Gastritis - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is Gastritis?

the stomachs lining gets inflamed, irritated, or eroded in gastritis. It may either happen gradually or suddenly. Excess alcohol consumption, chronic vomiting, anxiety, stress, certain medicines like aspirin can all cause gastritis.

The following may cause gastritis as well:

  • H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori) - It is a bacteria living in the stomach lining. Without treating it, there may be ulcer formation and in extreme cases stomach cancer.
  • Bile reflux - Bile backflow in the stomach through the biliary tract (connecting the gallbladder and liver)
  • Bacterial and viral infections
  • There might be a lot of blood loss and chances of getting stomach cancer increase if gastritis is untreated. A doctor will see your family and your medical history, will do a proper physical evaluation and might ask you to get these tests:

    • Upper endoscopy- A narrow tube (endoscope) having a small camera attached to it is sent down to the stomach through the mouth to check the stomach’s lining. The doctor checks for inflammation. Depending on the investigation, they might do a biopsy. A biopsy involves removing a small tissue sample to send it for analysis to a clinical laboratory.
    • Blood tests- The doctor might do some blood tests like testing the RBC count to see whether there might be anemia. They can also look for pernicious anemia or H. pylori infection.
    • Stool test- It is done to check for blood in the stool, to rule out gastritis.

Treatment

Here are the treatments for gastritis:

  • Take antacids and drugs which reduce the stomach’s acid (like proton-pump inhibitors)
  • Avoid spicy and hot foods
  • For H. pylori induced gastritis, a doctor might prescribe few antibiotics along with an acidity regulator
  • For gastritis caused due to pernicious anemia, vitamin B12 shots are given
  • Eliminating troublesome foods like gluten and wheat

Gastritis usually goes away after the underlying problem is addressed.

A doctor should be consulted prior to starting gastritis treatment or stopping medicines.Gastritis is usually curable if no other complications are there and treatment starts and is followed through.

Intestinal Gas - How It Can Be Treated?

Intestinal Gas - How It Can Be Treated?

The production of gas in the body is a natural process as long as it is within normal limits. Whether it makes you burp or causes flatulence, excessive gas can be embarrassing. Gas can also make you uncomfortable and cause bloating. This is simply the buildup of excessive gas in the stomach before it is ready to be released. Here are a few simple tips that can help you prevent the buildup of excessive gas.

  1. Avoid eating gaseous foods: Beans, broccoli, milk, cheese and fruits like pears and apples; these are some of the foods to avoid if you suffer from frequent bouts of gaseousness. This is because they contain fiber and sugar that is difficult to digest and creates gas. If you cannot avoid them completely, try steaming them instead of frying or baking them. Some people may also react to certain food combinations such as fruits and proteins by producing gas. Keeping a food diary may help identify such combinations.
  2. Drink a glass of water before meals: Drinking water while you are eating can hinder digestion. When water mixes with solid food, it interferes with the way stomach acid breaks down food. Instead, drink a glass of water half an hour before your meals. In this way, the water flushes your system and prepares it for the digestion process.
  3. Eat slowly: Grabbing a bite on the go is one of the leading causes of indigestion. When you eat anything, ensure that you chew it properly and do not swallow large bites of food. This prevents air from collecting in your stomach and thus prevents gaseousness.
  4. Probiotics: Probiotics boost the production of ‘good gut bacteria’ that is essential for digestion. Probiotics can also help ease bloating. If you suffer from gas, try including probiotics like yogurt, pickles, kimchi and buttermilk in your diet or get yourself a probiotic supplement.
  5. A cup of chamomile tea: Chamomile not only calms the body but can also fight indigestion and gas. A cup of chamomile tea after a heavy meal helps speed up the digestion process. This helps relieve bloating, as the faster the stomach is emptied, the faster gas can move out of the stomach and into the intestines. Fennel, dill, peppermint and ginger can also be used as alternatives to chamomile.
  6. Digestive aids: Gas is a fairly common problem faced by a number of people and hence digestive aids are easily available over the counter. Look for medication that contains activated charcoal or digestive enzymes.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gastroenterologist.

Chronic Gastritis - How to Cope with it?

Chronic Gastritis - How to Cope with it?

When you have pain in the stomach that is accompanied by nausea and vomiting, chances of you having chronic gastritis are high. This is an issue that specifically affects the stomach and is caused because the lining of the stomach gets inflamed and swollen and in some cases it may get damaged. The deterioration of the lining may be caused because of a bacterial infection and that would have to be treated with specialised medicines and treatment methods. During that time you may feel like there is something wrong with your digestive system and you may need to consult a doctor for the constant pain that you have to go through as soon as you eat something.

Getting help
There may be times when you can no longer cope with the pain that may be occurring in your stomach. You may want to go to sleep or just sit still and do nothing; however, you cannot spend your entire life in that manner and you may have to consult an expert to get relief from the problem. One of the first steps in coping with chronic gastritis is to make sure that you make important lifestyle changes, such as eating healthy, choosing the right timings for eating, cutting down on alcohol and smoking and making sure that you choose a well-qualified and experienced doctor for getting the treatment.

Treatment
Apart from lifestyle changes, it is highly essential to follow a medication routine in order to beat the chronic gastritis completely. Doctors may suggest you take the medication according to the severity of the problem, but before that, you may be asked to go through a number of tests to confirm the problem. The tests may range from regular blood tests, stool tests, to endoscopy or even biopsy in some severe cases. After the testes are done, the doctors may be further sure about the the problem and that would be of great help in treating the issue with much more ease and expertise.

While it may be obvious to you that you suffer from chronic gastritis due to the constant pain in the stomach, it is also important to understand that the problem should not be taken lightly and that the right steps of the treatment should be taken in time before the problem gets worse.

What you are having is Gastroesophageal reflux disease Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the stomach contents leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). This can irritate the esophagus and cause heartburn and other symptoms. Causes When you eat, food passes from the throat to the stomach through the esophagus. A ring of muscle fibers in the lower esophagus prevents swallowed food from moving back up. These muscle fibers are called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). When this ring of muscle does not close all the way, stomach contents can leak back into the esophagus. This is called reflux or gastroesophageal reflux. Reflux may cause symptoms. Harsh stomach acids can also damage the lining of the esophagus. The risk factors for reflux include: Use of alcohol (possibly) Hiatal hernia (a condition in which part of the stomach moves above the diaphragm, which is the muscle that separates the chest and abdominal cavities) Obesity Pregnancy Scleroderma Smoking Symptoms can also be caused by certain medicines Common symptoms of GERD include: Feeling that food is stuck behind the breastbone Heartburn or a burning pain in the chest Nausea after eating Less common symptoms are: Bringing food back up (regurgitation) Cough or wheezing Difficulty swallowing Hiccups Hoarseness or change in voice Sore throat Symptoms may get worse when you bend over or lie down, or after you eat. Symptoms may also be worse at night. If you are overweight or obese, in many cases, losing weight can help. Avoid drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen. Take acetaminophen to relieve pain. Take all of your medicines with plenty of water. When your doctor gives you a new medicine, ask whether it will make your heartburn worse. You may use over-the-counter antacids after meals and at bedtime, although the relief may not last very long. Common side effects of antacids include diarrhea or constipation. Other over-the-counter and prescription drugs can treat GERD. They work more slowly than antacids, but give you longer relief.

Chest Pain
Here are Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment of Chest Pain

Good evening friends, I am Dr. Bharat B. Kukreti. I am a CI consultant intervention Cardiology at Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon. Today, we will discuss heart problem manifestation, chest pain.

We all have experienced chest pain at some point in time. It is such a common syndrome that everybody has gone through it at some point. The important thing here is that chest pain may be associated with a wide variety of disease which may range from a very simple gastritis to a very lethal heart attack. So the problem with chest pain is that we can t identify whether we are going through a heart attack or just another chest pain. So, this is what we will be discussing today.

First of all, How your chest pain occurs in a heart attack? A heart attack patient will typically about chest pain in a sensation of heaviness or squeezing or burning in the central chest or the left side of the chest which is radiating to either one arm or both arm or shoulders or jaw. It may be associated with a very profuse sweating and a sensation of restlessness, breathing difficulty or the sometimes patient may just faint. These all will be the symptoms of an ongoing heart attack.

Important thing is that these symptoms can be because of a heart attack but sometimes heart attack can occur even without the proper symptom which you can identify. Then, it becomes a difficult situation to identify how we know that it is a heart attack. So, once somebody is having a chest pain, you should first consult a doctor and get an E. C. G. done and to see whether the chest pain seems to be of heart region or something else. So, what can this something else be? This something else, that is a differential diagnosis of the chest pain may be apart from heart these other structures like lungs, they may be bone, they may be the muscular origin and the chest pain may be of neurological origin and sometimes just simple gastritis can give you a very severe chest pain also.

So, out of all these probabilities, the heart disease probability is the most dangerous. So that s why once somebody has chest pain, it s important to rule out the heart problem first so that life can be saved. So, if somebody is having chest pain, the first thing to be done is E. C. G. and it is to be seen by a qualified doctor to see whether the E. C. G. is suggestive of a heart problem or not. There is one interesting fact here. Up to 50% of the first E. C. G.s of the heart patients may be normal. So the first normal E. C. G. does not rule out a heart attack. Diagnosis for ruling out a heart attack is a systematic approach which includes Serial ECGs; Serial ECG means ECG now, ECG at half an hour, ECG at one hour, ECG at two hours, thus several ECGs and then afterward Cardiac Enzyme Test is done.

So, we will discuss this diagnosis and treatment part of chest pain or rather heart attack in our subsequent video, ok? You can contact me for chest pain problems or any other cardiac related problems into Paras Hospital, Gurgaon or you can contact me through Lybrate.

Lifestyle Disorder

Hello, friends, a very good morning to you. My name is Dr Vishwas Madhav Thakur. I am basically an M.B.B.S. graduate and a post graduate in occupational health, medical- legal systems, hospital management as well as H.R. management. I have been working with various corporates as their head or a chief medical officer and I am now a freelancer since 2012 and cater my services to corporates and do my private clinical practice at various locations including sector-49, Gurgaon. My address is already mentioned in the profile. I am available on lybrate for text, audio and video consultation for anyone who is in need.

Today I am actually talking about a very common thing that we find that is lifestyle disorders. Now, this lifestyle disorder is not someone is having some disease. It is just a disorder in the sense that you get some minor ailments or complaints for which you are bothered, your efficiency becomes disturbed and you feel that you need some kind of medical help. Now, this ranges from insomnia to blood pressure to depression, various body aches, cervical pain, back aches, intractable headache. So these are the symptoms for which people normally don t go to a right doctor. They may consume some over-the-counter- medication and most of the time these medications damage the kidney or liver. They suffer from gastrointestinal issues like gastritis and ulcer. So finally they become patient and then at that time it may be late to normalize their routine and come back to healthy living.

So, if you get some lifestyle related issues of coping up with your time schedule or work schedule it is better to talk to a doctor, who can counsel you, who can offer you time and give solution through multiple approaches.

I request all of you to consult timely if at all you suffer from whatever lifestyle disorder you have and normalize if you give sufficient time of 4-6 months and a dedication to this.

Thank you, my dear. I wish you all the best and a healthy life ahead.

Do's and Don'ts During Pregnancy
Hello Everyone.

I am Dr. Prabhjot Manchanda, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynecologists, Jagruti Clinic Ghatkopar East, Mumbai and Cofounder of Blessed Beginnings.

Before your bundle of joy arrives, it s your responsibility to keep him or her in a healthy environment. This list of dos and don ts in pregnancy will help you in that and provide answers to what you should worry about and what you should not really fed over. So let s get started. First: sex during pregnancy, pregnancy is a crucial time for couples as their one mistake can risk the life of their unborn baby. Sex done during wrong time can lead to abortions also, so what is the right time to do sex during pregnancy? Sex if done during first three months of pregnancy can lead to abortions and during seventh and eighth month of pregnancy can lead to premature delivery. So sex during fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth month of pregnancy is safe. In fact if sex done during ninth month of pregnancy actually helps you in getting a normal delivery by enhancing natural labor pains. Of course sex position has to be chosen wisely. Second: travelling during pregnancy, for the same reasons travelling during first and last three months of pregnancy is not advisable. Travelling during ninth month is also not advisable as after eight month of pregnancy airlines themselves do not give permission to pregnant lady to travel and also if you are travelling in the ninth month and you start getting labor pain you don t want to deliver in train or bus, right? Similarly heavy work and lifting heavy weights is not advisable during first and last three months of pregnancy. Third: food Habits during pregnancy, pregnancy is a time for pregnant females when there is a lot of bombardment of unwanted advice about what you should eat and what you should not eat and some of them are exactly opposite to each other. Confused. So whom you should listen to? Listen to your doctor. You can eat whatever you want to eat. For the first three months of pregnancy, because of pregnancy induced vomiting, either ways you are unable to eat half of the stuff. So observe in this period that what is suiting you and have that stuff often. Drink a lot of water and keep yourself hydrated. Some people say that papaya causes abortion but the less known fact is that raw papaya and papaya seed causes abortion and ripened papaya should not be blamed for. In fact you should limit on the ghee and butter laden Ladoo, which your daddi, nanni says it increases baby weight, but it does not increase baby weight. It increases your weight and risk your risk of getting diabetes during pregnancy. Protein is what is required to increase the baby weight. Of course you should avoid oily and spicy food as it may cause gastritis and iron and calcium supplements what you are taking makes you prone to gastritis. You have to choose either of them. Be wise and choose either of them. Fourth: exercise during pregnancy. Light exercises, yoga, meditation are actually good in pregnancy. They keep you mood elevated and also keep a check on you weight. Heavy exercises and lifting heavy weight is not advisable as I told you before. Light exercises and of course squatting can actually help you on delivering normally. Long walk especially with your partner is advisable with an errand benefit of bonding. Fifth: ultrasound during pregnancy, ultrasound and sonography are extremely safe during pregnancy. Sonography is the bone of motherhood as the doctor can actually see what is going inside the womb what is happening inside the womb, what is happening to the baby, and can make a decision so as to how the pregnancy should be carried for. Ultrasound during pregnancy can be done in numbers for time. X-rays although avoided in pregnancy, but can be done in unavoidable circumstances once or twice depending upon the site of x-ray and of course wearing abdominal sheet. Sixth: dental extractions during pregnancy, if you are having a decaying tooth, you cannot wait a month to get it removed, in fact get rid of tooth before it changes into pus or aphis. So by this I want to say, yes, dental treatment, root canal treatment and other dental conditions are extremely safe during pregnancy. You just have to visit your gynecologist for antibiotics. Seventh: medication during pregnancy your gynecologist must know what you are taking and what for you are taking. Certain medicines are really life threatening for the baby. It can also cause miscarriages or serious birth defects also medicines can also get secreted in the breast milk. So before taking any medicine ask your gynecologist about taking it, be it for a headache, a fever, a dental extraction or whatever you gynecologist should know what you are talking and when you are taking and also don t hide anything from your gynecologist. Be it a history of tuberculosis, epilepsy, thyroid, cancer or whatever. Your gynecologist has the right to know about your medical conditions. Eighth: do not eat raw meat or eggs. Raw or undercooked meat or eggs can actually cause like threatening food poisoning like listeriosis or toxoplasmosis which can cause serious birth defects in the baby and also can lead to miscarriages. So make sure what you are eating and make sure all your eggs and meat is well cooked.

I hope with this small video you can carry your pregnancy with ease and less confusion. If you like the video please like it and if you have any doubt or query, fell free to contact me directly or through lybrate.

Thanks for watching the video.
