Peptic Ulcers




Peptic ulcers are intricate disruptions in the delicate balance of the digestive system. These open sores, which can form in the stomach lining, the upper part of the small intestine (duodenum), or even the esophagus, arise from a complex interplay between stomach acid and the body’s natural defenses. Despite their small size, peptic ulcers can cause significant discomfort and potentially serious health complications
These ulcers can cause varying degrees of pain and discomfort and are often associated with conditions such as gastritis and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The most common types of peptic ulcers are gastric ulcers (in the stomach) and duodenal ulcers (in the first part of the small intestine).




Peptic ulcers are primarily caused by an imbalance between the factors that protect the stomach lining and those that promote damage. Some common causes include

– infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori
– long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),
– excessive stomach acid production, and -lifestyle factors such as smoking and heavy alcohol consumption.




The symptoms of peptic ulcers can vary, but they often include:

1. Burning stomach pain.
2. Heartburn.
3. Nausea and vomiting.
4. Bloating and fullness.
5. Belching.
6. Loss of appetite.
7. Weight loss.
8. Dark or bloody stools (indicating bleeding).
