What is the diet during the period of exacerbation of gastritis?

The stomach is difficult to work with inflamed walls, so when exacerbating gastritis on the first day, you must refrain from eating. It is recommended only to receive a warm liquid in the form of tea, mineral non-carbonated water, decoction of rose hips, about 2 liters per day. In the days that follow, the patient is allowed to take small amounts of steam and boiled products, without salt and spices. The basic principle of such nutrition - food should not irritate the mucous tissues of the stomach in any way, and therefore, be:

  • rubbed (without coarse pieces, which are difficult to digest);
  • not cold and not hot (only warm, about 35-40 ° C);
  • without aggressive for mucous substances (salt, pepper, acids, spices, etc.);
  • not fried (but only boiled or cooked in a double boiler);
  • not greasy;
  • without indigestible inclusions (chocolate, nuts, seeds, etc.).

In medicine, a diet with exacerbation of gastritis is designated as diet No. 5a, which is prescribed for gastritis, enteritis, colitis in the acute stage and during relapses.

Food is taken about 5 times a day, avoiding overeating and hunger. Strict diets usually stick to 1-2 weeks.

Reviews of the diet with exacerbation of gastritis

As a rule, the exacerbation of gastritis occurs suddenly, and at first the patient has no appetite at all. This can be used: the vast majority of specialists recommend the first and often second day of exacerbation to last without food, using only liquid. In doing this, we allow the inflamed stomach to rest a little and recover.

But, starvation by starvation, and without further changes in nutrition will not work. Therapeutic diet should be observed for 1-2 weeks, until the stomach is fully normalized. During this diet, starving is strictly not recommended, however, as well as overeat. It is necessary to make a convenient meal plan for yourself, to eat a little, but every 2-3 hours. It can be light snacks, tea with crackers, cottage cheese, etc.

Is it worth reminding that alcoholic beverages, nicotine and other bad habits are not compatible with the treatment of gastritis. Moreover, all food should be as fresh as possible, vegetables and fruits - thoroughly washed and cleaned.

Diet with exacerbation of gastritis should continue as long as possible: do not rush to go back to the previous diet, otherwise the symptoms can quickly return. Long-term diet often helps to forget about relapses for a long time and feel great under any circumstances.
