Frequently Asked Questions
What could be wrong with my stomach?
I'm 22 and for a while now i've been experiencing stomach issues. It seems no matter what i eat (healthy or not) I get gas, usually just moments after swallowing food. Sometimes it hurts, fills like like my intestines are about to explode. Also when i'm hungry and after I eat something I have loud excessive belches.
That sounds really annoying! I've had similar problems and was given a diagnosis of IBS and Celiac's disease. But your problem might be because of one of these issues or something else completely.
Your best bet would be to visit a doctor and in the mean time drink plenty of water and avoid things that make you gassy like soda and beans!
What would you do if you were on trading spouses/wife swap?
I don't think I'd ever get chosen because we're just too normal. We're mooderate to conservative, cook our meat, we aren't pirates, our kid eats french fries and doesn't practice dance for 3 hours a day, our funrature is second hand, our home is modest, I mean, it would be lame TV to film our every day life.
I would probably end up in a family that is really really rich and excessive, since we are moderately poor.
WOuld you do it? Who would you be pair with?
Oh, you'd be surprised how many families are opposite of "normal" in this country. I've seen episodes of Wife Swap where one family was like you are and they found a good opposing family. They'll find a family that is vegetarian, never eat fast food, are well off and have a very strict and demanding schedule.
I would totally go on the show when I have older kids. It cracks me up watching it but many of the family do learn a lesson and find out what they're missing out on that's important. I love the episodes where they really do turn their life around, it's so great.
I would be paired with a very strange, rude family with no value in education (I highly value education). They'd be the belching, farting, messy type of people out there. I don't mind messes but I do mind when things aren't sanitary.
One episode a family said that the American dream was really the American nightmare. I'd be paired with them. I would be very happy with a little house with the white picket fence, two kids and a dog.
What does it mean if you throw up after every meal?
No matter what I eat, I feel super sick and throw up after I finish the meal. I'm not bulimic on purpose it just happens. I feel nauseous and sick to my stomach. I am 27 years old and female.
Do you keep getting dizzy, and feeling sick to your stomach/Gas buld up/Farting all day/bloated feeling, heart feels like its has gas as will. and your neck hearts in the right side Or Left Side. Win Your up and walking do you fell all right. and the thing that is weard is i fell at ease/thing right. and win i go to bed i think i will not wake up.
A. Git a CAT Scan/Blood test /Hart test and all.
B. Git a Ultar Sound On your gut/Stomach.
C. It might be Gastritises.
Signs And Symptoms.
Vomiting (if present, may be clear, green or yellow, blood-streaked, or completely bloody, depending on the severity of the stomach inflammation)
Belching (if present, usually does not relieve the pain much)
Feeling full after only a few bites of food
Loss of appetite
Unexplained weight loss
The main acute causes are excessive alcohol consumption or prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (also known as NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Sometimes gastritis develops after major surgery, traumatic injury, burns, or severe infections. Gastritis may also occur in those who have had weight loss surgery resulting in the banding or reconstruction of the digestive tract. Chronic causes are infection with bacteria, primarily Helicobacter pylori, chronic bile reflux, stress and certain autoimmune disorders can cause gastritis as well. The most common symptom is abdominal upset or pain. Other symptoms are indigestion, abdominal bloating, nausea, and vomiting and pernicious anemia. Some may have a feeling of fullness or burning in the upper abdomen.A gastroscopy, blood test, complete blood count test, or a stool test may be used to diagnose gastritis. Treatment includes taking antacids or other medicines, such as proton pump inhibitors or antibiotics, and avoiding hot or spicy foods. For those with pernicious anemia, B12 injections are given.
What can I take to stop flatulence during the night?
It's rather embarrassing.
Would charcoal, digestive enzymes or inner health bacteria help most?
Despite the embarrassment, breaking wind isn't worth getting all huffy about. We all do it, usually between 8 and 20 times a day.
Flatulence means just that you have excessive gas in the stomach or intestine, which can result from being sedentary, swallowing air while chewing or having trouble digesting carbohydrates (although other foods can also produce gas, such as dairy products, sauerkraut and artificial sweeteners).
Those on a high-fiber diet rich in fruits and vegetables are especially prone to flatulence.
But the natural remedies below may help releive excessive flatulence, according to some health professionals.
A mixture of one teaspoon of grated fresh ginger pulp and one teaspoon of lime juice, taken immediately after eating, can prevent excess gas and lower abdominal pain, says Vasant Lad, B.A.M.S., M.A.Sc., director of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Kombu, a sea vegetable that's available in most Asian grocery stores and mosthealth food stores, can help neutralize foods that usually trigger flatulence, says Allan Magaziner, D.O., a nutritional medicine specialist and head of the Magaziner Medical Center in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
"Let's says you're boiling broccoli, a food that can cause flatulence in many people. Simply put a little strip of kombu in the pot while you're cooking. It helps neutralize the gas from teh broccoli, so you avoid the flatulence afterward."
A 30C dose of Carbo vegtabilis, taken once or twice a day, may stop a sudden, acute attack of flatulence, particulary if it is accompanied by a lot of belching, says Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, N.D., a naturopathic physician in Edmonds, Washington, and co-author of The Patient's Guide to Homeopathic Medicine.
The licorice-flavored plant fennel has long been used to help relieve or eexpel gas, according to Micheal Murry, N.D., a naturopathic physician and author of The Complete Book of Juicing.
Since fresh fennel has a very strong flavor, Dr. Murry recommends juicing a few sprigs of the herb with apples, pears, carrots or celery and drinking eight ounces of the blend.
What are the risk factors, signs and symptoms of Dumping Syndrome?
Please help me. I really need to know for a paperwork. Thanks!
Rick Factors are:
Several types of stomach surgery increase your risk of dumping syndrome. These include:
* Gastrectomy, in which a portion or all of your stomach is removed. It typically includes removing the pylorus.
* Gastroenterostomy or gastrojejunostomy, in which your stomach is surgically connected directly to your small intestine about two feet beyond the pylorus, thus bypassing the pylorus. Doctors sometimes perform this operation in people with cancer of the stomach.
* Vagotomy, in which the nerves to your stomach are cut in order to lower the levels of acid manufactured by your stomach.
* Fundoplication, which is an operation sometimes performed on people with gastroesophageal reflux disease. It involves wrapping the upper portion of your stomach around the lower esophagus to apply pressure that reduces the reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus. However, on rare occasions, certain nerves to the stomach can unintentionally be damaged during surgery and lead to dumping syndrome.
* Gastric bypass surgery (Roux-en-Y operation), which is often performed in people who are morbidly obese. It surgically creates a stomach pouch that's smaller than the entire stomach, meaning you're no longer able to eat as much as you once did, resulting in weight loss.
Certain underlying conditions also may make you more susceptible to dumping syndrome. These conditions include:
* Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, which causes severe peptic ulcers
In addition, using the medication metoclopramide (Reglan) can increase your risk. This drug is sometimes prescribed to ease nausea, vomiting and heartburn.
When symptoms of dumping syndrome occur during a meal or within 15 to 30 minutes following a meal, they may include:
* Abdominal pain, cramps
* Dizziness, lightheadedness
* Bloating, belching
* Heart palpitations, rapid heart rate
When signs and symptoms develop later, they may include:
* Weakness, fatigue
* Dizziness, lightheadedness
* Feelings of anxiety, nervousness
* Heart palpitations, rapid heart rate
* Mental confusion
Some people experience both early and late signs and symptoms. Conditions such as dizziness and heart palpitations can occur either early or late or both. No matter when problems develop, however, they may be worse in the aftermath of a high-sugar meal, especially one that's rich in sucrose (table sugar) or fructose (fruit sugar).
Some people also experience low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), related to excessive levels of insulin delivered to the bloodstream as part of the syndrome. Hypoglycemia is more often related to late signs and symptoms. Insulin influences your tissues to take up the sugar present in your bloodstream.
What are the symptoms of low iron levels?
Without getting a blood test.
Its hard to tell without a blood test cos the symptoms could mean many different things but!! here are a few things to look for (PS mre333mre333 is full is s*&t)
If you have 5 or more of the symtoms below, see your doctor:
Also consider taking B-Complx vitamins
* Listlessness, weakness, decreased work productivity
* Impaired learning and cognitive function
* ADD and ADHD type behavioral disturbances
* Developmental delay in infants and young children
* Poor memory
* Decreased attention span and increased distractibility
* Impaired reactivity and coordination
* Appetite loss
* Cravings for non foods such as ice, dirt or clay
* Difficulty swallowing (because low iron may cause a thin membrane to grow across the esophagus)
* Joint soreness
* Night time leg cramps
* Sores on skin, or itching
* Poor wound healing
* Can cause excessive menstrual bleeding
* Hair loss (LOW IRON IS A FREQUENTLY OVERLOOKED CAUSE OF HAIR LOSS)
* Sore or burning tongue
* Soreness in corners of the mouth
* Brittle, flat, or spoon shaped nails
* Longitudinal ridges on nails
* Heart palpitations on exertion
* Shortness of breath
* Cold extremities, with decreased resistance to cold and poor regulation of body temperature
* Tendency to recurrent infections
* Chronic bladder infections
* Anemia (hypo chromic, microcytic) paleness, weakness, drowsiness, fatigue
* Numbness & tingling
* Night sweats
* Fragile bones
* Growth impairment in children
* Eye soreness
* Vague gastrointestinal symptoms: belching, gas, nausea
* Vitiligo (light blotches on the skin)
* Swelling in the ankles
* Bluish tint to the whites of the eyes
* Visual disturbances
* Papilledema (swelling inside the eye)
What does Coke actually do to you?
I was told that it makes your body fill with gas and makes your belly become fat?! Is that true?! What else does it do?
I take it you mean Coca-Cola? Yes, it will put lots of gas into your stomach (the bubbles in the drink are carbon dioxide), but you'll get rid of that by natural means (belching). Drinking excessive amounts can make you gain weight as it's full of sugar (unless a "diet" version). Excess sugar is converted into fat by your body. Coke is also very corrosive to teeth as it's acidic, put a dull copper coin in a glass of coke for an hour and see how clean and shiny it comes out - the acidity will dissolve away the surface dirt, and over time will do the same to your tooth enamel!
Coke also contains caffeine, again large amounts are not good for you.
I almost never drink the stuff!!
Why am I always bloated after I run?
Immediately after I run, my stomach looks hugely bloated and not at all its normal size. Of course, about a half hour or so later my stomach starts to get back to normal, and the results show after I run. But I just want to know why my stomach is so bloated immediately after I finish running. Thanks!!!
American Running Association
It's long been suspected that runners -- even moderate-intensity, recreational middle-distance runners -- are more prone to intestinal gas than average, non-running adults. GI symptoms affect up to 50 percent of all marathoners; it's widely understood that under the biochemical and biomechanical stresses associated with certain types of exercise, the integrity of the GI mucosal block can become damaged, leading to an uptake of toxic substrates.
But although this can and often does cause bloating and gas formation, how much is normal, and what can be done to treat it?
For starters, it's important to understand that the average adult releases one to three pints of intestinal gas daily. Releasing gas 10 to 20 times a day is considered average. Most of this occurs without our knowledge. Some people are simply more sensitive to the presence of gas or less tolerant of its effects.
For runners, bloating, cramps, side ache and flatulence are among the most common symptoms. But a study of over 600 athletes conducted by the Department of Medical Physiology and Sports Medicine at Utrecht University in the Netherlands found that, while distance running -- as opposed to cycling or other forms of exercise -- is indeed associated with problems of the lower GI tract, these are significantly related to the frequency of gas occurrence during non-exercise periods, as well as the runner's age and diet. (Cyclists are more prone to upper GI problems such as nausea, belching and heartburn.) It's not always running that causes the problem, though it may exacerbate it.
The two main sources of gas are, in fact, swallowed air and the breakdown of food in the intestine. We swallow more air if we eat too quickly, gulp down fluids or drink carbonated beverages. Normal burping is caused by air we swallow while eating and usually ceases within an hour of finishing the meal. Chronic burping is caused by constant, unconscious air swallowing, often from anxiety (hyperventilating increases the amount of air we swallow, thereby increasing gas).
Excessive gas is seldom hazardous. It's unpleasant, however, and several strategies can be used to reduce it. One of the most effective means for reducing gas is to remind yourself to eat and drink more slowly.
The severity of symptoms depends, in part, upon how fast your digestive system moves. The resident bacteria in the lower bowel produce gas as they break down foods not fully digested by enzymes in the upper GI tract. Changing your diet can help; unfortunately some of the healthiest foods are the biggest gas producers.
One major gas producer is raffinose, a complex sugar found in vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, asparagus and some whole grains. Peas and beans contain starches and fiber that can cause problems as well. Rice is the only starch that doesn't create gas. Fish, chicken, and most meats also produce little gas. If you're lactose intolerant, you'll produce gas by eating dairy products, as the undigested lactose makes its way to the gas-producing bacteria in the lower GI.
Myriad products lay claim to helping reduce the gas caused by eating certain foods. Listed here are a few of the more effective.
* Alpha-galactosidase, aka Beano, reduces gas as it breaks down gas-producing sugars in beans and other vegetables.
* Activated charcoal pills, though they may react with certain prescription medications, are another option for reducing gas formation.
* Lactase (such as Lactaid, Dairy Ease, and Lactrase) helps digest foods that contain lactose.
* Probiotics containing the bacterium L. plantarum, such as those found in yogurt, may reduce gas formation as well, though they can cause gas initially.
* Pepto-Bismol primarily reduces gas odor.
Beans (whether black, kidney, or pinto) contain great amounts of protein, iron, fiber, B vitamins, potassium and magnesium. They're inexpensive, have little fat, and may reduce the risk of heart disease, hypertension and even cancer. For these reasons, it's worth keeping beans in your diet. To reduce the gas they cause, try soaking dry beans overnight or boiling for two minutes and letting them stand for an hour before cooking in fresh water.

how is gastritis diagnonsed or can the gastrologist dignose u with it just from ur symptoms?
Can the gastrologist diganose gastritis just from the symptoms ur having and also how is it treated?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Classification & external resources ICD-10 K29.0-K29.7
Gastritis is inflammation of the gastric mucosa. The word comes from the Greek gastro- meaning of the stomach and -itis meaning inflammation. Depending on the cause, it may persist acutely or chronically.

The following are known causes of gastritis:
Bacterial infection (often by Helicobacter pylori)
Fungal infection (typically in people with AIDS)
Parasitic infection (often from poorly cooked seafood)
Excessive alcohol consumption
Certain types of radiation
The following symptoms can be a result of gastritis or can be related to the underlying cause:
Upper abdominal pain or discomfort
A doctor may order a barium meal test and if the results determine the presence of gastritis, a gastroscopic biopsy check may follow. For Helicobacter pylori infection (the most common cause), one can test using blood antibody or stool antigen tests, or with a urea breath test.
Treatment consists of removing the irritant or the infection. In the case of Helicobacter pylori infection, a doctor may prescribe antibiotics
How to stop intestinal growls?
If anyone is going to say that i am hungry, im not. I eat a proper breakfast. I eat snacks in between. I eat fruit, vegetables, nuts. I also eat a proper dinner. But randomly throughout the day, i get intestinal growls. Sometimes they are loud, other times they are not. It is very embarressing for when i go to school and we sit tests or exams or just when the class is quiet. Is there anything i can do, or eat to cure or at least lessen the noise??
The Growling Stomach
Intestinal gas can also cause the familiar sounds of the "growling stomach," a term that's actually a misnomer, says Munsey Wheby, MD, president of the American College of Physicians.
"It's not usually the stomach making the noise," says Wheby, who is also senior associate dean and a professor of medicine at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. "Instead, it's caused by the intestines as they contract."
Everyone knows that a growling "stomach" can mean that you're hungry. But the noise often stems from the movement of air through the intestines, whether there's food there or not. So if you've been swallowing a lot of air, or if you've been eating things that your small intestine can't digest, you may hear some grumbling, or even a whole symphony of bizarre and embarrassing noises.
But like burping and flatulence, occasional growling from the intestines isn't anything to worry about, says Edmundowicz.
What Foods Cause Gas?
Obviously, some foods cause more gas than others. As any schoolboy will tell you, the most notorious offender is baked beans, but there are plenty of others, including grains (for instance, the word pumpernickel is believed to stem from Middle German and mean, roughly, "goblin that breaks wind").
Any food that is high in soluble fiber, for instance, is only broken down by bacteria in the large intestine, so that can mean more gas. Foods that may cause gas include:
Vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, onions, artichokes, and asparagus
Fruits such as apples, pears, and peaches
Whole grains, such as whole wheat and bran
Sodas and fruit drinks
Foods with sorbitol, often used as a sweetener in sugar-free gums and candies
As you may have noticed, many of those foods are the bedrock of healthy diets.
"People sometimes do get confused when they find out that a healthy high-fiber diet with lots of fruits and vegetables can cause excess gas symptoms," says Edmundowicz.
Fruits, vegetables, and grains are important for digestion in other ways, so if you have gas, be cautious when trying to eliminate healthy foods from your diet. You may just need to eat a little less to ease your symptoms
How Can I Reduce my Gas?
Ultimately, there's only so much one can do to reduce the amount of gas you have. Everyone has to contend with some belching and intestinal gas every day.
But if it's really bothering you, or if you feel that the amount of gas you're producing is excessive, there are some steps you can take. All three experts agree that the most important steps are making changes to your diet by:
Avoiding anything that might increase your chances of swallowing air, such as smoking, drinking through straws, and eating too quickly
Avoiding or cutting down on problematic foods, such as carbonated drinks, beans, and some raw vegetables
Considering a food diary. If you can't figure out what may be causing your increased gas, try keeping a journal of what you eat. You may find one or two foods that seem to increase your symptoms.
There are countless products sold in drugstores that may give you some relief, including antacids and digestive aids. But Wilcox and Edmundowicz caution that they may not help much.
"Antacids have very limited effects," says Edmundowicz. While simethicone, an ingredient in many antacids, seems to help some people with heartburn, it won't help with intestinal gas.
For people who are intolerant to lactose or the sugar in beans, enzymes are sold in over-the-counter products such as Lactaid and Beano, respectively, to help with digestion. However, their effectiveness varies from person to person, say Edmundowicz and Wilcox.
On the whole, Edmundowicz suggests that people use whatever over-the-counter or home remedies that help. "Because these symptoms aren't medically significant most of the time, we encourage people to use any safe remedy that works," he says.
When Should I See a Doctor?
Most of the time, gas symptoms aren't anything to worry about, but getting checked out is always a good idea. You should definitely see a doctor if:
You notice new symptoms
Your symptoms keep getting worse
Your symptoms are associated with pain, vomiting, or weight loss
Certain conditions, such as Crohn's disease or tumors, can cause blockage in the intestines and increase gas symptoms.
However, if you've always had gas and you're not having more serious symptoms as well, you probably don't have to worry, say Wilcox and Edmundowicz.
"People come in with complaints about gas and want to be diagnosed with something," says Wilcox. "I think that's how Americans tend to be. But for a lot of these symptoms, we just don't have an answer. It just depends on the individual."
So for most of us, coping with gas -- while noisy, embarrassing, and sometimes malodorous -- is just a normal part of life.
