Peptic Ulcer Disease

Any area of the GI system that comes into contact with gastric secretion, such as the lower oesophagus, stomach, and duodenum, is susceptible to developing ulcers. Only in an acidic environment do ulcers develop. An ulcer can develop without having a lot of stomach acid. A person with a gastric ulcer has normal to less than normal gastric acidity when compared to a person with a duodenal ulcer. In the past, people used to think that certain foods or stress may cause ulcers. However, no evidence supporting their opinions has been provided. Ulcers are caused by two main factors, according to research

  • Bacteria Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)
  • NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
