Health Insurance for Ulcer


There are three kinds of ulcers; esophageal ulcers, gastric ulcers, and duodenal ulcers.  Esophageal ulcers or even the other two kinds are often called peptic ulcers. Basically, ulcers are open sores that grow on the inside lining of the esophagus. The esophagus itself is a hollow tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. 

For years the myth that ulcers are caused by stress or spicy food has persisted. However research has now proven that ulcers are actually caused by increase in stomach acids due to bacteria such as H.Pylori or in some cases, medicines such as aspirin, ibuprofen naproxen, ketoprofen, bisphosphonates, and potassium supplements among others. Burning pain is the most common symptom of ulcers. Depending on where you have developed an ulcer, the pain may be felt anywhere from your stomach to your breastbone. Older adults are more prone to developing ulcers. Treatment for ulcers includes a course of antibiotics that will kill the bacteria causing the infection, antacids, drugs to minimize stomach acid production and those that protect the lining of the stomach and esophagus. 

Some other signs of ulcers include: 

  • Burning pain that worsens on an empty stomach 
  • Pain that flares up at night
  • Nausea or vomiting - severe versions of which may include blood that appears black 
  • Inexplicable weight loss and changes in appetite
