The occurrence of gastric diseases is almost always preceded by gastritis. To avoid it, you need to choose a suitable diet, eliminating many harmful foods and alcohol.
Gastritis is especially relevant for those patients in whom it develops according to the principle “where it is thin, it breaks there.” If the stomach is a weak link (and this is already noticeable from childhood), then its owner should be attentive to the diet and diet. In the event that the stomach remains empty for more than five hours, the hydrochloric acid of its juice begins to corrode the rather resistant mucous membrane. Family cases of the disease are not uncommon, when several generations suffer from gastritis.
Current food products, in which, in order to increase the shelf life, components are added that increase the acidity of the stomach, also lead to gastritis. This causes inflammation — gastritis.
The disease can be manifested by pain, heaviness and discomfort in the mid-upper segment of the abdomen.
Heartburn often worries — when caustic gastric juice from an irritated organ is thrown into the esophagus. The tongue is covered with plaque, bad breath appears, and belching bothers.
Self-medication for gastritis is unacceptable, since the disease can imperceptibly pass into an ulcer and stomach cancer over time.
It is necessary to examine for the presence of pyloric Helicobacter pylori in the stomach.

Long-term maintenance treatment with an anti-acid agent is then indicated.
At this stage, appointments by a competent doctor and strict adherence to nutritional recommendations are mandatory.
