What can and can not be drunk with gastritis with high acidity

Most patients are helped by alkaline - chloride-sulphate-hydrocarbonate or hydrocarbonate-sodium mineral water in gastritis with high acidity, such as: Naftusya, Polyana Kvasova, Svalyava, Essentuki, Borjomi. Only before drinking it is necessary to pour water in a glass beforehand so that carbon dioxide leaves.

You can drink green tea, weakly boiled black tea, natural sweet fruit juices (after diluting them with water 1: 1), compote of dried fruits, kissel.

But here yogurt (and all sour milk drinks), natural black coffee, cocoa, carbonated water and broth of rose hips increases the acidity of the stomach and can enhance the symptoms of hyperacid gastritis.

As for milk, which gastroenterologists traditionally recommend to drink at night with a hyperacid gastritis, its fat content should be at least 2.5%, and before consumption it should be slightly heated. At the same time, many foreign experts believe that calcium, casein and whey milk proteins can stimulate the release of additional hydrochloric acid in the stomach and thereby strengthen the symptoms of gastritis. In addition, fresh milk has a weakly acid reaction (pH 6.68), so patients with gastritis should decide on the use of milk, based on an individual reaction to this product.

It is important to remember that immediately after a meal it is not recommended to drink anything, use of liquid should be postponed for at least an hour after eating.

It is completely unacceptable for any alcohol with gastritis with high acidity (vodka, champagne, white and red wine, beer). Also remember that very harmful to the gastric mucosa is smoking with gastritis with high acidity.


Contraindications to such starvation - concomitant diseases of the cardiovascular and endocrine system, infectious and viral diseases (tuberculosis, hepatitis), oncology, severe anemia, VSD, children and the elderly.

According to gastroenterologists, while observing the principles of therapeutic nutrition for patients with gastrointestinal diseases, including acid-dependent, complications are not observed, and the risks associated with the diet are absent.

How to lose weight with gastritis with high acidity?

But one-two-day fasting with gastritis with high acidity is allowed in the case of the appearance of the first symptoms or exacerbation of chronic hyperacid inflammation of the stomach. And, of course, this starvation is not intended to reduce weight.

Patients are advised to drink at least 2.5 liters of water during the day; it can be alkaline mineral water without gas. On the third day, food intake is limited to slimy soup on water, rubbed with porridge and jelly from sweet berries. So it should be eaten for two more days, after which small portions are returned to boiled meat and fish, cottage cheese, eggs and vegetables.
