Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My lax les is 15 inches with inflamed gastric folds and severe antral gastritis. Presence of diverticulum and ulcer near the pyloric ring. I have constant nausea, bloating, and throat tightness.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Gastritis is an inflammation of stomach mucosa. It happens due to Helicobacter pylori a bacterial infection, smoking, alcohol and also certain medicines like Aspirin. Presence of diverticulum also causes gastritis.

Treatment plan

You are taking good medicines for your concern, continue them. You can add Panchsakar Churna (Ginger, Rock salt, Myrobalan, Fennel seeds) 0.11 oz twice a day with warm water after meals and Arogyavardhini Vati (Shuddha Parada, Shuddha Gandhak, Loha Bhasma) one tablet twice a day after meals.

Preventive measures

Avoid spicy and fried junk foods, quit smoking and drinking if you have these habits. There may be need of surgical removal of diverticulum.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
