Gastritis is a very common health issue which many people face throughout the year. It is a condition in which the inner linings of the stomach become irritating and suffer inflammation. Gastritis affects almost 1 million people every year in India. It is majorly reported between individuals ageing over 18 years.

What Causes Gastritis?

Gastritis can be caused due to a lot of different factors. Let us have a look at them:

  • Overconsumption of alcohol or continuous vomiting
  • Due to the bacteria named Helicobacter pylori
  • Due to irregular bowel movement


The symptoms of Gastritis are very easy to locate and identify:

  • Nausea or recurrent upset stomach can affect the person for almost a week as well
  • Abdominal bloating can happen frequently
  • Abdominal pain is also reported by the machines which are made available
  • Vomiting is a common problem when you throw out all the important foods out from the stomach
  • Indigestion due to the imbalance in the bowl system and inefficient digestive system
  • Burning or gnawing feeling in the stomach between meals or at night
  • Continuous hiccups are also observed at times

Diagnosis And Treatment

Gastritis is diagnosed with the help of different kinds of methods and also the treatment involves an extensive time period. Gastritis is diagnosed with the help of different techniques like upper endoscopy and blood tests. These methods help to observe whether there are any complications or not. But there are even different ways in which you can treat Gastritis.

  • You can take antacids or any other medical drug which helps combat gastritis
  • You must prevent the consumption of hot and spicy food in a significant amount
  • In case the gastritis is caused due to any kind of bacterial infection, you will be prescribed with antibacterial medicines

So, this is how you will be diagnosed and treated in case you have a gastritis problem.


When you are suffering from Gastritis, you will be required to eat healthy and prevent the consumption of junk food. You will need to eat fruits and vegetables with very less spice for every item that is cooked for you. You can also drink some beverage like a warm cup of tea which helps to soothe the stomach and the bowel system. Therefore, for the few coming days, you will not be able to eat your favourite dish and control your appetite to the fullest.
