User :   gastric problem with acute vomiting..

Doctor :   is there any particular food that she took ?
Doctor :   was there any change in her lifestyle?
Doctor :   An example of acute gastritis is stomach upset that may follow the use of alcohol or aspirin
Doctor :   Helicobacter pylori is a type of bacteria that infects the stomach. Infection with this bacteria may lead to chronic gastritis.

Doctor :   is she having stomach pain?
User :   yes
Doctor :   is she having constipation or diarrhoea?
Doctor :   where is the pain?
Doctor :   i mean upper part or lower part of abdomen?
Doctor :   The most common symptoms are abdominal upset or pain.
Doctor :   Other symptoms are:
* belching,
* abdominal bloating,
* nausea, and vomiting
* or a feeling of fullness or of burning in the upper abdomen.

Doctor :   Gastritis is diagnosed through one or more medical tests: Doctor :   Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. The doctor eases an endoscope, a thin tube containing a tiny camera, through your mouth (or occasionally nose) and down into your stomach to look at the stomach lining
Doctor :   Blood test. The doctor may check her red blood cell count to see whether she has anemia, which means that you do not have enough red blood cells
Doctor :   Treatment usually involves taking drugs to reduce stomach acid and thereby help relieve symptoms and promote healing.
Doctor :   Avoidance of certain foods, beverages, or medicines may also be recommended.
User :   blood test: less haemoglobin
Doctor :   ok so anemia
Doctor :   it can be caused by vitamin b12 deficiency
Doctor :   If your gastritis is caused by an infection, that problem may be treated as well
Doctor :   For example, the doctor might prescribe antibiotics to clear up H. pylori infection.
