  1. most prominent cause for ulcers?
    H. pylori
  2. 4 defensive factors against ulcers
    • GI mucus
    • Bicarbonate= from epithelial cells of stomach
    • ¬† = neutralize acids
    • Blood flow
    • Prostiglandins= promote vasodilation, stimulate secretions of mucus and bicarb, suppress gastric acid secretion
  3. Diet therapy for ulcers
    • traditional ulcer bland diet not effective
