Gastritis is inflammation of the protective lining of the stomach. Acute gastritis involves sudden, severe inflammation, while chronic gastritis involves long-term inflammation that can last for years if it’s left untreated. So the next question is what causes gastritis?

Weakness in your stomach lining allows digestive juices to damage and inflame it, causing gastritis. Having a thin or damaged stomach lining raises your risk for gastritis. Also, certain conditions and activities increase your risk for developing gastritis.

A gastrointestinal bacterial infection can cause gastritis. The most common is infection with Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that infects the lining of the stomach. It’s usually passed from person-to-person, but it can also be transmitted through contaminated food or water.
