Common risk factors in the development of gastritis include alcohol, NSAIDs, cocaine, crohn’s disease, HIV/AIDS, and bacterial infections such as Helicobacter pylori. Less common risk factors in the development of gastritis include food poisoning (bacterial gastroenteritis), autoimmune disorders such as pernicious anemia , Hashimoto’s disease and type 1 diabetes; stress as a result of major surgery, trauma or other illness; traumatic injury, burns, severe infections, bile reflux, low fiber diet, processed food as the primary diet, and viral and parasitic infections.
