I hv sliding hiatus hernia with gerd, esophagitis la grade b, duodanitis.I don't have any symptom now like heartburn etc.Does it mean, medication NT rqr?

Stay on meds: I would use anti-acid producing medication until you know the damage to your esophagus heals. This means another endoscopy. If the esophagitis comes back after healing and stopping meds, may need to consider an anti-reflux procedure which could be done endoscopically or surgically.

Complex answer: It sounds like you have a good start in treating your symptoms.I assume an endoscopy was done. Especially if there is a family history of heart disease at younger age, this should be considered. Also you should look at your gall baldder and liver function as well.
