When a person has the first signs of the gastrointestinal diseases, he passes the mandatory diagnosis in this case, aimed at identifying the type of stomach pathology present, the extent of its spread, and also the form in which it is present.
All inflammations of the gastric mucosa occur against a background of increased or decreased activity of the digestive enzyme, more simply, the level of acidity that is inherent in gastric juice.In the case when it is elevated, an antacid gastritis is diagnosed.
This type of disease is quite dangerous, because the accompanying increase in the acidic environment in the digestive enzyme acts very aggressively on the epithelial tissue of the mucous membrane, causing its burns, always leading to the formation of ulcerative defects.
Symptoms of antacid gastritis
Symptoms inherent in the antacid form of the disease, in addition to being similar to the signs of other inflammatory processes occurring in the gastric mucosa, also have their own distinctive features,
which they give an increase in digestive secretion.Among all the signs that accompany this pathology of the stomach, the most common are the following:
- The most characteristic symptom is heartburn.The increased content of acid in gastric juice creates a burning sensation of burning in the esophagus with antacid gastritis;
- Frequent burp with sourish taste is also a hallmark;
- Feeling of nausea during long breaks between meals, and after a person ate something sour, he has vomiting, which is the only way for the digestive organ to get rid of excess acid.In the case when erosions were already formed on the mucous membrane, bloody inclusions are found in the masses ejected from the stomach.
Also a symptom of antacid gastritis are the painful sensations in the epigastric region.But this is not the main sign, since spasmodic pain accompanies all pathologies of the digestive organs.
Any of the listed signs serves as an occasion for an immediate reference to a specialist in order to undergo the necessary diagnostic examination and start the appropriate treatment as soon as possible.
It is always aimed at normalizing the acidity of the gastric enzyme and preventing the occurrence of erosive lesions of the epithelium of the digestive organ.
Causes of antacid gastritis
All causes that can cause antacid gastritis are divided into external and internal.The following are the first ones:
- Work associated with harmful factors;
- Severe living conditions;
- Excessive use of certain medications, such as non-steroid drugs or antibiotics;
- Abuse of strong alcoholic beverages and tobacco;
- Spicy, spicy and fatty foods that predominate in a person's diet.
The second mostly refers to:
- Deficiency of amino acids and microelements in the body, as well as beriberi;
- Metabolic disorders;
- Parasitic diseases and chronic infections;
- Dysfunction of organs and tissues caused by prolonged hypoxia;
- Genetic predisposition.
The determination of the causes that led to the appearance of antacid gastritis is very important in the course of diagnosis, as the choice of the most effective method of treatment primarily depends on this.
