Good morning, I want to ask, in 2016, I was diagnosed by a doctor with severe anemia and did a transfusion of 4 blood bags because there was heavy bleeding that came out through the feces I excreted and vomited blood then my immune system always decreased until March 05 In 2018, I was hospitalized again and had a transfusion of 3 bags of blood. I was diagnosed again by the doctor for severe anemia and gastritis because I had done an endoscopy, which became my question why it was so difficult to cure this disease, even though I changed my diet and everything that had been done. recommended by a doctor? how to deal with it so it doesn’t happen again. thankster
Hello Ririn, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Gastritis is a term used to describe inflammatory conditions in the stomach. In general, gastritis can occur because the acid produced by the stomach (stomach acid) damages the mucosa (inner lining) of the stomach. Some things that increase a person's risk of developing gastritis include:
Helicobacter pylori infection in the stomach, regular use of painkillers (such as NSAIDs and corticosteroids), including if you often drink herbal remedies for aches and pains, excessive alcohol consumption, excess stress, autoimmune gastritis disease (a disease in which the body's immune cells damage the cells in gastric mucosa) the presence of other diseases such as HIV, Crohn's disease, parasitic infections in the gastrointestinal tract
As a first step, you should find out in advance whether you have certain risk factors that make you experience recurrent gastritis (as mentioned above). If you do have certain disease conditions such as Helicobacter pylori infection, autoimmune gastritis, or other diseases such as HIV or Crohn's, then these diseases must be treated first. If indeed the examination does not reveal any of the above diseases, then some things you can do regarding your diet and lifestyle include:
Try to eat less but more often (every 2-3 hours) Avoid consuming foods or drinks that are too oily, too spicy, and too acidic Avoid consuming foods or drinks that can increase stomach acid such as caffeinated drinks (coffee, tea), or chocolate Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. Reduce stress If you frequently consume certain drugs to reduce pain or consume certain herbs that aim to reduce pain and aches, then you should consult your doctor again about their use.
Gastritis is indeed a disease that requires treatment for a long time (it can be weeks, months, sometimes life-long treatment is needed in some people). Therefore, if your symptoms have disappeared after treatment, keep your diet and lifestyle and control your doctor regularly.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
