Well diet wise you can carry on the same, technically this is the best diet that anybody could have suggested,
Along with this take sucralfate syrup twice daily for 2 weeks after food.
Patient: thanks … it means spilt green grams are safe .. right ?.. i have 1 more question i still have acidity .. why is that ?
Doctor: Some people are prone for more acidity than others.
Could be because of an infection called H Pylori which grows in our stomach more than usual.
Patient: Sir , I was tested negative for h pylori
Doctor: Still, some people have more acidity, so, you have to be more cautious than others.
