Gastritis is a condition characterized by an inflammation of the lining of the stomach. Read and know all about the various causes of this disorder.
What causes Gastritis?
Weakening or damaging of the protective layer of the stomach is one of the main causes of Gastritis. A mucus-lined barricade guards the wall of the stomach from the acid (or digestive juice) which is used to assimilate the food. When the barricade becomes thin or weak due to any reason, the digestive juices harm and inflame the lining of the stomach.
