Causes of gastric problems

What are the Causes of Gastric Problems?

Symptoms relating to gastric acid can often be traced to these causes – unhealthy lifestyle, peptic ulcer and acid reflux.

1. Unhealthy Lifestyle

2. Peptic Ulcer

Peptic ulcer or stomach ulcer is a break in the lining of the stomach, duodenum and occasionally the lower oesophagus due to gastric erosion on the protective mucous lining.

3. Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is a condition where contents of the stomach travel upwards into the oesophagus as a result of a weak lower oesophageal muscle. Gastric backflow is the cause of irritation and discomfort.

If the root cause of a gastric discomfort like the above mentioned is not addressed, it may lead to a recurrence of gastric symptoms over and over again and result in long-term dependency on medications for pain relief.
