Benefits Of Sucralfate In Peptic Ulcers?
Does routine drinking 3×2 spoonful syrup sucralfate every day can cure stomach ulcers? Or just relieve the symptoms?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Ulcer or gastric ulcer, is a condition in which there is injury to the stomach that causes symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, flatulence, frequent belching, heartburn, loss of appetite and burning of the chest. This condition occurs usually because there are factors that accelerate the erosion of the stomach lining, such as bacterial infections, consumption of pain medications, smoking, stress, consumption of spicy foods and alcohol consumption.
Regarding your question, treatment for peptic ulcers can vary, starting from administering drugs to reduce levels of stomach acid and protecting the stomach lining, endoscopy for direct viewing, and possibly surgery. So whether sucralfate can cure stomach ulcers, will depend again on how severe the condition. If it's still mild maybe sucralfate alone is enough to reduce symptoms to completely cure it, and if the condition is severe, sucralfate alone will not be enough.
What is clear, do not do independent treatment or without a prescription from a doctor. To get treatment, you do have to do an examination first, can be at the health center or may be directly at the doctor of internal medicine. In this way, misunderstandings can be avoided, and diagnosis and treatment are more appropriate.
Meanwhile, to help recovery, avoid consuming spicy, sour, oily foods, coffee, eating regularly and avoiding stress also staying up late and alcohol. So, hopefully answering your question.
