Gastritis Causes


Gastritis usually develops when your stomach’s protective layer becomes wakened or damaged. A mucus-lined barrier protectes the wall of your stomach from the acids that help digest your foods. Weaknesses in the barrier allow your digestive juices to damage and inflame your stomach lining. A number of diseases and conditions can make your stomach’s protective layer vulnerable to damage and increase your risk of gastritis. Gastritis disease can also be caused by a blood disorder called pernicious anemia.

Here are several things can cause gastritis:
* Alcohol use
* Cigarette smoking
* Chronic vomiting
* Coffee and acidic beverages
* Too much stomach acid (such as from stress)
* Eating and drinking caustic or corrosive substances (such as poisons)
* Trauma or stress
* Systemic disease (for example Crohn’s disease)
* Regular use of pain relievers
* Older age
