What Causes Elevated Triglyceride Levels While Having Digestion Issues?
Fibre rich food, exercise and dietary change...
Before proceeding with any treatment, I would insist you discuss this issue with your primary doctor when you meet one whenever possible. It is important to know if there is any underlying condition causing indigestion. Sometimes condition like hiatus hernia, H pylori infection, reflux esophagitis or even a gall bladder issue could be the cause of indigestion. These needs to be addressed specifically.
If none of the aforementioned conditions are found, indigestion is to be treated as a chronic condition. It can be addressed well with dietary and lifestyle changes as mentioned below:
1. Including plenty of fibres in the diet. Fruits and vegetables are rich source of fibres. They should be included in plenty.
2. Avoiding hot and spicy food.
3. Restricing caffeine and other aerated drinks
4. Following a strict diet timings will help.
5. Inadding keeping weight under control is a must.
6. Physical exercise is also a must.
7. Lastly if needed a short course of proton pump inhibitor like tab esomeprazole 20mg twice a day for 15 days will benefit you.
As far as triglyceride level is concerned, TGL value of 450 is high. It can be managed with oral fenofibrate drugs. Your treating doctor will know about it.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
How long have you been on these medicines???
How long have you been on these medicines? Did you develop indigestion problem after starting these drugs?
Sometimes drugs are responsible for indigestion. You need to carefully watch if that is your case. That being said, primarily the treatment is to change your diet, lifestyle as well as manage weight. The aforementioned options are some of the changes necessary.
As far as fatty liver is concerned, no there is no medicine available. Or rather I would say, there is no medicine required to treat fatty liver. It is a benign and generally reversible condition. Controlling your lipid values, stopping alcohol if any, weight management as well as dietary changes will help.
Constipation won't be a problem as you start taking plenty of fibres (fruits and vegetables) and drink plenty of fluids. These help in increasing stool bulk and prevent constipation. Medications are hardly necessary then.
Hope I have answered all your queries. If you have any more questions, please ask before closing discussion.
Perhaps medicines may be contributing...
It is possible that these drugs are contributing to your symptoms of indigestion. If all the aforementioned diet + lifestyle measures fail to give you significant relief, then discuss with your treating doctor. Perhaps your doctor may stop the drugs for awhile and see if you get better.
Fatty liver is not caused by short duration smoking or drinking. It is the effects of long terms alcohol consumption, high lipid values, over weight as well as other factors. It is possible that your earlier drinking habit may be a factor leading to fatty liver. Please bare in mind it is just one of the factors. There could be others too.
Nevertheless as I said earlier, it is not a concerning issue. You should stop drinking and practice strict diet and life style options. Over the due course of time, (not in months but few years), fatty liver might reverse / stop progressing.
Hope I am clear.
