GASTRITIS

CAUSES – Gastritis is associated with different types of medications, medical and surgical conditions, physical stresses, social habits, chemicals, and infections.  The erosion of the stomach lining is caused by aspirin and other over-the-counter and prescriptions medicines.

TREATMENT – Treatment will depend on the extent of the cause of the gastritis. Some treatments target the exact cause of a particular type.  Most treatments aim at reducing symptoms.

PREVENTION – The main focus of gastritis prevention is to avoid the things that irritate or inflame the stomach’s lining such as aspirin, smoking, caffeine, and alcohol.
