Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I eat out a lot and take junk food very frequently. I am suffering from acidity now. If I take spicy food, I feel uneasiness in my stomach. I am a 25 year old male. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please consider the following suggestions to get rid of your acidity:

  • Avoid eating out.
  • Also avoid oily, spicy and fried food items.
  • Drink plenty of water (at least eight glasses of water every day).
  • Drink two glasses of water in the morning as soon as you wake up (on empty stomach).
  • Take more of cold milk, buttermilk, and curd.
  • Take tablet Pantoprazole 40 mg once daily in the morning before food.
