If You Have Ulcer, Stop Taking Too Much Of These 3 Things If You Want To Live Long

You are welcome to this page and it's my pleasure trying to sensitize on how too much intake of certain foods can cause ulcer. It is a disease which most people have no knowledge of the factors that can increase their risk of it.



An ulcer is a sore often caused by an initial abrasion and generally maintained by an inflammation and/or an infection.



Peptic ulcers are open sores that occurs inside the lining of your stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine.
Peptic ulcers are mostly caused by an infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like naproxen sodium. It's also worthy of note that spicy foods don't cause peptic ulcers but makes its symptoms to degenerate.
Some of The Symptoms Of Peptic Ulcer Are:
1. Heartburn.



2. Stomach pain.



3. Intolerance to fatty foods.



4. Bloating.



5. Ammonia breath.



6. Nausea or vomiting.



As earlier stated, certain things you take into the body system are responsible for your high risk of ulcer. If you continue to consume these foods, you end up putting yourself at the risk of death.



Below Are 3 Things You Should Stop Eating If You Have Ulcer:



Cigarette Smoking
Cigarette smoking is a risk factor for the development of peptic ulcer disease. Too smoking of cigarette has a side effect effect on gastric acid secretion, and also upper gastrointestinal function that could trigger pathogenesis of peptic ulcer disease. This is because the smoke you inhale interfers with the reduction in mucosal blood flow, inhibition of mucosal prostaglandin production, promotion of duodenogastric reflux, inhibition of pancreatic bicarbonate secretion, action of histamine-2 antagonists, and acceleration of gastric emptying of liquids.



Please do ensure to reduce alcohol smoking to live long.

Alcohol Drinking
There is no doubt that excessive drinking can take a toll on one’s health, it makes the immune system weak to the extent that the body becomes susceptible to any kind of disease.



Studies in recent years have shown that they is a relationship between alcohol drinking and peptic ulcers.



While a few glasses too many can make you feel pain in the gut, some medical experts are of the opinion that moderate drinking of alcohol may actually prevent the H. pylori bacteria from entering a into the stomach. In this way; drinking it in moderation is not bad, but drinking excessively can be very detrimental.



Stop drinking too much of alcohol as it will not help an ulcer heal but drinking it to stupor actually make the condition worse.

Spicy Foods
Spicy food doesn’t actually or directly cause ulcers, but causes irritation to the existing ulcers in human. According to research carried out by the CDC, ulcers are mostly caused by bacteria Heliobacter pylori (up to 80 percent of stomach ulcers and more than 90 percent of ulcers in the duodenum of the small intestine). Continuous use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as naproxen (Aleve), aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil), can destroy tissues which results to ulcers.



Even though spicy foods can’t directly cause ulcers, it’s advisable that you consume them moderately as they can trigger pain when you have ulcer.
