  1. 3. Gastritis <ul><li>Gastritis is not a single disease, but several different conditions that all have inflammation of the stomach lining. </li></ul>
  2. 4. <ul><li>How the person gets this disease? </li></ul><ul><li>Gastritis can be caused by drinking too much alcohol, also with ibuprofen and aspirins.Sometimes gastritis develops after major surgery, traumatic injury, burns, or severe infections. Certain diseases, such as pernicious anemia, autoimmune disorders, and chronic bile reflux, can cause gastritis as well. </li></ul>
  3. 5. <ul><li>S igns and symptoms </li></ul><ul><li>The most common symptoms are abdominal upset or pain. Other symptoms are: </li></ul><ul><li>belching, </li></ul><ul><li>abdominal bloating, </li></ul><ul><li>nausea, and vomiting </li></ul><ul><li>or a feeling of fullness or of burning in the upper abdomen. </li></ul><ul><li>Blood in your vomit or black stools </li></ul><ul><li>  may be a sign of bleeding in the </li></ul><ul><li>stomach, which may indicate a serious </li></ul><ul><li>problem requiring immediate medical </li></ul><ul><li>attention. </li></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>Is there any cure or vaccine? </li></ul><ul><li>Treatment usually involves taking drugs to reduce stomach acid and thereby help relieve symptoms and promote healing. (Stomach acid </li></ul><ul><li>irritates the inflamed tissue in </li></ul><ul><li>the stomach.)  </li></ul><ul><li>How else can prevent getting this disease? </li></ul><ul><li>Avoidance of certain foods, beverages, or medicines may also be recommended. </li></ul><ul><li>What are the life expectancy of a person who gets this disease? </li></ul><ul><li>It is very rare that a person dies because of this diesease </li></ul>
  5. 7. <ul><li>How the doctor diagnosed the disease? </li></ul><ul><li>Gastritis is diagnosed through one or more medical tests: </li></ul><ul><li>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. The doctor will check for inflammation and may remove a tiny sample of tissue for tests. This procedure to remove a tissue sample is called a biopsy.  </li></ul><ul><li>Blood test. The doctor may check your red blood cell count to see whether you have anemia, which means that you do not have enough red blood cells. Anemia can be caused by bleeding from the stomach.   </li></ul>
  6. 8. <ul><li>What laboratory tests can be done to diagnose it? </li></ul><ul><li>Stool test. This test checks for the presence of blood in your stool, a sign of bleeding. Stool test may also be used to detect the presence of H. pylori in the digestive tract. </li></ul><ul><li>How long is the person sick?  </li></ul><ul><li>In most of the cases once you get this disease and you’ve finished taking the medicine the doctor gave you, you have to take care of yourself for your whole life by not eating acids and taking care of yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>Is there any treatment to relieve their symptoms. ?  Medicines and non-eating acids </li></ul><ul><li>Organizations support people that suffer the disease and their families </li></ul><ul><li>Gastritis support group </li></ul><ul><li>Acute gastritis- Women´s health support forum. </li></ul>
  7. 10. <ul><li>A salmonella infection is a foodborne illness caused by the salmonella bacteria carried by some animals, which can be transmitted from kitchen surfaces and can be in water, soil, animal feces, raw meats, and eggs. </li></ul>
  8. 11. <ul><li>How the person gets this disease? </li></ul><ul><li>Salmonella is transmitted by oral spread. You get salmonella by eating food or drinking beverages that have been contaminated with feces from infected people or animals. You can also get it if you contaminate your own hands cleaning up animal droppings or handling raw poultry and meat then eating with your hands or putting your hands in your mouth. The bacteria may be easily spread within the family unit and between small children. Once food has been contaminated, the bacteria can live on it and if the contaminated item is not refrigerated the bacteria will multiple increasing the risk of illness. Heat destroys the bacteria. </li></ul><ul><li>Salmonella is a very common bacteria. It is present on poultry, sometimes in beef and pork, and may be present in eggs and unpasteurized dairy products. The bacteria can be in a wide variety of animal droppings including mammals (dogs, cats, cows, sheep), reptiles (turtles, iguanas, snakes) and birds (chickens, turkeys and wild birds). Salmonella may be in untreated stream water. </li></ul><ul><li>Salmonella is NOT spread by coughing or sneezing. </li></ul>
  9. 12. <ul><li>What are the signs and symptoms? </li></ul><ul><li>Typical symptoms are diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, headache, loss of appetite, nausea and sometimes vomiting. Dehydration, especially in children and infants, may occur. Symptoms usually last 3-10 days. Some people and most animals may have no symptoms. </li></ul><ul><li>Is there any cure or vaccine ? </li></ul><ul><li>No specific treatment is indicated except bedrest and fluid replacement, unless illness occurs in infants, the elderly or debilitated or if the illness is severe or prolonged. The use of antibiotics may actually lengthen the time that you shed the bacteria in your stool . </li></ul>
  10. 13. <ul><li>How else can prevent getting this disease? </li></ul><ul><li>Cook poultry, meats and eggs thoroughly. </li></ul><ul><li>Take care when handling uncooked poultry or meat--don't lick your fingers or smoke a cigarette; wash the cutting board thoroughly before cutting anything else on it. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep poultry, meat, eggs and foods containing these raw items refrigerated. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't drink untreated water (stream, lake, etc.). </li></ul><ul><li>Don't drink raw milk, or eat unpasteurized diary products. </li></ul><ul><li>Wash your hands after changing diapers. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep children away from animal droppings. </li></ul><ul><li>Wash hands after handling pets or cleaning </li></ul><ul><li>pet cages </li></ul>
  11. 14. <ul><li>What are the life expectancy of a person who gets this disease? </li></ul><ul><li>10 years </li></ul>
  12. 15. <ul><li>How the doctor diagnosed the disease? </li></ul><ul><li>The first step of diagnosis of salmonella food poisoning, is a physical exam. A doctor can determine tenderness in the abdomen by applying pressure with the finger tips. Some patients also develop tiny pink spots on the skin called rose spots, which the doctor will examine. The next step in diagnosis, if required, is a stool culture test or a Febrile/cold agglutinins test. </li></ul>
  13. 16. <ul><li>What laboratory tests can be done to diagnose it? </li></ul><ul><li>biochemical tests like abdominal ultrasound. </li></ul><ul><li>How long is the person sick?  </li></ul><ul><li>The infection lasts from 5 to 7 days </li></ul><ul><li>Is there any treatment to relieve their symptoms. </li></ul><ul><li>Herbal treatment and </li></ul><ul><li>a soft diet </li></ul>
