Gastritis is a stomach inflammation which is most often resulting from an infection with the same bacterium which is causing the majority of stomach ulcers. The diseaes is expressed as loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and acid regurgitation.
Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach. It can be caused by excessive consumption of alcohol, using aspirin and other anti-inflammatory pain medication (such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs), bacteria (Helicobacter pylori) or large amounts of physical stress such a surgery, consuming caustic or corrosive substances, or competitive sports. A rare form of gastritis exists in which the body’s own immune system attacks the stomach (atrophic gastritis).
Gastritis symptoms include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, acid regurgitation with an unpleasant taste in the mouth, or pressure in the upper chest. In a handful of cases the inflammation can cause damage to the stomach lining and cause it to bleed. Atrophic gastritis and bacterial gastritis can lead to stomach ulcers over a extended period of time.
The type of treatment given for the inflammation of the stomach is dependent on its cause. The doctor may perform an endoscopy and take a tissue sample to confirm diagnosis. Injurious medications (aspirin, NSAIDs), alcohol, and other triggers should be avoided. Antibiotics and acid reducing medications are used to treat a Helicobacter pylori bacterial infection of the stomach. Atrophic gastritis is treated with the administration of supplemental vitamin B12.
