Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Welcome to HCM.
This is Dr. Swarnava Dattagupta answering your query.

I understand your concern.
It looks like a case of irregular food habit and indigestion issues.
First of all, ask him to have a balance over food intake and workout. Also, maintain a proper time to take food and also take small frequent meals. Modify diet. Have more of fruits and dietary fibers. Avoid or limit fatty food.
Now, take tab pantoprazole-domperidon combination once daily before breakfast for 15days.
Modify working out procedures. Its better to go slow at it. Take multivitamin syrup daily.
You can consult your doctor for prescription of the above.

Hope this was helpful.
