Frequent abdominal pain, a feeling of heaviness and belching after eating, and nausea are typical signs of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. One of the causes of feeling sick may be detected a bacterial infection “Helicobacter pylori.” It affects the stomach and duodenum and provokes the progression of gastritis, ulcers and other dangerous diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
The Helicobacter pylori bacterium is not able to progress in the open air. It is transferred through non-sexual contact: through utensils, personal hygiene facilities, and as well by a kiss. This microbe is resistant to an acidic environment, so it easily penetrates into the mucous membranes of the stomach and destroys its tissues. The tunica mucosa is inflamed, erosions and gastritis expand, and then ulcers are occurring. If the infection is not cured timely, there is a danger to get stomach cancer.
After 6-8 days after infection, the person begins to note signs of inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract: pain, nausea, vomiting, belching. Pain sensations often occur in fasting state and decrease after eating. It also forces the patient not to take things seriously. Meanwhile, bacteria are left in the body and at any time can begin its destructive work. Although they may not show its presence for years. The risk of invasion of their pathogenic activity is increased by the failure of nutrition, smoking, alcohol abuse, stress, weakness of general immunity, and infectious diseases.
