What would cause inflammation in stomach and intestines in 77 year old with low hemoglobin of (77). No bleeding in GI scope.

AVM Bleeding Anemia: 77 years old with a hemoglobin of 7.7 & not 77, with bleeding in stomach & intestines. Negative endoscopy (egd) or a colonoscopy. I feel: a capsule endoscopy was not done, to look at small intestine, which i recommend.

I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount(Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?

I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount(Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?

Endoscopy report: Erythema is of little significance without a biopsy of the area to correlate, large food residue could mean you have gastroparesis, or slow stomach emptying that might benefit from medication (or small frequent meals), and I'm glad that the antrum was biopsied. That's a place where you are likely to find H pylori if they are present. ...Read more

If food & liquids collect in the esophagus, they can cause a bloated sensation as well as the symptoms you describe. Use HealthTap Prime or talk to your prirmary doctor about your medications & a possible repeat endoscopy (by a GI doc). Thanks, GL ...Read more
