For last 7 months I am having hip/waist stiffness and feeling problem sitting and bending front. Along with blood was coming with stool and doctor said I had fissure. I lost weight also from earlier. Is there anything critical to it? As I heard this type of pain may arise due to tumour also. I am doing regular exercise/yoga for fitness but not getting it back.

If you have been diagnosed to have a fissure I presume you also might have been treated for that condition, regarding stiffness and and pain around your hips could be due to bad postures in sitting walking, or bad exercise techniques, if the above postures are not he cause, you nay be overweight, or there may be vit. D3 deficiency which should be treated. Pain due to anal fissure is not the cause of your pains as fissure pain is limited to your bottom area or perineum, if you entertain doubt of having a tumor you should be visiting a gastro enterologist who can diagnose after taking proper history and performing colonoscopy.

If your piles produce only mild discomfort, I may suggest over-the-counter creams, ointments, suppositories or pads based on your medical history. These products contain ingredients, that can relieve pain and itching, at least temporarily. Don't use an over-the-counter cream or other product for more than a week unless directed by doctor. These products can cause side effects, such as skin rash, inflammation and skin thinning. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Bec of acidity sometime have diarrhoea and constipation. Should I visit the doctor or wait. For any serious condition how many time blood should come in stools etc.

Blood in stool can be due to number of causes. If you had prior constipation then it could be due to piles. Avoid constipation in that case. Take plenty of fluids, fruits and fibre rich diet. Avoid spices, fried food, junk food and non-veg. Additional fibre like isafbgole 3tsf daily with a glass of water is beneficial. In case it doesn't help please have yourself examined by a surgeon/gastroenterologist. Thanks.

Walnuts Shields From Colon Cancer

Eating 28 grams of walnuts everyday may change gut bacteria in a way that suppresses colon cancer a new research has found by university of Connecticut Health centre in United States

Walnuts has the most poly unsaturated fatty acids of all the commonly eaten tree nuts as well as the highest ratio of Omega - 3 to Omega - 6 fatty acids and high levels of a form of Vitamin E with anti cancer properties

They found that walnut consumption tended to push the gut microbiome toward an ecology that was potentially protective against Cancer.

Get back here with liver function tests, cbc blood and blood sugar levels to know hb & general infections, thyroid profile and ultrasound abdomen. If she does not like milk, give her curd-a simple protein that can be digested & helps ibs. Lining of stomach has become weak due to indigestion, therefore not able to tolerate chillies. Do not give her chillies. Hiowna powder by himalaya is a powder supplement having powder milk plus other nutrients. 2 tbs twice daily. Get baqck here with reports. Do deworming by giving her a tablet of bandy plus after some soft food. Once you send reports, more guidance will be given regarding food.
