Gastritis – causes, signs, symptoms in adultsand gastric gastritis treatment

Gastritis — воспаление слизистой оболочки (в ряде случаев и
более глубоких слоев) стенки stomach. Behindболевание приводит к
reduction in the quality of food processing gastric juice, because of what
the entire gastrointestinal tract is destabilized, and the body begins to experience
lack of substances even with a varied diet.

Symptoms are stomach pain on an empty stomach or after a meal,
тошнота, рвота, запоры или поносы и др. В связи с множеством
varieties of this disease, the term “gastritis” is a collective
and serves to refer to a variety of origin of inflammatory
and dystrophic changes in the mucosa of this organ.

In the article we will consider: what is this disease, what reasons and
symptoms, as well as how to treat gastritis in adults without consequences and
properly follow a diet.

What is gastritis?

Gastritis (лат. gastritis) — это воспаление слизистого слоя
stomach, leading to dysfunction of the body. Gastritis
it is dangerous because if it is not properly treated or if it is damaged
mucous membranes of the stomach with concentrated acids, alkalis
or chemicals, the disease can be fatal.
to the end In addition, gastritis may be harbingers
oncological processes in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT).

The stomach is the most vulnerable part of the digestive system. In him
there are at least three complex digestive processes: this
mechanical mixing of food coma, chemical cleavage
food and nutrient absorption. Most commonly damaged
the inner wall of the stomach – the mucous membrane where it occurs
production of two mutually exclusive components of digestion –
желудочного сока и защитной mucus.

Currently, gastritis can already be called a disease of the century.
Both adults and children are ill. And according to statistics
health, in Russia about 50% of the population has gastritis in
any form.


Gastritis проявляется воспалением и разрушением слизистой оболочки
stomach. The inflammatory reaction in the human body is always
develops in response to the action on healthy tissue damaging
factors. In the case of gastritis, it may be an infection, chemical
substances high or low temperatures.

бактерия Helicobacter pylori при гастрите

Thus, the main causes of this pathology are now
are placed like this:

  • воздействие бактерий и грибков на стенки stomach;
  • нарушения nutrition;
  • alcohol abuse;
  • drug intake;
  • presence of worm infestations;
  • chronic stress.

Internal causes of disease include:

  • hereditary predisposition to gastrointestinal
  • the presence of duodenal reflux;
  • violation of the protective properties of cells at the immune level;
  • hormonal metabolic disturbances;
  • reflex transmission of pathogenesis from neighboring organs.

But the main cause of gastritis is bacterium.
Helicobacter pylori, which is found in 85% of registered

Very often the cause of gastritis is the wrong mode.
power supply:

  • Hasty food and poorly chewed food or food “in dry bread”
    injure mucous membrane mechanically
  • Eating too hot or too cold food.
    causes gastritis due to thermal damage to the mucous
  • Eating spicy food (mostly spicy and
    highly salty food) irritates the stomach lining in a similar way
    exposure to caustic chemicals.


Gastritisы классифицируют по нескольким показателям — по типу, по
localization of the inflammatory process, according to the etiological factor,
on the endoscopic picture, on the morphological changes of the mucous
оболочки stomach. All these indicators are very important for the diagnosis and
choice of treatment of the disease.

Depending on the degree of damage and duration of exposure
irritating factors emit acute and chronic gastritis.

Acute гастрит

Under acute gastritis understand one-time and rapid
gastric mucosal inflammation caused by exposure
damaging factors of various etiologies (drugs, poisons, infected
microorganisms food, alcohol, etc.). With условии правильного
treatment, acute gastritis (depending on the form) lasts up to 5-7
days, however, the full recovery of the stomach occurs much

Withзнаки острого воспаления слизистой проявляются внезапно и
caused by overeating, substandard food, allergic
reaction to certain foods, stress.

If you do not eliminate the factors that irritate the mucous membrane, inflammation
becomes chronic.

Depending on the clinical manifestations and nature of damage
gastric mucosa are considered the following types of acute

  • catarrhal is the mildest form
    diseases in which only the topmost mucous membrane suffers
    ткани stomach. This type of gastritis occurs as a result of food
    poisoning or allergies to food, drugs. Stomach
    may suffer from a strong emotional overstrain,
    overeating .;
  • fibrinous – with this form of gastritis at the site of inflammation
    protein is released – fibrin contained in blood plasma and having
    fibrous structure. Externally, the place of such inflammation
    (diphtheria) covered with a hazy film of yellow-brown or
    gray color. Under it – numerous erosions of the mucous,
    the formation of which can lead to abscess, that is
    phlegmonous gastritis. ;
  • некротический — не совсем обычная форма гастрита, он
    occurs as a result of chemical poisoning. With
    попадании, к примеру, в желудочно-кишечный тракт кислот,
    a so-called coagulative necrosis is formed if it is
    salts – kollikvatsionny .;
  • reflux – the most
    серьезная форма острого гастрита. Can be
    следствием катарального гастрита. Accompanied by defeat
    всех слоев stomach. In the most severe cases can end
    fatal. Requires immediate medical attention.

Chronic gastritis

Chronic gastritis – длительное рецидивирующее воспаление
gastric mucosa, during which develops a number
her dystrophic changes:

  • increased infiltration
  • violation of the regenerative function of the epithelium of the glands,
  • proliferation of connective tissue.

Withзнаки хронического гастрита у взрослых выражаются в следующих

  • sweating after eating;
  • losing weight;
  • heartburn;
  • pallor of the skin;
  • language of the tongue.

According to the etiology of chronic gastritis is divided into:

  • Associated with the bacteria Helicobacter pylori.
  • Autoimmune, caused by the formation of antibodies to cells
  • Chemically mediated, that is, arising from long
    use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs,
    or, in a different way, NPVS) or throwing of bile into the stomach.
  • Idiopathic, that is, mediated by repeated exposure
    on the stomach of the same factor.
  • Eosinophilic, having an allergic nature.
  • Granulomatous gastritis that occurs along with granulomatous
    inflammation of other organs: Crohn’s disease, tuberculosis,
    sarcoidosis and others.

Also emit:

  • Superficial gastritis
  • Atrophic
  • Reflux gastritis.

Depending on the secretory activity of the stomach secrete

  • with increased or normal acidity;
  • with low or no acidity.

The symptoms of these conditions can be distinguished, but
The final diagnosis is based on the analysis of gastric juice,
taken by sensing. In some cases, the pH of gastric juice
determined by indirect methods using urine tests.

Remember that determine the type, shape and course of gastritis
can only a doctor. Do not take medical
funds, prescribed to your friends and relatives – each individual
the form of gastritis requires an individual approach and a drug that
helped who helped one person cope with gastritis
have a devastating effect on the body of another.

  • peritonitis, sepsis: it is characteristic of purulent phlegm
  • анемия (малокровие), дефицит витамина B12: развивается
    due to inadequate absorption of vitamin B12 in the stomach. For the same
    the cause may develop iron deficiency anemia;
  • pancreatitis: gastritis can be the impetus for the development of inflammation
    pancreas, especially with additional
    risk factors – alcohol consumption, drug intake
    drugs, smoking;

    lead to a significant depletion of the body;
  • peptic ulcer: in the absence or inadequate
    treatment may progress the defeat of the stomach walls;
  • gastric cancer: gastritis is a risk factor for the occurrence
    oncological pathology of the stomach.


Diagnostics любого вида гастрита должна обязательно включать в
consultation of such doctors,
как гастроэнтеролог и эндоскопист.  To not
just suspect the pathological process, and establish itself in
correct assumptions, the patient must be sent to
diagnostic examination.

В ходе диагностики гастрита специалисту необходимо
establish the main cause of the pathology. From this in
much will depend on further therapy.

The disease in adults is diagnosed using such
research like:

  • gastroscopy – examination of the gastric mucosa special
  • biopsy;
  • the study of gastric juice in the laboratory;
  • analysis of feces, blood.

A sample of part is used to detect Helicobacter pylori.
mucous membranes, withdrawn with FGDS, or blood – in her study
determine if it contains specific antibodies against
bacteria of interest.

Only the results of a comprehensive diagnosis allows
