It is a term applied for excessive secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. There are several juices produced by our stomach to digest the foods. HCL is necessary to breakdown the food particles in their minute form. Gastrin is the hormone responsible for stimulation of acid secretion, whereas somatostatin suppresses acid secretion in the stomach. The excessive secretion of acid in the stomach leads to formation of ulcer.
