I have gastritis and duodenitis. I have tested neg for H pylori. I get acid a lot. What else would cause this ?

I have gastritis and duodenitis. I have tested neg for H pylori. I get acid a lot. What else would cause this ?

Causes of gastritis: The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflamed stomach." The term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, H.pylori infection, atrophic &hypersecretory problems. Start with acid blockers, diet modification, avoid alcohol/tobacco. ...Read more

One weak before my upper endoscopy test was done and result shows Lax Les, nodular duodenitis. What does it mean? Is it serious?

Waiting for Biopsy?: nodular duodenitis is an atypical finding that is likely associated with peptic ulcer disease. They are usually found to be normal tissue, but you may get more information once the pathologist has reviewed the biopsy sample. LES laxity means your lower esophageal sphincter is "saggy" and is associated with reflux disease. Not to be concerned but likely more info coming with the nodule biopsy. ...Read more

Upper endoscopy would be a good next step for looking at the anatomy. Gastric emptying and motility studies can provide more information when indicated. Enzymes can be normal in chronic pancreatitis & would need ct/mri &/or eus. ...Read more
