Permanent Cure For Gastritis
Hi I would like to know if there is a permanent cure for mild chronic inactive gastritis in the antrum of my stomach. Would this heal completely?
Permanent cure?: Having a condition well-managed or resolved would be more realistic. In the case of "mild chronic inactive gastritis" you do not have active irritation of the stomach lining, but only signs that you did have mild chronic gastritis. The stomach lining should continue to heal unless you have H.pylori (likely checked with gastric biopsy), but this can be treated if found. Acid blockers also help. ...Read more

No: Nothing is permanent, except maybe death.Get a more detailed answer ›
Possibly surgery: It depends on what actually caused the gastritis but very commonly it's from decreased stomach motility and a failing gastroesophageal flap valve that, besides causing reflux (gerd), decreases the strength of the stomach to push the acid out of the stomach. Stomach acid is so strong that if it sits in the stomach too long it even hurts the stomach lining. This can be fixed by fixing the valve. ...Read more
