Kidney stones may pass in urine as the size is small. But Gall bladder stones will not naturally subside. The treatment for symptomatic Gall bladder stones is surgery i.e. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. As you are diabetic it's better to treat the diseases early.

Dear Lybrate USer, * To combat extra acid in your stomach baking soda is an effective and a commonly available antacid. The basic nature of soda neutralizes the excess hydrochloric acid in the stomach forming salt and water. Mix half teaspoon of baking soda in half a glass of water and drink the solution on an empty stomach. It will get you fast relief from gas and indigestion. *During the condition of lack of hydrochloric acid in our stomach black pepper can be very effective to cure the problem. Black pepper can increase the flow of gastric juices and thus help in digestion. Powdered black pepper with crushed jaggery can be taken along buttermilk during indigestion. Or a fine powder of black pepper, dried mint leaves, ginger powder and coriander seeds, all taken in equal amounts, can be consumed twice a day (one teaspoon) to treat gas and indigestion. *Drink warm water. *Avoid more spicy, maida related, dry, junk foods.

Doctor I am getting pain in my anal part when I passes stool in the morning. And there is a little part coming there as such I don't get any blood from there. There is a difficulty sitting. I used to apply coconut oil frequently so that I may not get pain. For that I also avoid to the extent possible outside food. Please suggest what to do and get out of it.

Physiotherapist, Pune
Hello lybrate-user your problem is completely related with your diet and lifestyle well I am suggesting some diet instructions related with your problem 1) you should have lots of water every day at least 3 L water so you will have less chances to get Constitution and hard stool so won't feel pain while passing stool 2) 2-3 spoon of ghee everyday 3) black raiseins (soak in water and have in morning) 4) citrus fruits like orange, lemon, grap fruit vit c is important for immunity try to have whole fruit 5) green leafy vegetables 6) avoid Frozen food, bakery items 7) eat some warm and fresh food.

Pl. Give me a permanent remedy for ULCERATIVE COLITIS for which Iam taking MESACOL 400 MG FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is a remitting and relapsing disease and the medication like Mesacol is the only remedy If your symptoms are severe, you will need to be hospitalized to correct the effects of dehydration and malnutrition that diarrhea causes. Surgery is necessary when there is massive bleeding, chronic and debilitating symptoms, perforation of your colon, or if there is a risk of cancer. A barium enema and a colonoscopy can detect these serious problems. Surgical options include proctocolectomy with ileostomy (the most common surgical treatment) and ileoanal anastomosis.

In digestion, acidity often results from dietary errors, a lack of dietary enzymes or an imbalance in the basic nutrients. The results range from belching, acid stomachs, heartburn and flatulence to bloating and gas, strained digestion and fatigue. SOME OF HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES Natrum phos, the acidity cell salt, is the star here as its source is key to breaking down stomach acid and other acids throughout the body. Natrum sulph, the fluid balancing cell salt, helps reduce bloating and gas, water build-up and other symptoms related to digestion and fluids. Silica, a strengthening cell salt, eases sluggish digestion, constipation, flatulence

I have facing heart burn problem from 1-2 yrs back. After taking food when I drink water after some time it has came out with small part of foods. It is happening some times 2 or 3 times in a day. The water is feeling acid taste. When I take pantroprazole in empty stomach I feel good for the day. But same problem persist again. What should I do?

Here are tips to prevent heartburn. -Relax and eat food slowly;Take time to eat- don't rush. Avoid skipping breakfast. - Eat smaller meals;Don't overeat  -Limit fluids intake during meals. As it increases stomach distension.  -Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol) -Stop smoking. & Avoid alcohol;Stress may increase stomach acids -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. -Review the medications;that cause acidity: like pain relievers/ antibiotics/Iron tablets HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food  -Juices-Citrus drinks such as orange, tomato juice ,grapefruit, and pineapple juice are very acidic and can cause acid reflux. Other juices like apple,carrot,aloe vera,-are less acidic and thus safe..  -TREATMENT: -Antacids: for mild symptoms, like SUCRAMAL/DIGENE/Mucaine gel, may give relief.  -For severe cases,tablet Pantocid –DSR/Sompraz-D/Rabicip-D.These are taken once/twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach.
