A peptic ulcer in the duodenum is a called a duodenal ulcer. It is a deformity in the covering of the stomach in the first layer of the small digestive system called the duodenum. The covering of the small entrails normally ensures itself from any mucosal versus corrosive uneven characters. On the off chance that this parity breaks down the tissue gets to be swollen and excited and causes ulcerative developments in the duodenum.
Gastrointestinal disturbances are very common nowadays mostly due to unsettling lifestyles and stress levels. Gastric and duodenal ulcers are anatomically different. The small intestine has three parts the duodenum, the ileum and jejunum, therefore the duodenum is part of the small intestine. The causes of both the diseases are almost the same.
Barium swallow: Upper GI series This is particularly done to examine the upper part of the digestive system, which may include the esophagus, the stomach and the duodenum. The chalky liquid barium is swallowed to coat the organs and an x-ray is obtained to examine them for ulcerative formations.
EGD or Esophagogastroduodenoscopy or upper endoscopy: A thin tube with light at the end of the tube is guided through all three organs resting in the upper abdomen, the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. They are viewed inside the body with the aid of the light and some sample tissue collected for biopsy.
Breath, blood and stomach tissue tests: These tests are conducted to specifically detect the presence of H. pylori in the organs. These sometimes trigger negative results in people who have recently consumed antibiotics. In any other case, these tests are most effective in detecting the bacteria.
