Thanks for posting your query on HCM.
I can understand your concern.Peptic ulcer
develops due to imbalance between the defensive factors (mucus and bicarbonate) and aggressive factors (stomach acid).
The drug treatment of peptic ulcer includes the use of Proton pump
inhibitors which are to be taken one hour before breakfast once daily for a period of 4-6 weeks. These drugs not only suppress the acid production but also promote the healing of the ulcer.
If the peptic ulcer is caused by a bacteria helicobacter pylori
, then you must take two weeks course of antibiotics (Amoxycillin
) along with proton pump inhibitors.
You must avoid the following:
Alcohol, smoking, coffee, NSAID pain killers, stress, hot and spicy foods, etc
Hope this answers your query.
A feed back is appreciated.
