Many experts are likely to assume stress as one of contributing factors – not a cause of the disease! With other factors (such as abusing alcohol and cigarette smoking) and H. Pylori infection, uncontrolled stress in long term might have contribution to trigger the forming of open sores in the lining of the stomach and duodenum.
So if stress does have an effect on your risk, it doesn’t work alone!
Can you prevent ulcers? The good news, the infection of H-Pylori can be cured. The infection is also preventable, the same goes for other risk factors of the disease such as the use of pain killers.
It’s also always worth a try to adopt healthy habits as much as possible to reduce the risk and promote your overall health. These include:
- Stop smoking, avoid also the secondhand smoke!
- Stop drinking alcohol (if possible), or drink only in moderation!
- It’s also recommended to stick with a good hygienic practice in order to protect yourself from the H-pylori infection.
If you are taking a pain killer, use it with caution. If you need more guidance, consult and discuss more with your doctor!
