Peptic Ulcer Disease and Non Ulcer Dyspepsia Diet
A diet that avoids stomach irritants is for those patients who suffer from symptoms of peptic ulcer disease or non-ulcer dyspepsia. In peptic ulcer disease, the patient has one or more ulcers in the stomach or duodenum (the first part of the intestine beyond the stomach). Non-ulcer dyspepsia refers to these same symptoms but without the presence of an ulcer. These symptoms, which include discomfort or burning in the upper abdomen, often occur an hour or so after eating and may be relieved by milk, food, or antacids. In the past, diet was considered very important in treating ulcers. Now physicians know that foods do not actually cause an ulcer. There are a few foods, however, that can aggravate ulcer symptoms or delay healing.
Depending on individual food selection, this diet meets the National Research Council’s Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA).
