About proteins in the diet of people suffering from peptic ulcer disease

It is known that dietary proteins stimulate the process of scarring of ulcers and reduce the acidity of gastric juice. 


In people suffering from peptic ulcer disease, especially during the period of exacerbation of the disease, there is a violation of protein metabolism at the level of digestion, absorption and intermediate exchange of amino acids. These disorders are based on violations of the transition of food from the stomach to the underlying parts of the digestive tract, changes in the enzymatic activity of the juices of the stomach, intestines and pancreas, as well as changes in the liver and other digestive organs.

With anti-ulcer treatment, a sufficient amount of meat, milk and egg whites should be included in the diet. It is important to remember that the average daily rate in the diet of a person who is not engaged in physical labor is 1.5 g per 1 kg of body weight.
