Causes Of Frequent Vomiting Yellow Color?
Every day I often vomit yellow, and chest tightness. This happened after I came home from hospitalization and was advised to take several kinds of medicine. Incidentally, I have a history of diabetes, but the diabetes is normal. It’s been checked and irradiated internal organs appear normal. But now you often vomit yellow? and tightness and swelling of the legs. And feel nauseous when taking the recommended drugs. Please guide, what is the cause, and what should I do next? Thank you 🙂
Hi Vela Jr,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified beforehand, what drugs are you currently taking? What caused you to have to undergo hospitalization before? Do you have a history of other diseases besides diabetes?
Some types of drugs that are often prescribed by doctors to control diabetes, such as biguanides or sulfonylureas can trigger an increase in stomach acid in sensitive people. This condition can be manifested as nausea, vomiting, and shortness of breath. The yellow vomiting may occur due to acid in the stomach that comes out or it could be a side effect of the medicine.
In addition to the side effects of the medicine, the vomiting and shortness of breath that you experience can also occur due to other conditions, for example:
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
Impaired kidney function
Viral or bacterial infections, and so on
Swelling in your legs, apart from being a sign of impaired kidney function that is often experienced by diabetics, can also occur due to:
Skin infections (common also experienced by diabetics due to immune system deficits and peripheral nerve damage)
Arthritis (arthritis), for example due to rheumatism, gout, osteoarthritis
Varicose veins (swollen leg veins)
Hypertension (high blood pressure), and so on
We recommend that you check your condition directly with a specialist in internal medicine for a thorough evaluation. Usually, in addition to a physical examination, the doctor will also carry out further examinations, ranging from blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on. If it is true that the complaint is purely triggered by side effects of the drug, the doctor can prescribe additional drugs or may also provide other alternative therapies.
Eat regularly little by little but often
When you feel nauseous and short of breath, first reduce foods that contain a lot of gas, too sour, too spicy, and coconut milk
Do a good diet for diabetics, namely reducing simple carbohydrates, reducing high-calorie foods, increasing vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
Reduce salt to minimize swelling in the feet
Cut down on caffeine
Don't lie down immediately after eating
Elevate swollen legs when sleeping, you can hang them or support them using a higher pillow
Avoid using high heels or shoes that are too narrow
Keep your feet clean
Hope it helps ya..
