Peptic ulcer nutrition therapy

26 Mar

The diet for peptic ulcers should be well-balanced while eliminating foods that cause repeated distress. It’s advisable for peptic ulcer patients to always avoid foods that irritate the stomach.


The following recommendations may help provide some relief:

•Avoid alcohol, cigarette smoking, aspirin, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents.

•Avoid frequent meals and/or bedtime snacks to prevent increased acid secretion, unless you note you gain relief from certain foods.

•Foods and seasonings that stimulate gastric acid secretion such as caffeine, black pepper, garlic, cloves, and chili powder should be limited.

•Do not eat within two hours of bedtime.

•Omit any particular food that causes discomfort.

•Eat a well-balanced diet that includes a variety of foods.

•Milk (fresh, dried or evaporated), yoghurt and cheese can be taken but limit high-fat dairy.

•Most meat and poultry choices should be lean or very lean. Limit high fat and fried meat.

•Fresh, canned or frozen vegetables served in any form is recommended.

•Limit avocados.

•Go easy on high-fat breads and biscuits.

•Eat fewer foods that have added salt.

•Eat fewer foods that have added sugar.
