Dr said i had slight gastric erosion after endoscopy. Everything else was normal.. Biopsied the area and it came back as  normal. How can that be?

No test is perfect: Sometimes mucosal pits or dents can look like erosions, and on stomach biopsy prove normal. Sometimes, tiny gastric lesions are targeted for biopsy, but surrounding unaffected tissue is obtained instead. Your doctor may be suspicious of erosive disease & will be gratified if you respond to his empiric treatment of it. Certainly express your concerns to the treating physician if still symptomatic. ...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, (ibuprofen) 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

Please can I have info on cervical erosion. I never got any kind if treatment when i was told I have it. Confused? Is there a way to heal it on my own

Outdated term: In the us, this term isn't used, as it doesn't have a specific definition or cause.In other parts of the world, it's been used to describe a red appearance of the cervix, which may be caused by infection, stds, or may be normal.See a gyno now, and ask if there's any abnormal appearance, and get tested for stds if needed. Then use condoms in the future if you may be at risk for stds. ...Read more

After 8 weeks of Nexium&Protonix40mg treatment egd still shows erosive gastritis. No biopsy taken due to Plavix (clopidogrel). What blood/other testing do I need?

Focus correct issues: Plavix (clopidogrel) (& aspirin) usually Rx'ed for arterial disease plaque ruptures. (Aspirin & NSAIDs promote gastritis, don't take.) Optimize NMR lipoproteins (get LDL-P ? to <700 nmol/dL), HbA1c <5.0%, SBP <120 mmHg, go HFLC foods & then stop the Plavix (clopidogrel). The proton pump inhibitors you're taking tend to help but do not cure. Focus on the causes of the gastritis. Study my answers, DietDoctor.com FatChance.html ...Read more

Gastric Crohn's : There is always a risk of relapse of Crohn's disease, no matter which part of the digestive tract it is in. Treatment with prednisone does not increase the chances of a relapse. It is impossible to predict what the odds of a relapse are, since Crohn's disease is not very predictable in any patient. I would discuss this question with your gastroenterologist. Good luck. ...Read more
