Lactose intolerance is a common condition that affects up to 61% of the general population.
Lactose is a sugar found in milk. Lactose is broken down into glucose and galactose by the enzyme lactase. If you don't have enough lactase in your body, then you can't break down the lactose into glucose and galactose.
People with lactose intolerance may feel abdominal pain, nausea or cramps after eating foods containing lactose such as milk, ice cream, cheese and yoghurt. Some people have trouble digesting milk from cows; this is called cow's milk allergy (CMA).
The first thing you should know is that colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. Ninety percent of those diagnosed have no symptoms and are diagnosed at an advanced stage.
But there are things you can do to reduce your risk of getting colon cancer. First, don't smoke! Second, don't drink alcohol excessively—alcohol can increase your chances of developing colon cancer by up to 20 times! Third—and this is really important—don't eat red meat frequently or in large amounts. Fourth exercise regularly, as obesity increases the risk of colon cancer.
Meet your Gastroenterologist. He will schedule a colonoscopy for you, which is an excellent tool for screening colon cancers.
Gall stones are common condition which affects millions of people around the world. Gall stones are formed when bile from the liver is not properly stored and concentrated in the gallbladder. Gall stones are hard, solid lumps that form in your gallbladder. They can range in size from small gall stone crystals to centimetre. Majority of the gall stones are asymptomatic.
Gall stones can cause symptoms such as pain or discomfort in your abdomen, nausea, vomiting, and Jaundice (yellowing of skin). Asymptomatic gall stones can be followed up. If symptomatic, it will be treated by removal of gall bladder through laparoscopy.
Sometimes gallstones might migrate down to cause obstruction of the bile duct, which may necessitates an endoscopic procedure called ERCP.
