most common cause of upper gi bleed is peptic ulcer follwed by varices.also u have history of alcohol use and still tenderness is ther in ur stomach. all these giving clue towards peptic ulcer. but you have to rule out other causes also. so better, go for a uppre gi flexible endoscopy after the consultation of a gastroenterologist. simultaneously avoid alcohol,avoid spicy and oily foods take food in time.frequent smaal meals and good amount of water

Hi natalie;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The Gi bleed if it was fresh blood can be from stomach or oesophagus because of ulcer or oesophageal varices.Since you are still having tenderness in stomach it can be a ulcer also.Please follow up with your doctor and take proper medicines as advised so that the internal stomach is healed.Also please avoid wine or any drink which has fizz or contains alcohol.To feel better you can take cold milk so that your stomach tenderness is reduced.Please consult and get treated soon.

tender stomach for 6 days My lower stomach has been bothering me since this past Sundays. I feel bloated and I also have a feeling of fullness. It almost feels like I am always hungry even when I just ate. Then after I eat I feel like I over did it and ate too much when I had normal portions. Today I yawn and it hurts/feels uncomfortable. I am also really gassy. The feeling won t go away. I had a bowel movement so I know I m not constipated.

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.
