What is Atrophic Gastritis?

Description of the disease

Atrophic gastritis is an inflammatory condition of the stomach lining, in which there is a gradual decrease in the number and functional activity of glandular cells. This leads to a disruption of the digestive process and the production of a protective mucous layer.


  • Chronic atrophic gastritis
  • Antral gastritis
  • Focus atrophic gastritis


  • Pain and heaviness in the epigastrium
  • Heartburn
  • Belching
  • Poor appetite
  • Nausea


The main causes of atrophic gastritis are Helicobacter pylori infection, autoimmune disorders, prolonged use of certain medications, improper diet, and stress.


Diagnosis of atrophic gastritis involves gastroscopy, analysis for Helicobacter pylori, and biopsy of the stomach lining.


Treatment includes taking medications to eradicate Helicobacter pylori, normalizing gastric acid secretion, and alleviating symptoms. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary.


Prevention of atrophic gastritis involves maintaining a proper diet, avoiding harmful habits, and seeking medical attention promptly when symptoms appear.


An gastroenterologist is responsible for treating atrophic gastritis.
