If after eating you experience discomfort and pain in the stomach, you should consult a doctor. Perhaps you have gastritis - a rather unpleasant disease caused by inflammation of the stomach lining. As a result, the digestion of food worsens, weakness, fatigue and general intoxication of the body are observed. Gastritis is acute and chronic. An acute illness first occurs suddenly and has pronounced symptoms, they should not be confused with the first signs of appendicitis or other diseases. If you do not complete the full course of treatment or continue to abuse unwanted foods, lead an unhealthy lifestyle, the disease can become chronic. Chronic gastritis is slow and severe.
What is the cause of the disease?
There are several factors that provoke gastritis.
Incorrect nutrition is in the first place. Most often, this disease affects people who eat a lot of spicy and salty foods, like very hot dishes. Eating dry food and eating irregularly also negatively affect the condition of our gastrointestinal tract.
The doctors' advice is pretty simple. It is necessary to adhere to the principles of a healthy diet, which means that you should eat rationally and fully. Too fatty and fried foods, fresh baked goods, chocolates and sweets, fruits with a rough skin (for example, grapes), carbonated drinks should be excluded from the diet. Give preference to boiled potatoes, sweet apples, bananas. Porridge has a good effect on the gastric mucosa, oatmeal porridge is especially useful.
Dairy products are indicated for patients with high acidity. Substances that make up milk neutralize the effect of gastric juice on mucous membranes, reduce heartburn. Of meat products, rabbit meat is preferable, it is well digested and does not burden the stomach. In addition, it increases the body's endurance and performance. Do not forget that you must eat 4-5 times a day, no less.
Various infections of the oral cavity can become the cause of the disease: inflamed tonsils, teeth affected by caries.
In this case, it is imperative to be examined by the appropriate doctors, eliminate the original cause, and then treat the existing disease. Ideally, a dental check-up should be done every six months.
Diseases and infections of the gastrointestinal tract can also trigger an attack of gastritis.
Therefore, at the first sign of malaise, immediately contact a specialist who can correctly diagnose and begin treatment.
Long-term use of certain drugs (most antibiotics, drugs containing aspirin) leads to damage to the gastric mucosa.
Do not abuse drugs and prescribe them yourself. After all, trying to cure one disease, you cause irreparable harm to other organs and systems.
