I don't have a gallbladder and am experiencing heartburn and diarrhea. What are some natural remedies to help with this?

Try small meals: You may try to eat small meals and more often to buffer the effect of the bile, which may be causing the acid reflux and diarrhea. Your symptoms may improve after a week or so, if you notice no improvement you should contact the surgeon who removed your gallbladder

Loose Stools (Definition)

Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet.

I recently started taking janumet (sitagliptin and metformin) for diabetes and I have had ridiculous heartburn and diarrhea. My doctor advised me to take it once a day with food.

Yes: The medication that you were prescribed can certainly cause these symptoms and some people. Please talk to your health care provider about perhaps starting with just half a pill each day

Immediately after having unprotected sex with a new partner, I had heartburn, nausea and diarrhea, are these early symptoms of stds?

Immediately after having unprotected sex with a new partner, I had heartburn, nausea and diarrhea, are these early symptoms of stds?

Too soon to worry: There is no STD that causes symptoms immediately upon contact with such new STD germs. Germs take time to grow and multiply... and then cause bodily damage that is experienced as signs and symptoms of an infection. Couples should talk about their STDs or lack of STDs, before doing their sexual activities. Otherwise, it's "after the fact".

Xanax 0.25 mg is a small dose for moderate Anxiety. Anxiety can be due to stresses of relationship, marriage, separation, work and finances for which Therapy will benefit you, see a Psychiatrist.

Period 2 weeks late, sore breasts, fatigue, heartburn, diarrhea, gassy, cramping for 3 weeks, milky discharge. Tubes tied (filshie clips).

Rule out pregnancy: As tubal ligation is not 100% effective, it is best to rule out pregnancy right away. If this is negative, there may be other reasons for the symptoms and you should see your doctor. However, please take a pregnancy test!

I have epigasrtic pain wih headache and heartburn with flatulence and diarrhea what tha diagnosis?

I have epigasrtic pain wih headache and heartburn with flatulence and diarrhea what tha diagnosis?

Impossible: It's impossible to give a definite diagnosis based on one sentence. However, I can certainly give a differential diagnosis. You could have esophageal reflux, an ulcer (esophageal, gastric or duodenal), pancreatitis, gallstones, cholecystitis, gastroenteritis (viral, bacterial or parasite), or even some kind of malignancy (which is NOT likely). You SHOULD see your healthcare provider ASAP.

8 days late on my period. I was intimate two weeks ago exactly today. I am under stress but I always am. Heartburn, mood swings, and diarrhea?

8 days late on my period. I was intimate two weeks ago exactly today. I am under stress but I always am. Heartburn, mood swings, and diarrhea?

It COULD be!: Hi. It's certainly possible! Please use birth control! Unintended pregnancy in a 16 year old is not good for the mother or the baby! Do a pregnancy test, or see your doctor. For your and the baby's sake, I hope you're not. Good luck.

I have TMJ and my front teeth are long and sharp. If one cannot chew their food all the way, is it easier to get heartburn, acid reflux or diarrhea?

I have TMJ and my front teeth are long and sharp. If one cannot chew their food all the way, is it easier to get heartburn, acid reflux or diarrhea?

Yup!: Adequate chewing is essential for digestion to work optimally. In fact, the time spent chewing exposes food to saliva. The components of healthy saliva actually are the first stages of the digestion process. That's one reason to maintain oral health. Even if your unable to "chew" due to jaw or dental or gum problems, do hold the minced food in your mouth and allow it time to interact with saliva.
