Gastroenterologist: Mild inflammatory changes of the stomach lining was found, but intestinal metaplasia means that some of the stomach lining has morphed into a potentially premalignant pattern. Absence of dysplasia is favorable. Because of metaplasia I feel you should be carefully followed by a gastroenterologist who will monitor your situation with periodic endoscopic examinations. You don't need treatment for HP
