Gastritis is the general term used to describe inflammation or irritation of the stomach lining (gastric mucosa). This inflammation can occur acutely or chronically and can be caused by various factors, including bacterial infections, excessive alcohol consumption, prolonged use of certain medications, and autoimmune disorders.

CAUSES OF GASTRITIS:

-Gastritis Causes and Risk Factors

• Helicobacter pylori infection: Causes chronic gastritis and increases the risk of stomach ulcers and cancer.
• Excessive alcohol consumption: Irritates stomach lining, leading to gastritis.
• Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): Damages stomach lining and causes gastritis.
• Bile reflux: Inflammation and irritation from small intestine bile back into the stomach.
• Autoimmune disorders: The immune system attacks the stomach lining.
• Stress and diet: Prolonged stress and spicy, acidic, or processed foods contribute to gastritis.

SYMPTOMS OF GASTRITIS:

• Abdominal pain or discomfort.
• Nausea, vomiting.
• Bloating.
• Loss of appetite.
• Burning sensation in upper abdomen/chest.
• Belching, hiccups, indigestion.

DIAGNOSIS OF GASTRITIS:

To diagnose gastritis, your doctor may perform the following tests:
• Physical examination and medical history review
• Blood tests to check for H. pylori infection or other underlying conditions
• Endoscopy (a procedure that uses a tiny camera to examine the stomach lining)
• Biopsy (taking a small tissue sample from the stomach lining for analysis)

TYPES OF GASTRITIS:

Gastritis Types Overview
• Acute gastritis: Caused by food poisoning, excessive alcohol, or certain medications.
• Chronic gastritis: Long-lasting, caused by H. pylori infection, autoimmune disorders, or prolonged exposure to irritants.
• Erosive gastritis: Stomach lining eroded or ulcers develop due to excessive alcohol or NSAID use.
• Atrophic gastritis: Thinning and deterioration of stomach lining, reduced stomach acid production, increased risk of stomach cancer.

MEDICINE FOR GASTRITIS:
