1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day.

Blood in stools may be due to local reasons in ano rectal region too. If acidity (and ulcer?) are there, it may have blood through ulcer too but that would not be bright red. Fats deposits are not due to this. Stretch marks might have taken place in skin. For ayurveda treatment please write back full medical history, current situation, any reports or treatment taken.

I need help to understand what might be the possible cause of frequent diarrhea that my father has. He is 75 years old and has high BP from last 10-15 years. He has a pacemaker implant (in 2011) and 2 stents (in 2013) for his heart related issues. He also has light bronchial asthma from last many years and recently Alzheimers. He is on medication for all the above ailments and is quite stable with active lifestyle. He also does regular yoga morning and evening. He is teetotaller, vegetarian and his diet comprises food with very low oil. The problem is that from last 2 years he gets sudden diarrhea, with high fever and loss of body fluids. We need to admit him to a nearby clinic for glucose and antibiotic drips and he recovers in 2-3 days and gets discharged. Blood tests and stool tests during his stay at the clinics have not revealed anything serious and he gets well with regular antibiotics such as Metronidazole or Ornof. In 2012, this happened once in about 4-5 months. Now the frequency has increased and he gets these loose motions every 2-3 months. The increasing frequency of this symptom is worrying us and we need to know if there is any deeper cause for this. What kind of investigations do we need to do and what kind of treatment will help. thanks in advance.

Ways to Treat Stomach Ulcers

MBBS, DNB - Internal Medicine, DNB - Gastroenterology

Ways to Treat Stomach Ulcers

A stomach ulcer or gastric ulcer refers to the defects or breakdown in the mucosal lining in the stomach. The stomach contains acid, which helps in digestion and any break in the tissue lining may result in severe pain or bleeding in some cases. The pain is usually felt in the abdomen. Also, check out Stomach Aches and Pains in Kids.

Stomach ulcers cause great discomfort and should be treated effectively. Here are the primary ways for treating stomach ulcers:

  1. Antibiotics: In the case of H. pylori infection, you should take a course of more than two antibiotics, to be taken twice a day and must be continued for a week. Antibiotics such as amoxicillin, clarithromycin or metronidazole may be used in case of such stomach ulcers. However it is always recommended to consult a specialized doctor before consuming any of these medicines. After several weeks of using the antibiotics, you should get a test done for detection of H. pylori bacteria. If they are still present, you have to take different antibiotics.

  2. Proton Pump Inhibitors: Proton pump inhibitors or PPIs helps in the reduction of the amount of acid produced by the stomach. This prevents damage to the ulcer and lets it heal naturally. PPIs are generally taken for four to eight weeks. The most common PPIs which are used for treating stomach ulcers are omeprazole, pantoprazole and lansoprazole.

  3. H2 Receptor Antagonists: H2 receptor antagonists reduce the production of stomach acid and function the same as PPIs. The most common H2 receptor for treating stomach ulcers is ranitidine. Consult a doctor for all stomach related problems.

  4. Antacids/ Alginate: All measures to treat stomach ulcers take several hours to show results. Your doctor may prescribe antacid medications for neutralizing the stomach acid. This will provide relief for the moment, but the relief is quite temporary and for a short span of time. By this time, the strong medicines most likely start working. There is a certain antacid medicine known as alginate. This develops a protective coating on the stomach lining. Antacids are available at all over the counter medicine stores and you should consult your doctor to get the best antacid which would work effectively on your stomach ulcer symptoms. You should take antacids before going to sleep or after taking meals.

  5. Natural Remedies: Stomach ulcer can also be treated at home using natural remedies. Medicines may sometimes cause further digestive complications, so home remedies are much more easy to follow and do not have side effects. The best way is to follow a proper diet, which is comprised of certain food items that help in curing stomach ulcers. You should consume bananas, honey, garlic, green leafy vegetables like cabbage, licorice and capsaicin.

Stomach ulcers cause great pain and also bleeding in several cases. Proper treatment procedures should be taken in case of stomach ulcer. There are many medical remedies, as well as home remedies for treating stomach ulcers.

I am suffering from stomach ache and white worms in my stool what should I do I can not bear the pain.
Hello, worm infestation of the intestine is a very common problem in our country. It can lead to multiple problems like persistent abdominal pain, anemia etc. You can go for a deworming therapy (medicine and dose can be prescribed by your primary physician). You can get a stool for ova-parasite-cyst done (if not already done). Get a blood for complete hemogram done as chronic worm infestation can lead to anemia. Abdominal pain may/may not be related to the worms. Persistent pain may warrant the need of an ultrasonography of the abdomen. Antispasmodics may help but should be taken strictly under a physician's supervision.

It is a common disease mostly related to infection by water or food but usually resolves within a week. It is very simple to treat diarrhea, using simple remedies; 1. Drink a lot of homemade fluids i.e. buttermilk, lemon water, lassi, coconut water, fruit juice, plain water, etc. 2. Avoid tea, coffee, and cold drinks. 3. Do not leave food, continue usual amounts, you may include banana, rice etc. 4. Drink ORS solution as recommended (1 packet in 1 litre water), 1 glass water after each episode of diarrhea or whenever you feel like drink anything. This is best treatment. In diarrhea, you have to protect yourself from loss of water body, ORS helps a lot it. 5. Take Tablet Norflox-TZ twice a day after food for 5 days (It may cause bitter mouth which will improve automatically after completing course of drugs.) If any other symptoms, like, blood in stool, rice water stool, or symptoms worsen, contact immediately to doctor. ***Get well soon*** “In children, dehydration used to be dangerous, so be cautious and contact doctor”

First of all, any incidental finding of a gall stone is not an indication for surgery. Your stone size may not be 8-10 cms, which you have written, it would have 8-10 mm I feel. Asymptomatic gall stone should not be touched. If one is willing to go ahed of surgery, A Laparoscopic approach is gold standard. If in histopathology its, a cancer, then one will have to find out the limit of spread (thickness/layer of gall bladder involvement, depending upon next surgery needed.
