Hiatal hernia

Postby DGA » Fri May 19, 2017 2:11 pm

I have one of these now. Not a big one. I'd like to prevent it from growing.

I don't have any reflux issues, thankfully, and that's a problem I'd like to prevent.

I know I need to lose about 15lbs (7 kilos).

Any other general suggestions?

Diet and lifestyle can have a massive impact.

I admit my life is much more sedentary of late than I would like it to be. I have a long commute and a desk job. This means most of my time is spent seated. With an infant in the house, it hasn't been easy to find time for exercise and sleep. Hence the weight gain. Now that the little one is almost a year old, I hope that will change.

Bless you my friend, I know how you feel. During those early years I relied heavily on caffeine to get through the day. It is difficult and I know its a cliché, but it does get easier... although expect the odd curve ball here and there :tongue:

Have you had an allergy test? I know it may sound strange, but it can also be a causal factor or can aggravate it.

Yes, I was tested for all kinds of food allergies, and luckily I'm not allergic to any foods (pollen and mold, however...). I'm waiting for the results of some other tests, one of them to find out if I have celiac disease, which I strongly doubt.

Don't strain on the pot. It increases intra-abdominal pressure which is exactly what you don't want more of. And be quick about your business.

:toilet:

All I've got off the top of my head. I wish you luck managing it.
