Stomach Ulcer - What To Avoid?

Many times we forget about the importance of our health in the race to pursue our careers and goals. We take our bodies for granted and keep working them without stopping for a breath. While some may have mastered this art, there are many who may not be able to cope with such a lifestyle and may end up falling ill. The most common problem that most people suffer from is stomach upset, gas, or stomach pain, and all of this may be because of not eating right or having irregular eating habits.

It is due to such problems that people fall ill and then go to the doctor with a problem that may take much longer to treat. However, if the patient starts to check in with the doctor before the stomach pain worsens, it may be easier to treat because very often the pain arises from stomach ulcers. Ulcers are sores that are caused on the lining of the stomach or the oesophagus or even on the intestines. In serious cases, the sores may cause great damage to the stomach and may lead to much worse issues. However, with the right intake of food, the damage may be controlled in combination with medicines and treatment from experts.

Foods to avoid

In controlling the spread of stomach ulcers or peptic ulcers, it may be important to know the food that should be avoided so that the medicines and treatments taken for controlling the problem may work better. Here is a list of foods that you should avoid:

  1. Hot beverages such as tea, coffee, cocoa and milk should be avoided because they cause acid imbalance in the stomach.
  2. Anything that may contain caffeine should also be avoided.
  3. Alcohol should be completely avoided by those suffering from peptic ulcers.
  4. Citric or sour drinks such as grape or orange drinks should also be avoided for remaining at ease.
  5. Any spicy powders or seasonings, such as pepper, chilli powder and garlic should be excluded from the diet.
  6. Anything that is made from milk or cream and is extremely fatty in nature should not be consumed.
  7. Flavoured cheese that is strong and spicy should not be eaten.
  8. Meats that include high levels of fat or those that are highly seasoned should be completely avoided.
  9. Chillies or peppers in any form should be kept away from your diet.
  10. Anything that is made from tomato should also be avoided, such gravy, sauces or raw tomatoes.

When you start to keep your diet clean and healthy, it may be much easier for your doctor to cure you of stomach ulcers.

4 Causes Of Peptic Ulcer And Its Homeopathic Remedies!

Peptic ulcers are sores that develop in the lining of the stomach, lower esophagus, or small intestine (the duodenum), usually as a result of inflammation caused by the bacteria H. pylori, as well as from erosion from stomach acids. Peptic ulcers are a fairly common health problem.

Causes

  1. Heredity – Patients with peptic ulcer often have a family history of the disease, this is particularly so with duodenal ulcers which develop below the age of 20 years. The relatives of chronic ulcer patients have three times the expected number of ulcers.
  2. Helicobacter pylori – This is the most important etiological factor in peptic ulcer disease, accounting for 90% of duodenal ulcers and 70% of gastric ulcers. By causing gastritis it reduces the resistance of the gastric mucosa to attack be acid and pepsin and a gastric ulcer may result.
  3. Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) – These damage the gastric mucosal barrier and are an important etiological factor in up to 30% of gastric ulcers.
  4. Smoking – confers an increased risk of gastric ulcer and to a lesser extent duodenal ulcer.

Symptoms

  1. Abdominal pain
  2. Hunger pain
  3. Night pain
  4. Episodic pain/ Periodicity

Other Symptoms

  1. Heartburn
  2. Loss of appetite
  3. Vomiting

Homeopathic Treatment For Peptic Ulcers

Homeopathy offers some very good medicines for peptic ulcer disease. But for a homeopath, the symptoms of the disease are much more important than the ulcer itself. This is because to select the right medicine a homeopaths needs to differentiate between the finer presentations of a disease which, vary from person to person. A homeopath not only tries to heal the ulcer but also tries to remove the general predisposition to acquire it. The homeopath not only tries to find ‘What is wrong?’, but also ‘Why it went wrong?’; ‘Where it started going wrong?’; ‘How it evolved to the current stage?’ etc. To find the answers to all these questions, a homeopath tries to gather as much information as possible regarding the pat and present medical history of the patient, his/her family history, his/her general physical and psychological characteristics etc. This hard work on the part of homeopath not only helps in removing the acute symptoms and the ulcer but also is usually able to remove the tendency for relapse. The ‘on-again/off-again’ nature of the disease is often removed and the general health of the person also improves as a result.

Blocked Bile Duct & Gallbladder - How Surgery Can Be Of Help?

Blocked Bile Duct & Gallbladder - How Surgery Can Be Of Help?

The Kasai procedure involves removal of the bile duct and gallbladder that are blocked and get them replaced with a segment of a child’s own small intestine. The segment of intestine gets sewed into the liver and hence functions as a new extrahepatic bile duct system.

A paediatric surgeon, who has specialized training in the management of surgically corrected problems in children, performs the operation. The surgeon carries out the operation through a laparoscope by making small incisions instead of a large one. He or she would determine the safest method of performing the operation and would discuss with the parents of a child before going ahead to conduct the surgery.

What are the possible outcomes after a kasai procedure?
Children, after having undergone the Kasai Procedure can come across the following outcomes, which include:

  • Bile flow gets restored back to normal and recovery of liver function takes place in almost one third of children after Kasai Procedure.
  • In the long-term, antibiotic therapy helps to reduce the risk of infection that enters the liver through the intestine.
  • Though this procedure is not a permanent cure to get rid of biliary atresia, still in most of the cases, it allows patients to grow and stay healthy for a number of years.
  • The children might not need liver transplantation.
  • The remaining two thirds of children who have undergone this procedure won’t have sufficient bile flow as well as liver function, hence eventually requiring a liver transplantation.
  • Out of this group of two-third children, half of them would soon require liver transplantation, whereas the other half would need it at a later date.
  • When the surgery is done at an early stage, and the child is younger than 3 months old, close to 80 percent of the patients have some sort of bile flow.
  • In almost 30 percent of those infants, sufficient bile gets drained out from the liver, which allows the bilirubin level to go back to normal.

Recovery process after the pperation
The recovery process for a child, who has undergone Kasai Procedure would include:

  • A child would be cared for in the recovery area, so that one of the parents could be with him or her when they wake up.
  • Then, from the recovery room, the child would be transferred to the paediatric floor and hence stay in the hospital for a few days.
  • Then, once the child is able to eat properly, does not have any fever and feels comfortable to receive pain medication by mouth, he or she gets discharged and can get back home.
  • Doctors give medications in order to prevent build-up of ascites or excess fluid.

Harmful Effects Of Fast Food

The name 'fast food' comes from the fact that it can be prepared and served in a jiffy and not to mention, tastes delicious.

They are rich in calories, fat and sugar that lead to various kinds of health conditions.

Here are some of the conditions which can be caused by consumption of excessive fast food :

1. Heart diseases

Fast food contains high amounts of trans or saturated fats that can clog your arteries and lead to high level of cholesterol later in life. People who have junk food more than four times a week increase their risk of heart attack by 80%.

2. Obesity

Adolescents who have poor eating habits are at high risk of being obese. Gaining a lot of weight beyond a recommended proportion can cause many health problems. Junk foods have sugar and calories that lead to weight gain.

Burp A Lot! How Can You Prevent It?

Burp A Lot! How Can You Prevent It?

After eating a meal to your heart’s content, it is very normal to burp or belch. However, it is normal only when it happens occasionally, or after a meal, for someone used to a contented meal every single time. On the other hand, excessive burping or belching can happen due to two reasons.

  1. Excessive air intake: There are multiple ways that excessive air can reach the food pipe. Sucking on straws, chewing gum constantly and ill-fitting dentures are some common reasons for burping.
  2. Digestive problems: Ulcers in the stomach, prolonged gastric, gallstones and rarely, esophageal or stomach cancers can also cause burping.

When to see a doctor
Check with a doctor if you have persistent burping, followed by a meal or otherwise, and accompanied by the following symptoms.

  1. Nausea
  2. Bloody stools
  3. Abdominal pain
  4. Vomiting
  5. Weight loss
  6. Fever

Preventing belching

  1. Go slow when eating and/or drinking: Most of us are pressed for time and eating and/or drinking has now become a task that needs to be finished quickly. Eating fast causes air to be swallowed, and therefore one of the best ways to stop burping is to eat slowly. Sitting in a calm, relaxing environment when eating also allows one to enjoy the food and avoid or stop burping.
  2. Avoid talking while eating: There is always so much to catch up, whether at home or outside. So, talking while eating is a common practice. This is not just bad manners, but there is also a lot of air that is swallowed, which leads to burping. A solution is to chew the food properly, which not just helps stop burping, but also aids in better food digestion by mixing it adequately with saliva.
  3. Substitute coke with water: Carbonated drinks are another reason for belching. Replacing them with water, tea, or anything noncarbonated is advisable, not just from burping perspective, but also from the excessive sugar consumption. Carbonated drinks are just sugar solutions, and are absolutely of no nutritive value.
  4. Avoid straw: When possible, drink from a glass and avoid straws. This reduces the amount of gas taken in and helps stop burping
  5. Quit smoking: Quitting it has multiple health benefits, and getting rid of smoking is just one of them.
  6. Dentures: Ill-fitting dentures can be a reason for belching, and so they should be checked and corrected, if required, in a person who has persistent burping.
  7. Chewing gum: Constantly chewing gum contributes to burping, and so avoiding chewing gum or sucking on hard candy is another way to control burping.
  8. Avoid certain foods: Foodstuffs like broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, sprouts, and lentils can produce excessive gas and should be avoided in people who have persistent burping.

Follow the above steps in your daily routine; still if your burping problem persists, it is time to consult your physician.

Peptic Ulcer - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment!

Peptic Ulcer - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment!

Peptic Ulcer Definition: 
When the lining of the lower oesophagus, small intestine, or stomach develops open pores it is called peptic ulcer. It usually forms due to inflammation caused by erosion of stomach acids. It differs from erosion due to its deeper extension into the lining and stimulates the inflammatory reaction more from the tissues involved. There are several symptoms that you may observe, such as:

-  pain in the upper abdomen, which will give you dull, sharp or hunger-like feeling

-  heartburn, or acid reflux

-  feeling discomfort

It is a fairly common health problem but can lead to internal bleeding if left untreated. This may sometimes bring to the situation that will require blood transfusions in the hospital. The formation of peptic ulcer is related to H. pylori bacteria in the stomach and NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications) in about 50 per cent of patients. The remaining number of patients suffers from the disease due to numerous causes like severe physiological stress, drugs, genetic factors, smoking, but many times the cause remains unknown. A peptic ulcer is a type of recurrent disease, which means it can recur even after being healed unless it is treated to prevent recurrence. The pain of ulcer may not show a relation with the presence or severity of ulceration. The condition is diagnosed by endoscopy or upper GI series. It is treated to relieve the patient from pain, heal the condition and prevent complications. There are three forms of peptic ulcer:

-  oesophagal ulcer: develops inside the oesophagus

-  gastric ulcer: develops on the stomach lining

-  duodenal ulcer: develops in the upper section of small intestines

Peptic Ulcer Symptoms: 
The symptoms of peptic ulcer vary according to its types. People suffering from ulcers experience abdominal discomfort and minimal indigestion that occurs after having meals, or no discomfort at all. Many people complain of hunger pain or upper abdominal burning which extends to the chest from naval, ranging from mild to severe. The pain occurs after one to three hours of having the meal, or in some cases may wake you up at night. The symptoms often get relived from the food or antacids that defuse the stomach acid. The ulcer disease pain poorly correlates with the severity or presence of active ulceration. While some people experience persistent pin even after the complete healing of ulcer by medication, others have no pain at all. The disease often comes and go naturally and unexpectedly without letting the person know that it is present unless a serious issue occurs like perforation or bleeding. It is to be noted that poor appetite, nausea and vomiting are uncommon symptoms of peptic ulcers, and burping and bloating are not peptic ulcer symptoms.

Causes of Peptic Ulcer: 
Earlier it was believed that excess of acid is the main cause of ulcer disease. According to that, the treatment was emphasized on neutralizing and inhibiting the stomach acid secretion. While acid is still considered important for the ulcer formation and its primary treatment is still suppression, the two most crucial initiating causes of the disease are the chronic use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) that includes aspirin, and infection in the stomach due to a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Smoking cigarette is also the main reason for the cause of ulcers as well as failure in the healing of the disease. A very common infection is H. pylori which have affected more than a billion people worldwide.

Usually, the infection persists for many years, resulting in ulcer disease in 10 per cent to 15 per cent of those infected. More than 80 per cent of patients with duodenal and gastric ulcers have been found with H. pylori in the past. As the appreciation, diagnosis and treatment of this infection are increasing, the occurrence of infection with H. pylori and the proportion of ulcers caused due to bacterium has decreased. According to an estimation presently only 20 per cent of ulcers are accompanying the bacterium. The mechanism which helps H. pylori to cause ulcers is complex. But the bacterium can be eliminated by antibiotics which have clearly shown healing of the disease and prevention from recurrence.

Medications like NSAIDs cause ulcers by meddling with the production of stomach prostaglandins. These medications are used for treating painful inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis, in the body. Some examples of this category of medications are aspirin, naproxen, etodolac and ibuprofen. The linings of the stomach, duodenum and oesophagus are resisted from damage by the acidic digestive juices of the stomach with the help of prostaglandins, a substance produced by the body.

When a person smokes cigarette it not only causes the disease but also increases the risk of complications from it, such as obstruction, perforation and bleeding. It is also a leading cause of failure of the treatment for ulcers.

 

How is it diagnosed? 
If the doctor suspects that you might have a peptic ulcer then he will initiate your diagnosis with a physical examination and some tests to know the causes of peptic ulcer.

-  He will check your belly and ask if you have had feelings of bloating, pain or tenderness. With the help of his stethoscope, he will listen to any sounds that your stomach might be making.

-  You will be then asked to get some tests done to look for the symptoms of H. pylori bacteria. The doctor will take samples of your blood, stool, or breath for these.

-  In cases of old age and symptoms that include loss of appetite or weight loss, your doctor may use a long, flexible tube to look down your throat and into your stomach for symptoms of an ulcer. This device is called an endoscope, which can also collect a small sample of tissue from an ulcer for testing in a laboratory.

-  Before the X-ray of your stomach, your doctor may ask you to drink a milky liquid known as barium. This drink helps in showing up of problems like ulcers clearly by coating your digestive system.

Prevention from Peptic Ulcer: 
If you are worried about acquiring the disease then you must know what is the preventive measure for peptic ulcers. You need to be careful while taking painkillers. People, who are suffering from arthritis or other conditions that cause chronic pain, take NSAIDs for weeks or even months to ease their swelling and pain. Medications like these have the probability to affect the mucus which protects your stomach against acid. It makes you more likely to acquire peptic ulcers. your chances of having the disease increases if you are above 65 years of age, take more than one NSAID, infected with H. pylori bacteria, take selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) and have had the disease in the past. To lower the chances while taking NSAIDs you need to:

-  Lower the dose in order to control your symptoms

-  Stop its consumption as soon as it is no longer needed

-  It is recommended to take the medicine with food

-  Do not have alcohol while taking these medicines

You can take medicine while you are on NSAIDs to reduce the amount of acid that your stomach produces. Such types of drugs include proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as pantoprazole (Protonix), esomeprazole (Nexium) and omeprazole (Prilosec OTC), and H2 blockers like ranitidine (Zantac) and famotidine (Pepcid). Drugs like misoprostol (Cytotec) can also be taken so as to boost the protective mucus amount that your stomach produces.

Treatment of Peptic Ulcer: 
The treatment depends on the signs of a peptic ulcer and its causes. Your doctor will prescribe medications if the tests show that you have H. pylori infection. The medications are required to be taken for up to two weeks. These include PPIs that help to reduce acid in stomach and antibiotics that will assist in killing infections. There is the probability of experiencing minor side effects from antibiotic regimens such as diarrhoea or a stomach disorder. You need to talk to your doctor if these side effects do not get better over time or cause significant discomfort. In the case of H. pylori infection, your doctor may suggest PPI, like Prevacid or Prilosec, for eight weeks so as to lower the stomach acid and help to heal your disease. The stomach acid and ulcer pain can also be reduced with acid blockers like famotidine (Pepcid) and ranitidine (Zantac). To coat your stomach in order to reduce the signs of peptic ulcers your doctor may also prescribe sucralfate (Carafate).

Complications: 
Patients suffering from peptic ulcers usually function quite comfortably. Though it recurs, if taken prevention from beforehand the ulcers probably heal completely even without medications. This is why ulcer complications are related to major problems resulting from the disease. Patients complaining about bleeding ulcers may experience weakness, melena (passage of black tarry stools), vomiting blood (hematemesis) and a sense of light-headedness. The disease, if left untreated can worsen over time. It can lead to various health complications, such as:

-  Internal bleeding: Patients with bleeding ulcers can lead to significant loss of blood and will require an immediate blood transfusion. The site of bleeding is established by performing endoscopy so that active ulcer bleeding can be stopped with the help of specialized endoscopic instruments. The symptoms of a bleeding ulcer consist of dizziness, black stool and light-headedness.

-  Perforation: The lining of the small intestine or stomach acquires a hole that causes an infection. A sign of a perforated ulcer can be understood when you experience sudden and severe abdominal pain.

-  Scar tissue: After an injury, a thick tissue develops known as scar tissue. It makes the passage of food difficult through your digestive tract. Some common signs of scar tissue are vomiting and loss of weight. When such complications occur it requires surgery for the treatment.

Myths: 
With so many myths surrounding the peptic ulcer, it is important for you to know about the nature of the disease so that you receive proper treatment instead of believing various theories that don’t even have any scientific backing. Below given are some of the common facts related to the myths of peptic ulcers that will help to take the right decisions regarding your health.

-  Spicy food is the main reason for causing ulcers. The fact is it has not yet been proved that spicy foods could lead to peptic ulcers. But consuming an extremely spicy diet on having ulcers in your stomach can lead to aggravation of the existing condition.

-  Peptic ulcers cannot be treated. This is not true. When the disease is diagnosed at an early stage it can be treated and completely healed. Depending on the causes the doctor performs the treatment. It is important to continue with the course of medication till its completion even if you feel better. Having a balanced diet that has a lower amount of spice helps to prevent the pain related to an ulcer. Avoiding alcohol, positive change in lifestyle with proper medications are enough to avert recurrence of ulcers.

-  A peptic ulcer is triggered by stress. The fact is, stress is not responsible for causing the formation of an ulcer. In most of the cases, the disease is caused due to a bacterium called H. pylori. If a patient is diagnosed with no presence of bacterial infection then the cause for the disease could be regular and excessive consumption of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, etc. The ulcer can only be aggravated by stress by stimulating stress hormones but does not cause the formation of ulcers.

Conclusion: 
Although peptic ulcers can be healed completely, it can recur if no changes are brought into a lifestyle. Some patients get relief from gastric obstruction when the contents of the stomach are suck out with a tube for 72 hours. But patients with persistent obstruction will need surgery. You must maintain a healthy lifestyle by quitting to smoke cigarettes and use of other tobacco products. Avoid drinking alcohol and start eating a balanced diet like fruits, vegetables and whole grains as these will prevent you from developing a pelvic ulcer. Don’t ignore the situations like a pain in the upper abdomen and heartburn, and seek a doctor’s advice for proper treatment.

Peptic Ulcers - Homeopathic Ways To Treat It!

One of the most common problems with the gastrointestinal system, peptic ulcersoccur when the lining of the stomach - the esophagus or the small intestines, gets damaged. The damage occurs due to the development of sores on the lining which may be due to inflammation caused by certain bacteria, or due to erosion caused by the stomach acids. This can be a very painful disorder and end up severely limiting your life. Peptic ulcers can cause intense abdominal painvomiting nauseaindigestion and sudden unexplained weight loss.

The Homeopathic Approach to Curing Peptic Ulcers

The treatment of peptic ulcers in conventional medicine primarily revolves around the treatment of symptoms. The symptoms may be suppressed for some time but eventually come back sooner or later. This results in a vicious cycle where the treatment becomes less and less effective over time. Homeopathy, on the other hand, has an approach of trying to correct the problems from the root and over time, remove the very cause that results in the problem. Some of the things a homeopathic doctor may ask you would include –

  1. Family history of ulcers
  2. General health history of the family to determine hereditary health problems
  3. Physical characteristics
  4. Psychological tendencies and likes and dislikes among other information

Homeopathy takes into account not just the symptoms but the general constitution of the patient as well. This helps not only cure the ulcers but also the pre disposition to developing it again.

Effective Homeopathic Medications

Some of the most effective homeopathic medications used in the treatment of peptic ulcers are mentioned below. However, you shouldn’t try to self-medicate as it is best to consult with a doctor who can properly diagnose the problems and prescribe medication which are specifically tailored for you.

  1. Argentum Nitricum – One of the most effective medication in treating ulcers, Argentum Nitricum is usually prescribed when you experience sharp burning pains from peptic ulcers that radiate to different area of the abdomen. The pain is akin to the feeling of gnawing inside the stomach. Other symptoms such as vomiting, belching and nausea may also be present.
  2. Nux Vomica – If you have peptic ulcers and even eating the slightest amount of food causes pain, then Nux vomica may be a good option and thus be prescribed by your doctor. Another indication in such cases is where the abdominal region is very sensitive and you may feel pain even with the slightest touch. Nux Vomica is also very effective if your peptic ulcer symptoms tend to get worse after the consumption of teacoffee, spicy foods or alcoholic beverages.
  3. Kali Bichromicum – Sometimes, peptic ulcers may cause the food in your stomach to sit like a heavy load immediately after meals. This can make you very uncomfortable and unable to do any other form of work. This is often times accompanied by a low appetite. In such cases, Kali Bichromicum has been seen to work wonders.
  4. Lycopodium Clavatum – If you have burning pain in your stomach along with the bloating of your abdomen, then Lycopodium Clavatum is the best medication for you. Other indications for this medication are when ingestion of warm water helps relieve pain. If consuming certain vegetables such as cabbage and beans worsens the situation, then Lycopodium Clavatum could be the best medication in such a case.
  5. Carbo-veg – An all-rounder in the field of homeopathy, Carbo-Veg is also effective when treating peptic ulcers which are accompanied by heartburn and acidity as well as sour belching. The pain from the ulcers may extend from the stomach all the way to the back. Other indication wherein Carbo-Veg may be effective is where the stomach area becomes very sensitive to touch and even small amounts of food may suddenly cause the symptoms to deteriorate.
  6. Hydrastis Canadensis – Stomach or abdominal pain accompanied by weight loss is one of the major indications where this medication may be prescribed. The patient may become emaciated and have sharp cutting pains in the stomach. In such cases, Hydrastis has been seen to be very effective.
  7. Graphites – This medication is extremely useful where along with the ulcerpain, you may end up vomiting your food immediately after a meal. A sensation which is painful and constrictive may be present in your stomach. Along with these symptoms, Graphites are also very effective when you suffer from excessive belching.
  8. Phosphorus – If you exhibit typical symptoms of peptic ulcer such as sour belching and a burning sensation in the stomach after eating, Phosphorus could well be the panacea.

Homoeopathic Remedies For Peptic Ulcers

Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of your stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine. The most common symptom of a peptic ulcer is stomach pain.
Peptic ulcers include

· gastric ulcers that occur on the inside of the stomach

· duodenal ulcers that occur on the inside of the upper portion of your small intestine (duodenum)

The most common causes of peptic ulcers are infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (h. Pylori) and long-term use of aspirin and certain other painkillers, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve, Anaprox, others). Stress and spicy foods do not cause peptic ulcers. However, they can make your symptoms worse.

Causes-

Peptic ulcers occur when acid in the digestive tract eats away at the inner surface of the stomach or small intestine. The acid can create a painful open sore that may bleed.

Your digestive tract is coated with a mucous layer that normally protects against acid. But if the amount of acid is increased or the amount of mucus is decreased, you could develop an ulcer. Common causes include

A bacterium. Helicobacter pylori bacteria commonly live in the mucous layer that covers and protects tissues that line the stomach and small intestine. Often, the h. Pylori bacterium causes no problems, but it can cause inflammation of the stomach's inner layer, producing an ulcer.
It's not clear how h. Pylori infection spreads. It may be transmitted from person to person by close contacts, such as kissing. People may also contract h. Pylori through food and water.
Regular use of certain pain relievers. Taking aspirin, as well as certain over-the-counter and prescription pain medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) can irritate or inflame the lining of your stomach and small intestine. These medications include ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin ib, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve, Anaprox, others), but not acetaminophen (Tylenol).

Peptic ulcers are more common in older adults who take these pain medications frequently or in people who take these medications for osteoarthritis.

Other medications- Taking certain other medications along with nsaids, such as steroids, anticoagulants, low-dose aspirin, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris), alendronate (fosamax) and risedronate (actonel), can greatly increase the chance of developing ulcers.

Risk factors- in addition to taking certain pain medications, including aspirin, you may have an increased risk of peptic ulcers if you

  • Smoke. Smoking may increase the risk of peptic ulcers in people who are infected with h. Pylori.
  • Drink alcohol. Alcohol can irritate and erode the mucous lining of your stomach, and it increases the amount of stomach acid that's produced.
  • Have untreated stress.
  • Eat spicy foods.
  • Alone, these factors do not cause ulcers, but they can make them worse and more difficult to heal.


Symptoms

Burning stomach pain. Feeling of fullness, bloating or belching

  • Fatty food intolerance. Heartburn. Nausea
  • The most common peptic ulcer symptom is burning stomach pain. Stomach acid makes the pain worse, as does having an empty stomach. The pain can often be relieved by eating certain foods that buffer stomach acid or by taking an acid-reducing medication, but then it may come back. The pain may be worse between meals and at night.
  • Nearly three-quarters of people with peptic ulcers don't have symptoms.
  • Less often, ulcers may cause severe signs or symptoms such as:
  • vomiting or vomiting blood — which may appear red or black
  • dark blood in stools, or stools that are black or tarry
  • trouble breathing
  • feeling faint
  • nausea or vomiting
  • unexplained weight loss
  • appetite changes


Complications-

  • Left untreated, peptic ulcers can result in:
  • Internal bleeding. Bleeding can occur as slow blood loss that leads to anemia or as severe blood loss that may require hospitalization or a blood transfusion. Severe blood loss may cause black or bloody vomit or black or bloody stools.
  • Infection. Peptic ulcers can eat a hole through (perforate) the wall of your stomach or small intestine, putting you at risk of serious infection of your abdominal cavity (peritonitis).
  • Obstruction. Peptic ulcers can lead to swelling, inflammation or scarring that may block passage of food through the digestive tract. A blockage may make you become full easily, vomit and lose weight.
