About Peptic Ulcer (Ulcer)

Peptic Ulcer or commonly called Ulcer is a well defined round or oval ulcer (sore) formation in stomach or duodenum due to stomach acids and digestive juices which damage the protective lining of stomach or duodenum and lead to unproductive inner surface, further causing the formation of ulcer. In countries like India, large numbers of people suffer from various ulcer related problems due to our eating habits. Mostly, Indian eats food rich in fats, spices and sometimes prepared in unhygienic conditions. Moreover, present life style also plays a major role increasing the chances of ulcer to people like working late night, irregular eating habits, eating junk food etc.

Main forms of ulcers are –

1) Duodenal Ulcer (most common in Indian conditions)
2) Gastric Ulcer (less common)
3) Oesophageal Ulcers (common, caused by back flow of acid in to Oesophageal)
4) Stress Ulcers (resulting due to stress caused by illness, burns, trauma etc)
5) NSAID induced Ulcers (due to excessive use of pain killers)
6) Ulcers associated with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome


Doctors mostly rate three main causes for this problem and they are-

1) Imbalance of aggressive and defensive factors e.g. gastric acid and enzymes try to damage stomach wall while mucus, bicarbonate ions, integrity and repair capacity of mucosal cells, prostaglandins and gastric blood supply tries to protect from ulcers.
2) H.pylori (Helicobacter pylori) is considered one of main factor in causing ulcer in patients and mostly, enters patient’s body through unhygienic food and water.
3) Third is present life style which is full of many stress causing factors and consumption of junk food, alcohol and smoking.



From above, we can easily judge the role of good life style in decreasing the chances of ulcer in life. It is very much possible for people having minor ulcer problems to treat it with diet moderation. However, in acute ulcer conditions people are required to take proper medications and they may need surgery in certain cases. In market, people can easily find many drugs for treating ulcer problems; however, best option available with people is to go for better life lifestyles which include healthy living and eating habits.

Benefit of Adding Fastag to the Vehicle (Paytm Fastag)

  Today, India is progressing in every field and we are seeing many new improvements coming to our lives. One such improvement is mandatory to use of fastag on all vehicles in India. With this change, we can see the saving of time of commuters and saving of valuable fuel. As per the Indian transport minister, with the use of fastag on vehicles, we can hope to see a saving of Rs 20,000 crore. I hope that it will improve the management of vehicles on the various toll plazas. I have many bad experiences on various toll plazas due to manual operation and high rush.  Already, toll collectors and people are finding this scheme of fastag very helpful. I have already installed fastag on my both vehicles two years back. So far, Paytm fastag is the most used fastag in India because it is linked to the Paytm wallet which makes it easy to add cash and make payments. I am also using Paytm Fastag on one of my main vehicles and my experience is very smooth with it. It is very easy to buy Paytm Fasta

In him, people are seeing a new Buddha. This incident has happened in the Bara district of Nepal. Thousands of pilgrims have started visiting this place.

Deadly second wave of coronavirus in India (No lessons Learnt from First Wave)

  Corona Virus is back in India and this time it is much bigger and dangerous than the earlier one. In the post, Is India ready for Coronavirus? I discussed things that give an idea about the preparedness of India and the Indian healthcare system to control the coronavirus. The first wave of coronavirus has already given many bad shocks for Indians and shown to us that how our health care system is overstretched and not up to the mark. Now the second wave of coronavirus is giving trouble to India. Already talked about it in the Last Post on Surge in Coronavirus cases in India .  The second wave of coronavirus is much bigger than the first wave and it is hitting harder the Indians and Indian healthcare system. If we look at the present situation then it looks that we have learned no lessons from the first wave of the coronavirus and never anticipated a stronger second wave of the coronavirus. If we go by national news then our hospitals have no beds and oxygen. Similar situation, we ca
