approach For Anal Fissure!
An anal fissure is a small tear in the thin, moist tissue (mucosa) that lines the anus. An anal fissure may occur when you pass hard or large stools during a bowel movement. Anal fissures typically cause pain and bleeding with bowel movements. You also may experience spasms in the ring of muscle at the end of your anus (anal sphincter).

Anal fissures are very common in young infants but can affect people of any age. Most anal fissures get better with simple treatments, such as increased fiber intake or sitz baths.


Common causes of anal fissure include:

Passing large or hard stools

Constipation and straining during bowel movements

Chronic diarrhea

Inflammation of the anorectal area, caused by Crohn's disease or another inflammatory bowel disease


Less common causes of anal fissures include:

Anal cancer






Signs and symptoms of an anal fissure include:

Pain, sometimes severe, during bowel movements

Pain after bowel movements that can last up to several hours

Bright red blood on the stool or toilet paper after a bowel movement

Itching or irritation around the anus

A visible crack in the skin around the anus

A small lump or skin tag on the skin near the anal fissure

Risk factors

Factors that may increase your risk of developing an anal fissure include:

Infancy. Many infants experience an anal fissure during their first year of life; experts aren't sure why.

Aging. Older adults may develop an anal fissure partly due to slowed circulation, resulting in decreased blood flow to the rectal area.

Constipation. Straining during bowel movements and passing hard stools increase the risk of tearing.

Childbirth. Anal fissures are more common in women after they give birth.

Crohn's disease. This inflammatory bowel disease causes chronic inflammation of the intestinal tract, which may make the lining of the anal canal more vulnerable to tearing.

Anal intercourse.


Complications of anal fissure can include:

Failure to heal. An anal fissure that fails to heal within six weeks is considered chronic and may need further treatment.

Recurrence. Once you've experienced an anal fissure, you are prone to having another one.

A tear that extends to surrounding muscles. An anal fissure may extend into the ring of muscle that holds your anus closed (internal anal sphincter), making it more difficult for your anal fissure to heal. An unhealed fissure can trigger a cycle of discomfort that may require medications or surgery to reduce the pain and to repair or remove the fissure.

दोस्तों आज की भागदौड़ भरी जिंदगी में लोगों की जीवनशैली कुछ ऐसी हो गयी है की लोगो को बवासीर से ज्यादा फिशर हो रहा है,

फिशर अक्सर तब होता है, जब आप मल त्याग के दौरान कठोर और बड़े आकार का मल निकालते हैं। फिशर के कारण आमतौर पर मल त्याग करने के दौरान दर्द होना और मल के साथ में खून भी आता है।

फिशर के दौरान आपको अपनी गुदा के अंत में मांसपेशियों में ऐंठन महसूस हो सकती है। फिशर छोटे बच्चों में काफी सामान्य स्थिति होती है, लेकिन यह किसी भी उम्र में हो सकता है।

फिशर के सामान्य तौर पर दो प्रकार होते हैं:
तीव्र (acute) त्वचा की ऊपरी सतह पर छेद या दरार को एक्यूट फिशर कहा जाता है।
दीर्घकालिक (chronic) - अगर त्वचा की सतह पर हुआ छेद या दरार ठीक ना हो पाए, तो समय के साथ-साथ क्रॉनिक फिशर विकसित होने लगता है।

गुदा में फिशर के लक्षण व संकेतों में निम्न शामिल हो सकते हैं:

मल त्याग के दौरान दर्द, कभी-कभी गंभीर दर्द होना।
मल त्याग करने के बाद दर्द होना जो कई घंटों तक रह सकता है।
मल त्याग के बाद मल पर गहरा लाल रंग दिखाई देना।
गुदा के आसपास खुजली या जलन होना।
गुदा के चारों ओर की त्वचा में एक दरार दिखाई देना।
गुदा फिशर के पास त्वचा पर गांठ या स्किन टैग दिखाई देना।

फिशर के अन्य संभावित कारणों में निम्न शामिल हो सकते हैं:

लगातार डायरिया (दस्त) रहना।
इंफ्लेमेटरी बाउल डिजीज (ibd), जैसे क्रोहन रोग, अल्सरेटिव कोलाइटिस।
लंबे समय तक कब्ज रहना।
कभी-कभी यौन संचारित संक्रमण (sti), जैसे कि सिफिलिस या हर्पीस, जो गुदा व गुदा नलिका को संक्रमित और नुकसान पहुंचा सकते हैं।
एनल स्फिंक्टर की मांसपेशियां असामान्य रूप से टाइट होना, जो आपकी गुदा नलिका में तनाव बढ़ा सकती हैं। जो आपको एनल फिशर के लिए अतिसंवेदनशील बनाता है।

एनल फिशर से बचाव

आप कब्ज की रोकथाम करके एनल फिशर विकसित होने के जोखिमों को कम कर सकते हैं। अगर पहले कभी आपको फिशर की समस्या हुई है, तो कब्ज की रोकथाम करना बहुत जरूरी है।

आप निम्न की मदद से कब्ज की रोकथाम कर सकते हैं:

एक संतुलित आहार खाएं, जिसमें अच्छी मात्रा में फाइबर, फल और सब्जियां शामिल होती हैं।
पर्याप्त मात्रा में तरल पदार्थ पीएं। नियमित रूप से व्यायाम करते रहें।
यह महत्वपूर्ण है कि आप मल त्याग करने के बाद अपने गुदा को धीरे-धीरे पोंछें।
जब शौचालय जाने की इच्छा महसूस हो तो उसे अनदेखा नहीं करना चाहिए। क्योंकि आंतों को खाली ना करना बाद में कब्ज का कारण बन सकता है। ऐसा इसलिए होता है, क्योंकि आंतों में जमा होने वाला मल कठोर बन जाता है, जो गुदा के अंदर से गुजरने के दौरान दर्द व गुदा में दरार (खरोंच) पैदा कर कर सकता है।
टॉयलेट में अधिक देर तक ना बैठें और अधिक जोर ना लगाएं। ऐसा करने से गुदा नलिका में दबाव बढ़ता है। अगर आपको कोई अन्य स्वास्थ्य संबंधी समस्या है, जो फिशर होने के जोखिम को बढ़ाती है, तो इस बारे में डॉक्टर को बताएं। वे आपसे इस बारे में बात करेंगे कि इस स्थिति को कैसे मैनेज करना है और एनल फिशर होने के जोखिमों को कैसे कम करना है।

फिशर का परीक्षण कैसे किया जाता है?

डॉक्टर आमतौर पर गुदा के आस-पास के क्षेत्र की जांच करके फिशर का परीक्षण कर सकते हैं। लेकिन वे परीक्षण की पुष्टी करने के लिए गुदा का भी परीक्षण कर सकते हैं। परीक्षण के दौरान डॉक्टर मरीज की गुदा में एंडोस्कोप (endoscope) डालते हैं, जिससे वे दरार को आसानी से देख पाते हैं। एंडोस्कोप एक मेडिकल उपकरण होता है, यह एक पतली ट्यूब होती है जिसकी मदद से डॉक्टर गुदा नलिका की जांच करते हैं। एंडोस्कोप के प्रयोग की मदद से डॉक्टर गुदा व गुदा नलिका से जुड़ी अन्य बीमारियों का पता भी लगा सकते हैं, जैसे बवासीर।

अनल फिशर के लिए नवीनतम आधुनिक उपचार
लेटरल इंटरनल स्फिंक्टरोटॉमी anal fissure का नया आधुनिक उपचार है, इसमें पेशेंट मात्र 7 से 15 दिन में बिलकुल ठीक हो जाता है साथ में anal dilatation करना होता है ताकि गुदा की मासपेशिया नरम मुलायम बने और गुदा की चिकनाहट बड़े,
