Actually, the cause for the peptic ulcer is H. pylori bacteria. It can be treated by seeing a physician and getting antibiotics. Unless the underlying infection is taken care of the problems will persist.

Main cause of ulcer is H. Pylori bacteria which can be detected by endoscopy & biopsy If the same will found there is treatment of one month & If H. Pylori is not detected stress is the main reason to cause ulcer.

Cabbage,banana,lemon,and milk aggrevate ulcer.They are bad t ulcer patients.pear is little gud and also patient should take little different meals and varieties of fruits just little after another to test which will alleviate ones, as patients are allegic to different foods,one good to one patient may be bad for another.Stress is the major cause of ulcer
#18 - frances - 05/12/2015 - 00:56
thanks for the advice but seriously lime never worked for me so its a no no, meanwhile ulcer patients should eat more often cause i have come to realize that all what ulcer needs is real food, not spicy, fried or acidic food and banana is cool.
