Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen all your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity), USG reports, blood reports, serum vitamin D reports. All reports are suggestive to be normal. Vitamin D level is also normal. Most probably you are suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. Kindly follow the following advice:

  1. Stop Calcium and Vitamin D capsule.
  2. Avoid alcohol and smoking, if you are habitual.
  3. Reduce meat and oil products from your meal.
  4. Take a lot of water with green vegetables and salad in the diet.
  5. Increase legume, pulses, and soybean in your diet.
