Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. Your condition might have multifactorial causes. Certain conditions and activities may increase your risk for developing gastritis, such as :

  • extreme alcohol consumption
  • routine use of NSAIDs like ibuprofen and aspirin
  • cocaine use
  • age, because the stomach lining (thins naturally with age)

Talk to a gastroenterologist to address your stomach problems and get their expert opinion.

Other less common risk factors include:

  • stress caused by severe injury, illness, or surgery
  • autoimmune disorders
  • digestive disorders like (Crohn’s disease)
  • viral infections

For better explanation, we encourage you to meet the Doctor to seek medical advices.

Avoid the nuisance stomach problems with the right care for your digestive system.
