Peptic Ulcers

Our poor stomach being one of the most important organs in the gastrointestinal tract and performing a vital function of digesting food has sometimes to overcome many obstacles to be able to survive. And the worst is that the main difficulties for our stomach are being produced by us and our bad habits. Consumption of unhealthy food (not always in small amounts), prolonged usage of medications, drinking too much coffee and strong tee, not to mention misuse of alcohol and cigarettes, it is not a complete list of "tortures" that our stomach undergoes.

The stomach endures all these sufferings up to a certain moment when it simple can’t stand them any more and then begins to thank us for our irresponsible and improper attitude. Gastritis, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, different kinds of peptic ulcers (gastric ulcers and duodenal ulcers) and many other disorders and illnesses come as a result.

There are million of people all over the world, both men and women, young and old, even children that suffer from gnawing and burning pain in the abdomen, losing appetite and weight, ongoing nausea, vomiting blood or having blood in their stools; these are the main symptoms of such diseases as gastritis and peptic ulcers. There is much more to learn about these widely spread illnesses, their causes, symptoms, possible treatments and cure. Maybe it is not that interesting and exciting but it is of vital importance because the problem at issue is a well-being of our most significant digestive organ. Its good health and proper functioning spares us a lot of pain and unpleasant moments.
