Gastritis is a common condition, which unfortunately affects a large chunk of society today. Gastritis is the inflammation of the stomach lining which may be caused by a bacterial infection or by a chemical reaction.
It manifests as a burning sensation in the stomach caused by an excessive secretion of hydrochloric acid (HCl), which may corrode the inner lining of the stomach if prolonged, and eventually affect other parts of the digestive system. Gastric problems may occur suddenly or gradually over time. Some of the symptoms of Gastritis include vomiting, abdominal pain and/or bloating nausea, loss of appetite, indigestion etc.
Gastritis can be caused due to a number of reasons such as excessive alcohol consumption, a weakened immune system, persistent, intense stress, bile reflux (bile flowing into the stomach), and illnesses, such as diabetes or kidney failure etc.
Eating smaller and more frequent meals is recommended if you experience frequent indigestion and burning sensation. Spicy and fatty foods must be avoided. Opt for green tea instead of carbonated and caffeinated drinks.
