High gastrin levels
I was diagnosed with GERD when I was approximately eleven years old, I’ve been taking anti-acid, prescribed by a gastroenterologist since then. Now I have 18 years old and still with the same symptoms. My first endoscopy was made at the age of 13 and the results were esofagitis and reactive changes on the upper part of the stomach, the second one they do it when I was 17 and I still have chronic esofagitis. I took everyday Prilosec 40 and 20 mg, the first one in the morning and the other one before going to bed, Zantac 300 mg and baclofen 10 mg. I just have a question, and I wish some of you can help me. My gastrin levels, on the last lab were on 262. At first they do a lot of studies trying to find a gastrinoma, and they found a lession on the pancreas, but then they’ve done other studies where it doesn’t appear. I ask my pediatrician if the high gastrin levels could be because of the high dosis of my meds, she told me that it could’ve been that if they weren’t that high. I just wish someone can help me with this. It has been almost seven years since the first diagnosis and I still don’t know practically anything. I feel like if I were on the limbo.
