Gastroduodenitis – what is it, causes, signs,symptoms, treatment in adults and diet

Гастродуоденит – это сочетанное воспаление слизистой
the lining of the stomach (more often its pylorus) and the 12-pernal
intestine characterized by impaired secretion and motility
gastrointestinal tract. About 50% of the adult population
The country suffers from this disease. Causes of formation
diseases are so diverse that their wrong
recognition can lead to complications and negative

What is this disease, what are the causes and symptoms, and
what is the danger of this diagnosis and what treatment is prescribed to adults for
rapid recovery of the body.

What is gastroduodenitis?


Гастродуоденит — (gastroduodenitis) — это воспалительное
disease of the mucous membrane of the duodenum and pyloric zone
stomach. As a result of disease progression,
stomach, pancreas, biliary tract.

Gastroduodenitis in adults of middle and old age
is relatively rare, more often this disease affects
young and young men and women. In principle, the younger
category – the more often its representatives develop
gastroduodenitis. This is due to the fact that at a young age more often
there are errors in diet, abuse of smoking and

You can make a diagnosis if a person loses weight, he has
there is a pronounced pallor of the skin, pain when
palpation of the abdomen, yellowish plaque on the tongue and teeth imprints on
side surface.


Depending on the prevailing etiological factor

  • primary (exogenous) gastroduodenitis. Develops under
    the influence of exogenous factors – malnutrition, exposure
    on the mucous membrane of aggressive chemical and temperature agents,
    HP infection.
  • secondary (endogenous) gastroduodenitis. Appears on the background
    disorders of the endocrine, immune and other body systems, with
    diseases of other organs of the digestive tract.

Helicobacter infection:

  • HP-positive (Helicobacter detected in the stomach);
  • HP is negative (there is no helicobacter in the stomach).

By the duration of the course gastroduodenitis is divided into such

Acute gastroduodenitis

Acute gastroduodenitis – заболевание длится до 3- месяцев. On
this stage, in addition to the mucous membranes of the stomach, affects and
duodenum, resulting in impaired motility
the digestive system, the passage of food becomes
embarrassing. The acute form of gastroduodenitis is a consequence
gastritis, often the disease develops into a chronic stage.

Chronic form

Mostly chronic gastroduodenitis develops on the background of acute
forms of the disease as a result of the lack of treatment or
незавершенного варианта этого treatment. Meanwhile, it is not excluded and
variant of primary chronic gastroduodenitis that appears
already in chronic form and characterized by alternating states
remission with aggravation. The duration of the disease is longer
half a year

A noticeable difference between these forms of gastroduodenitis in pain syndrome.
In the first case, there are non-permanent and short-term pain, and
in chronic course, pain is less pronounced, but is practically
permanent character.

By type and depth of the inflammatory process on the mucous membrane
of the stomach and duodenum, determined endoscopically (in
during gastroduodenoscopy):

Types of disease Description
Superficial gastroduodenitis
  • mucous membrane of the stomach and duodenum inflamed, on it
    no erosion, and the glands are functioning normally.
Hypertrophic (nodular) gastroduodenitis
  • due to inflammation of the gastric mucosa and
    duodenum thickens, forms folds and
Erosive gastroduodenitis
  • manifested by the formation of multiple small wounds on
    mucous membrane of the stomach and duodenum, with this
    form possible metaplasia of the intestinal epithelium
    cells characteristic of the intestine, their normal should not be).
Mixed form
  • The mucous membrane in general has the form, as in hypertrophic
    gastroduodenitis, however, there are pockets of atrophy

Depending on the acidity, gastroduodenitis is distinguished:

  • With increased acidity or gastric secretion
    (the most frequent variant of the disease)
  • With normal secretory function
  • With reduced secretion, which often accompanies
    злокачественные опухоли stomach.

The reasons

Независимо от причин появления патология всегда приводит
к изменениям в слизистой желудка и ДПК.

The cause of acute gastroduodenitis most often are:

  • poisoning by chemical irritants and food
  • exposure to very spicy foods and pesticides contained in
  • acute infectious gastrointestinal and some chronic
    general diseases;
  • eating disorders and stressful conditions leading to
    hypersecretion (increased secretion) of hydrochloric acid in the stomach on
    фоне снижения ее защитных functions.

When exposed to pathological etiological factors
gastric mucosa and duodenal ulcer develops
inflammatory reaction that leads to impaired physiological
regeneration of the mucous membrane and the development of its atrophy.

In general, the occurrence of gastroduodenitis is based on a combination
influencing factors that can be comprehensively
power errors (in terms of the listed effects
экзогенного типа), инфицирование бактерией helicobacter
pylori и психогенное воздействие.

All these factors lead to a violation of the secretory and motor
functions. As a rule, when gastroduodenitis note increased tone
и моторики желудка, дискинезию двенадцатиперстной кишки.

Симптомы гастродуоденита у взрослых

The symptoms of gastroduodenitis are extremely diverse, and the form of manifestation
they depend on the nature of the flow.

Among the main clinical manifestations of gastroduodenitis can
note the following:

кожи, головокружения, снижение веса, нарушения сна.

ulcer-like flow.

The greatest severity and intensity of all these symptoms
acquires a period of relapse (exacerbations). There are pains especially
strong, often accompanied by severe heartburn, nausea, vomiting
and often stop only after taking medication

intensifying during the exacerbation.

    skin integument;
  • fast fatiguability.

The disease has an undulating course. There are two periods:

  • remission during which the patient does not present any
  • exacerbation accompanied by the appearance of clinical symptoms
    lesions of the digestive tract.


Based on the symptoms of the disease, an additional
instrumental and laboratory examination, which includes

  • The main role in the diagnosis is played by endoscopy,
    which allows you to assess the condition of the mucous.
  • Гистологическое исследование  дает возможность узнать,
    Is there inflammation and atrophic process?
  • A blood test – indicates the presence of inflammation in
    body (increased ESR and leukocytes);
  • X-ray – this method of research is not
    obligatory but allows differentiating gastroduodenitis from
    other diseases of the digestive tract with similar symptoms.
    X-rays with barium additionally allow to evaluate
    evacuation function of the stomach.
  • To obtain reliable information regarding motor
    functions need to hold antroduodenal manometry. Besides
    this is practiced assessment of motor function through
    electrogastrography (EGG), ultrasound (with pre-filling
    stomach fluid).

Gastroduodenitis treatment

Treatment of severe gastroduodenitis should be carried out in
отделении гастроэнтерологии. With the development of acute condition
for complete cure, one course of therapy and compliance
strict diet. Complaints of repeated episodes of the disease require
re-consultation of a gastroenterologist and a full-fledged

Gastroduodenitis treatment в острой и хронической обострившейся
The form is as follows:

  • Bed rest during the week;

    stomach and duodenum.


Depending on whether the acidic environment is low or high,
impaired intestinal motility and stomach and how affected
mucous membrane, the doctor prescribes the type of drugs and dosage.
You can not treat gastroduodenitis alone, using only
one type of medicine. On the body should be made integrated
impact, otherwise the inflammatory process will not dolekene and
complications will arise.

    This therapy has its drawbacks, as it leads
    к дисбактериозу кишечника и расстройствам
  2. Antacids to relieve pain, reduce
    acidity of gastric juice and protection of the gastric mucosa
    the stomach from damaging factors – Almagel, Alyumag, Vikalin,
    Vikair, Gastal, Maalox, Phosphalugel.
  3. Спазмолитические и обезболивающие средства (But-шпа, Дротаверин,
    Duspatalin and others);
  4. Substitution treatment drugs used in cases
    gastroduodenitis combined with diseases of the pancreas –
    Abomin, Panzinorm, Mezim, Creon, Penzital, etc.
  5. Restorative remedies and vitamin complexes.

With timely treatment, no exacerbations
