Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Ms

Diagnosis of Irritable bowel syndrome(IBS) is usually established after thorough investigations and clinical examination have failed to reveal any cause for underlying symptoms.

It would be very helpful if you could provide me with following additional information

1. What are all the investigations done so far?

2.. Do you have any weight loss?

3. Have you been diagnosed with any nutritional deficiency?

4. Do you experience pain while passing stools?

Awaiting your response

Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to liver disease

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms

Sorry for late reply as was busy in OR.
Thanks for providing me the reports. Fatty change in liver is very non specific finding and is likely to be due to many factors. Following could be the reasons

1. Excessive weight gain

2. Consumption of diet containing predominantly fat

3. Consumption of alcohol especially for long duration

Elevated alkaline phosphatase and fatty liver suggest early liver disease.

Do you consume alcohol ?
What is your weight and height?

Brief Answer:
Alcohol and weight could be risk factors

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms

Your body mass index is on higher side, along with that history of intake of alcohol is risk factor for fatty liver.

Regular exercise, weight reduction and complete abstinence from alcohol will be helpful.

My friend, Jay has a son, Jimmy, age 8, and is well-nourished so she tries to make sure that besides eating healthy that he take a daily child’s multivitamin/mineral pill that also includes 10 mg of iron. She’s particularly concerned that he get enough iron because she’s read that iron-deficiency anemia is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in children. Therefore, she also gives him an additional iron supplement containing 30 mg of iron that was given to her at the health clinic to take because her hemoglobin levels were low. At Jimmy’s latest health check-up, the pediatrician notices that his growth rate has decreased since his check-up last year and is now below average for his age, and Mrs. Jones reports that Jimmy’s appetite has decreased lately and he hasn’t been eating as much. When closely questioned by the physician, Mrs. Jones tells him about the supplements she’s been giving her son. The doctor feels that Jimmy is indeed suffering from a nutritional deficiency, but it isn’t iron!

Any suggestions or advise how to get rid of that swelling and redness? Thank you
