  • 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


  • 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

Signs and Symptoms

  • Heartburn
  • Hiccups
  • Pain in abdomen or stomach

  • Nausea
