The mainstay of gastritis prevention is to avoid those things that irritate or inflame the stomach's lining.
If the patient's health care practitioner has prescribed a medication that they think is causing gastritis symptoms, talk to the doctor before you stop taking the medication. The medication may be very important for the patient's health.
