Hi, many thanks for the query!
You haven't mentioned reports of the blood test that you had few weeks ago.
Nothing much to worry, you should do- RFT, USG KUB, Urine (R/M) to know more about, if someone told you that you have, a kidney problem.
Also do Stool (Culture & Microscopy), CBC, ESR & get physically examined for the lump in throat, whether these are enlarged lymph nodes or what. After examination, if necessary, do FNAC of the lump to know histopathological diagnosis.
For Umbilical hernia, you need to get operated, if fit.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.

Hi. This needs evaluating with upper and lower endoscopy, a screen for H pylori (the so-called ulcer bug), and a stool sample sent to the lab. Possibilities here include irritable bowel syndrome, an H pylori infection, and a malabsorption condition like celiac disorder.
