hi,thanks for query.Gastritis is a general term,means inflammation of the wall of G.I. tract.Duodenal ulcer means ulcer at due to this in duodenum.The medicines and care required are more or less same.You need to be careful in both the cases and along with drugs you need to plan your diet carefully.Ulcer should heal within about 6-8 weeks with treatment.
wishing you good health.

Doudenal ulacer is the ulcer, a raw area. Ulcer is severe when compared to gastritis. So continue medications. Ulcer cal lead to cancer

Duodenal ulcer is caused due to the gastritis itself. so gatritis has to be cured and in that way, the duodenal ulcer will also be getiing cured.
