Thanks for posting your query.

It is good to know that your diabetes is well under control.

I can understand your problem. What you are having is discomfort due to excessive formation of gas, this can be due to increase in acid formation in your stomach due to drugs you are taking or some food habits.

Please discuss this with your doctor and try to find out the reason for this burning in chest.

Ecosprin can surely cause this but still other reasons also needed to be looked for.

Ecosprin is normally advised to diabetes patients for prevention of heart disease. In general diabetics carry high risk of heart disease. Without taking other things in to consideration like cholesterol,your general health,ECG etc. it is not advisable to stop this drug.

In mean time please try following which should help.

Plan your diet well.
Take small 4-5 means during the day; this will help in diabetes and this problem also.
Avoid too much of tea/coffee etc.Do not take masala tea etc.
Avoid pickles and fermented foods.
Discuss with your doctor about antacid to have relief.

I hope this answers your query, I will be glad to reply any follow up query that you have.

In case you do not have any further query, please accept the answer.

Wishing you best of health.

Good to hear from you again.

It is very good that your all the reports are normal.

Yes,Ganaton total is a good drug, which can be taken once daily at every morning. Please continue this at least for 4-6 weeks. After that depending upon the complain further can be decided.

As far as diet is concerned, you should have good breakfast in morning, lunch, some light healthy snacks or fruits in the late noon and light dinner in evening.

Please do not eat heavy stuff in evening and do not go to bed for at least for 2 hours after dinner.

Ideal gap should be of about 4 hours minimum.

Wishing you good health.
