Peptic Ulcer Disease

Peptic ulcer

Peptic ulcer disease is associated with inflammation and ulceration of the stomach and duodenum. There is a strong link between inflammation and infection in the stomach and the Helicobacter pylori bacteria.

Treating the Helicobacter pylori bacteria usually allows the ulcer to heal and this is done using antibiotics and acid suppressing drugs known as proton pump inhibitors.
