Gastritis

Hey all. Just had my endoscopy and blood tests two days ago, so I'm waiting on the results. They did find gastritis of the Antrum (upper part of the stomach). Not diagnosed officially with GERD, but they put me on prilosec with a watch and see attitude. The constant kicked in the stomach feeling is a little less after two days. They took six biopsies of my small intestine, and one of the gastritis to test for H. Pylori.

Just a heads up also to new England folks. Dr. Sheth and the staff at the gastroenterology endoscopy center of Beth Israel in Boston have been wonderful. Though he doubts celiac for me, he's been very conservative in treatment standards, taken all necessary tests, and definitely thinks I'm non celiac gluten sensitive.

As an aside, I've read studies demonstrating lymphcytic infiltrative gastritis in as much as. 50% of celiac patients. So it seems to be a very common disease manifestation anyway. I'm very eager to learn my results, which hopefully will be available shortly.

I too had blood work and EGD recently. My blood work was neg. I had acid reflux, and gastritis. My biopsy's were neg. I was told that since I'm already lactose intolerant and have IBS that is what it is. He wouldn't even admit that gluten intolerance could be an issue. Stupid dr! I'm glad you have a good dr. Hang in there. This is a great place for info!

    • Ken, I have the same thing. Did you ever find a reason or solution? I'm tired of shampoos and creams that only work short term. My problem cropped up after I had gone gluten-free. Thanks!
    • Hi, I recently was tested (blood) and got a positive for celiac disease. I'm 31 and have had 3 kids, and no longer have the urge to urinate. I birthed all of my children naturally, no c-sections, no surgeries. I thought perhaps there was some trauma during the birth and attributed it to that. But have come across a few things online saying that bladder problems can be related to celiac disease? I have been to a few doctors for this problem, including a very confused urologist (I asked him about my stomach bloating issue with pictures of it- before having any clue it was from celiac!) and he wanted to run some tests but I have not been back. I had multiple (or perhaps just one very bad) urinary infections which would not go away for about 6 months. The last round of harder antibiotics finally killed it off. Has anyone else had this problem? I have not met with a GI yet to ask, I'm super poor right now! hah.
    • You're right on the extremes, I'm sitting in a gluten-free food festival right now and still unsure if to eat anything which I guess means I've hit the extreme end of the scale. Seem to be noticing the recovery pattern over the course of 6 weeks or so after a gluten hit. Will be very interesting to see what the blood test readings come out like when I eventually get them done again. And thanks for the good wishes
    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see!
