Erosive Duodenitis Polyposis
I was diagnosed with celiac disease for around 6 years. An endoscopy has detected severe duodenitis, associated with erosions. Can there be a link?

Depends.: I presume your diagnosis of erythematous duodenitis was made at upper endoscopy. How to treat it depends on what the cause is.. Your G.I. doctor probably made biopsies, which may give a cause. He will work out with you watch the treatment should be, based on those findings. Good luck. ...Read more
I have duodenitis which hasnt been an issue lately, however, for the past 3 months I have pressure pain right below the sternum. What can cause?
Breaking it down...: Focal = a spot, not all over. Chronic = constant, not once-in-a-while. Peptic-type = damaged by exposure to stomach acid. Duodenitis = inflammation/damage of duodenum, the very beginning of the small intestine that actually connects to the end of your stomach. H. Pylori negative = it was not associated with a bacterial infection that is well known to cause ulcers. Hope that is helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Upper GI liquid wldnt pass stom. Resumed 10 min later barely emptying. He said duodenitis or chronic pancreatitis(levels weren't up) doc said negativ?
Delayed emptying : Delayed gastric emptying can be caused by a number of things. An upper GI study may sometimes provide the answer and sometimes additional diagnostic studies are needed. 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
