There are several diseases that involve stomach and intestinal acids, including dyspepsia syndrome, gastritis, duodenitis, gastroenteritis, GERD, colitis and others. This is caused by an imbalance of gastric acid with the defense of the intestinal mucosa, so that it can cause injury to the intestinal mucosa, causing symptoms of pain and other gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or defecation. Most of these conditions are influenced by several main factors, such as eating schedules, types of food consumed, bacterial infections, psychological factors (stress), drug use, and others.
Therefore, the things you should do at home are:
Set a regular diet
Avoid consumption of foods that are too spicy or acidic and irritate the stomach
Use medicines only on doctor's advice. Be careful about long-term use of anti-pain medications, because they can be irritative to the stomach and digestive tract.
Avoid stress, smoking, and alcohol consumption
Take your stomach medications regularly if you are given special treatment by a doctor
The need to stay in control of the doctor or not, depends on the development of symptoms that you feel. If by adopting a healthy lifestyle, your complaints improve, then there is no need. However, if it does not improve, and still often recurs, or even worsens, accompanied by other symptoms such as watery stools, blood mixed, fever, etc., check with your general practitioner or internist, so that a more complete examination and appropriate treatment .
Thus, hopefully can help.
