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.

Sir, I am suffering from duodenal ulcer due to which gastritis attacks me and I feel every time that my stomach is full. I went to the doctor and he prescribed me ganaton 50mg thrice a day and neksium tab twice a day. Please advised me the above dose is the correct dose. In my views, the dose is very high and it should be reduced. Please inform me whether I should take ganaton 50 mg and how much time and is it a good tablet because of itopride salt, because I am already suffering form many other diseases like BP, cardiac problem, arithrities etc.
