How You Should Deal With The Peptic Ulcer Disease

Mar 20, 2008
Do you know what PUD is? Do you know what causes PUD? PUD is the acronym for Peptic Ulcer Disease and it strikes billions of people around the world. It is estimated that over one million Americans suffer from PUD each day. It is unknown how many more people do not realize what condition they have and believe it to be heartburn, when it is in fact an ulcer.

Most people never know they have an ulcer until something bad happens. They associate the symptoms with indigestion or, as mentioned before, heartburn. But you can help yourself by learning what some of the symptoms are so that you will know to get treatment for your ulcer as soon as possible.

There are some noticeable symptoms of ulcers. The first is abdominal pain. This is the clue that something is wrong with the body, but unfortunately many people attribute it to something else. Other symptoms include: nausea, vomiting, weight loss, abdominal bloating and vomiting of blood.

Many people go untreated for ulcers each year because the symptoms often mirror other illness or diseases. This is not something that will go away without treatment and there can be severe complications if left untreated. It is important to note the symptoms and then talk them over with your primary care physician as soon as possible.

There are treatments for Peptic Ulcer Disease but you first have to go to a doctor to have a thorough evaluation performed. Many of the treatments are dependent upon two things. The first factor is age. Many ulcers in young people can be treated with an over the counter antacid.

If you are older, then the doctor may need to prescribe stronger medication to reduce the amount of acid in your stomach. The second factor is whether or not it is an H pylori ulcer which is not uncommon even though it may also be a stomach ulcer or a duodenal ulcer. That requires antibiotics to help clear it up.

You can help your treatment for Peptic Ulcer Disease by watching what you eat, minimizing stress and by stopping any tobacco use. Your goal is to live healthier and along with medications designed to treat gastric ulcers, you can begin living again.

Do not let your ulcers hold you down from living a good life. Always follow the doctor's advice if you want to get rid of those pesky, internal sores that are causing you so much pain and misery.
