The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

Had a egd done dr said he found extra channel to small intestine he said probably from a ulcer I'm confused?
A double pylorus: I suspect you have a "double pylorus". The pylorus is the part of the stomach leading to the first part of the small intestine (duodenal bulb). A double pylorus most commonly occurs as a result of a complication of an ulcer--the ulcer penetrates into the duodenal bulb creating a second opening to the small bowel. Less commonly a double pylorus is congenital meaning you were born with it.
Colonoscopy found tiny ulcers in my small intestine doc questioning if Crohn's can this be if after iron infusion I now have normal CBC and iron level?
Small or large?: Doesn't really make a lot of difference, but I suspect colonoscopy found ulcers in large intestine and your doc felt they might look like crohn's. A good response to iron infusion does not change any of the thinking about whether those lesions are crohn's like. The biopsy should give a lot more information.

Small intestines: Lesions in the small intestine are difficult to diagnose and often the patient has to swallow a camera like capsule to demonstrate it.

Can ulcers in the stomach, duodenum, and/or intestines cause these locations to become permeable to any degree?
Yes: Ulcers are the result of the loss of the normal protective lining...Permeability will increase until the ulcer heals.
OTC meds?: First be sure the diagnosis is confirmed by a doctor. There is a bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers and you should be checked for this.

I had a diagnostic colonoscopy done due to bleeding and they found 2 ulcers in my intestines. Biopsies came back good what is the cause and treatment?
NSAID, etc.: The most common reason for ulcers in the intestines is from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (nsaids, ibuprofen, naproxen, et.). Other possibilities include crohn's disease, or many other possibilities, including infections. If this is NSAID induced, the treatment is avoidance of nsaids. If this is infection, it will resolve. But if it's crohn's, you need specific medical therapy.See 1 more doctor answer
I have an infection in my stomach that can cause ulcers in my intestines I'm also 8 weeks pregnant can it harm my baby?
Unlikely to happen: To harm your baby an infection would need to gain access by entering the blood or getting through the wall of tissues surrounding the gestational sac. Localized infections like you mention do not. Thhe medications you may take to get rid of the germ are also unlikely to bother baby.
Yes: Fup with a doctor to come up with a long term treatment plan. Do you need to be tested for HPylori? Do you have a bed board? Have you made some lifestyle changes like diet and exercise to curb the ulcer? Have long have you been taking Prilosec? Do you need an EGD? Doctor can helo guide the treatment..See 1 more doctor answer
IBD,: Especially crohn's disease, is a clinical diagnosis, not a pathologic diagnosis. That means you can still have it even though the biopsies do not show it. These ulcers might have a different cause, such as medication or infection. Ask your GI specialist for specific advice.
If intestinal permeability is sometimes associated with autoimmunity, couldn't stomach ulcers also cause autoimmunity in some cases?
