Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com, I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
What you have is not protein indigestion. It is acidity related issue probably a reflux disease.
Isolated protein indigestion is not common and it usually occurs with indigestion of other nutrients. I would advise you to get upper GI endoscopy repeated to see the current status of your gastritis.
As you as your symptoms are concerned, in addition to medicine, dietary and lifestyle changes are also important.
1, Avoid alcohol and smoking ( if you have that habit)
2. Avoid coffee, citrus, tomatoes, masala, spicy food and oily food
3. Avoid carbonated beverages, mint and chocolate
4. Weight reduction if obese
5. Avoid large meals and eat multiple smaller meals
Alcohol intake also increases uric acid. So you try to stop alcohol intake to decrease your serum uric acid levels.
I hope that answers your question, would be glad to answer any follow-up queries.
Patient replied :
Pls suggest medication for reflux disease..secondly I use to smoke till oct 2012 ...not my more.
Did u got a chance to look at my reports ..endoscopy ..do u think any other medication was required.? Any comment on medication I took or I should take.
From the reply its more of preventive measures....I m looking to correct this indigestion somehow...does medical science have anything which will help for digestion in my case nd foruric acid. My alcohol intake is pretty less though asi mentioned earlier.
Moreover why I mentioned protein indigestion as mostly vomiting is of non veg or pulses...if it acid reflux ....all other food should cause vomiting as well.may be I m not able to digest protein that's why my uric acid is elevated as well without medicine...just a thought. Pls chi my KFT and LFT asWell
Thanks for getting back to me with more questions.
If it was protein malabsorption, you would have developed fluid accumulation in the body and would have developed selling of the feet and abdomen and not vomiting after intake of certain food.
Yes I saw your test reports. Endoscopy report says you have erosive gastritis and that you are positive for helicobacter pylori and you have taken the right treatment for it.
Not all food causes acid reflux disease. Only some which I have mentioned in my previous post can cause it. Pulses mainly increases gas. Meat especially red meat increase uric acid but does not cause acid reflux. May be the masala/oil/spicy thing you eat along with that is causing the symptoms.
For acid reflux you can take Nexpro L once a day before breakfast for 4-8 weeks and follow the advice which I have mentioned in my previous post.
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
