  1. B is the answer and the winner is Eze
    Details Below:
    Patient should be advised to avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as
    aspirin and to inform prescribers and pharmacists of his condition before using
    other medications. NSAIDs are very likely to cause gastrointestinal distress and
    precipitate an acute attack. He should be advised to take regular small meals,
    avoid strong tea, coffee and spicy food and limit food intake late at night as
    this increases nocturnal gastric secretion. Anxiety, stress, alcohol and smoking
    all contribute to precipitate duodenal ulcer disease.
