Treatment of gastritis

A gastritis is the acute or chronic inflammation of the mucoid layer of the stomach, causing the disturbance in functioning of this organ. There exists the gastritis with hypo-, normal and hyperacidicity of the stomach. Nowadays, the gastritis is already called as the disease of the century. People suffer from the gastritis at any age. And according to the health statistics, more than half of the population of our country suffers from some form of the gastritis. With gastritis, the food is badly digested in the stomach, leading to exhaustion.

CAUSES FOR APPEARANCE OF GASTRITIS

There are quite many causes of the gastritis. The main are:

  • malnutrition, which includes bad chewing of the food, consumption of low quality products, large amount of spicy and marinated food as well as rare consumption of hot meal;
  • breakfasts and snacks on the go;
  • failure to adhere the nutrition regime;
  • overeating before going to bed;
  • intake of medications, irritating the mucous membrane of the stomach (sulfanilamide, antibiotics etc.);
  • bad habits;
  • intoxication, caused by kidney diseases;
  • hereditary predisposition;
  • chronic fatigue;
  • frequent and heavy stresses (one of the main causes of the gastritis).

In most cases, the causative agent of the gastritis is the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, which infects the stomach and dissolves its protective mucosa, as the result of which the gastric acid gets on the mucous membrane, causes it burn, inflammation and formation of ulcers. This bacterium also produces the toxin, causing the death of cells of the stomach.

SYMPTOMS OF THE GASTRITIS

A gastritis is usually characterized by such symptoms:

  • nagging or acute pain in the upper section of the stomach;
  • unpleasant feeling of stomach fullness after eating;
  • discomfort in stomach: sensation of heaviness and distention;

  • bad breath;
  • loss of appetite;
  • body weight loss;
  • indigestion.
