HEALTH TIPS - How To Prevent Ulcer | Effective Ways Tips

An ulcer is defined as the erosion of the mucosa (top layer) lining the stomach and the duodenum (first part of the small intestine and is caused by an imbalance in the acid level in the stomach, the protective mechanism and the presence of Helicobacter pylori (a microorganism implicated as a major risk factor of developing ulcers).

Effective Ways To Prevent Ulcer

1.      Moderate Meal Intake

   From studies and experience, avoiding meals and poor eating habits have been shown to contribute greatly to the formation of ulcers. This may not be a direct cause, but it contributes to the number of ulcer cases seen in clinics today. The acidity of the secretions produced by the stomach has a pH of 2; that is enough to cause severe damage to the stomach. However, the stomach has its own protective mechanism. When this protective mechanism fails, then ulcer is bound to occur. Starvation allows more time for the acid to destroy the lining of the stomach

2.      Manage Daily Stress Level

Stress is another important risk factor for ulcers; therefore, reducing your stress level helps in guarding against ulcers. Also, because of the importance of stress, a subtype of ulcer is referred to as ‘stress induced ulcer’, which is the erosion of the mucosa of the stomach and intestines from stress.

3.      Stop Intake Of cigarette smoking and excessive alcohol

Cigarette smoking has also been implicated as a major risk factor in ulcer diseases. The certain mechanism is not fully clear, but it has been noted that people who smoke cigarettes excessively have a greater chance of developing ulcer related diseases than those who do not smoke. Excessive alcohol consumption also increases your risk of developing ulcers. If you must drink alcohol, it is advisable to be moderate.

4. Washing Of  hands and maintaining personal hygiene

It is contacted by faecal contamination of food, water or from hand-to-hand transmission. Hygienic practices like washing your fruits and vegetables properly before consumption, drinking potable water and washing your hands thoroughly after contact reduce the risk of Helicobacter pylori transmission, which in turn reduces the incidence of ulcers.
