Focus correct issues: Plavix (clopidogrel) (& aspirin) usually Rx'ed for arterial disease plaque ruptures. (Aspirin & NSAIDs promote gastritis, don't take.) Optimize NMR lipoproteins (get LDL-P ? to <700 nmol/dL), HbA1c <5.0%, SBP <120 mmHg, go HFLC foods & then stop the Plavix (clopidogrel). The proton pump inhibitors you're taking tend to help but do not cure. Focus on the causes of the gastritis. Study my answers, DietDoctor.com FatChance.html ...Read more
