Gastritis and malnutrition?

Hi, I had a biopsy and colonoscopy and they found I have AMAG autoimmune mataplatic atopic gastritis.
since autoimmune no meds to fix this. I wonder if in addition to B12 (no intrinsic factor) is there other issues
of not absorbing vitamins minerals with food and or vitamin pills i should be aware of?
2. is having a damaged lining--mine is completely flat-no bumps-- probable to cause problems,
(discomfort, food particles seeping through lining??)  
I would like to take some vitamins but don't know if it is worth it with a damaged lining.

also does amag mean/lead to less acid production than optimal??
