  • 1. Peptic ulcer causes and treatment with
    Generic Pepcid
  • 2. Peptic Ulcer
    A peptic ulcer is a sore in the inner lining of the stomach or upper small intestine (duodenum). When the intestine or stomach's protective layer is broken down, ulcers develop. The digestive juices contain hydrochloric acid and an enzyme called pepsin that can damage the intestine or stomach tissue. These can also injure the esophagus. There are various treatments that cure peptic ulcers the symptoms of which go away quickly. Gastric ulcers are one form of peptic ulcers that are formed in the stomach. Those that form in the upper small intestine are called duodenal ulcers.
  • 3. PepicUlcer
    Recent research findings now show that they are not only caused by gastric secretions but also by bacteria (Helicobacter pylori). The part of the gastrointestinal tract commonly affected by ulcer includes the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. The jejunum could be affected sometimes after surgical anastomosis (connection) to the stomach. It is commonly got healed and you can live a normal life but for that you need to start the treatment as soon as possible. It could form because of the worsening of gastroesophageal reflux disease symptoms.
  • 4. Causes ofPeptic Ulcer
    There are several factors that causes peptic ulcer. Some of the common causes are elaborated below• Heredity: It is known to run in families. Researchers have shown that some forms of peptic ulcer are common in people with certain blood groups. Duodenal ulcer has been linked to people with blood group O while gastric ulcer is commoner in people with blood group A. heredity is more of a predisposing factor and not a cause in itself.
  • 5. Causes ofPeptic Ulcer
    • Bile reflux: When there is incompetent pyloric sphincter, there can be reflux of bile and pancreatic juices into the stomach which in turn damage the gastric mucosa and predispose one to peptic ulcer.• Stress: When there is stress there is an increase in the stimulation of the vagus nerve. This in turn leads to increase production of gastric secretions which makes one susceptible to develop peptic ulcer in the long run
  • 6. Causes ofPeptic Ulcer
    • Inflammatory conditions: Inflammation of the lining of the stomach makes the membranes liable to digestion by gastric juices as a result of the reduction of the mucosa barrier.• Drugs: Certain drugs such as Steroids, alcohol (especially whiskey or spirit) and nicotine are also known to play a vital role in the development of the peptic ulcer.
    Though the most susceptible cause of peptic ulcer is the infection caused due to helicobacter pylori bacteria.
  • 7. Causes ofPeptic Ulcer
    Basically peptic ulcer occurred as a result of a long term disease such as gastroesophageal reflux disease. This is characterized as the reflux flow of stomach acid the throat causing irritation and inflammation also known as acid reflux. Symptoms of gerd if left untreated or ignored may result in peptic ulcer. Thus a medicine like generic pepcid is very helpful. It is chemically known as famotidine. It belongs to the histamine receptor antagonist group of drugs. Generic pepcid (famotidine) is use to reduce gastroesophageal reflux disease symptoms and also to treat acid reflux
  • 8. Causes ofPeptic Ulcer
    It is also useful in treating peptic ulcer. Famotidine in generic pepcid works by a very distinct mode of action. It is a histamine receptor antagonist that is H-2 blocker. Histamine is the chemical made by the body that causes the acid secretion in the stomach. Generic Pepcid (Famotidine Gelatin) blocks the action of histamine and helps to reduce the acid production resulting in relief from the symptoms of peptic ulcer and gastroesophageal reflux disease symptoms. Thus it helps to lower the risk of further complications cause due to peptic ulcer.
