Definition of a Stomach Ulcer

Learn more about Ulcers, and how to avoid them...

A stomach ulcer is a general term that includes several other types of ulcers found in the digestive system. Over 810 million people have stomach ulcers right now, and some of them may not even be aware that a stomach ulcer could be the cause their abdominal aches and pains.

So what is a Stomach Ulcer?

There are many definitions out there with medical folk competing to see who can come up with the longest, most technical version. For example;

  •   "A raw or inflamed area of the stomach lining."
  •   "A Peptic ulcer is an ulcer of one of the areas of the gastrointestinal tract that is usually acidic."
  •   "A break in the stomach lining that allows acid and digestive juices to damage the tissues beneath the lining. It can cause vomiting, pain and bleeding."
  •   "A necrotic lesion characterized by a crater-like erosion of the stomach wall (gastric ulcer) or the duodenum (duodenal ulcer) often associated with painful symptoms."

Well, at least you get the idea. The simplest definition we can offer is this;

A stomach ulcer is a small hole or erosion in the lining of the esophagus, stomach or duodenum.

It is not much more that that! It sounds simple, but it really is a fairly serious condition that needs to be taken care of.

The most common type of ulcer found in patients in Western countries is the duodenal ulcer which is located in the small intestine, which is connected to the bottom part of the stomach.

Who gets ulcers?

Adults older than 40 years of age are most susceptible to gastric ulcers while nearly 1 in 10 of all adults in Western countries are affected by peptic ulcers. This figure is even higher in Third World countries.

Younger people are not immune - they are simply less likely to be affected. Apparently the percentage chance of you getting an ulcer is directly related to your age - so as a rule of thumb we can assume a 1 year old has a 1% chance, while an 80 year old has an 80% chance.

Are ulcers dangerous?

Most ulcers are not dangerous, but when left too long they can cause internal bleeding. Of course massive bleeding can be fatal.

Some good advice on avoiding ulcers...

See your doctor BEFORE you have any symptoms
"But why should I see a doctor if there is nothing wrong with me?" - you ask? Well, to be really safe, you should ask your doctor to check you out for an H. pylori infection as this is the cause of over 80% of all stomach ulcers.

In Western countries about 20% to 30% of people under the age of 40 have the bacteria, while it infects around 50% - 60% of people over age 60. See the relation to the rule of thumb pointed out above? Note that not all people infected with H. pylori will get an ulcer - some people's systems can tolerate the presence of H. pylori and may not be affected at all.

Painkillers and Anti-inflammatory drugs
Reduce your intake, or even better, stop taking painkillers that contain ibuprofen or aspirin for prolonged periods. Too many people take these for the tiniest of pains, not knowing they could be setting themselves up for the far worse pain that an ulcer is going to cause them!

Eat the correct foods
Although food does not cause ulcers, good nourishment is always a good idea. Statistics show that ulcers are more common amongst under nourished people. An easy to follow diet can help you become aware of the food sources that can cause an increase in acid levels.

Aim for a healthier lifestyle
Your stressful job will not cause an ulcer. Neither will an average intake of alcohol. Smoking in moderation is a bit more risky. Not one of these habits is going to really hurt you, but pushing any of these to excess (and/or a combination of these), you are setting the stage for stomach ulcers, especially if you are infected with H. pylori.
