In brief: Sometimes

H. pylori may cause it, and it is reversible if treated.
See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22565637 See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achlorhydria for more info--may be caused by hypothyroidism, pernicious anemia, islet cell tumors, zinc and/or iodine deficiency. Recommend seeing a gastroenterologist for complete evaluation.
