Avoid doing these 4 things if you are facing gastric pain!

Gastric in a glance..

Gastric is a layman’s term used to describe the pain that normally occurs in the stomach. It can further be divided into two types which are gastritis (inflammation of the lining of the stomach) and also peptic ulcer (which includes the inner lining of the stomach). Peptic ulcer is a more serious case compared to gastritis. Gastritis strikes most people. A study from Malaysia has shown there are around 62% of the Malaysian population has been reported to have gastritis.

Naturally, our stomach will produce an acid called Hydrochloric acid with a pH value of around 1 to 2. It is very acidic and can cause erosion if it was tested on our finger! Our stomach was designed with a lining called mucosa to further protect it from the corrosive impact of hydrochloric acid

The hydrochloric acid secretion begins once there is food to be digested. So, gastritis happens when there is an imbalance in the production (overproduction) of hydrochloric acid and the weak mucosal lining in the stomach

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Gastric?



Loss of appetite


Nausea & vomitting


Unintentional weight loss

What to avoid when facing gastric pain?

Avoid smoking

Smoking can reduce the defensiveness of the gastric lining in your stomach. Stop smoking to alleviate the pain.

Avoid alcohol consumption

Alcohol is able to irritate the gastric lining of your stomach. Try to avoid alcohol as it can lead to other morbidities.

Eat small but Frequently

Try to take your meal regularly. Suggested to take your meal every 2-3 hour. Stop eating 2 hours prior to sleeping time. Avoid laying on your back right after eating. In the month of Ramadhan, try not to skip sahur.

Take your medication

Medications such as antacid, proton-pump inhibitors, acid blockers will reduce your symptoms.

In medicine, there is no specific cure for gastric pain. Research has shown that nutrition and gastric diets do not play a role in most of the causes of gastritis.

Yet, it does not mean what you eat or drink has no effect on your body or gastritis. Below are some suggestions of nutritional considerations for people with gastritis:

High Fibre Diets

Studies from Havard school of Public health have shown that high fiber diets were associated with a 45% of reduced risk of getting gastritis and peptic ulcer. Examples of soluble fiber foods are wheat, oats, legume, fruits, and vegetables.

Vitamin A Intake

Studies from Havard have shown that respondents with a total intake of vitamin A from diets or supplements have a lower risk of having gastritis.

Vitamin E Intake

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin. It acts as a good anti-oxidant that protects the cells from free radicals. Research has shown that Vitamin E able to improve gastric lesions and improve the healing of gastric ulcers in animal studies

Prebiotic & Probiotic Intake

Prebiotic and probiotic has shown to be effective in the treatment of gastritis as they can increase the good bacteria in our gut.

A Malaysian Adult Nutrition Survey (MANS) 2003 found out that more than half of Malaysian adults consumed less dietary fiber than the recommended intake. For the latest Malaysian Adult Nutrition Survey (MANS) 2014 stated that almost half of the Malaysian adults took their food outside the home because of the time constraints and limited time to prepare food at home.

It can be said that it is quite hard to consume all the nutrients needed in a busy lifestyle right now. Especially for those who are suffering from gastric pain.
