How To Detect Stomach Acid Disease Early?
In the afternoon, I want to ask, how do I detect stomach acid early?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Gastric acid (HCl) is a normal secretion produced by parietal cells in the gastric mucosa wall. Therefore, stomach acid is not a disorder.
What often triggers complaints is, if the production of gastric acid is increased, or if the sensitivity of the stomach increases with the stomach acid that it produces itself. This condition is more commonly referred to in the medical realm as dyspepsia syndrome. Clinically, dyspeptic syndrome sufferers will experience uncomfortable sensations, which appear mainly in the upper abdomen (solar plexus, close to the chest), which is in the form of pain, pain, spasms, nausea, lumps, phlegm, and so on. In more severe conditions, patients can also experience vomiting, vomiting, bloody bowel movements, decreased appetite, to lead to a pretty drastic weight loss.
There are a variety of conditions that can cause dyspepsia syndrome, ranging from the unknown obvious trigger (idiopathic), to those related to organic disorders, for example GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis, peptic ulcer, pancreatitis, cholangitis, cholecystitis, and so on. Depending on the cause, the diagnosis of this condition can be made through various examinations, for example endoscopy, blood tests, stool examinations, breath tests, barium X ray, and so on.
The question now, are you experiencing symptoms of dyspepsia syndrome?
If so, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. With a comprehensive examination, the general practitioner can identify the cause of your complaint while providing the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
