Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The digestive tract extends from the oral cavity, throat, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, to the anus. Inflammation of the digestive tract can occur in part or all of the digestive tract. It needs to be clarified first, exactly what kind of inflammation of the digestive tract is your husband experiencing?
If what you mean is inflammation of the entire digestive tract, then maybe your husband's condition is caused by Crohn's disease. This disease is part of inflammatory bowel disease which is characterized by a variety of complaints, such as diarrhea, fever, weakness, abdominal pain (including heartburn), bloody stool, recurrent mouth sores, decreased appetite, weight loss which is quite drastic. , pain around the anus, and so on. There is no clear origin of this disease known. However, many literatures state that Crohn's disease occurs due to immune system disorders as well as genetics (heredity). This disease is more prone to occur in smokers, taking long-term NSAIDs, or people who live in industrial environments because they often consume processed foods.
However, not only Crohn's disease, the pain in the gut that your husband experiences can also occur due to other factors, for example GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), gastric ulcers, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), cholelithiasis (gallstones ), pleurisy (inflammation of the lining of the lung), pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma), psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
You should check your husband again with a doctor or an internal medicine specialist if the complaint appears so severe that he doesn't want to eat at all. By assessing the history of the disease and previous examinations, doctors can generally determine the best treatment.
In the meantime, you can first do the following:
Compress your husband's sore heart with warm water. Give your husband comfortable clothes, not too narrow. Elevate your husband's chest and head while resting, for example being propped up with a higher pillow. Feed your husband a little (no need to force too much) Reduce consumption of dairy products or other processed foods, limit fiber (vegetables, fruit, and nuts) Increase consumption of low-fat foods (avoid fried or coconut milk) Avoid spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine Drink lots of Calm your mind, avoid stress or Excessive anxiety Hope it helps ya ..
