Medical Marijuana Helps Treat Acute Gastritis

What is Acute Gastritis?

Acute Gastritis is a condition in which the stomach lining—known as the mucosa—is inflamed. The stomach lining contains special cells that produce acid and enzymes, which help break down food for digestion, and mucus, which protects the stomach lining from acid. When the stomach lining is inflamed, it produces less acid, enzymes, and mucus.

Gastritis may be acute or chronic. Sudden, severe inflammation of the stomach lining is called acute gastritis. Inflammation that lasts for a long time is called chronic gastritis. If chronic gastritis is not treated, it may last for years or even a lifetime.

Erosive gastritis is a type of gastritis that often does not cause significant inflammation but can wear away the stomach lining. Erosive gastritis can cause bleeding, erosions, or ulcers. Erosive gastritis may be acute or chronic.

The relationship between gastritis and symptoms is not clear. The term gastritis refers specifically to abnormal inflammation in the stomach lining. People who have gastritis may experience pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen, but many people with gastritis do not have any symptoms.

The term gastritis is sometimes mistakenly used to describe any symptoms of pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen. Many diseases and disorders can cause these symptoms. Most people who have upper abdominal symptoms do not have gastritis.

Medical Marijuana Helps Treat Acquired Hypothyroidism

What is acquired hypothyroidism?

Acquired hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland makes too little or no thyroid hormone. This occurs anytime during childhood and usually affects children starting at six months of age. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ that can be found in the front part of your neck. Thyroid hormones are special chemicals that help control how your body works. This includes keeping a normal body temperature, heart rate, and growth. The thyroid hormones also control how your body uses energy, and affects weight gain and loss. In children, thyroid hormones play an important role in normal growth and development.
What causes acquired hypothyroidism?

The following conditions may cause or increase your child’s risk of having acquired hypothyroidism:

  • Autoimmune disease: The immune system is your body’s defense against infections and diseases. A problem with the immune system may make the body attack even its own cells. Autoimmune thyroiditis (swelling of the thyroid gland) is the most common autoimmune disease that may cause acquired hypothyroidism.
  • Delayed onset of congenital hypothyroidism: Some children who have hypothyroidism when they are born, may only show signs and symptoms much later in childhood.
  • Diet: Having too little or no iodine in your child’s diet may cause hypothyroidism. Iodine is an important mineral used by the thyroid gland to work correctly and make thyroid hormones.
  • Family history: Having a family member with hypothyroidism or autoimmune disease may also increase your child’s risk.
  • Medicines: Taking certain medicines, such as those used to treat depression or other mental problems, may cause hypothyroidism. Medicines to treat hyperthyroidism (too much thyroid hormone) may also decrease the thyroid hormones in your child’s body.
  • Treatments: Radiation therapy used to treat cancers of the head and neck can destroy your child’s thyroid gland. Surgery to remove all or part of the thyroid gland makes him more likely to develop hypothyroidism.
  • Other diseases or conditions:Having thyroid problems, such as an enlarged or swollen thyroid. Nodules (lumps) caused by infections or cancer may grow in your child’s thyroid and affect how it works.
