It should be noted that with the latest therapies in our possession for the treatment of hypersecretory dyspetic disease and benign stomach ulcers in general, it is no longer necessary to subject the ulcerative and dyspeptic patient to special diets.
Gastroscopy: stomach cancer often hides behind a stomach ulcer.
Gastroscopy: stomach cancer often hides behind a gastric ulcer.
In fact, adequate treatment with proton pump inhibitors (Omeprazole, Lanzoprazole, Pantoprazole, Rabeprazole, Esomeprazole) and with the use of antacid drugs (sodium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate and aluminum and magnesium hydroxide) is possible already immediately obtain a good regression of the dyspetic symptoms, that is the sensation of pain and burning epigastric and restosternal pyrosis with slow digestion and repetition, without resorting to particular diets.
Conversely, at one time, special diets were used for the
ulcerative patient. For example, a classic diet was the "milk diet". The patient
with ulcer had to take milk and dairy products, avoid meat broth, spices,
chocolate, fruit juices, mint, smoke, onion etc. In any case, because many of
you have sent us e-mail to know precisely what is indicated to eat in case of
ulcer disease, we will try to answer your questions from this gastroenterology
website, premising that in any case it is always your doctor in charge of the
only person responsible for your health, investigations and treatment to which
you are subject. This clarified, we urge you, however, and in any case, always
start the appropriate investigations, if you suffer from epigastric pain that
you think is a benign gastric ulcer, because otherwise it can conceal a
cancerous ulcer of the stomach.
This is to tell you that, in the approach of a gastroenterological patient, the
simple occult blood of the stool and a trivial gastroscopy can often save your
life and direct the best care, also because many diseases exchanged for simple
ulcers hide the danger of infection from Helicobacter pylori and that during an
endoscopic investigation it is possible to collect gastric mucosal frustules and
research this bacterium.
Important is always to avoid:
- Spicy food, spices, condiments
- fried and fried
- dadies of meat and broth of meat (remember that the peptoni contained in the broth stimulate the gastric acid, what are the peptoni? These are very small parts of the proteins that are potential stimulators precisely of the acid secretion of the stomach)
- acid fruit juices
