Diet is possible

Liver
I had a young patient whose stool was light yellow, He did not feel ill, and his mood was quite mellow, And after much testing and wringing of hands, We found he ate way too much crackers of Graham! True story.

What foods aggravate stomach ulcers and/or gall bladder problems?

Different ones

Bladder_problems
Stomach ulcer symptoms are made worse by lack of food in the stomach & made worse with alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, etc. Often eating some food improves ulcer symptoms. Opposite in gallbladder conditon, as eating fried, fatty & greasy foods causes gallbladder symptoms to get worse.

Dr. Ryan Taylor answered:

Will a CT scan show gallstones/ other gall bladder problems as well as stomach ulcers? What about a urine and blood test?

Yes and no

Stomach
CT is fairly good at evaluating the gallbladder for stones or infection/inflammation. It is poor at evaluating the stomach for ulcers. This typically requires an upper endoscopy.

Can diverticulitis cause headache nausea and belching. I have these a lot.Have diverticulosis, ulcers, hiatal hernia. Gallblader was 33% on hida scan.

Nausea & belching

Peptic_ulcers
more likely come from ulcers & hiatal hernia than from diverticulosis. Ejection fraction on HIDA scan varies according to source: some give 30-35%; others give 35-75%. R U being treated for the ulcers & probable reflux from hiatal hernia? If not, see doc for Rx: H2 blockers like Zantac or better, proton pump inhibitors like prilosec/Prevacid/Protonix; dos may also Rx 1 of those + 2 antibiotics.

Dr. William Newton answered:

What kinda of pain does an stomach ulcers cause? And how do you get a stomach ulcer?

Lower chest/abdomen

Stomach_ulcer
Pain can be in the mid to lower chest and upper abdomen. It can be worsened with eating or sometimes even improve initially with eating. Ulcers are formed when the lining of the stomach becomes prone to acids and a sore results on the wall of the stomach. There are several causes from meds to stress and diet. Dark tarry stool is a warning sign of bleeding that may come from the GI system.

GI test show diverticulosis and peptic ulcers. Hida showed 33%.Have diarrhea after eating and headaches. Which one could cause the diarrhea/headaches?

Not sure?

Diverticular_diseases
Divericulosis can sometimes cause diarrhea/constipation if they become infected(diverticulitis), but it is unlikely to cause headaches. likewise with gallbladder dysfunction(your HIDA EF was 33% which is a little low and may indicate that your function is abnormal) as it can sometimes result in diarrhea after eating.
