Non-bacterial Gastric Ulcer Treatment?
Sorry doctor I asked again. Last week I had an endoscopy and the result was erosion of the gastric mucosa and a tissue biopsy was done with negative results for H. pylori. So is there no need for antibiotics in my case?
Ulcer is a common term for ulcer, which is an ulcer with a characteristic echo, which reflects that this wound occurs at a fairly deep degree. The ulcers can occur in the digestive tract and one of them in the stomach. The cause of this ulcer is chronic irritation of the stomach wall by excessive stomach acid both in quantity and acidity. Thus the condition that underlies the appearance of these ulcers is behavior or a lifestyle that is not friendly to the stomach. Another possibility for this condition is Helicobacter pylori infection which causes stomach acid to increase and the mucus membranes from the stomach to drain.
If it is caused by non-bacteria, then the action that must be taken is to live a lifestyle that is good for the stomach. This can be started by limiting the consumption of spicy foods or coconut milk, as well as caffeinated drinks such as coffee. In addition, arrange for a regular eating schedule and try to have good psychological stress management. If the condition does not improve, it may be necessary to take drugs that affect stomach acid so that its production does not irritate the stomach. The body will heal itself gastric ulcers, as long as the atmosphere is conducive, which is not too acidic so that cell repair can occur. Here we attach an article about gastric ulcers. May be useful.
