After eating my stomach bloat very much please tell me treatment ?

Post Doctoral Fellowship in G I Surgery, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon,
Modify your life style to reduce stress, reduce intake of coffee and tea, stop smoking and alcohol. Take Tab Pantocid regularly once a day for 15 days. If it still does not go away get an upper G I Endoscopy done. Weight can be reduced by a regular exercise (walking for an hour every day) and cutting down on sugar, carbohydrates, like cereals and potatoes and increase in salads and fruits.

Good to know that your reports for heart are normal, blood sugar pp levels are under control. Keep it up reduce anxiety. Change food habits so that there is no need to take ppi s group for acidity (lots of side effects are reported over long term use) drink some warm liquid every 2 hours so that acid in stomach is washed away, does not get chance to get collected. You can take warm water with lemon and honey (calories? cut it in other items) warm clear soup. Green tea with lemon coconut water-fresh. Ginger tea. Dry toast absorbs acid too but look into calories and make adjustments. Good luck.

What is fatty liver?

Fatty liver, or steatosis, is a term that describes the build-up of excess fat in the liver. While it's normal to have some fat in your liver for its regular functioning when fat makes up at least 5% of the liver its termed as fatty liver. Fatty liver can be a completely benign (Not harmful) condition and usually does not lead to liver damage. However, once there is a build-up of simple fat, the liver becomes vulnerable to further injury, which may result in inflammation and scarring of the liver.

Causes of fatty liver include:
Alcoholism- Most common cause
Obesity
hyperlipidemia, or high levels of fats in the blood
Diabetes
Genetic inheritance
Rapid weight loss
Side effect of certain medications, including aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, and tetracycline.

Treatment:
There isn't a medication or surgery to treat fatty liver. Lifestyle modifications like-
Limiting or avoiding alcoholic beverages
Managing your cholesterol
Losing weight
Controlling your blood sugar
Avoiding high amount of fatty and sugary foods
Dietary modification-Increasing fiber like fruits and vegetables, Whole grain cereals, sprouts
Exercising- 45-60 minutes at least 4-5 days/week

Fatty liver is due to deposition of fat cells in liver. It is nothing to do with swelling of the muscle.

My daughter is just only 5 and a half month old. She is having a blood in her motions. Want to know, why its happening? It is dangerous or it is normal?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Acute anal fissures are known to occur in children, consult a pediatrician for dietary changes and give her plenty of oral fluids, she should be fine. If bleeding is present with out history of constipation and or she is passing normal soft stool, she should be evaluated by a pediatrician to rule out medical conditions or by a gastroenterologist for examination of lower gastrointestinal tract. She can have the correct treatment only when she has an exact diagnosis.

Take equal parts of ground ginger, fennel, and cardamom. Mix them thoroughly. Now, take a cup of water. Add one teaspoon of this mixture and a pinch of asafetida (hing) in it. Drink this once or twice a day. Alternatively, you can consume a little ginger juice mixed with a pinch of asafetida. To prevent gas from forming, chew a fresh piece of ginger regularly after meals. You can also add small amounts of dried or fresh ginger to your food. Drinking ginger tea can help control the formation of gas in the stomach. Boil one tablespoon of ground ginger in water for a few minutes. Drink this tea two or three times a day. Another option is to add a few drops of ginger essential oil to any kind of base oil and rub it on your stomach.
