at night.rnDoc, I want to ask, can a gastric ulcer with black stools be cured with medicine and maintain a healthy diet?

1 Answer:

Hi Akmal, thanks for the question.

Black stool or also known as melena is a sign of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Several conditions can cause this complaint, including:

Injuries to the upper gastrointestinal tract, for example, wounds to the esophagus, stomach, or duodenum. Prolonged use of pain medications can increase the risk of gastric ulcers. Blood ingested from active bleeding in the mouth or nose. Dengue hemorrhagic fever. Patients with chronic hepatitis or liver disorders. Effects of eating foods that contain iron (iron) or bismuth Blood disorders, and others

Melena if left untreated can cause a person to experience anemia (lack of blood). This is a serious condition that requires immediate treatment by a doctor. Therefore, it is not recommended to treat it yourself and it would be better if you consulted an internal medicine specialist. The doctor will conduct questions and answers, direct physical examination, and supporting examinations (such as blood tests, stool examinations, endoscopy (insert a small size camera through the mouth), liver function tests, etc.). The doctor will then provide the right therapy and according to your condition.

That's all, hope it helps.
