The management of ulcer disease all depends on the etiology of the ulcer. If it's secondary to a bacterial infection and you treat that, you should be cured and not have to worry about it in the future. If it has to do with your lifestyle that has to do with stress induced ulceration, those patients should definitely exercise more or try to find coping skills in order to reduce that stress. Dietary changes definitely help improve the long-term prognosis for ulcer disease. And obviously avoiding medications that put you at risk for ulcer disease is definitely the number one thing that a patient should do.
