Gastritis is a condition caused due to erosion or inflammation of stomach lining named mucosa. The stomach lining gets irritated due to excess gastric acid production by gastric glands. Gastritis now a days has become one of the common digestive disorders due to factors like unhealthy diet, stress, smoking, alcoholism, infections, food allergies and others. Gastritis can affect individuals suddenly or may develop gradually over time. Sudden onset of gastritis is called as acute gastritis and gradual onset is referred to as chronic gastritis. Gastritis is not serious in many cases it clears up quickly without any treatment, whereas in few cases severe gastritis can lead to ulcers and can also raise the risk of stomach cancer.
Gastritis is classified into two types namely erosive gastritis and non-erosive gastritis. Erosive gastritis is a type which causes stomach lining erosion i.e. the stomach lining to wear away. This is the severe type among the two. It causes ulcers (deep sores in the lining of the stomach). Non-erosive gastritis is a type which leads to inflammation in the stomach lining.
