GASTRITIS CAUSES, DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT (PEPTIC ULCER, ACID PEPTIC DISEASE, GAS PROBLEMS) Home ( Gastritis Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment (Peptic Ulcer, Acid Peptic Disease, Gas Problems) Hydrochloric acid, or more commonly known as HCL, is a strong acid with pH of 1.5-3.5 secreted in the stomach. It is produced by the gastric cells to help digest the food we eat. Due to strong acidic pH, HCL can damage the lining of your stomach – that is prevented by a thick layer of mucous membrane that covers the internal stomach wall. However, there are some diseases and stomach conditions that causes the depletion of this protective layer. One of the common and troublesome conditions is the stomach ulcers (that develop inside the stomach), and duodenal ulcers (that develop inside the duodenum (small intestine). Stomach and peptic ulcers are common in Asians – particularly in those who work in the gulf countries. What are common symptoms people have if they have gas problems?
