Total confusion: Acne is not related to B12. Why B12? How did you arrive at the diagnosis of gastritis? NO GASTRITIS IS CAUSED BY SPICY FOODS OR ACIDIC FOODS. This silly idea was thrown out 60 years ago. It may be related to smoking, alcohol, meds, H. Pylori bacteria.Coconut water is not effective therapy for gastritis or anything else. ...Read more

Find a better Dr: Are you ALLERGIC to aspirin? Sensitive people get asthma, coughing, or hives from it. Gastritis due to prostaglandin inhibition is a function of dose. Taking 4 adult size aspirin daily will cause stomach symptoms in many people. Taking a large dose makes no sense. If you are allergic to it, avoid it. Why diphenhydramine? It is used mostly as a sleeping pill. There are better antihistamines. Do you ...Read more

Burning: Stomach ulcers caused by the H pylori bacteria may get a little better with antacids, but won't go away unless the bacteria is cleared. You might consider getting tested. The other possibility is functional dyspepsia which may respond to other meds. Talk with your GI about the cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

If I have gastritis or an ulcer, will the PPIs always help? I've been taking pantoprazole for a month, and I'm still experiencing stomach burning.

If I have gastritis or an ulcer, will the PPIs always help? I've been taking pantoprazole for a month, and I'm still experiencing stomach burning.

Return to your doc.: If you are still having symptoms after one month of a PPI, you should return to your doctor to see if further testing needs to be done, or if you need a different medication or a change in the dosage of the current one. In the meantime, it will not hurt to add over-the-counter antacids, such as Tums, (calcium carbonate) to your regimen. Good luck. ...Read more

Dyspepsia: It could be ulcer or gastritis. Have you tried OTC meds like zantac (ranitidine) or prilosec? If these have not helped at all then you need to see a GI specialist for further testing. If you haven't tried these meds then try for 2 weeks. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with precancer colon polyps and internal hemorrhoids and gastritis. Still have blood in stool with burning in my abdomen should I worry?

Depends: Gastritis should improve with dietary modifications, acid blockers, and possible H pylori treatment; if not, further evaluation may be needed. Colon polyps should be followed with colonoscopy anywhere from 6 months to 5 years later, depending on type of polyp and confidence in that it was completely removed. Internal hems bleed and the source needs to be addressed - constipation, straining, etc ...Read more

Focus correct issues: Plavix & aspirin usually Rx'ed for arterial disease plaque ruptures. But aspirin & NSAIDsgastritis, avoid. Optimize NMR-lipoproteins (get LDL-P to <400-700 nmol/dL), HbA1c <5.0%, SBP <120 mmHg, go HFLC foods & then stop the Plavix. The proton pump inhibitors you're taking tend to help but do not cure. Focus on causes of the gastritis. Study my answers, http://goo. Gl/7IyXwY & DietDoctor. Com. ...Read more

I Always Feel Bloated And My Stomach Feels Like Its Burning. Is It Gastritis? How Is Will It Be Cured?

I Always Feel Bloated And My Stomach Feels Like Its Burning. Is It Gastritis? How Is Will It Be Cured?

First find Diagnosis: Yes it can be gastritis. But that diagnosis can only be confirmed with upper endoscopy (Gastroscopy). If that is the cause then it is easy to treat and it can be cured. Most often we use antacids of one type or another and this eliminates acid in the stomach which then heals in one or two weeks. Go see your doctor to find the cause, only then it is treated properly. ...Read more
