Dr. Sunil: This is the third time in two months you have come to me complaining of stomach ache, Rakesh. Have you been eating frequently from outside?
Rakesh: I have my lunch from the school canteen, doctor.
Dr. Sunil: How is the food in taste and appearance?
Rakesh: The food tastes good, except that it is spicy sometimes. Often, it is soaked in excess oil.
Dr. Sunil: No wonder you are falling sick so often, Rakesh! Eating spicy food regularly upsets your digestive system. Does the oil in the food smell abnormal?
Rakesh: I don’t know really. But yes, my throat often aches after eating a meal that had excess oil.
Dr. Sunil: That is due to the poor quality of oil being used to make the food. Rakesh, you should stop eating from the canteen at once. If possible, eat home-cooked food and for a few weeks only eat light meals.
Rakesh: Okay, doctor. What can I include in my diet for the next few days?
Dr. Sunil: Have home-cooked food with minimum spices. Avoid over-intake of fibrous foods as they are heavy to digest. Have plenty of water and fruit. In a couple of weeks, your system will be back to normal.
Rakesh: Thank you, Doctor. I will avoid eating from outside henceforth.
Dr. Sunil: Yes, you should. Here are your medicines. In addition, please also engage in light exercise once a day so that you remain fit.
Rakesh: I will do that, doctor. Thank you for your time and consultation.
Dr. Sunil: Take care and get well soon Rakesh!
