Hi I am 30 years male working professional. Offlate (period of 1 month) I have a feeling that my stomach is always full/ bloated up just after eating a very brief Indian meal (roti-1, rice- a small bowl, lentil, chicken curry), and often I dont get any urge for eating another meal in due course. About 4 weeks earlier I had a dysentery and was under antibiotics care (course ended 3 weeks earlier). The problem surfaced after that majorly, but was experiencing the same even before the disease.
My life style doesnt include any major exercise/ work out or any major physical activity like traveling. I am a smoker and occasional drinker (2/3 times in a week upto 4 pegs of rum or 1 bottle of beer).
Is loss of appetite a sign of liver not functioning properly ? or any other concern Please advice.
To offset any effects of the antibiotics, you may want to consider trying some probiotics - the 'good' flora that can be skewed with disease, medication and diet. There are some very good products on the market that include Culturelle, Digestive Advantage-IBS and FloraQ among others.
Loss of appetite is usually more of a stomach issue, but in some cases the functioning of the gallbladder and/or the liver could be a part of it. Only some testing would give you a true answer. Loss of appetite, or feeling full, can come from changes in 'accomodation' in the stomach - the stretching at the top of the stomach and it's relationship to feeling full - or in other cases it can be due to delayed gastric emptying.
