(Powered by Yahoo! Answers)

How to understand the entence: "The right kidney is atrophic, but otherwise unremarkable."?

The sentence " The right kidney is atrophic, but otherwise unremarkable" is very difficult to understand.
Does it mean "the right kidney is absolutely atrophic" ?
Or it means " The right kidney is not surely atrophic, for it is not atropohic because it is not clear.
Or is there any other understanding for the sentence ?

unremarkable - in hospital terms means normal. or another way to put it - nothing really to comment about.

atrophic - i.e. atrophy, a wasting away of the body or of an organ as from defective nutrition or nerve damage.

So depending on the age and condition of the patient - older patient, it sounds very normal. If this is a young person, what are you doing to cause your kidney to atrophy?

What are some home remedies for gastritis?

Can coconut water help with gastritis?
Please inform me with all possible home remedies for gastritis.

Coconut water is an excellent remedy for gastritis. It gives the stomach the necessary rest and provides vitamins and minerals. The stomach is greatly helped in returning to a normal condition if nothing but coconut water is given during the first twenty-four hours.

Aloe Vera has been shown to be effective with digestive problems. Aloe Vera contains gibberlin and polysaccharides, which effectively decrease inflammation and promote healing. Aloe Vera is an effective pain reliever because it contains salicylic acid, the same pain killing agent found in aspirin. It also contains magnesium which helps prevent the damaging side effects of aspirin-type medications.
Get a good quality Aloe Vera juice either online or at a health food store.

Gastritis in many patients may also be helped by several amino acids given as supplements. The results of a scientific study, where dosages of cysteine at 200 mg’s was administered, 4 times a day to fifty-six people, who had bleeding gastritis brought on by the use of some NSAIDs- non steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, like aspirin, looks promising as a potential treatment option. The recovery from and healing of the damage brought by gastritis may be possible through cysteine which is an essential amino acid that is rich in sulfur. Preliminary results from another study showed that 1 to 4 grams a derivative of N-acetyl cysteine if administered to individuals with the atrophic form of gastritis for a period of 4 weeks seemed to increase the rate of healing and recovery. The gastric cellular structure and the cells themselves depend partly on glutamine as a major source of energy; its other property may be an ability to increase the flow of blood to the area. The results of supplementing the diet of burn victims with the amino acid glutamine, showed that the development of stress ulcers was reduced, even after repeated operations and so this amino acid hold some promise as a possible treatment option. To what extent glutamine supplementation in cases of gastritis acts in preventing or in aiding the existing conditions of the disease remains unclear and is a largely speculative option. The protection of the stomach and an increased blood flow in the stomach has been suggested in evidence from preliminary research done on the possible utilization of the amino acid L-arginine as a treatment option; however the effects arginine has on people with gastritis remains to be investigated.  (+ info)

What foods are good to eat when you have gastritis?

I have chronic gastritis where I will suddenly get it and cant eat for days or get nauseous for days. Iam currently taking nexium but Im still feeling pain. What can I eat that wont hurt my stomach? Thanks!

Coconut water is an excellent remedy for gastritis. It gives the stomach the necessary rest and provides vitamins and minerals. The stomach is greatly helped if nothing but coconut water is given during the first twenty-four hours.

Rice gruel is another excellent remedy for acute cases. One cup of rice gruel is recommended twice daily. In chronic cases where the flow of gastric juice is meagre, such foods as require prolonged vigorous mastication are beneficial as they induce a greater flow of gastric juice.

Potato juice has been found valuable in relieving gastritis. The recommended dose is half a cup of the juice, two or three times daily, half an hour before meals.

The herb marigold is also considered beneficial in the treatment of gastritis. An infusion of the herb in doses of a tablespoon may be taken twice daily.
