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.
