No: Infection in the bladder and or kidney per se does not cause gastritis. However the medication you may take for the infection may result in inflammation and or infection in the gasto-intestinal tract. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine
