Re: Gerd, stomach and fundus oplyps, Barrett's esophagus
I am sorry about your familie's condition-- it is probably a geneic problem or an immune system aliment since 80% of immune problems are caused by your gastrointestinal system.
Having gastritis for 40 years evidentently has not responded to the doctors treatment that you have been given.
Some people don't respond to proton pump inhibitors or anti-acid medications prior to PPIs.
There are alternatives.
I get gastritis every time I take an antibiotic for 4 or 5 days--- And, PPIs do not work for me either.
In 2002 a MD that treats with alternative mediction gave me Mastica (aka Mastic Gum)--- It just so happened that I had privious scheduled an Endoscope exam to recheck the gastritis-- 2 weeks after beginning the Mastica --- the Gastro doctor found the gastritis was cured.
I took several PPIs for a month with no relief.
I wish you and your family find a cure for your conditions---Harry
BTY-- I found elevating the head of my bed 4 inches helps Acid Reflux.
