2. Duodenitis

Duodenitis is the medical term given for the inflammation of the duodenum. It is very similar to gastritis, which is the inflammation of the stomach lining. The symptoms, treatments, and causes of both duodenitis and gastritis are so similar that the two conditions can easily be confused with each other.

Duodenitis can affect people of all ages, and it can also occur in men and women. Both of these diseases can thankfully be cured, and it is unlikely that any long-term problems will remain. There is both a chronic version and an acute version of both gastritis and duodenitis.
