ACHLORHYDRIA

Written by

Achlorhydria means an absence of HYDROCHLORIC ACID from the STOMACH’s secretions. If the condition persists after the administration of HISTAMINE, the person probably has atrophy of the stomach lining. Achlorhydria occurs in about 4 per cent of healthy people and in several conditions, including PERNICIOUS ANAEMIA, carcinoma of the stomach and GASTRITIS.
