Life stress: Directly visualizing the lining of your stomach is valuable enough for your dr to tell you that you have signs of acid burning the lining of your stomach. The good news is that the microscope did not shows significant damage from acid erosion. This life we live is stressful enough. Listen to your dr, take acid-reducing pills, and manage a known problem before you really drill down to an open ulcer. ...Read more

What can help recover minor gastric erosion?

What can help recover minor gastric erosion?

Avoid the cause: If you know the cause of the erosion- alcohol, aspirin, motrin, advil, alleve- I would say to avoid these medications. Try and find out the cause from the treating doctor. I diet low in fat and fried foods and low in caffeine may help by not further irritating the area. Ask your doctor if he wants to prescribe a medicine for the erosion. But first and foremost, find the cause. ...Read more

Is there any tips to increase my weight. I m 5'7" and my weight is58. I have slow digestion prob & gastric( no erosion anywhere)..

3,500 kcal = 1 pound: I assume you're 58kg so your body mass index (http://www.Nhlbi.Nih.Gov/guidelines/obesity/bmi/bmicalc.Htm) is normal at 20.0. Check w/your doctor to be sure your thyroid (and rest of you) is normal. Then eat 500cal more each day than you exercise in order to achieve excess of 3, 500cal/wk to gain 1 pound each week. Consider mediterranean diet which has evidence of long-term health benefit. ...Read more
