Acute gastritis can be caused by eating poor-quality food, food poisoning, viral infection, and taking some aggressive medicines. Gastritis can also accompany other diseases, especially those associated with metabolic disorders.
If acute gastritis is suspected, it is necessary to empty the stomach from the contents. Drink 2-3 glasses of warm water, induce vomiting by pressing on the root of the tongue. Repeat the procedure until you get clear water exiting the stomach. Having cleared the stomach, take adsorbents (activated carbon, smecta). To relieve pain symptoms, you can take an antispasmodic.
The first time after this, you must adhere to a strict sparing diet. Frequent consumption of warm liquid is recommended (chamomile tea will be especially useful), refusal of food for the first few hours. Gradually, you can include soups, liquid cereals, soft-boiled eggs in the diet.
Chronic gastritis is accompanied by structural reorganization of the mucous membrane and a decrease in the functions of the stomach. A person with chronic gastritis suffers from a heaviness in the abdomen, heartburn, belching, nausea, especially while eating.
A person with chronic gastritis should follow a sparing diet. You should not use spicy or very hot foods, carbonated drinks, coffee, canned food, fast food. Alcohol is contraindicated.
