My doctor wants to ask about erosive chronic gastritis, what does mild atrophy mean?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Gastritis is a general term for inflammation of the stomach. In your case, the inflammation has been going on for so long (years) that it causes atrophy (reduced size) of cells in the inner lining of your stomach. In short, your condition can be called atrophic gastritis. Atrophic gastritis can be caused by 2 things, the most frequent cause is bacterial Helicobacter pylori infection, another less common cause is autoimmune gastritis (gastritis that occurs because the body's immune system attacks the body's own cells, in this case stomach cells). The presence of Helicobacter pylori bacterial infection can be confirmed by other tests (breath test, blood test, feces, or checking the results of a gastric biopsy). If you also experience pernicious anemia (anemia that occurs due to vitamin B12 deficiency), then the diagnosis may be more directed to autoimmune gastritis.


We recommend that you bring the results of the examination back to your internal medicine doctor for further examination and treatment. Atrophic gastritis can increase your risk of developing gastric cancer, so do an examination and treatment as recommended by your doctor.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
