Treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcers in “DoctorPRO” in Cherkasy, Bila Tserkva and Chernihiv
Peptic ulcer disease of the stomach and duodenum is characterized by lesions of the mucous membrane, on which shallow fissures appear first, and then extensive lesions occur, that affect muscle tissue. The disease often develops along with other gastrointestinal diseases such as gastritis, colitis, and duodenitis. The inflammation of the gastric mucosa uncured in time, becomes chronic and leads to structural changes in the cells, so the first erosions are formed. Deep ulcers often result in internal hemorrhage, and there is a risk of destruction of the intestinal walls.
In order to prevent the aggravation of the pathological condition, it is important to consult a qualified doctor in time. The symptoms of gastric and duodenal ulcers are not specific, and they can be mistaken for manifestations of other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Most often, the patient suffers from the following symptoms:
- the emergence of severe pain in the abdominal region: the pain increases after eating;
- feeling of heaviness in the stomach after eating; emergence of nausea and vomiting;
- blood-streaked stool.
Ulcer pain is often recurrent in nature and depends not only on diet and lifestyle, but also on the state of immunity and the presence of additional stress factors. According to statistics, the pain syndrome is exacerbated in the autumn and spring, while in summer and winter the ulcer can rarely disturb the patient.
Since such symptoms are noted in many diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, laboratory and instrumental diagnostics of gastric ulcer is required. In the gastroenterology department in “DoctorPRO”, an experienced gastroenterologist can conduct a detailed initial examination, prescribe tests and examinations. The data obtained enable not only to diagnose the disease accurately, but also to determine the extent of gastrointestinal lesion, and to learn the ulcer location.
Causes of gastric and duodenal ulcers
Peptic ulcer is a chronic pathological condition, so doctors do not distinguish an acute form. But a number of patients are faced with a sharp exacerbation of the disease caused by external or internal factors. Acute gastric ulcer (that is, exacerbation of the disease) is characterized by the appearance of sharp severe pain in the abdominal region. The pain is often accompanied by:
- febrile state;
- nausea and vomiting.
In the event of a serious injury, the most common complications of a stomach ulcer develop, such as internal bleeding and perforation. Also, a constant inflammatory process can lead to obstruction and the appearance of malignant tumors.
Chronic gastric ulcer occurs for various reasons. It can be provoked by the following:
- genetic predisposition;
- excessive intake of alcohol;
- unbalanced diet, with an abundance of smoked, fatty and spicy foods;
- infectious lesion of the gastrointestinal tract;
- mechanical abdominal trauma;
- unfavorable ecology;
- constant stress.
The exacerbation of gastric ulcer is observed when eating foods that irritate the mucous membrane, for example, peppered or fibrous food. Therefore, the prevention of gastric ulcer is associated with adherence to a special diet. Also, the following is recommended to the patient:
- give up smoking cigarettes and drinking alcoholic beverages;
- adhere to a healthy lifestyle: play sports, spend more time in the open air;
- avoid stressful situations;
- strengthen the immune system;
- devote enough time to rest.
