Thanks for writing to us.
Kindly get the acute condition treated with injectable anti-emetics at the ER.
The age of your mother is not mentioned. Your mother is most probably suffering from intractable GERD(Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
) as a result of loosened /incompetant Gastrooesophageal Sphincter located at the junction of Stomach and Food pipe.
The best investigation for the above condition is Upper GE -Endoscopy
which is a day care
procedure done by a qualified Gastroenterologist.
Kindly avoid oily/spicy/irregular food habits. Timely eating bland soft Diabetic diet and walking for 30 mins after food and sleeping in a propped up position avoids GERD.
Medicines such as Antacids/Proton Pump
inhibitors /anti emetics /Pro-biotics and antispasmodics are usually prescribed after Clinical examination.
Complications of not taking precautions:
The overeating/obesity (usual features in Diabetes
)may in turn complicate the issue by indrawing of upper end of Stomach into thorax leading to Hiatus Hernea if the condition is allowed to continue.Peptic Ulcers may be also a sequelae.
Surgical Treament is by Fundoplication operation by Surgical Gastroenterologist.
Get well soon.
