Gastritis Diet

Improve Gastritis Symptoms with a Gastritis Diet

diet for gastritis means eating foods that are mildly flavored and easy to digest. Research does not show that there is one correct gastritis diet for every person with stomach problems. You should plan your meals to include only the foods that you tolerate the best (those which do not stimulate gastric acid).

GastritisIt is strongly encouraged that you log your food consumption. Keeping mental track of the foods you eat is futile. After several days, you will not remember which food you consumed.  Tracking your consumption will quickly allow you to identify foods that you should avoid.  Everyone is unique. Pizza may not sit well with you, while for others, it may have no adverse affect.

You may need to follow a gastritis diet (or similar) if you have ulcers, stomach pain, or too much acid in your stomach. Or you may need this type of diet if you have had stomach surgery (banding or reconstruction of digestive tract), major surgery, traumatic injury, burns, or severe infections.

Chronic causes of gastritis may stem from infection with bacteria, most likely Helicobacter pylori (H-pylori), chronic bile reflux, and stress.   Certain autoimmune disorders can cause gastritis too.


Side-effects of medications listed here:

If your body can tolerate the side-effects, gastritis can be treated with medicine. These include meds such as cimetidine, ranitidine, nizatidine, or famotidine, which help reduce the amount of acid the stomach produces.
