I have beem unwell from last year but now i am getting worse did you look report? How,could a dr diagnose me with gastritis without performing endscopy

Gastritis is a clinical presentation, you do not need an endoscopy for that.

However if you have had symptoms for more than a few months, then yes an endoscopy would be wise.

You should be on a high dose PPI (Omeprazole/Lansoprazole), and also due a repeat blood test following this report as your kidney function had deteriorated slightly. This can be from something as simple as dehdyration.

If this has been for more than 6 weeks, ask your GP to urgently refer you as you would be able to go on an urgent pathway meaning the Gastroenterologist would see you within 2 weeks.

I had an endoscopy last year they took biopsy but nothing was concerning. They said it was mild inflammation in esophagus.

Okay, well that is reassuring then, which makes gastritis more likely.

This therefore will require medical management and unlikely to need any intervention.

As mentioned, a high dose PPI will help, would be worth speaking to your doctor about excluding H.Pylori if it has flared up. However according to the report, you need to make some lifestyle changes, certainly reduce your weight to a healthier level and also consider dietary causes that could be aggravating it.

I was also diagnosed with active hpylori last year but was given antibiotics for 2 weeks

Okay. Reinfection isn't uncommon.

Best of luck with this, I hope your GP can get you investigated again

I have a erectile dysfunction since 4 says

Please feel free to ask any further questions if you have any.

ED would not be caused by gastritis, however if you have upper GI symptoms, it would be normal not to have a sexual drive. Any pain and discomfort would greatly stop you maintaining an erection

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Its not about maintaining an erection its like no streghth in ? Do you think it neurological problem?

If you can get an erection, then no it is unlikely to be a neurological problem.

You could try a low dose Sildenafil to see if this helps get you back to normal.
