Peptic Ulcer - 6 Reasons Behind it

Peptic Ulcer - 6 Reasons Behind it

There may be times when we get completely drained and fatigued and may feel like our insides could jump out because of the pain that we have in our stomachs. We may dismiss the issue as unimportant or due to a stressful day at work, and may think the stomach pain could be because of the extra spicy food we love to have every once in a while. However, a lot of people may tend to ignore this symptom and that is when stomach ache may turn out to be actually because of a peptic ulcer.

Peptic ulcer or stomach ulcer is a common occurrence and happens to a lot of people; however, it must be understood that not treating the problem in time may be troublesome in the long run and increase the recovery time. In order to be able to identify the peptic ulcers and to take the right treatment measures, it may be important for you to understand the problem and know how it is caused, and how it may be treated.

What causes peptic ulcers?
A peptic ulcer is diagnosed as inflammatory sores on the lining of the stomach or the food pipe, which transfers food to the stomach or even in the intestine. There are a number of factors that can cause inflammatory sores in the stomach region. The factors are as follows:

  1. The use of medicines that are meant to be painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs. The acid levels of the stomach and the food pipe may get disturbed because of these medicines and may give rise to ulcers.
  2. In a lot of cases, the ulcers may also take place because of the presence of a tumour or a gastrinoma in the stomach that imbalance the levels of acid in the stomach.
  3. High alcohol consumption may also lead to the formation of sores on the stomach lining.
  4. Using tobacco or smoking are some other factors that contribute to the acid imbalance in the stomach.
  5. In the case of some serious illnesses, a lot of people may fall prey to peptic ulcers.
  6. Those who may have undergone radiation treatment around the stomach may also experience ulcers.

Though it may be known that excessive pain in the abdominal region may be due to stomach ulcers, it is important to understand that it happens due to bacterial infections, and when there is a bacterial infection in the body, you may have to undergo proper treatment. The treatment for this problem includes the use of medications as suggested by a qualified doctor, surgery in some severe cases, and most importantly lifestyle changes.

Hepatitis B is a viral disease spread through blood products and sexual contacts. first get your partener's blood cheched for hepatitis B. USE condom every time. As for medical treatment you get cured with antiviral drugs. But the treatment must be monitored by MD medicine doctor. treatment takes about 4-5 years continuosly.

Dear lybrate-user. If the fissure is recurrent than you should undergo sugery. It's a small surgery which can be done as day care surgery. 1 to 2 days of rest is enough and total recovery time is 5 to 7 days.

I HAVE ULCERS IN MY STOMACH AND DUDUONEM and I'm taking zintec150 and pantapozole tablets but usse koi farak nahi to btayie ab main kya karu.

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
Ulcers in stomach is common occurrence nowadays. But if you are not responding to treatment then you may have to undergo endoscopy to confirm diagnosis. Alternatively you can continue treatment for few days more. Peptic ulcer responds well to latest anti-ulcer drugs. Concurrently you will have to stop tea-coffee-alcohol, spicy food, and lead a quiet life. Weekly rest for two days is also essential. Try a second opinion also.

Ulcerative colitis causes, Reason for disease and Treatment? Can effect this disease in Reproductive health?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The cause of this condition is unknown. Researchers no longer believe that stress is the cause. Today, research focuses on the immune system and heredity for possible causes. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic condition. Treatment usually involves drug therapy or surgery. The goal of treatment is to reduce the inflammation that causes your symptoms. Some ulcerative colitis medications can affect fertility. Men who take azulfidine (sulfasalazine) to treat ulcerative colitis might find that their sperm count or sperm function is negatively affected. These symptoms generally cease after the medication is stopped. However, it's possible for pregnancy to occur even if a man is on sulfasalazine, but it's still an important caveat. Your sex drive might be decreased. Medications such as prednisone can negatively affect sex drive. Additionally, ulcerative colitis can make one feel fatigued, weak, and simply not in the mood for sex.

I am 28 years male I have been suffering from gargling sound in my stomach with stomach upset for almost 2 months, which I was not understanding why it is happening. Initially I had bleeding in my stool as I have a lump around my anus which indicate piles but not sure whether bleeding come, because of piles or anything else as I had lots of spice food consistently 2 days before of this problem and started bleeding for another 2 days and then go away. And I have chronic constipation problem and I was using isabghol to cure my constipation which really helped to cure it. But since the time this gargling sound started in my stomach I started to worry more and I used so many medicine prescribed by Dr. but did not work.. So Dr. prescribed me to start Isabghol again. And I started to use isabghol which helped passing stool very smoothly, but still gargling sound was coming from stomach and after couple of days I realized I have started loose motion with fluffy/mushy soft stool and feeling weak/weight loss because of taking extra fiber. And yesterday I decided to take Norflox TZ which I usually take since my childhood to cure loose motion and thanks to God I observed its relaxed me, But I just wanted to know can I take Norflox TZ with Neksium 40 and normaxin RT which was recently prescribed by my Dr. to cure acid reflux and stomach ache.

Is the bloating due to milk? if yes you have lactose intolerance and you would want to use alternative forms of calcium supplementation. If the bloating is not related to drinking milk and you have it after eating everything else then you can drink milk. Just lower junk food and spicy food. Lower your oil intake. Use oil which are rich in good fatty acids. Add more vegetables and eat mostly the seasonal fruits.

I have known gall bladder stones, but it is not paining, so do I need to take treatment for that.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
I have known gall bladder stones, but it is not paining, so do I need to take treatment for that.
If Gallstones are formed in Gallbladder, Yes! it should be removed as it can be removed with medicines only, there is no need to undergo surgery or operations you can connect with and I can provide you with treatment by which you can get cured with our medicines only. The medicines are combination of herbal and homeopathic only. I will suggest you to avoid surgery there is no need of it. You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones.

Bleeding while passing stole, no pain or any other symptoms what should I do? What can be the reason for bleeding?

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS, FICS
General Surgeon, Delhi
It looks like you have piles. However there is nothing to worry. Piles are treated with diet modifications and some medicine in more than 90% cases. You must avoid constipation. Take plenty of fibre, fruits and fluids. Avoid non-veg, fried and spicy food. Take extra fibre like isafgole with water as a dietary supplement twice a day. In case bleeding persists have yourself examined by a surgeon. Thanks and god bless.
