Hello,
Gastritis refers to a group of conditions that involve the inflammation of the lining of the stomach. It can cause weight loss, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting and occasionally hametemesis.In mild cases, over-the-counter antacids may help. In more severe cases, the doctor may prescribe an acid blocker like ranitidine. Or proton pump inhibitor, which helps to reduce stomach acid. Chronic gastritis is a risk factor for peptic ulcer disease, gastric polyps, and benign and malignant gastric tumors. Wait for the biopsy results. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
