How to Get Rid of Peptic / Dueodenal UlcerTweet
The mucous lining of the stomach and duodenum, the upper region of small intestine, is involved in this disorder. The lining protects the wall of the digestive tract against erosion caused by the gastric secretion, which is composed of "pepsin" and "hydrochloric acid" meant for catalytic function of the food particles. From the protein-splitting enzyme, the body absorbs the pepsin part of it but the other hydrochloric acid is not, which in turn is a powerful corrosive agent itself. Excessive secretion of HCL can damage the mucous lining of the digestive tract resulting in sore. The peptic ulcer is painful for the afflicted person, an in some cases the pain is accompanied by nausea or vomiting, further more bleeding can also occur in extreme cases.
