Explanation Of The Results Of Gastric Endoscopy And Its Treatment?
ass. doctor, I had an endoscopy and the result was erosion of the gastric mucosa and the tissue was biopsied and the results were negative for H. pylori. I want to ask what medicine is right for me?
If the results of the endoscopic examination do not find the presence of H. pylori bacteria, then the following things can be the cause of peptic ulcers:
Drugs that irritate the surface of the stomach Lifestyle (eating inappropriately, extreme dieting to not eating, consuming foods that irritate the stomach) Stress of mind Genetic factors
In general, the treatment of gastric ulcers that are not caused by bacteria is to reduce symptoms/complaints while treating the causative factors to be avoided (unless genetic factors cannot be changed). The administration of drugs is usually in the form of drugs that can reduce the production of stomach acid (because the high levels of acid in the stomach are what trigger irritation and injury), drugs that coat the surface of the injured stomach (so that complaints are reduced, prevent the wound from getting worse, etc.), and helps the healing process), and drugs that function to neutralize acid levels in the stomach. Some anti-nausea and vomiting drugs may be needed if the stomach ulcer is accompanied by this complaint.
Most gastric ulcer drugs are classified as hard drugs, so their use is expected through clinical considerations by a doctor who has examined your health condition, the use of drugs that are not properly indicated or dosed can cause unwanted effects or even not help treat your condition. So Nana should check with a doctor first so that she can consider the type of medicine and dosage that suits your situation.
As a suggestion, Nana is expected to change her lifestyle to help the healing process of gastric ulcers
Avoid taking drugs without clinical consideration from a doctor, some pain medications can irritate the stomach especially if consumed on an empty stomach or large doses Eat regularly 3x/day, try to have a regular time and don't change Choose the type of food that is not sour, spicy, and greasy. Instant food and beverage products should be limited Manage stress well Avoid staying up late
