What is Peptic Ulcer and how does it affect you?

The term peptic ulcer is used to define the lesion located at the level of the stomach, duodenum or esophagus. It has been seen that these ulcers affect the entire gastrointestinal tract, which starts at the lining of the mouth and ends with the rectal region. Peptic ulcer reveals the involvement of hydrochloric acid and pepsin that play a major role in the development of the disorder. If too much gastric acid is produced then the mucosal membrane, responsible for protecting stomach and internal organs from danger is damaged. This enables bacteria like Helicobacter pylori to penetrate the barrier and result in problems. There are 3 kinds of peptic ulcers and the ulcer located in the stomach is called gastric ulcer. The one located at the level of the duodenum is known as duodenal ulcer and the ulcer developed in the esophagus is called esophageal ulcer. This is a very common, millions of people including both men and women. These peptic ulcers may develop into more serious disorders due to complications and thus leads to perforate or bleeding ulcer, which involves severe tearing of the mucosal membrane and can be very risky.

Symptoms of Peptic Ulcer
Some of the most common symptoms of peptic ulcer are fever, nausea, vomiting blood, presence of blood in the feces, dehydration, and fatigue and body weakness. Since these ulcers lead to severe blood loss, they may lead to anemia. The peptic ulcers usually occur in the areas of genetically inherited physiological abnormalities like inappropriate production of mucus and bicarbonate along with poor blood circulation at the level of the stomach. During these times the person suffering from these ulcers experiences sever burning sensations in the stomach, vomiting, blood excretion in the stools and other related symptoms.

Causes of the Peptic Ulcers
Infections with a type of bacterium called Helicobacter pylori are the major causes of peptic ulcers and various other factors also contribute to formation of these peptic ulcers. It has been seen that this disorder generally occurs as a consequence of infection with Helicobacter pylori bacteria, which are responsible for weakening the internal organs’ protective walls and permit gastric acids and pepsin to cause serious damage to soft tissues and organs. There are also factors like overproduction of digestive fluids that cause these ulcers. It has been seen that excess smoking and consumption of alcohol are the most common causes of these ulcers along with eating too much of spicy foods or foods that trigger off the stomach to produce too much of digestive juices.
