Consult Your Doctor

When the lining of our stomach becomes inflamed then, we have gastritis. What causes gastritis? Some reasons are excessive alcohol consumption and prolonged use of aspirin or buffer. If you have infection like after a major surgery, you can be vulnerable with gastritis.

I know you have heard about the procedure called banding where they basically control the intake of food into your stomach. Gastritis could be a byproduct of this procedure. Also, if you have had some type of surgery on your digestive track, this could lead to gastritis. Stress can be a major cause of developing gastritis too. The most common symptom is a constant upset stomach with pain. If you are having a re-occurring indigestion along with feeling nauseous and vomiting, these could also be major symptoms of gastritis. Make an appointment with your doctor right away. There are several test that can be given to determine if you have gastritis. A blood count test, a normal blood test, or they may even test your stool to determine if you have this condition.

The treatment could be as simple as taking anti-acids or other types of medicine such as antibiotics. Your doctor might also suggest that you refrain from eating heavily spiced food or hot food such as Chile. The extreme treatment would be to take B12 injections. If you just have a mild case of gastritis over-the-counter medicines would be a common treatment. If you have unexplained weight loss or feeling full after only eating a small portion of food, you should visit a doctor. Contact your physician and go for a complete blood count test as to determine your condition.
