The development of proper nutrition is done by dietitians. The diet is formed taking into account the individual characteristics of the organism of the sick person and the characteristics of the course of inflammation.

During the diagnostic procedures, the amount of acid in the gastric juice is determined. This indicator is essential in the preparation of a treatment plan and diet. Proper nutrition not only speeds up the restoration of the gastric lining, but also prevents its re-inflammation.

During the period of the most severe symptoms for the first 4-5 days, the patient is prescribed a strict diet. In the future, the diet expands. Eating with erosive gastritis requires the use of small portions of food every 2-3 hours. At one time you need to eat 200-250 g food.

Eat food should be at least 5 once a day. The last time you can eat no later than 2 hours before sleep. Otherwise, the food lump will not have time to be processed in the stomach and pushed into the intestines, which will lead to an aggravation of the situation.
