Understanding Peptic Ulcers:

Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inner lining of the stomach, upper small intestine, or esophagus. They result from an imbalance between stomach acid, the protective mucosal barrier, and the digestive juices. Common causes include infection with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria, long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, and stress.


Peptic ulcers can manifest with a range of symptoms, including:

  • Burning abdominal pain, often occurring between meals or during the night.
  • Indigestion or heartburn.
  • Nausea or vomiting, sometimes with blood.
  • Dark, tarry stools or blood in vomit, indicating bleeding ulcers.
  • Unexplained weight loss or appetite changes.
