Hypertensive gastropathy

Posted by lskoehl62 @lskoehl62, Jun 17 10:03am

I just got the results from my upper GI Endoscopy.
It says I have hypertensive gastropathy was found in the entire examined stomach. Just wondering if anyone else in the group has ever been diagnosed with this condition. Thanks

Here is another link to information from the Verywellhealth website, https://www.verywellhealth.com/portal-hypertensive-gastropathy-5201572#:~:text=Portal%20hypertensive%20gastropathy%20(PHG)%20refers,(scarring%20of%20the%20liver).

I'm wondering what symptoms you might have been having that led to this diagnosis? Did your doctor give you a treatment plan?

I am sorry to hear of the symptoms you are experiencing, @lskoehl62 . Have you been referred to a Hepatologist? This is a doctor who specializes in liver disorders. If you aren't seeing a hepatologist, I would suggest that you ask your current doctor for a referral to one so that you can be sure you get the best follow up care possible.

Is there a history of liver problems in your family?

@iskoehl62, I have not been diagnosed with it. I'm a big fan of magnesium, annatto tocotrienol and carnitine for general health. These links offer benefits for the liver to discuss with your doctor.
