Ulcers: too muck stomach acidity Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON Dear Ur. Larnl) Could you tell me Uic symptoms ot a stomach ulcer? Also what could cause one? Can it he ta- ken care of at home with a re- stricted diet? Also what would this diet include or not include? Dear Header PepUc ulcer is a fairly involved subject. Most people, wiicn they say stomach ulcer, really mean peptic ulcers and the most common location for tlwm is juM. outside the stomach in the duodenal region which is real- ly the first part of the small intestine. The ulcer itself is an erosion of the. lining of the di- gestive tract which penetrates to the muscular layer. There are a lot of theories on what causes ulcers but the one necessary element is the acid digestive juice form- ed by the stomach. In general, people who form large amounts of stomach acid are the ones most likely to develop peptic ulcers. This acid diges- tive juice can dissolve any oE the body tissues but the atom- afh is covered by a mucus ma- terial which helps protect itself from the acid digestive juice. The acid stomach contents arc neutralized by digestive juices formed by the small in- testine. When there is too much acid, it's not always possible to neutralize it and where it squirts against the duodenal wall during emptying is a com- mon location for the ulcer. Bridge results LBtffes Wed.

What causes a person to se- crete more acid digestive juice ihan others? One factor, cer- tainly, is psycliic stress. Anotli- er is whut we eat and drink. .-liich includes coffee. Tlie caf- feine in coffee stimulates acid pepsin juice formation. So doss alcohol. Tne higher incidence ot ulcers in cigarette smokers is probably related to its effect in preventing the duodenum [rom producing enough alkaline juices to neutralize the acici stomach contents when they first enter the small intestine. The primary symptom of the peptic ulcer is pain in the upper sbdomen, most commonly be- low the breastbone between the ribs and the upper abdomen. The pain can, however, be dis- placed a bit to other regions in the upper .abdomen. The pain is often described as a burning, gnawing sensation and charac- teristically it is relieved by eat- ing, particularly if one eats or drinks alkaline foods such as milk. The basic element of treat- is lo neutralize the acid digestive juice. This is done by taking alkalizers, many of which you can buy in the su- permarket or a drug store with- out a prescription. Certain drugs help to block the nerve pathway that stimulates Hie stomach to produce acid diges- live juices and can also ve very helpful. It is often necessary to change (he diet to one that is more bland in nattire and to provide sufficiently frequent feedings to neutralize any acid digestive juices formed. Many people can treat an ul- cer at hc-me. But there is real danger hi this because the in- dividual may be treating the wrong thing. The best approach is to go to a doctor and find out whether or net an ulcer is present and to follow the regi- men which he prescribes for you.
