Fatty liver is a disease where some enzyme which secreted from liver increased in blood. Soo there is fatty infiltration in the liver as well as in blood. All you need is to take fat free food, less spicy food. Plenty of fruits and green veg you can take. U need to check your liver function test. And by proper homeopathic treatment you can overcome this situation. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate in private conversation.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Following is what I would recommend for relief - (a)'amla churna' (patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, preferably before lunch for next 1 month. (b)'bael churna' (patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, post lunch daily for next 1 month. (c) ripe banana with a cup of cold milk twice daily (d) stay well hydrated, drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. (e) streamline diet and lifestyle, exercise for at least 30 minutes daily, and stay relaxed. (f) restrict flesh foods, and focus more on leafy greens and fresh fruits. Try avoiding sweets, sour and hot/ spicy foods, drinks, greasy, oily, high calorie food stuff including fast foods etc all. (g) ensure that you reduce unnecessary mental stress and strain that often is the cause of acidity leading to ulcers. Hope this helps. Let know if your problems persist still. Take care and all the very best.

Acid peptic disease has been found to be linked to one bacterial infection of the stomach lining in majority of patients. The germ is known as helecobacter pylori. Diagnosing this needs certain tests like urea breath test. Endoscopic sample of stomach lining to detect the bacteria etc. Which needs specialist care. Treatment is simple. Just a few days' medication will wipe off the infection.(a 10 days' course of. H. P. Kit which is available in the market as a combo- pack. To be taken under medical supervision) but there always remains a possibility of recurrence. Hence one has to be careful as explained under. The cause of your condition / recurrence of symptoms of acidity may be related to your dietary habit and stress and strains in daily life. If you care fond of spicy food. Avoid spices. If you are a smoker. Stop smoking. After observing certain such controls you will find some relief.

Increase intake of fiber, especially fruits and cooked vegetables. An Apple or Pineapple/Pomegranate each day is helpful.  Drink 7-8 glasses of water each day. Take daily morning and evening walks for at least 20-30 minutes each. Eat whole grains /nuts/sprouts and Muesli in breakfast Avoid refined foods like white flour, bread, pasta, pizza, white rice,or high protein foods like cheese,meat and cold foods like ice cream or chilled drinks  Take meals in a relaxed and calm atmosphere. The food should be warm and freshly -prepared, as cold food slows the digestive power. -Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach. -Lose weight; Extra fat places pressure on abdomen, pushing gastric juices up  -Do daily exercise.like walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position.

Good day lybrate-user. You have not mentioned your weight, whether you are married and had children. And poly cystic of what. Kidney or ovary. If it's ovary. You need treatment to reduce your pain and menstrual problems if you got any. And usually the treatment is life time or till your menstrual cycles stop. But if you have severe symptoms then you may need surgical intervention. If it's kidney. Then you need to regularly monitor your second normal kidney function and blood pressure. Keep your weight in control, do some regular exercise consult your physician regularly for further follow up and management.
