Ulcer Awareness

Ulcers can be quite uncomfortable, but with proper management, you can find relief and promote healing. Here’s a breakdown of what to do and what to avoid to keep your ulcer in check:


  • Eat a bland diet: Focus on easily digestible foods like fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. These foods put less stress on your stomach lining.
  • Manage stress: Chronic stress can worsen ulcers. Practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation, or yoga.
  • Maintain a healthy weight: Obesity can contribute to ulcers. Aim for a healthy weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise.
  • Take medications as prescribed: Your doctor might prescribe medications like antacids, proton pump inhibitors, or antibiotics depending on the cause of your ulcer.
  • Quit smoking: Smoking weakens the stomach lining and slows ulcer healing. Talk to your doctor about smoking cessation resources.
  • Limit alcohol: Alcohol irritates the stomach lining and can delay ulcer healing.
  • Protect your stomach: Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothing that puts pressure on your abdomen.


  • Eat spicy foods: Spicy foods can irritate your stomach lining and worsen ulcer pain.
  • Drink too much caffeine: Caffeine can increase stomach acid production and aggravate ulcers.
  • Consume acidic foods: Citrus fruits, tomatoes, and tomato-based products might irritate your stomach. Pay attention to how your body reacts to specific foods.
  • Take certain medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen can irritate the stomach lining. Consult your doctor for alternative pain management options.
  • Drink excessive alcohol: Alcohol damages the stomach lining and hinders healing.
  • Smoke: Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of ulcer complications.
  • Ignore persistent symptoms: If your ulcer symptoms persist despite lifestyle changes or medication, consult your doctor to rule out any underlying issues.

Consult your doctor for personalized recommendations on managing your ulcer effectively.
