Flush Gallstones and ease out from Gallstone Attack

What Are Gallstones? 


    The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ just beneath the liver. It stores bile, the fat digestive juice of liver. The bile is released through a tube called the common bile duct which connects both the liver and the gallbladder to the small intestine. If this passage of bile is blocked then the gallbladder is in trouble. That is caused by a gallstone. Gallstones are the harder substances in bile. Gallstone attacks usually happen after you eat and it can be of any size.

Different Gallstones:

There are two types of gallstones:
1) Cholesterol stones:
They are formed because of too much cholesterol in the bile

They are formed when there is excess bilirubin in the bile.

  • Obesity
  • Diarrhea, both acute and chronic
  • Colon cancer

Get Rid of Hernia with Tension Free Hernia Repair Treatment

Hernia is a condition where the tissues or internal organs bulges out through the wall of skin enclosing it. This cannot be cured with medications and needs to be removed surgically. The advancement in technology has put forward a tension free hernia repair method which has become a standard procedure in treatment of hernia. 


Tension free hernia repair as a treatment of hernia, is done with the goal of providing an effective and successful cure for the patient with the lowest post-operative and operative discomfort. It also assures lowest recurrence rate. The patients can return to their normal life routines within a day of the procedure.


Types of Hernia


 Hernia Repair Procedure

The procedure of hernia repair is carried out after administering spinal anaesthesia. The surgeon creates an incision of about 6cm over the location of hernia to place a loop of bowel or fatty lump of tissue into the abdomen. A mesh is attached to the weaker parts of abdominal walls to strengthen them. 

The procedure makes use of a fine, sterile and inert mesh for bridging the hernia defect, in place of the conventional method of sewing together the sides of incisions with stitches. Since the muscle tissues are not sewn together, the tension caused due to the stitches can be eliminated in this method. 


Advantages of Hernia Repair

The procedure is quick, painless, easy with very less or no discomfort present after the procedure. The healing is done so quick that the patient can virtually walk out of the operation theatre. The procedure does not demand the need of prolonged hospitalisation. The recovery period is fairly small and do not require bed rest. The main advantage of tension free hernia repair is that it can be performed on all, irrespective of their age.

WEIGHTLOSS IS NOW A REALITY

Obesity is a widespread phenomenon in today’s world. It is caused as a product of our unhealthy eating habits and considered to be a lifestyle disease. When controlled diet and regular exercise fail to bring an effect people go for bariatric surgery for losing weight. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a popular bariatric surgery method.
The main concept of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is to restrict the amount of food that the stomach can hold. This is brought about by restricting a part of the stomach thereby reducing its volume and quantity of food consumed at a time. Unlike other bariatric surgery procedures, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy does not lead to malabsorption. Thus, it does not cause deficiency of nutrients in patients.


Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is conducted as a standalone procedure or as a step of multi stage procedure in severe cases. The procedure limits food consumption by satisfying hunger quickly. The restricted stomach provides a feeling of fullness even with intake of small quantity of food. It reduces the production of hunger hormone as well.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a laparoscopic bariatric surgery procedure. It is minimally invasive and requires about four or five small incisions in the abdominal area for inserting the laparoscope and other instruments needed for the surgery.
The surgery is done by removing a portion (about 75%) of stomach and leaving behind a narrow portion of tube or sleeve. Intestines are not bypassed or removed. The procedure takes about an hour to complete.
The advantages of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy include a very small recovery time, improvement in obesity related ailments, lack of foreign body issues like in other forms of bariatric surgery, decreased appetite and so on. The procedure helps to decrease about 70% of the unwanted weight during the first year after surgery. This procedure does not have complications associated with surgeries as well.

http://www.vikramsclinic.com/abdominal-bloating.html

  • Intolerance to dairy products
  • Eating too fast
  • Weight gain
  • Overgrowth of bacteria in the small bowel

Abdominal bloating can be prevented or its severity can be reduced by following few simple things like not chewing gum as it leads to swallowing of extra air which leads to bloating. Avoiding the intake of carbonated drinks, gassy foods and a few vegetables such as cabbage, dried beans and lentils reduces the effect of abdominal bloating.
