Cold weather to watch peptic ulcer
Ulcer disease is a common chronic systemic diseases, were divided into gastric and duodenal ulcers, also known as peptic ulcer. According to relevant statistics, 10% of the population have suffered from peptic ulcer in life.
Recently, with the invasion of cold air once again, out on more and more patients with peptic ulcer. Recently, a reporter for "peptic ulcer" is an interview with the Third People's Hospital of Zhengzhou City, director of Dr. Wang Zhiqing liver.
Dr. Wang Zhiqing said, gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer is due to gastric acid and pepsin digestion on the formation of mucous membrane itself.
How to distinguish between gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer?
Life, we tend to gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, said together, then the gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer in the end, how different? Dr. Wang Zhiqing said, gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer disease, the symptoms broadly similar, but slightly different, mainly for the onset of different parts.
Gastric ulcer patients, and after dinner will immediately feel stomach discomfort, often have stomach pain, bloating, belch, belching, acid reflux and other symptoms. However, if the stomach does not eat food for a long time, or eating less, and thus, the stimulation of food on a small stomach ulcer, the patient will feel stomach discomfort.
Symptoms in patients with duodenal just the opposite, the main symptoms are mainly pain, but patients had something to eat, the pain will ease. After the patients eaten food to stimulate gastric acid secretion, increased gastrointestinal motility, a combination of gastric acid. Patients usually presented more duodenal night pain, night stomach to digest food, stomach emptying, gastric acid concentration of small, vagus nerve stimulation of gastric acid secretion. Increase the pain.
Helicobacter pylori is a pathogen of peptic ulcer
Many patients with stomach discomfort, went to hospital for examination, the doctor told that H. pylori infection, then what is the Helicobacter pylori it?
Most patients with peptic ulcer and Helicobacter pylori infection has a relationship, the relationship between Helicobacter pylori in gastric ulcer patients accounted for 70% -80%, duodenum relationship between patients and accounted for 90% of the Helicobacter pylori Helicobacter pylori is A single pole, multi flagella, the end rounded, curved spiral bacteria in gastric epithelial cell surface often has a typical spiral or curved. Dr. Wang Zhiqing said in the past people in the understanding of the limitations of Helicobacter pylori, as medical research and clinical validation, treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection can accelerate the healing of ulcers and greatly reduce the ulcer recurrence rate. Clinically, single-drug therapy with anti-Helicobacter pylori, eradication of H. pylori, we can effectively heal gastric and duodenal ulcers.
Dr. Wang Zhiqing states: clinical validation, with the treatment of Helicobacter pylori in the emergence of antimicrobial drugs, and treatment is very good, inpatient admissions of patients with peptic ulcer is less and less patient with peptic ulcer patients by diagnosis. Patients after medication (taking antimicrobial drugs, proton pump drugs) to treatment, the PH value of the acidity of gastric acid can reach 7 or higher, gastric acid is low, the stimulation of pepsin for small, thus, can achieve clinical complete ulcer healing.
Recurrent peptic ulcer
About ulcers, we will think of oral ulcers, corneal ulcers, then with the mouth ulcers are peptic ulcer, recurrent corneal ulcers will do the same?
Dr. Wang Zhiqing said, peptic ulcer, the incidence in men is about 3 times the women, mainly related to genetic peptic ulcer, hyperacidity, bile reflux, smoking, season and other factors. Often associated with upper gastrointestinal peptic ulcer bleeding, ulcer perforation, pyloric obstruction and other complications.
In the autumn, winter and spring seasons, the peptic ulcer patients will be gradually increased, mainly due to seasons, climate, temperature, and stomach with a series of changes to adapt to temperature, so that, something not easily digested food , acid concentration will increase, leading to ulcers.
Smokers, because nicotine in tobacco ingredients can cause intestinal vasoconstriction, insufficient blood supply to the gastrointestinal tract, causing gastric dystrophy, mucosal barrier damage.
Repeated recurrence of peptic ulcer are more common in patients with peptic ulcer once a predisposing factor, like smoking, drinking, drinking tea, coffee and some mental condition such as depression, mood swings will trigger the occurrence of peptic ulcer.
Dr. Wang Zhiqing reminder: To avoid the occurrence of peptic ulcer, usually living, should keep warm, not smoking, less drinking, develop good habits, Eat less spicy food stimulation, regular meals to eat.
