10. No- symptoms
Although it may sound contradictory, people with gastritis in some cases don’t feel any symptom until the disease is advanced or severe. This is one of the main reasons why H. pylori infection spreads easily, as many people don’t know they are infected.
Due to the wide variety of symptoms that a person with gastritis can experience, it is always important to visit a gastroenterologist to obtain the best treatment for the disease and to avoid complications. Likewise, it is very important to treat H. pylori infection to avoid developing gastric ulcers, ulcer perforation and stomach cancer, and to avoid spreading of this infection to other people.
