Hello doctor,

I am 43-year-old male suffering from stomach bloating and gas problems after every diet for the last fifteen months. Usually, I take a normal quantity of food of my age. I play badminton weekly for six days for two hours and use to drink plenty of water daily. I do not have sugar, blood pressure, or any other illnesses reported or diagnosed with so far. Every night after food, I am taking Triphala Churna five tablets. If I do not take this tablet on a given day, it will completely block the next day's stool. Every day, I take three garlic cloves before bed and one glass of jeera water on an empty stomach in the early morning. Once a week, I cleanse my stomach by taking one and a half glasses of salt water. The above methodology I followed after consulting with doctors and took various allopathic medicines and even tried other supplements like laxatives, probiotics, etc. Nothing helped to reduce my bloating or gas formation problem.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do not worry. You may be suffering from irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C). Use a high-fiber diet with fruits and vegetables, avoid milk products, caffeinated drinks, and alcohol. Use tablet Normaxin (Chlordiazepoxide + Clidinium Bromide) twice a day for five days. Avoid gluten and lactose-containing food. If symptoms not improved, please consult with your physician. He will examine and treat you accordingly.

Thank you doctor,

I will follow your advice. I need to clarify does my symptoms show that I am affected by colon cancer, or will there be any problems in the future?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No dear color malignancy may be present as there are blood in stools, and there may be weight loss and pain abdomen in few cases. At this age, colon cancer is significantly less, and the possibility of inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome, or food intolerance can occur. So you can get a colonoscopy done once and review with reports.
