What Is Meant By Gastritis?
Tonight. I want to consult with a doctor, what is the diagnosis of Antrum and Pyloric Gastritis? What kind of disease is that? The thing is that my mother has this disease, please explain it🙏
Hello Alvin, Thank you for the question.
Gastritis is an inflammatory condition in the stomach wall. Normally, the stomach wall is covered by a layer of mucus (mucosa) which functions to protect the stomach from stomach acid. If the mucous layer is damaged, the stomach wall will be exposed to stomach acid and more easily inflamed. Symptoms that can be experienced by patients such as heartburn that feels sore or hot, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, decreased appetite, easy to fill, black bowel movements, or vomiting blood. The mucus layer on the stomach wall can be damaged along with age but can also be caused by bacterial infections, side effects of consumption of certain drugs, side effects of consumption of alcoholic beverages. To find out whether a person has gastritis, further examination is needed by the doctor and other examinations such as examinations to detect Helicobacter pylori and endoscopy.
Anthrax and pylorics are part of the stomach. Pay attention to the following picture:
So antrum and pylorus gastritis is gastritis that occurs in the area of the antrum and pylorus.
To overcome this condition, the doctor will give medicines that serve to neutralize and control stomach acid. Antibiotics can also be given if from a doctor's examination proved a bacterial infection. Please advise your mother to follow the medication recommended by the doctor and check herself routinely according to the doctor's recommended schedule. Also, encourage your mother to do the following tips:
consumption of food in small portions but more often
avoid consuming spicy, sour, oily foods
avoid consuming caffeinated, fizzy, and alcoholic drinks
avoid consumption of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as diclofenac, ibuprofen, aspirin
manage stress well
If symptoms do not improve after treatment and after the above recommendations, do not hesitate to consult with your doctor for further examination and treatment.
I hope this helps.
