Is it possible to cure gastritis?
Hello, I have been recently diagnosed with gastritis. I have a sharp pain under my rib cage, center, above my belly button, and was throwing up every time I stood up or walked. My doctor asked me to eat bland food and I should be alright in a few weeks. Can Gastritis be cured? I am only drinking water and eating bland foods like Pasta, and spaghetti now. Is it possible to cure gastritis?
@guendolin Hello, Yes it is possible to cure gastritis. Gastritis can be cured if you eat a bland diet, and reduce stress. However, your stomach will always remain sensitive and bouts can come back. The best way to find out is to try the food to see if you get any reactions. If you don't have any problems, then your stomach is not irritated by it. If you do get symptoms, avoid that food. Everyone has their own trigger foods. What upsets your stomach may be fine for someone else. The dietary guidelines for gastritis are very general and don't always fit everyone's experience.
