I have gastritis and duodenitis. I have tested neg for H pylori. I get acid a lot. What else would cause this?

Causes of gastritis. The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflamed stomach." The term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, H.pylori infection, atrophic &hypersecretory problems.

Diarrhea 18 of past 30 days. Can IBS be this extreme? Miserable! Egd, cscopy, CT ruled most things out but did find hems, mild antral gastritis, polyp + visible inflam in sigmoid (bx normal).

Persistent diarrhes. Sounds like you have had a workup at the standard of practice. I have to assume that stool cultures and other stool exams as well as blood tests have been done. 18/30 days sounds like a bit much.

We can't do that for you, and if your personal physician is hasn't (these can be hard workups), get with a hematologist. Read more...
