Peptic ulcer ratio jumped up 3 times much as before 311 in Miyagi

Lecturer. Iijima and Dr. Kanno from Tohoku university hospital found out the ratio of peptic ulcer jumped up 3 times much as before 311. Peptic ulcer includes gastric ulcer and Duodenal ulcer.
They assert it is because of psychogenic stress.
The researching team collected information about peptic ulcer cases from 7 major hospitals for 3 months following 311 in Miyagi prefecture.
As a result, peptic ulcer cases were 383, which was 261 in 2010. (↑150%)
Among these cases, peptic ulcer which were diagnosed exclusively from psychogenic stress were 55, which was 20 in 2010.
Patients who had Helicobacter pylori infection or used to take medicine also started having peptic ulcer after 311.
The largest group is over 65 years old. The largest increase was observed in the hospitals in coastal area, which were damaged by Tsunami. The first 10 days after 311 had the most significant increase in the ratio.






قَفز معدّل القرحة الهضمية إلى 3 مرّات أكثر عن قبل 311 في مياجي
وجد المحاضِر ليجيما و الدكتور كانّو من مستشفى جامعة توهوكو، إن معدل القرحة الهضمية قد قفز ثلاث مرات اكثر عن قبل 311. تضمن التقرّح الهضمي، قرحة في المعدة و قرحة فس الاثني عشر. لقد اكّد المحاضِر و الدكتور إن أسباب هذه القرحة تعود لاسباب تتعلق بالاجهاد النفسي.
لقد جمع فريق العمل معلوماتٍ عن هذا التقرح من سبعة مستشفيات كبرى بعد ثلاثة أشهر من كارثة 311 في محافظة مياجي.
بالنتيجة، كانت حالات القرحة الهضمية المستكشفة 383 حالة، و التي كانت 261 في عام 2010. (زيادة 50%)
من بين هذه الحالات، حالات التقرح الهضمي التي شُخصت حصرياً لاسباب تتعلق بالاجهاد النفسي وصلت إلى 55 حالة، في حين كانت 20 حالة في عام 2010.
كذلك، المرضى الذين كانوا يعانون من عدوى الهيليكوباكتر بيلوري أو كانوا يتناولون أدوية ما، بدأوا كذلك يعانون من التقرح الهضمي بعد 311.
أكبر مجموعة من المرضى سُجّلت عند المرضى فوق الخامسة و الستين عاماً، أكبر زيادة لوحِظت في المستشفيات في المنطقة الساحلية، التي دُمّرت في تسونامي بعد أول عشرة أيام بعد 311.
العشرة أيامٍ التي تلت 311 كانت لها الزيادة الاكبر في معدل المرض.



A Miyagi il numero di ulcere peptiche è aumentato di 3 volte dall’ 11.03

Il professor Iijima e il Dott. Kanno dell’Ospedale universitario di Tohoku hanno scoperto che il numero di ulcere peptiche è aumentato di 3 volte dall’11.03. L’ulcera peptica include l’ulcera gastrica e quella duodenale.
Essi ritengono che la causa sia lo stress psicogeno.
Il team di ricerca ha collezionato informazioni riguardanti i casi di ulcera peptica dai 7 maggiori ospedali nella prefettura di Miyagi per tre mesi a partire dall’11.03. Il risultato è stato di 383 casi, contro i 261 del 2010 (+150%).
Tra questi, i casi in cui l’ulcera peptica è stata diagnosticata esclusivamente per stress psicogeno sono 55 rispetto ai 20 del 2010.
I pazienti che soffrivano di Helicobacter pylori o che facevano uso di medicinali hanno a loro volta iniziato a soffrire di ulcera peptica dopo l’11.03.
Il gruppo maggiore è rappresentato da coloro che hanno più di 65 anni di età. Il più forte incremento è stato registrato negli ospedali delle aree costiere danneggiate dallo Tsunami nei primi 10 giorni dopo l’11.03.

En Miyagi, la fréquence des ulcères peptidiques s’est multipliée par 3 depuis le 11-3

M. Iijima, lecteur, et le Dr. Kanno de l’hôpital universitaire de Tohoku ont découvert que la fréquence des ulcères peptidiques s’est multipliée par 3 depuis le 11-3. Les ulcères peptidiques incluent les ulcères gastrique et duodénal.
Ils affirment que c’est dû à un stress d’origine psychologique.
L’équipe de recherche a collecté les informations sur les cas d’ulcères peptidiques de 7 hôpitaux principaux de la préfecture de Miyagi durant les 3 mois ayant suivi le 11-3.
Le nombre de cas d’ulcères peptidiques y est de 383, alors qu’il était de 261 en 2010. (↑150%)
Parmi ces cas, on en compte 55 diagnostiqués comme étant exclusivement dus au stress psychogène alors qu’il y en avait 20 en 2010.
Les patients à infection par Helicobacter pylori ou ayant abusé de médicaments ont aussi commencé à présenter des ulcères peptidiques après le 11-3.
La plus grande proportion a plus de 65 ans. La plus forte augmentation a été observée dans les hôpitaux de la région côtière, celle qui a subi le tsunami. Les 10 jours suivant le 11-3 sont ceux présentant la plus forte augmentation de ces fréquences.


About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
