6 Symptoms of Gastric Ulcer and Foods to Avoid

Stomach ulcers are painful sores around the stomach wall and can be fatal! Beware of symptoms.

Stomach ulcers (also called peptic ulcers) occur in one in ten adults, and this condition is becoming more common. These ulcers can form in the small intestine or esophagus.

For ulcers, usually, when the thick layer of mucus to protect the gastric digestive juice is reduced, painful sores will form around the stomach. In this case, digestive acid will swallow the tissues in the stomach wall!

 Stomach ulcers should be treated as soon as possible to heal, but if they are not treated in time, the area will continue to eat, which may cause perforations and then bleed in the fatal place! (Surgery for gastric ulcers is usually not the best method because they are accompanied by adverse reactions, especially for women, so it is best to diagnose and start treatment as soon as possible)

Before your Stomach Ulcer Degenerates or you Are not Sure Which Symptoms to Watch for, Check the following:

1. Heartburn

Heartburn is an indicator of stomach ulcers. Ingesting spicy food can cause a burning sensation in the chest, but if it persists and over-the-counter medications do not relieve symptoms, please see a doctor.

2.Hiccups and Burps

If you continue to hit h and persistent after eating or drinking, or just "naturally", then it's time to see a doctor for proper examination.

 3. Stomach pain

Persistent stomach pain/sharp or dagger-like pain in the stomach may be an early sign of gastric ulcer and measures should be taken as soon as possible.

4. Flatulence

Bloating or feeling heavy even if there is no need to fill up with food, this may be another sign of stomach ulcer

5. Indigestion

Indigestion is another common symptom of gastric ulcers. If you continue to feel discomfort or indigestion after eating, see a doctor.

6. Nausea

Persistent nausea, especially after eating, needs to be resolved by seeing a doctor.

In Patients with Ulcers, it is Best to Avoid Certain Foods so as not to Irritate the Painful Areas:

1. Seasoning/Food

Spicy food irritates the stomach wall and expands the painful area. In some cases, spicy food can also make ulcer symptoms worse.

2. Coffee

Coffee does not actually cause ulcers, but it irritates the skin. The caffeine present in coffee will corrode the already sour parts (ulcers) and make them worse. If the goal is to heal the ulcers, it is best to stay away from coffee or reduce it to a minimum.

 3. Alcohol

Patients with ulcers should abstain from alcohol/alcoholic beverages as a whole. Drinking alcohol can increase gastric acid levels and make the ulcer worse, almost incurable.

4. Red meat

Patients with ulcers (especially peptic ulcers) should stay away from red meat! Red meat takes longer to digest, which raises the acid level in the stomach, irritating the area and exacerbating symptoms. You can use chicken, turkey, and other lean protein instead.

 5. Refined food
Pasta, white bread sugar, and more processed foods should be replaced with green leafy vegetables and vegetables. Antioxidants make the fruits contain a lot of water.
