Medical News Today - inflammatory connection to abdominal pain.

A small study led by the Mayo Clinic has discovered that there is an abnormal amount of inflammatory cells in duodenum of those with upper abdomen pain.

It is suggested that new medications targeted to deal with this inflammation might provide relief.

The interesting question is why inflammation is present. Researchers have speculated on a possible cause. You can read the article in Medical News Today which has news highlights to the bottom left of this page.

Personally I wonder if increasing inflammation targeting free radicals in diet might be a good way of decreasing this inflammation. I also wonder what part free radical causing stress has to do with this.
