How is Gastritis diagnosed?
If you have symptoms of Gastritis, one of our Triborough GI doctors will collect a complete medical history and conduct a physical examination. You may also have to undergo several tests. The most common of these is an endoscopy with a biopsy of the stomach.
This procedure entails the use of a flexible lighted tube with a camera known as an endoscope. An endoscope is guided through the mouth and throat, into the esophagus, stomach, and the first part of the small intestine. The doctor will look at these areas and may take tissue samples for testing.
Another test that may be conducted by your physician is an Upper GI Series, also known as a Barium Swallow. For this test, you will be asked to swallow a liquid that contains barium, making your digestive tract visible in an X-ray. X-ray images may show changes in your stomach lining such as ulcers.
Other tests such as blood tests, checking for H. pylori and anemia, and stool test, to check for blood, may be conducted as well.
How to treat Gastritis?
Gastritis is often treated with medications and lifestyle changes. This will help reduce stomach acid, relieve symptoms and heal the stomach lining. Avoid medication, food and drinks that irritate the stomach lining. If you have gastritis, make sure to avoid the following:
- Spicy and acidic foods
Medicines that block or reduce stomach acid to treat gastritis include:
- Histamine blockers
- Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs)
- Surface agents
If gastritis is caused by an infection or illness such as H. pylori, immediate treatment for the cause is needed.
Speak with your healthcare provider about your symptoms. He/she will help you find the best treatments for your needs.
