Sitting Posture Causing Gastritis
Yes: Your stomach continues receiving gastric acid whether you eat or not. Food intake helps buffer against that acidity, so if you don't eat, the gastric acid will irritate your stomach and cause inflammation, what is known as gastritis. Anything that increases this acidity, I.e, medications, anxiety, alcohol, etc worsens the inflammation. Not eating on time can aggravate temporary.
Gastritis: Gastritis typically does not cause hunger. In fact it usually causes the opposite:? Pain in the upper belly? Feeling bloated, or feeling full after eating a small amount of food? Decreased appetite? Nausea or vomiting? Vomiting blood, or having black-colored bowel movements? Feeling more tired than usual – This happens if people with gastritis get a condition called “anemia.
Gastrititis: The gnawing pain is due to excess acid produced in gastritis
Anything that is hur: Any strong irritant can cause gastritis. If it is continued for long time, the gastritis becomes chronic. Common causes are frequent alcohol use, chronic pain medication with drugs like Aspirin or motrin. Then there is a common infection with a bacteria called h. Pylori which requires using a several weeks long course of antibiotics, best done under the guidance of a gastroenterologist.
Gastritis and Cancer: Several types of gastric cancer are closely related to infection with helicobacter pylori, which typically causes a chronic gastritis. Also, patients with autoimmune gastritis may develop a type of metaplasia that is a step towards cancer as well. So taking care to have dyspepsia or stomach pains evaluated is a good idea.
Various reasons...: The "gut" is all connected, by nerves, muscle fibers running inside the gut wall, and chemical signals (like hormones). If something is irritating one part of the gut (such as the stomach), changes can occur in other parts of the gut (the intestine). So, if stomach irritation leads to the intestine not re-absorbing digestive fluids or to it having faster transit time, there will be diarrhea.
