Please send complete reports including ct scans, usg etc. Does he have pain? diabetes due to chronic pancreatitis needs to be tackled very seriously as sugar level fluctuates quite often and chances of decreasing blood sugar is also high if diabetes is corrected too aggressively.

Take medicines for a while. Get a repeat usg about 2 months later. If gall stones persists. Then plan to go for surgery when your child is about 6 months old.

After passing my stool I feel giddiness and I also have rectal ulcer if I hold urine I get pain in my anal area. What should i do to cure?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Your symptoms of giddiness after passing stool can be related to postural hypotention, for which you need to consult a physician, regarding rectal ulcer you are talking is not acceptable as it is not backed by doctors confirmation after proctoscopy if so you should have mentioned. You seem to be assuming you have an ulcer in view of pain. My suggestion is to see a urologist, get your urine analysed and get a culture sensitivity of urine, stop practicing of withholding urine for long as you may develop other problems like epididimo-orchitis etc. You may also have prostatic problems like passing of jelly like white fluid while straining at stool from your penis, this condition is called prostatitis which can cause pain in anal area to be precise in perineal area. Therefore you should visit a urologist.

Dear lybrate user, good noon. Better take food on proper time. Avoid taking water before meals. Go to bed early. Avoid spicy foods, do not take milk and milk products in excess. You can take rojamoggu lehyam- made of rose petals which will clear your acidity related problems. Also take eladi churnam along with that lehyam-. All the best.

Hi sir, I am 42 years old, daily gas trouble please rectify my problem.

DNB GASTROENTEROLOGY
Gastroenterologist,
Hi sir, I am 42 years old, daily gas trouble please rectify my problem.
Step 1: avoid foods known to cause gas one way to manage flatulence and belching is to eat fewer of the well-known gassy foods. Common culprits include: certain fruits, like apples and pears; vegetables including broccoli, brussels sprouts, and onions; whole grains such as bran; and dairy products like milk, cheese, and ice cream. These items contain fiber, sugars, and starches that don't digest or absorb easily, eventually causing intestinal gas. Foods containing sorbitol, a naturally occurring sugar found in fruit, are on some people? s gassy-foods list. Others are bothered by carbonated soft drinks and fruit drinks. If you discover that these foods are causing you excess gas, eliminate them from your diet or eat them in small portions? if you find you? re gassy after eating a certain food, eliminate it from your diet and see if it helps" he says. Step 2: try these ways to minimize gas 1. Eat and drink slowly. When you eat or drink fast, you can swallow a lot of air, which can cause gas, says bickston. 2 .Digestive enzymes -may help depending on cause 3. Habits like smoking, chewing gum, and drinking through a straw may cause your stomach to fill with air, leading to gas. 4. Avoid artificial sweeteners. Sorbitol and related sugar alcohols used in many sugar-free versions of foods. When gas is a symptom of something else if your excessive gas is persistent or severe, consult doctor? it could be a sign of a more serious digestive condition, such as lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest lactose, the sugar found in milk and milk products irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) colon cancer upper gastrointestinal disorders. These include peptic ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd), or gastroparesis, also called delayed gastric emptying. I want to know your symptoms in detail, consult me.

Causes, Types and Symptoms of Crohn's Disease

FELLOWSHIP IN ADVANCED LIVER SURGERY AND LIVER TRANSPLANTATION, FELLOWSHIP IN HEPATOBILIARY AND LIVER TRANSPLANT SURGERY, MASTER OF SURGERY, MBBS
Gastroenterologist, Ahmedabad
Causes, Types and Symptoms of Crohn's Disease

One of the most severe illnesses included in the larger group of diseases, is known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Crohn's disease is typically a long-lasting, chronic condition. The intestine or bowel, most commonly the colon and the lower part of the small intestine, are either marked by sores or get inflamed and ulcerated. It is a common occurrence in adolescents and in young adults. 

Types : Crohn's disease is subdivided into five types, each having its own set of symptoms:

  1. Ileocolitis: The most common type, it affects the colon and the ileum and results in considerable weight loss as well as diarrhea and cramps.
  2. Gastroduodenal Crohn's disease: People who suffer from this type of disease have their stomach and duodenum affected and many experience symptoms like nausea, loss of appetite and weight loss.
  3. Crohn's Colitis: This involves only the stomach, and can cause joint pains, rectal bleeding, skin lesions and diarrheas. 
  4. Ileitis: This type of Crohn's disease affects the ileum and the symptoms are identical to those of ileocolitis.
  5. Jejunoileitis: In this type, the jejunum gets affected and general symptoms include the formation of fistulas, diarrhea, intensive back pain as well as areas of inflammation.

Causes: Although there are many theories about what causes Crohn's disease, none of them have been proven. However, there have been a few possible causes which have been identified. These include:

  1. Immune system problems
  2. Genetic disorders
  3. Environmental factors, such as: a) Certain edibles, b) Viruses or harmful bacteria, c) Smoke.

Symptoms: The primary symptoms of Crohn's disease include the following:

  1. Diarrhea: Diarrhea is a common problem for people with Crohn's disease and can occur for about 10 to 20 times a day in severe cases.
  2. Blood in your stool: In rare cases, you might notice blood in the toilet bowl or darker blood mixed with your stool.
  3. Fever and fatigue: In more intense cases, you may develop a fever. You may also feel tired or have low energy.
  4. Abdominal pain and cramping: You may experience anything from slight discomfort to severe cramping and intermittent belly pain, including nausea and vomiting.
  5. Anemia: Due to a reduction in iron level caused by bloody stools a person can turn anemic.
  6. Reduced appetite and weight loss: Abdominal pain and cramping can affect both your appetite and your ability to digest food, which leads to severe weight loss.
  7. Perianal disease: Erratic appearance of small tears in the anus are called anal fissures.
