    Intestinal Metaplasia

    Was recently diagnosed with Intestinal Metaplasia and Gastric Atrophy. I have both the complete and Incomplete(bad) type. I have the BRCA mutation which includes gastric cancer.
    I tested negative for H Pylori. Intestinal Metaplasia did not show up two years prior. My follow up will be a complete mapping in one year. My gastro thought fine to wait 2 or 3 years. I did not.
    From what the Doctor said and from what I read I fear there is nothing I can do but sit and wait. It is upsetting that nothing can be treated until it turns to cancer. I believe Gastric Cancer increases 600 percent after this diagnosis.
    I also have Gerd. I do not want to start taking Pantoprazole because of the side effects I read. One being cancer.
    Is there any advice you can give me?
    I started drinking potato juice daily. Does anyone know anything about that helping?
    Any hopeful information would be appreciated.
