Symptoms of gastritis include loss of appetite, hiccups and darkened stools

Symptoms of gastritis include loss of appetite, hiccups and darkened stools

Gastritis is an inflammation, irritation or erosion of the lining of the stomach. It can occur punctually (acute) or repeatedly (chronic). To help in the digestion of food and help kill external agents such as germs and bacteria, the stomach produces gastric juice, which is an acid. This acid is corrosive so the stomach cells produce a natural barrier to protect the stomach mucosa and the superficial layer of the small intestine, the duodenum.
