Acute gastritis is one of the most common and most overlooked health conditions in the world. Every year, acute gastritis affects at least 56000 people around the globe. Gastritis is a condition where the stomach’s mucosal lining undergoes inflammatory change.
Acute gastritis is usually an incident of inflammation that prompts the white blood cells to act on the stomach lining. It can be caused by an infection or an unhealthy lifestyle. The symptoms of acute gastritis occur suddenly unlike chronic gastritis which develops over time. It is reactive and tends to be more erosive than chronic gastritis is.
