Why chronic gastritis is not always cured

Blind treatment of unclear etiology

There are many causes of chronic gastritis, such as Helicobacter pylori infection, chronic diseases of other organs in the body, adverse stimulation, insufficient nutritional supply, reflux gastritis, etc. If the exact cause is not identified, there will be a lack of targeted treatment, and better treatment effects will not be received.

Not paying attention to eliminating the cause

After treatment, some patients relax their vigilance in life, and still have bad habits, such as hunger and satiety, smoking and drinking, eating spicy food, etc., gastritis will inevitably recur again, and even gradually aggravate.

Not paying attention to continuous treatment

In some patients, the symptoms of gastritis are not obvious, and the symptoms are relieved after taking the medicine. In fact, the root cause of the patient’s disease has not been eradicated, and it will recur. If chronic gastritis is not treated in a timely and effective manner, it may recur repeatedly, which may lead to the occurrence of some complications and increase the difficulty of treatment.
