Try it and see: Gastritis is a term that refers to inflammation of the stomach lining due to any cause. Gastritis may come on suddenly (acute) or develop and persist over time (chronic). The common causes of Gastritis are H. Pylori and NSAIDS. Dehydration can worsen symptoms in gastritis. Each individual responds differently to various foods and drinks, including Slim-fast. Make sure you drink lots of water.
