Meaning of Gastritis

Gastritis in Spanish is Gastritis
Gastritis es la inflamación de la mucosa gástrica, que en la gastroscopía se ve enrojecida, presentándose en forma de manchas rojizas, las cuales representan irritación o hemorragias subepiteliales.1 Sin embargo, el diagnóstico preciso se obtiene por exploración endoscópica. En ésta se apreciará si es solo una parte del estómago la que está afectada o toda la esfera gástrica. Son varias sus causas, entre ellas, los malos hábitos alimenticios, el estrés, el abuso en el consumo de analgésicos (aspirina, piroxicam, indometacina, ketoprofeno, etc.), desórdenes de autoinmunidad o la infección por Helicobacter pylori.2 3 - See link
