I have problems with chronic gastritis, which may be an ulcer. I cannot tolerate cheese, in this case low-fat mozzarella. Is it part of the gastric problem? I use lactose-free soy milk and do not drink anything with caffeine. I do not smoke and avoid fats as much as possible.

Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining. Have you been diagnosed with gastritis or an ulcer? There are numerous causes and numerous symptoms of both. You also could be lactose intolerant. This condition has many of the same symptoms as gastritis. You should see your health care professional for diagnosis and treatment.
