Ulcer is a condition that often occurs. Complaints that are often expressed are the presence of heartburn, but in addition to these complaints can also be accompanied by:
Nausea and vomiting
Stomach feels bloated
A burning feeling in the stomach that can radiate to the esophagus
Mouth tastes bitter
This collection of symptoms in medical language is called dyspepsia syndrome. Some of the causes of this cluster of symptoms include:
Gastritis, which is inflammation of the lining of the stomach
GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), where stomach acid rises up into the esophagus
Peptic ulcers, sores on the lining of the stomach.
Stomach cancer, usually begins with H. Pylori bacterial infection in the stomach
Consumption of certain drugs that can cause injury to the lining of the stomach. Most often caused by anti-pain and anti-inflammatory drugs.
In addition, lifestyle also turns out to be a risk factor for these complaints, such as stress, irregular eating patterns and consumption of foods that stimulate the production of excess stomach acid. If you have had previous treatment but the complaints are still recurring, you need to pay attention to how to eat a good diet because treatment without changing your lifestyle can cause repeated complaints, but if the complaints are getting worse or do not change, you should consult your doctor again.
If the complaint is accompanied by severe vomiting or bleeding and the appetite continues to decrease or the complaint has interfered with daily activities, immediately consult a doctor. Doctors need to conduct an examination directly related to your complaint, supporting examinations such as ultrasound, X-rays and even Endoscopy can be done if it is in accordance with the indications so that the cause can be known.
The lifestyle that you need to pay attention to, among others:
Avoid consuming foods that contain excess fat, spicy, sour, sour foods.
Eat on a schedule and add healthy snacks between meals
Avoid alcohol consumption
Drink plenty of water at least 2-3 liters / day
