NSAID's and Stomach Ulcers

The 2nd Biggest Cause of Ulcers

NSAID's are the 2nd biggest cause of ulcers. 100 million prescriptions are written in the United States for NSAID's, and a further 30 billion NSAID tablets are sold over-the-counter (without prescriptions) annually - that puts a lot of people at risk of developing peptic ulcers.

NSAID's are currently these are the world's most heavily, and most frequently prescribed drugs. The reason for this is that they are widely used for a number of common health conditions. For example, Aspirin is commonly used to prevent cardiovascular problems, while prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) NSAID's are frequently used for treatment of muscular pain, bone related discomfort such as arthritis pain, and inflammation.

1 in every 5 Americans is treated with NSAID's every year.

7 in every 10 people over the age of 65 use NSAID's weekly.

3 in every 10 people use NSAID's daily.

We also know that these nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs cause ulcers. The average risks for gastric ulcers are nearly 4% with less than 2 weeks use of NSAID's, and and 7% with more than 4 weeks use of these drugs.For duodenal ulcers the average risks were 3.0% with less than 2 weeks use and 4.0% with more than 4 weeks use.

NSAID's - the Side Effects and Deaths....

The problem with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is that people are unaware of the side effects and self-prescribe in ignorance, because these drugs are available without prescription. To give you an idea, 7% of men and 12% of women used prescription NSAID's, while 20% of men and 30% of women used non-prescription NSAID's.

The gastrointestinal consequences of long-term NSAID use are significant. A recent US study has shown that the NSAID-related gastrointestinal death rate is higher than the death rates of cervical cancer, malignant melanoma and asthma.

In the United States over 16,000 patients die each year due to NSAID-related gastrointestinal side-effects and a further 100,000 patients end up in hospital. That equates to nearly 50 NSAID-related deaths and 300 hospitalizations per day - this is a situation of epidemic proportion!!

How NSAID's Cause Ulcers

NSAID's interfere with the stomach's ability to protect itself from acidic digestive juices (gastric acid), and this is the primary cause of ulcers.

Normally the stomach has 3 main defenses against gastric acid;

  •   the mucus layer that coats the stomach lining and shields it from stomach acid
  •   the chemical bicarbonate that neutralizes stomach acid
  •   blood circulation to the stomach lining that aids in cell renewal and repair.

NSAID's disrupt all three of these defense mechanisms. And when your stomach's defenses are down, even normal levels of gastric acids will damage the unprotected stomach lining and cause ulcers.

The good news is that NSAID-induced ulcers usually start healing as soon as you stop taking your medication. To speed up the healing process and relieve symptoms your doctor will probably recommend taking antacids to neutralize the acid.

H2-blockers or proton-pump inhibitors can also decrease the amount of acid the stomach produces, but this is an unnatural process and you could find your self undernourished. And of course there are the side effects of these medications to consider as well.

If you have an NSAID ulcer and you have also tested positive for H. pylori, then it is highly recommended that this bacterium is treated. More drugs and more nasty side effects? No, not necessarily! H. pylori can be treated with the use of 100% natural remedies and because they are natural you won't suffer from negative effects either.

If you are taking these drugs and you think you have any symptoms of a peptic ulcer, please see your doctor a diagnosis. Delaying this can lead to complications. Surgery may be necessary if your ulcer recurs or fails to heal, or if your ulcer starts bleeding.

H. pylori, NSAID's and Stomach Ulcers

Both H. pylori and NSAID's cause ulcers, and there appears to be a relationship between the two. You can see from the following that treating H. pylori in people who are taking NSAID's is a good thing.

In a recent test, 300 patients who needed NSAID treatment were tested for H. pylori. 165 patients tested positive.

Of these 165 patients, 80 were treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs without treating H. pylori. Another 85 were treated for H. pylori with antibiotics (only 58% effective) before starting NSAID treatment.

Before treatment was started, none of the patients had any trace of stomach ulcers. After eight weeks, endoscopy was performed and it was found that 26 of the 85 patients (or 30%) who had not had successful H. pylori treatment, had an ulcer. Of the 49 patients with successful treatment of H. pylori, only 1 patient (or 2%) had an ulcer.

The results show that successful treatment of H. pylori should be recommended for those at highest risk (age related - older people are at higher risk) and also for anyone who has been being prescribed long-term NSAID treatment.

Need to treat your ulcers or H. pylori - and you have to take NSAID's?

Thankfully it is now possible to safely treat an H. pylori infection, while you continue to take your existing medication.

After years of research, a tried and tested natural solution has emerged into the global market, and this one has already been used by thousands of customers who have to take NSAID's at the same time.

This is a complete breakthrough in the treatment of H. pylori bacteria (the main cause of ulcers), and the main reason for this is that is is completely non-toxic and safe to take with any other medications.

Why take a chance on remedies or products with known problems or negative effects, or those which do not carry any guarantees?
