A member asked:

Egd showed stomach full of bile & gastritis. md presribed carfate.do i need to take something to reduce the bile such as questran?why so much bile?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Surgery the best Rx: Reflux gastritis can result from excess bile in the duodenum, lack of a pylorus as a barrier to retrograde flow. Results of medical therapy with chelating agents or drugs that promote gastric motility have been disappointing. Diet and antacids frequently aggravate symptoms. The only effective treatment is surgical diversion of bile. current medical therapy may alter but not cure symptoms of bile
