Part A & B -
Carmen's Daily Food Intake NO SMOKING!! Part C - Lifestyle & Diet Changes What causes it? Symptoms (NDDIC) Treatment Peptic ulcer disease is a sore or erosion in the lining of the stomach or the intestine. It is when the mucus layers wears away leaving the lining susceptible to damage by the acid in the stomach (Canada.com). There are two types: gastric and duodenal. Gastric ulcers are located in the stomach lining and duodenal ulcers are located in the duodenum of the small intestines (Canada.com). Risk Factors (UMM) seniors (age 60+)those who have had a previous ulcer
alcohol abuse
smoking burning pain in stomach
nausea/ vomiting
Diagnosis (UMM) physical exam (abdomen chest etc.)
blood test to check if anemia or H.pylori is present
endoscopy If severe:
dark stool (due to bleeding)
vomiting blood (that can look like "coffee-grounds")
weight loss If one has H. pylori, 3 medications will be prescribed: aspirin (relieves heartburn), H2 blockers (to reduce gastric acid secretions) and proton-pump inhibitors (decreases gastric acid production). If bleeding continues, a gastroenterologist will need to inject medication where the ulcer is through an endoscopy. Surgery will be needed if bleeding occurs once again (UMM). An ulcer is mainly caused by the bacteria H. pylori as well as the use of non-steroidal anti-flammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Both of these cause infections and damage the mucus layers. H. pylori is spread through to the stomach through consuming unclean water and food. Examples of NSAIDs include aspirin and ibuprofen. Note that peptic ulcers are NOT caused by stress or spicy foods (UMM). The graph I created shows positive as well as negative intakes of various food groups daily according to the Canada Food Guide.

A few positive things I am already doing relates to my intake of the Meat & Alternatives and Fruits & Vegetables food group. The graph shows that I am taking a sufficient amount of these food groups. I ensure that I incorporate a sufficient amount of meat especially in my lunch and dinner meals. For instance, for lunch, my sandwich may have approximately 2-3 servings of meat and for dinner, I will make sure I eat a more meat than I did at lunch. For fruits and vegetables, although I did not meet the total amount of servings for both days, I was either 1 or 1.5 servings away. In order to keep the correct number of servings, l ensure that I pack 2 servings of fruit to eat at school as a snack. During dinner is when I eat my required amount of vegetables and after dinner as a “dessert” is when I eat one more serving of fruit. Another positive point that I noted was that my intake of snacks/junk food is not too high. I try to limit myself from eating too many chips or candies. A few things I can improve on are to increase my intake of dairy and grain products. Currently, for dairy intake, I am only drinking one glass of milk in the and a 2 slices of cheeses during lunch. In order for my intake of dairy to be sufficient, I plan to drink another glass of milk during dinner. I camorningn also incorporate yogurt into my breakfast. This will ensure that I at least of 4 servings of dairy daily. In order to increase my serving of grain products, I plan to increase the amount of the “main course” of my lunch and dinner. For lunch, I can pack a whole sandwich as opposed to the half that I eat regularly. For dinner, instead of half a bowl of rice, I can eat a full bowl. This will ensure that I take in at least 6 servings of grain daily. Finally, as shown in the graph, my amount of fats and oils is very close to the maximum daily intake. In order to keep it below the maximum, I can ask my mom (the cook) to cook dinner with a limited amount of oil. As well, in my chart, the amount of fat for the chow mein and the beef was highest. This means that I should probably compare the nutrition facts of the chow mein bought at the supermarket of various brands to purchase the one that is smaller in fat quantities. For the beef, I can purchase meat that is not that fat (lean meat). NO ALCOHOL! FOOD CONSUMPTION Those who have peptic ulcer disease should not smoke because according to research and studies, smoking increases the recurrences of H. pylori. The lining of the stomach and duodenum is very sensitive and is easily affected. Also, smoking reduces the amount of sodium bicarbonate which neutralizes the stomach acid. This leads to the disability of the stomach acid to get neutralized and it will attack the linings of the stomach (NDDIC). One should eat more foods that contain flavonoids such as apples, celery, cranberries, onions, garlic and tea. This is because it prevents the growth of the bacteria, H. pylori. Eating antioxidant rich foods blueberries, cherries, squash and bell peppers are also helpful as they reduce the amount of unnecessary toxins and bacteria that enter the stomach. Alcohol increase acid secretion as well as damages the mucus layers of the stomach and intestine. Excessive amounts of alcohol are definitely not encouraged as it leads to peptic ulcers.
