My last upper scope, showed mild chronic inactive gastritis. Is there a way to resolve this so it isn't a chronic condition? If it is inactive is it still damaging? Is there a cancer risk?

My last upper scope, showed mild chronic inactive gastritis. Is there a way to resolve this so it isn't a chronic condition? If it is inactive is it still damaging? Is there a cancer risk?

Gastritis: Unfortunately, this is a fairly ambiguous result ... However, it is normally seen in patients who have a bacterial infection called Helicobacter Pylori. You might want to follow up with your GI doctor to see if a simple breath test might be appropriate to test for this infection. If so, treatment is usually a simple cocktail of antibiotics and acid suppression. Hope this helps! ...Read more

How do I stimulate my appetite. I have gastritis and haven't the desire to eat as I have no appetite. I have been drinking fluids though.

Poor appetitie: See your doc to rule out/identify medical conditions. Drink a glass of lemon water about 1/2 hour before a meal to stimulate gastric juices and appetite. Are you under a great deal of stress or worrying about something? If so, consider consulting w/a mental health professional or trusted friend to help you sort things out and cope. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I take gas x every day. They told me that I may have gastritis... And if gas x is a drug, isn't it bad every day?

I take gas x every day. They told me that I may have gastritis... And if gas x is a drug, isn't it bad every day?

Not necessarily bad: Gasx is simethicone, which works on gas. Not necessarily bad. However, if you have gastritis, you probably need to deal with the acidity as well. Acid buffers or blockers would help the gastritis greatly. Buffers such as antacids like maalox, mylanta, tums, etc work well. Acid blockers like zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid (histamine blockers) or prilosec/ Prevacid (proton pump inhibitors) are very effective. ...Read more

Was diagnosed with Gerd and gastritis but doesn't the pain supposed to come and go why is it agony pain constantly 2 days straight?

Was diagnosed with Gerd and gastritis but doesn't the pain supposed to come and go why is it agony pain constantly 2 days straight?

Possibly not GERD: GERD and gastritis are 2 diagnoses which are frequently made on a "clinical basis", that is, without further testing to back up the diagnoses. The doctor who made the diagnosis may not have been correct. It is possible that pain from your gallbladder can mimic the pain of gastritis. If you are having nausea/vomiting, fevers/chills, or worsening pain, particularly with movement, go to the ER. ...Read more

I have gastritis. I'm on a diet but I don't know exactly what food to eat. Can I eat soy? Breaded soy steak but baked and without oil?

Gastritis : Gastritis is just a general term for inflammation in the stomach. Without more details on how you were diagnosed as having gastritis, it is impossible to know what kind of dietary recommendations to give you. Gen recommendations would be to avoid any particular foods which you notice cause or worsen your pain. Otherwise, I would need more details about your gastritis in order to give you better advice. ...Read more

3-6 months: 3-6 months is generally needed to know if treatment has worked. This is very specialized treatment that should be done in conjunction with a fertility specialist and sometimes in cooperation with a gyn cancer specialist so you have a good understanding of what is going on, how you monitor things, and how long you should wait before trying to become pregnant. ...Read more
