Food Abstinence For Gastritis Sufferers?
Good afternoon. My mom has been sick for a long time. Are there good medicines that can be bought at pharmacies to reduce pain? What foods are allowed and what foods should be avoided? Then what must be done to cure it. thank you
Hello Ivtachul, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
My assumption is that you are gestally sick, meaning gastric disease, gastritis. Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach caused by bacterial infection or other irritants. Usually patients with this disease have complaints of pain and heat such as burning in the upper abdomen, nausea, vomiting and bloating.
The things you can do to prevent or reduce the symptoms of this disease are:
- Have a good diet, which is food with small portions but frequent frequency
- Do not consume foods that stimulate the digestive tract such as foods that are too acidic, spicy foods, and foods or drinks that contain excess gas
- Reducing consumption of tea or coffee because it can trigger contractions of the digestive system
- Reduces stress
- Maintain cleanliness of hands before eating to avoid bacterial contamination into the stomach
I suggest you bring your mother to consult a general practitioner or a specialist in internal medicine to be able to do a thorough examination, such as vital signs, physical examinations, and additional examinations if necessary such as radiology and endoscopic examination, so that treatment can be given in accordance with diagnosis of your mother's disease.
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
