Hello Selvi, Thank you for the question,
Have you consulted the doctor who is treating you again? Without an examination by a doctor directly, it is not possible to find out the cause of your complaint. Your doctor needs to examine you to determine whether weight loss is related to heartburn or other medical conditions.
Heartburn is a collection of symptoms caused by disorders of the digestive tract. Symptoms that can occur in the form of burning or burning sensation in the pit of the stomach, full satiety, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, frequent belching, reflux, or diarrhea. Some of the causes of heartburn are gastritis, peptic ulcers, gastric acid disease, pancreatitis, intestinal obstruction, gastric cancer, side effects of taking antibiotics or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, side effects of consuming spicy, acidic and oily foods, side effects of consuming caffeinated beverages , fizzy, and alcoholic, smoking, high stress levels, and others. However, you also need to know that diarrhea is not only a part of heartburn but can also be caused by intestinal infections, disorders of absorption of the digestive tract for example due to lactose intolerance, inflammation of the intestine, and others.
The drastic weight loss that you experience really needs to be explored further whether this condition is related to heartburn or because of other conditions. Therefore, I encourage you to immediately consult a specialist in internal medicine directly. The doctor needs to ask further about this complaint to find out whether the weight loss is caused by a lack of food intake due to stomach ulcers that you experience, impaired absorption of the digestive tract, or due to other medical conditions such as tuberculosis, HIV, hypertitoidism. The doctor also needs to examine you, and perform other examinations such as blood tests, ultrasound, CT scan, endoscopy, and others. From this examination, the doctor will find out the cause and determine the next appropriate treatment.
Please do the following suggestions:
while maintaining food intake, try consuming food in small portions but more often
avoid consuming food in large portions
multiply the consumption of foods with balanced nutrition including vegetables and fruits
avoid consuming spicy, sour and oily foods
avoid consuming caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks
avoid consuming food and drinks whose hygiene is not maintained
always wash your hands before eating
Hopefully this information is useful.
