coping with a sensitive stomach

musim makan-makan dh kembali. dalam sedap2 makan tu actually im suffering with the sensitive stomach. sejak sekolah2 lagi dh kene. mkn pedas sikit..x masak ke mulalah kene cherry berry or diarrhea. Nama je org negeri sembilan, tp mmg x mkn pedas langsung..kecuali yang sendiri masak. x sanggup rasenya berumahtangga di toilet tgh2 mlm buta. byk dh tragedi hitam tu terjadi huhu..sekali kene sampai 8 kali ke toilet..seksa sgguh. so ape kita boleh buat. dh org ajak takkan nk tolak. lps tu dh org lain mkn takkan nk pandang je kan..dlm byk2 article..yg ni interesting..dier kata yang penting plan ahead..

Most people look forward to picnics, parties, or intimate meals out. But if you have a sensitive stomach, you may find yourself turning down invitations rather than risking stomach pain and a bout of diarrhea.
Sensitive stomach

It doesn’t have to be that way, says Lawrence Schiller, MD, program director of the gastroenterology fellowship at Digestive Health Associates of Texas at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and vice president of the American College of Gastroenterology. With some planning and consideration, you can share meals with friends and family without upsetting your sensitive stomach.

Sensitive Stomach: Plan Ahead

When friends suggest a place for dinner, log onto the Internet to review the menu online. If you don’t see anything you could order without risking stomach upset, suggest a different restaurant to your companions. Or call the restaurant and find out if the chef could accommodate your needs by making a dish that isn’t spicy or fried and is safe for your sensitive stomach.

If you are invited to someone’s home, ask if you can bring something, and make sure your dish is something you can safely eat. If you know that the food being prepared may cause you stomach pain, eat before you go, and just politely nibble on foods that you know won’t result in stomach gas or diarrhea.

Before you leave the house, you might take an over-the-counter antidiarrheal medication such as loperamide (Imodium) or bismuth subsalicylate (such as Pepto-Bismol). “These medications work best ahead of time,” Dr. Schiller says. “So if you know you’re going to eat a meal that is likely to cause you to have diarrhea, take the antidiarrheal before eating. It will slow down the progress of the meal through your intestine and delay or prevent diarrhea.” If you find that foods containing lactose bring on diarrhea, taking lactase enzymes (Lactaid) ahead of time often helps.

Another tip for eating out: Be aware of where you sit. Being seated close to a bathroom will likely raise your comfort level.

Sensitive Stomach: Know Your Diarrhea Triggers

To find out what your triggers are, keep a food diary. Then when you have a bout of diarrhea, look to see what you ate and cut out all suspected foods from your diet. “Add possible trigger foods back one by one to see which cause you problems,” Schiller says. In some cases, not only what you eat but also the amount you eat may be causing your diarrhea, so note the quantities as well.

Everyone’s triggers can be different, but the following groups of food can commonly cause stomach pain, stomach gas, and diarrhea: dairy products, foods with high fat content, spicy foods, foods that contain artificial sweeteners, and especially rich foods. Foods activate your gastrocolic reflex — the natural downward movement of foods through the intestine &mdash triggered by the presence of food in the stomach. “Rich foods are especially likely to trigger this reflex. This may explain why people with sensitive stomachs are likely to have more problems when they dine at restaurants,” says Schiller.

The beverages you drink while socializing may also be the cause of your condition. Many people find that drinking alcohol and caffeine causes them to have diarrhea. Remember that in addition to coffee, caffeine is found in tea, cola, and chocolate. Strive to enjoy get-togethers without consuming too many of these beverages, and you’ll be less stressed about having stomach pain.

Sensitive Stomach: How to Eat

Discover other helpful habits that will keep your stomach calmer:

Take your time. Eat slowly. If you gulp down your food, you may swallow more air, which can cause gas. Also, chewing your food thoroughly makes it easier for your stomach to digest it; the enzymes in your saliva help break down the food before it enters the stomach and intestinal tract. If you wear dentures, make sure they fit properly so that you’re not swallowing too much air with every bite.

Eat on a schedule. Don’t skip meals for one big dinner later in the day. By the time you finally eat, you’ll be so hungry that you’ll wolf down too much at once, and consuming a heavy meal is harder on your digestive system. If you’re going out to dinner and the reservation is for much later than your normal mealtime, have a small meal at your regular time to hold you over. Eating on a schedule also helps regulate your bowels.

You don’t have to let your sensitive stomach stop you from dining out and enjoying other gatherings if you plan ahead and order wisely. However, if your stomach pain persists or worsens, be sure to talk to your doctor for possible treatments.

farewell my friend

Bitterly cold weather sweeping across Europe. the chilling temperatures would remain into next week.
welcome to the new family members of customs, mr faizal and family. thank you for bringing the snow along..

my weeks has been full with foods. its time again to bid for a farewell..i really hate to say good bye.

Next week, Im gonna lose a really dearest closest good friend of mine, more than that she was like family to me. she like to do small things to cheer me up, call me everyday and talk for hours and tell jokes that i will never forget.
I will miss her presence in my life, her laughter, her passion, her cat and her hand bags collections;). thanks for everything oma..

Living abroad really teach me how to appreciate a friendship. i am bless for having my friends arround while im here all alone through my ups and down. THANKS FRIENDS

Farewell in your ventures
Our spent time is my treasure
Your heart must wander to where it belongs
Friend, I only urge you to be strong
With love you can simply do no wrong
I say it with these words tipping off my tongue

Farewell, farewell my friend
I am a great believer
Farewell is not forever
I say not goodbye
I do not wish to sit and cry

Farewell, farewell my friend
What else can I say?
You weren’t meant to stay
I will do nothing to detain
You from flying on that plane

Farewell, farewell my friend
I say with pain
Farewell, farewell my friend
In sunshine or in rain
One day, one day
I know we’ll see again

Farewell, farewell my friend
I cannot stand and pretend
That a part me
With you, would still like to be!
