Chronic non-helicobactor, nsaid, drinker, h-pylori or bile gastritis for five years. Can foveolar hyperplasia lead to gastric cancer?

Unlikely: Yet chronic gastritis can lead to problems, so it must be treated medically and all irritants like alcohol and nsaids(aspirin and motrin) use minimized or avoided altogether if possible. You should use tylenol (acetaminophen) instead of nsaids. ...Read more

Gastroscopy to check my stomach and duodenum. Samples were taken and initial diagnosis of gastritis and duodenitis. Are samples checked for coeliac?

Biopsy 4 celiac.: Biopsy samples of the duodenum should evidence findings consistent with celiac disease, as long as the samples are taken from the appropriate area, which may then depend on the GI doctor's clinical suspicion of celiac disease. Generally speaking, though, a suspicion of celiac disease can be confirmed histologically. ...Read more

Can h pylori cause gallbladder problems? Hida scan showed dysfunctional gallbladder with no stones and no obstructions. Tested positive for h pylori.

Possibly: H. Pylori species, have been implicated as a possible cause of chronic gall bladder disease, inflammation in bile ducts, gall-bladder carcinoma and primary hepatic carcinomas. Dna of h. Pylori have been found in association with gall bladder disease but not the presence of the viable organisms. Further research needs to be performed to see if this organism causes biliary diseases. ...Read more

Endoscopy bx reads: gastric antral bx showing erosion, chronic inflammation and reactive changes, neg for h. Pylori and malignancy. What does thismean?

Not bad: It means that you probably have some irritation of the stomach lining. The most common causes are acid over-production or bile reflux. It is good news that the h. Pylori is negative and that there is no malignancy. You may need some medication and a re-scope in a few months to ensure proper healing. ...Read more

I have negative celiac blood test and no IgA deficiency but biopsy shows chronic non-specific duodenitis and celiac symptoms are present.Need  help.
?

Be more specific: If IgA tTG was negative, there is a very little chance that you have celiac disease. However, other conditions may mimic gluten-sensitivity and some people may actually be allergic to wheat itself causing similar symptoms. The biopsy findings should be quite specific for gluten intolerance. What actually are your symptoms? ...Read more

Dysphasia that is fixed with Nexium (esomeprazole) yet endoscopy shows healthy non erosive esophagus and biopsies were negative for all tests? What could cause this?

Bile reflux, NSAIDS, alcohol), Neuroendocrine tumors (ex. gastronomes) or even gastric cancer. ...Read more

Egd with pathology report, upper GI series or h. pylori test. are these two different tests. can you tell me about it?

Yes: Egd or upper endoscopy consists of direct visualization of the upper gi tract through passing a scope down to your upper part of duodenum. The test may include biopsy based on findings or clinical suspicion. Upper Gi series consists of x-rays taken after you swallow a barium based paste. H pylori can be tested in blood, stool, or stomach biopsy. ...Read more

Besides endoscopy with biopsy (for h. Pylori check) which exams can be done to investigate other causes of gastritis?

Besides endoscopy with biopsy (for h. Pylori check) which exams can be done to investigate other causes of gastritis?

Your doctor can figr: Your md can easily figure this out from your history. The common causes are alcohol especially excessive use on an empty stomach, use of Aspirin like drugs like Motrin and peptobismol. Gastritis heals well fast with use of good antacids, so do not get hung up on the cause. Get treated quickly and it will be soon gone and you will be well, provided you avoid the use /abuse of above irritants. ...Read more

What are tests and treatment for bile reflux disease?

What are tests and treatment for bile reflux disease?

Ph-impedance : This is a test that requires a tube that passes through the nose and in to the stomach and stays there for 24 hours. If looking specifically for bile reflux, stay on anti-acid medications. I will tell you about liquid reflux, and on medication that would typically be non acid liquid and/or bile. Its important to correlate your symptoms with these reflux events. May need a referral to a GI doc for This. Hope this helps! ...Read more
