Background:Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is a common disease of the gastrointestinal tract characterized by mucosal damage due to the secretion of pepsin and gastric acid. The current study aimed to determine the prevalence and causes of recurrent peptic ulcer. Methods:The current study adopted an exploratory study design in order to determine the prevalence and causes for recurrent peptic ulcer disease in individuals and predict an outcome. The participants for the current study were individuals belonging to the age group 18-75. This age group is chosen as the major influence of peptic ulcer disease is observed within this group.For the current study, questionnaire was adopted for data collection, which was also categorized as a study tool. Results:Study included 589 participants. It is noticed that most of participants (n= 530, 90.1%) strongly agree that they visit the doctor periodically to check on their health. Previous item has the highest rank followed by participants follow smoking lifestyle (n= 526, 89.4%). On the other hand, the least rank item on which participants strongly disagreed was participants suffered from soreness or bleeding from their stomach (n= 249, 42.4%). This gives a prevalence of 42.4% of peptic ulcer disease among study participants. Conclusion:Peptic ulcer illness burdens health care systems, which urge for adequate treatment to limit recurrence and effects. H. pylori, smoking, and aspirin usage are risk factors for 5-year peptic ulcer recurrence. Long-term PUD hazards include smoking and aspirin. Avoiding risk factors reduced the recurrence rate of H. pylori eradication, acid suppression medication, and surgery. This shows how eliminating risk factors may enhance long-term performance. Proper PUD treatment requires multicenter research to prevent recurrence and repercussions.
