Gastric Problem: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Gastric Problems are caused by a number of reasons- these include uncontrolled drinking habits, consumption of spicy food, not chewing the food properly before swallowing it, digestive trouble, bacterial infections and as well as stress and tension.

Symptoms of Gastric problem include bloating of the stomach, bad breath, belching and acidity coupled with gas.

The treatment for gastric trouble varies depending on whether you have been diagnosed with non-ulcer dyspepsia or peptic ulcer. Non-ulcer dyspepsia is also called by the name of functional dyspepsia. The treatment for it includes taking of antidepressants of low doses, medications that help to negate anxiety and drugs to help fight stomach acid. Drugs that help to alleviate stomach acid issues comprise of H2 blockers such as rantidine, nizatidine, cimetidine, famotidine and proton pump inhibitors such as pantoprazole, rabeprazole, omeprazole, lansoprazole. Peptic ulcer if caused due to a H. pylori infection will include treatments such as therapy (Short-term triple therapy). This involves taking an acid-reducing agent and two antibiotics. According to doctors, stress can heighten the condition of peptic ulcer. If your ulcer problem is left untreated it may result in a hole in the small intestine or in the stomach wall region.

How is the treatment done?

Drugs such as H2 blockers are a category of medications that work by minimizing the amount of acid produced by the stomach. When a H2 receptor blocker is consumed the active ingredients contained within this drug travels to certain specified regions of the stomach cells. These blockers inhibit the acid releasing cells in the stomach from reacting to histamine. H2 blockers prevent peptic ulcers from showing up again. Usually, the H2 blockers are quickly absorbed by the body to provide immediate relief to the ailing conditions of peptic ulcer.

Short-term triple therapy treatment is very effective in treating conditions caused by Helicobacter Pylori infection. In an experiment carried out on 65 patients over a period of one week- short term triple therapy consisting of 250 mg of clarithromycin twice a day, 20 mg of omeprazole once daily and 500 mg of tinidazole twice a day it is seen, that after a month of completing the treatment Helicobacter Pylori infection was successfully eradicated in 62 patients.

In cases where the ulcer has started to bleed carrying out an endoscopy test can help to control the bleeding. For patients who do not show any positive results even after taking mediations or doing endoscopy, surgery might be advised. These procedures include vagotmay (cutting of the vagus nerve) and semi gastrectomy (partial removal of a part of the stomach).

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

All are eligible for the treatment of gastric trouble. But your doctor may prescribe the dose depending on your age and the severity of your condition. H2 blocker receptor drugs are also safe for people who are pregnant.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

It is recommended that people who are severely allergic to H2 blocker receptors should avoid taking them in order to prevent any life-threatening reactions.

Are there any side effects?

The side effects that are commonly seen on taking H2 blockers are usually mild. These are diarrhoea, trouble sleeping, dryness of the mouth, ringing sensation in the ears, constipation and headaches. Certain serious side effects include trouble breathing, wheezing, agitation, burning skin and vision issues.

Endoscopy is an otherwise safe procedure but complications may have the chance of including bleeding, infection, fever, abdominal pain, vomiting and tearing of the gastrointestinal tract.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Post-treatment guidelines for gastric trouble include taking your medication as prescribed by your doctor on a regular basis and on time, checking if you are taking any anti-inflammatory or pain killers by mistake as that may aggravate the chances of heartburn. You need to exercise regularly but make sure to avoid exercises that are of a high-impact nature. Do ensure to keep a tab on your diet- avoid alcohol, greasy or fried foods, spicy foods, carbonated drinks, and other citrus fruits or their juices. Keep yourself hydrated at all times by drinking pure water and other oral hydration solutions.

How long does it take to recover?

Depending on the seriousness of your case the recovery period of your treatment can range from something between 1 week to 4 weeks, maximum. If your gastric problem is mainly due to indigestion you can also get better in a day provided you take the required medicine on time.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

A single leaf of medicine as prescribed by the doctor for treating gastric trouble can range from something as low as Rs.50 to as high as Rs. 700. The price of an endoscopy test could cost you Rs. 1500 on an average and a biopsy test could cost around 250-500 additionally.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

There are no treatments that will permanently cure the problem of gastrointestinal disorder. The only way to keep your gastric trouble at bay is by avoiding spicy, greasy and fried foods, avoid dairy foods and those rich in sugar. Eat meals small in portion and chew them well before swallowing. Do not stay on an empty stomach for long hours.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

The alternative treatment of gastric trouble includes certain home remedies that are readily available in your kitchen. These are turmeric (have turmeric mixed with milk everyday to get the desired results), potato juice (have potato juice pre-meal thrice a day to cure your problem of stomach gas), ginger (ginger is good for treating gastric problem as well as indigestion), baking soda (it works as an effective antacid and gives instant relief when you have it mixed with water on an empty stomach), apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, cardamom, onion and charcoal (having a charcoal tablet before and after your meals which will greatly help in reducing the issues of acidity and gas).

Gastric Band Surgery - Know How Competent Is It?

Gastric Band Surgery - Know How Competent Is It?

Losing weight is a daunting task. This becomes all the more difficult for obese people. In many cases, the patient may be advised to undergo bariatric surgery. There are many types of bariatric surgery. Some surgeries address both the stomach and the small intestines while others address only the stomach. A gastric band surgery is one such procedure.

For this procedure, an adjustable band is placed around the upper half of the stomach. This creates a small pouch that can hold a limited amount of food. The band is connected through a plastic tube to a small device placed under the abdominal skin. Sterile fluid may be injected or removed from the band through this device. By injecting saline, the band is made tighter and by removing the liquid the band is loosened. This allows the band to be customized to improve weight loss.

The result of a gastric band surgery may vary from person to person. Band adjustment starts after the third week of surgery. Because the size of the stomach is reduced, the person will feel full faster and hence eat less. In most cases, a person can expect to lose 60 to 75 % of their excess body weight. This should not be confused with a person’s total weight. The procedure can be reversed at a later date if need be.

Some people may develop side effects like nausea and vomiting after the procedure. But why this procedure has not gained acceptance compared to other bariatric procedures like gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy is because, the compliance with the band is not very good and complications like band erosion, band slippage, band migration are very high. Another dreaded complication following the band surgery in non-compliant patients who eat large quantities and overstretch the small gastric pouch above the band is severe GERD.

In severe cases, rarely, grains of undigested food is seen in the mouth on waking up in the morning. This could be life-threatening. Vitamin deficiencies are rare provided supplements are taken regularly during the weight loss period.  

Gradual band adjustment is required and regular follow up with the bariatric surgeon will yield good results. Over adjustment is not good at all and could lead to higher chances of complications like band erosion. However, proper dietary compliance can make the results of a band better. Ideally, a patient should get follow up checks every month after such a surgery.

All said and done, the percentage of excess weight loss in the gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy are far superior to the adjustable gastric banding. Even the compliance, and maintenance of weight loss over years is better in the other bariatric procedures compared to the band.

Perianal Abscess - How It Can Be Managed?

Perianal Abscess - How It Can Be Managed?

The human body is an intricate mechanism that functions amazingly. And when there is any trouble it does not fail to show signs of trouble, and all we need to do is, to notice it and solve our problems. This is applicable to all types of health issue, including a perianal abscess.

What is perianal abscess?
The extremely painful condition of anal abscess occurs when one cavity in the anus starts getting filled up with pus. Very often it appears as a painful swelling similar to boil just near the anus. Usually, it appears red in color as well as slightly warm to touch. If the location of the anal abscesses is in the deeper tissue, then it might be less visible and it occurs in people suffering from inflammatory bowel disease.
The worst part is that in certain cases, anal abscesses might lead to more painful anal fistulas. Generally, fistulas occur only if the abscesses fail to heal and break open on the skin’s surface. Therefore, it is important that the abscess heals properly or else it may lead to intolerable pain and may even require surgery.

How do you know if it is a perianal abscess?
The immediately noticeable and probably the most common anal abscess symptom is constant and throbbing pain around the anal area. Swelling accompanies the pain and its rate increases during bowel movements. Various other common signs include bleeding or rectal discharge, constipation, fatigue, etc. Besides swelling or tenderness, the affected individual might also suffer from skin irritation all around the anus.

Patients with deeper abscess might also show symptoms such as chills, fever, malaise, etc. Various reports state that certain people also feel a lump or nodule at their anus’s rim. Facing difficulty while urinating might also be experienced by some people affected by perianal abscess.

What to do if you suspect a perianal abscess?
One must immediately seek medical if they experience any of the above-mentioned signs or symptoms. Clinical evaluation along with digital rectal exam is sufficient for the proper diagnosis. But, in some cases, patients might need other tests to screen for rectal cancer, diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease and sexually transmitted infections. Your physician might also suggest for a CT scan, an MRI or an ultrasound.
Just after the diagnosis, a prompt surgical drainage would be carried out by the doctor before the abscess erupts. Deeper or larger abscess might require hospitalization as well as an anesthesiologist’s assistance. In most cases, patients are prescribed certain medications for pain relief just after the procedure. Antibiotics are mainly given to those people who have comparatively weaker immunity or suffer from diabetes.

Sleeve Gastrectomy -  10 Ways It Is Beneficial For You!

Some people find it harder to lose weight as compared to others. Gastric sleeve surgery is a viable option for such people. This surgery involves reducing the size of the stomach to control the intake of food.

Here are 10 ways this surgery will affect you.

  1. You’ll need a special diet for the first few days: You will need to follow a special diet for 8 weeks after the surgery. This gives your stomach the time to heal properly. Normal food will have to be reintroduced slowly. However, alter, you can eat anything you like.
  2. You can eat lesser: You’ll find yourself taking smaller servings at all meals as your stomach is much smaller than it was. This does not mean that you’ll be able to eat more frequently. It simply means that you will eat a lot lesser. A smaller stomach also means that you will feel less hungry.
  3. Weight LossAfter a gastric sleeve surgery, patients typically lose up to 75% of their excess weight. In the first three months itself, you should see yourself lose up to 33% of excess body weight. Thus, it can help cure obesity and reduce your BMI.
  4. Resolution of obesity-related health issues: As your weight reduces, so does the impact of other diseases. Patients suffering from diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and sleep apnea report a large amount of improvement in their conditions after this surgery.
  5. Stronger joints: Excess weight puts additional pressure on your joints. This can cause joint pain and increase the wear and tear of joint cartilage. By reducing your weight, there is less pressure on your joints. Improved mobility and lesser knee pain are commonly experienced benefits.
  6. Lowered cancer risk: The risk of some types of cancer is associated with the patient’s weight. As a result of this surgery, the risk of colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer and endometrial cancer reduces by up to 33%.
  7. Improved fertilityWomen with obesity of overweight issues typically find it difficult to conceive. A gastric sleeve surgery can improve these fertility rates. Studies have shown that more than 50% of the women who underwent this procedure could conceive a child successfully within the next year.
  8. Improved mental health: Your weight also affects your self-confidence. In many cases being overweight or obese contributes to depression. Undergoing this surgery can improve a patients’ self-image and relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety etc.
  9. Better sleep: Losing body fat makes it more comfortable to get a good night’s sleep. Weight loss also helps treat conditions such as sleep apnea that can keep you from sleeping restfully.
  10. Your weight loss will plateau after 2 years: As time passes, your stomach will begin to expand. Hence you may not see yourself losing too much weight after the first year. If you are not careful, you may begin to put on weight again after the 2nd or 3rd year.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Gastric Sleeve Surgery - Understanding The Process!

Gastric Sleeve Surgery - Understanding The Process!

When dieting and exercising fail to help an obese person manage their weight, bariatric surgery may be suggested. One of the most popular types of bariatric surgery is a gastric sleeve surgery or sleeve gastrectomy. The main aim of this surgery is to reduce the amount of food that can be consumed in one sitting. It does not affect the amount of nutrients and fats absorbed from the food that has been eaten. A majority of the weight loss resulting from this surgery happens within 18 months.

A gastric sleeve surgery is a relatively safe, straightforward and short surgery. Prior to the day of the surgery, you would have been given a special diet to be followed for two weeks. It is essential to follow this diet strictly. This surgery may be performed laparoscopically or via a large incision made in the abdomen. More than half the outer side of the stomach is removed. The remaining part of the stomach takes the form of a tube. This surgery is not reversible.

Recovery from a gastric sleeve surgery varies from person to person. A certain amount of pain and discomfort is normal for the first week following the surgery. Soft foods may be introduced in week 4 and you can get back to small amounts of your normal food in week 5. You will notice that you feel fuller much faster and are able to consume a very limited portion of your normal food intake. In some cases, your food may also be emptied into the small intestines at a very fast rate. This is known as dumping syndrome. This may cause diarrhea and nausea and leave you feeling weak. It is essential to drink plenty of water to allow for smooth bowel movements and to prevent constipation.

On an average, this surgery can help people lose up to 60% of their excess body weight. However, this depends largely on your control over your diet and the amount of exercise you do. At some point in time, your weight loss may plateau. This is normal to overcome this, you must make a change to your diet or exercise schedule. A dietician can also help you address the right number of meals needed by your body. A gastric sleeve surgery does not require any maintenance post the surgery but it is important not to fall back to your earlier unhealthy lifestyle and to maintain a positive attitude. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

5 Common Gastric Problems Experienced By Diabetics!!

5 Common Gastric Problems Experienced By Diabetics!!

Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects almost every part of your body. Of these, the digestive system is the most badly affected. While gastrointestinal disorders are commonly experienced by everyone, diabetics have a much higher risk of suffering from indigestion, food poisoning, gallstones and ulcers. Some of the most common gastrointestinal problems experienced by diabetics are:

  1. Gastroparesis: High blood sugar levels can damage the vagus nerve that controls the emptying of the stomach. As a result fo this damage, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work optimally leading to a condition known as Gastroparesis. This is a condition where the stomach is not able to empty itself properly and the digestion process is slowed down. Gastroparesis can cause bloating, nausea, pain in the abdomen, heart burn and a loss of appetite. It can also cause undigested food in the stomach to harden and form lumps that block food from moving into the intestines. This disease cannot be cured but can be managed with medication and a special diet.
  2. Ulcers: Stomach ulcers can be described as open sores that develop on the inner lining of the stomach, oesophagus and beginning of the small intestine. These ulcers form as a result of bacterial infections. Diabetes weakens a person’s immune system thus reducing their ability to fight these infections and increasing the risk of developing ulcers. Diabetes also increases the risk of bleeding from these ulcers and secondary infections that may arise from it.
  3. Yeast infections: Diabetics are extremely vulnerable to yeast infections. This is aggravated by fluctuation in blood sugar levels and can extend from the mouth to the oesophagus. Common symptoms of this type of yeast infection are pain in the throat and difficulty swallowing. It may also cause heartburn and intestinal bleeding if left untreated.
  4. Celiac sprue: This condition creates gluten allergies and causes the inflammation and thinning of the small intestine’s mucosa. In some cases, this condition may interfere with the absorption of food and lead to diarrhoea and weight loss.
  5. Diabetic diarrhoea: Patients who have been suffering from diabetes for a few years may experience an increased urge to pass stools frequently. This is usually related to gastric problems in the colon which cause fluids to move at a faster than normal speed through the small bowel and colon. It may also be caused due to the secretion of fluids in the colon and improper absorption of food. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. MASTURBATION is normal, natural and never unhealthy. But Excess masturbation can kill your sexual stamina. Excess masturbation can also cause anxiety disorder, depression and thereby erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation etc. You can be sure; there are no side effects to masturbation if you are able to restrict it to thrice a week. Jogging and physical exercise are always good to keep you fit and stop worrying about sex and allied thinking. I suggest online sex counseling and therapy. Take care.

While you may think it's absolutely necessary to have a glass of water during your meals, the truth is this habit of yours might be damaging your health. Read on to find out how.

1. It dilutes your gastric juices -
When the digestive acids (acids responsible for the digestion and breakdown of food as well as for killing infectious agents ingested with food) present in your stomach are diluted with water, they bring about a slowdown in the functioning of your entire digestive system. This slowdown results in food remaining lodged in your stomach for a longer period than normal, thereby causing indigestion.

Additionally, the reaction caused by the dilution of water and stomach acids can give rise to cramps in your tummy.

2. It reduces the saliva in your mouth -
The same thing that happens to the acids in your stomach, happens to your saliva as well. Water dilutes the saliva, which stops the breakdown of food in your mouth. Also, your saliva is responsible for stimulating your stomach to release digestive enzymes and prepare itself for the process of digestion. By drinking water with your meals, such signals sent by your saliva to your stomach become much weaker. All these together can make digestion very difficult.

3. It causes acidity -
Studies show that drinking water with your meals not only leads to the dilution of digestive enzymes, but also brings about a reduction in the secretion of digestive enzymes. This causes the undigested food in your stomach to leak into the lower part of your oesophagus (food pipe), causing acidity and heart burn.

4. It increases insulin production -
Sipping on water in the middle of lunch (or any other meal for that matter) causes a spike in your insulin levels just as glycaemic foods (foods with high starch or sugar content such as honey, potatoes, white bread, rice to name a few) would. When your body is unable to digest food properly, it usually tends to convert the glucose filled part of that food into fat and stores it, reason why your blood sugar levels see an upsurge.

5. It adds to your weight -
Since drinking water causes an increase in insulin levels in your body (as the food you eat is converted to fat), it can result in the piling of extra weight on your body. This is because a weak digestive system is one of the major causes behind obesity.

Try having your meals with less salt and drink water 30 minutes before each meal to control your thirst when you're eating. This can help you in controlling the negative effects that drinking water with your meals can have on your health.
