Brief Answer:
Gastritis

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Doxy is notorious for causing gastritis, the blood streaked vomit could be because of the forceful vomitus causing superficial micro abrasion.
It is unusual for the vocal cords to tear because of the vomiting as it lies in a completely different track for the body ,the loss of voice is usually because of the pharyngeal involvement while vomiting and it usually improves in 2-3.

Here is what I suggest

1. Tab Omeprazole once before food for 5 days. Best drug would be omeprazole with domperidone combination however that might require a prescription
2. Follow a bland diet
3. Avoid caffeine, milk and milk products
4. Avoid smoking and alcohol

If the symptoms persists please approach your doctor for examination and alternative antibiotic to doxy as you are not tolerating it

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2



What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
