Small intestine damage
My GI doctor said parts of my small intestine are damaged and turned into stomach/gastric tissue. What caused that and what can I do about it? Is it permanent? I was drinking up to 3, yes 3, pots of coffee a day before I developed acid reflux and numerous health problems ensued.

Hi there!

Gastric mucosa in small intestine is congenital and unlikely to be secondary. It may occasionally lead to complications such as ulceration etc.; while intestinal mucosa in the upper GI may develop due to secondary insult and is considered premalignant. I would suggest discussing the situation and the appropriate management plan in detail with your treating gastroenterologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
