ICD-10-CM Code

++

++

Preferred Practice Pattern

++
++

Key Features

++

Description

++

  • Inflammation of stomach lining

  • May be transient or chronic

  • Stomach or upper-abdominal pain

  • Dark stool

++

Essentials of Diagnosis

++

  • Heartburn that responds to antacids

  • Positive findings on biopsy or endoscopy and upper GI series

  • Chronic gastritis is an increased number of lymphocytes and plasma cells in the gastric mucosa

++

General Considerations

++

  • Diagnosis for more occult problems may take time and require intensive diagnostic testing

  • May cause stomach cancer

  • May indicate more serious problem, such as an autoimmune disease

  • May result in secondary problems indicating need for PT intervention: aerobic capacity and muscle endurance impairment, sarcopenia, weakness, musculoskeletal problems, neuromuscular problems, weight loss

++

Demographics

++

  • Can occur in anyone throughout lifespan

  • Approximately one-third of U.S. population is infected with H. pylori

  • Incidence increases with age

  • In U.S., overall age-related incidence is 20% in people younger than 30 years, 50% in people older than 60 years

  • Equally common in males and females

++

++

Functional Implications

++

  • Severe symptoms such as immediacy of need to urinate or defecate may cause inability to leave home
