In brief: Endoscopy

The primary way to know is through an endoscopy.
Sometimes being on med's like Nexium (esomeprazole) for prolonged periods can also cause chronic atrophic gastritis. People also forget to stay regimented with their food, be aware of other meds like NSAIDS, and practice continuous stress management.
