GASTRITIS

Book Review   by:sajeev vasudevan     Original Author: DR.SAJEEV VASUDEVAN
ª
 
Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining that can be caused by many factors, including irritation by agents such as drugs, alcohol, and corrosive chemicals; bacterial and viral infections; and allergies. The symptoms of acute gastritis include discomfort after eating, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite; they usually subside after identifying and dealing with the causative agent. Chronic gastritis, however, is more commonly the sign of some underlying disorder such as gastric or duodenal ulcers, iron deficiency anemia, or other diseases that involve the stomach. Atrophic gastritis, which involves the degeneration of the stomach lining, is most often observed in older persons, including those with pernicious anemia.
