Gastroenterology/Early morning nausea.


Hi Doctor.
I work from 5pm to 1 am. Started this shift a few months ago.Very busy with no time to eat, so I have a meal when I get home. I have been getting nausea about 7 am every morning, usually the severity is based on the amount of food I ate. Do you think it is acid reflux? I am currently taking Losec for that. Should I get a stronger prescription or try something else? Of course the best thing would be to not eat-but I am very hungry when I get home. The only other thing I can think of is a blood sugar issue, but I dont have diabetes, or any blood sugar issues I know of. Thanks for your thoughts!

Dear Bud,

I don know what is your age and health, what do you it at night?
What I do know, taking acid suppressors is not beneficial for digestion large meal in the stomach, especially at night. Not properly digested food is fermented by bacteria and rotten. The organism wants to get rid of this toxic mass. Nausea and vomiting is a natural reaction of the irritated stomach to move it out. I presume this eating habits leads to gastritis, as well.

If you will be my patient, I will recommend:
•   Eat during your shift some liquid food such as sour cream, peanut butter, almond or coconut milk, etc. Of course, if you tolerate these products. If you have a time to go to the bathroom, you may find two minutes to drink this liquid product too
•   Take your acid suppressor in the morning or daytime
•   Find proteolytic digestive enzymes and take two capsules with night meal
•   Find probiotics and take double dose at daytime
•   In case of nausea, drink big cup of Chamomile tea
•   Think hard about healthy eating habits

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment.
