Dietitian Q/A

Because of the contents of some questions and the large number we receive, the MUSC Dietitians only answer selected questions. Although we discourage questions regarding personal health problems, scheduling an appointment with the outpatient dietitian to address these concerns is encouraged. Appointments can be made after a physician referral is received.

 Question:  i have a duodenum ulcer. would like a good diet


Unfortunately, no diet that will help ulcers heal faster; just ones to make you more comfortable while the ulcer heals. Generally, it is recommended to limit caffeine, alcohol and foods that cause you discomfort. Foods that tend to cause discomfort may be spicy, fatty or acidic. However, not everyone is bothered by these foods. Another way to deal with the discomfort of an ulcer are to eat small, frequent meals.

Since nearly all of duodenal ulcers are caused by bacteria called helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), pain reliever use, and certain medications it is strongly recommended you see your physician, if you have or believe you have an ulcer.
