Suggest treatment for abdominal pain and discomfort

default
Posted on Thu, 14 May 2015
Question: Hi doctor,

I have been feeling little discomfort and very mild pain in the abdomen area. Pain and discomfot is consistent every day but only sometime day I dont feel anything.

if I have to give you precise area where I feel pain, it's near middle left of the lower rib cage and on the right side too.

I got the ultrasound scanning done which says I have a fatty liver. Also my lipid profile shows high cholesterol of 270 (ldl, hdl, triglycerides etc.)

is the discomfort and painting that I'm facing is due to fatty liver and cholesterol issue? Or could there be something else?

Can liv52ds would do any help for me? if so what dosage should I take? Else let me know what I should do or take.

Best regards,
XXXX

Hi, doctor,

thank you for your response. Here is the details per your questions
1. I've been suffering stomach discomfort and dull pain since 20 days.
2. From last 20 days, I've been under strict diet. (I'm a vegetarian and don't eat meat).
3. Pain is through out the day but a bit more when I eat. However, I always feel discomfort on all posture be it standing, sitting or laying.
4. My urine and stool test had showed puss cells, so I've been taking homeopathy medicines for that. Otherwise no other medication.
5. Pain is very dull and mild but I feel discomfort all the time. However, in a week there are one or two days where I don't feel any discomfortness or pain.
6. No , pain first disturb me during sleep.
7. apart from abdomen pain, sometimes, I feel mild pain around chest . I'm not sure if it's exactly pain but it's more of a pricking feeling.

Looking forward for your advice. also, I've bought Liv52ds today, let me know if I can take it?

Thanks for your response.

As from your reply it may be a gastritis problem.
Kindly take food in proper time. Don't skip food.
Avoid junk,fried items,spicy foods.

Don't take late night heavy food.

Kindly Take an ECG to rule out cardiac problems.
As liv52 IS good for liver function.take 2 tablet thrice a day.
As you need to avoid fatty foods.add more fibre fruits and vegetables.
Do exercise and Be hydrated.
Take horsegram decotion 60ml daily. It is good to decrease the cholesterol.

Kindly take a gastroenterologist opinion for your abdomen pain. As you need endoscopy to rule out the cause of your pain.
