Home remedies for duodenitis include the use of banana, honey, carrot juice, raw cabbage, food containing high fiber content such as oats, barley, lentils, and fruits rich in vitamin A, such as tomatoes, peaches, and watermelon.

Duodenitis is a condition where there is inflammation in the duodenum, which is located at the start of the small intestine. This condition can cause abdominal pain along with other uncomfortable gastrointestinal symptoms. The main reason for duodenitis can be a bacterial infection in the stomach. [1]

While there are different types of duodenitis, the inflammation almost always causes an irritation of the mucus lining of the duodenum. Precautions need to be taken at all times until it is completely cured. If immediate attention is not given, it can further lead to duodenal ulcers as well. Fortunately, there are various home remedies available that help in relieving the symptoms of duodenitis.
