Detailed Answer:

Hello,
Thanks choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.


Simethicone is an anti-foaming agent that decreases the surface tension of gas bubbles, causing them to combine into larger bubbles in the stomach that can be passed more easily. Simethicone does not reduce or prevent the formation of gas in the digestive tract; rather, it increases the rate at which it exits the body.Therefor it should be combined with a proton pump inhibitor like Nexium which prevents formation of gas inside and an additive effect of both will give you super quick relief.

As per safety is concerned both are very safe and can be taken even for months without concerns.

Thanks!

Brief Answer:
Simethicone is a basic old drug.


Detailed Answer:
Bloating and acid can be caused by any kind of food. In most of the cases, it's fatty foods which cause these symptoms. Any food whether it's fat or protein or complex carbohydrate when can not be properly digested, releases large amount of gases like hydrogen, methane, carbon dioxide which causes burping.

Treat the root cause and problem would settle down on its own.
The pathophysiology of gas and bloating is complicated.
The term gut microflora or microbiota means hundreds of species of bacteria which lives in our intestinal tract.These bacterias and yeast are responsible for proper digestion and fermentation of food. Hundreds of species of bacteria and yeast are found in colon of human intestine.In the same way thousands of these species flourishes in our gut these bacteria play a vital role in digestion and absorption of food.Even minor disturbances in gut microflora can lead to significant changes in gut function, including gas production.
There are various mechanism that can be related to increased flatulence

If this microbiota is disturbed food is improperly fermented causing production of large amount of gases in gut leading to severe fbloating.Hence most common cause in most of the cases is disturbed microbiota.
Suggestion take a probiotic like Bifilac twice daily.
Take Nexium 40 mg twice daily

Food suggestion-
Some food plans are-
-Whole grains are very beneficial to consume.These can be in the form of XXXXXXX whole wheat bread or cereal, brown rice, whole grain pasta,grains such as whole oats, wild rice, rye, oatmeal and corn are also beneficial and can be taken if suits your fooding pattern.
-Fruits and vegetables should be a significant part of any diet to help in recovering from a liver disease. They are full of essential nutrients and are easy to digest.When on recovery diet follow a high carbohydrate diet,Fat contents of diet should be very low.However Olive oil, canola oil and flaxseed oil are all healthy fats that are recommended as part of a diet for patients.


- Consume low fiber foods as a part of high fiber diet.

Semithicone is a old drug use what i suggested you and you would be fine .Don't take too much salad and fibres for weight loss instead take high lean protein that would reduce your appetite and try oilless cooking like grill.


You can try L carnitine and conjugated linolenic acid for weight loss.
If Interested i can guide you.
