I got same sort of diagnosis after Mayo did my endoscopy biopsy. They were great at explaining it all to me. Mine however was precancerous. My advice is ask as many questions as you have. make a list, plan your appointment. What would you really like to know?
Use patient portals to get answers also.

I also had Barrett's esophagus. It was gone on my last EGD scope. The low acid diet does work. I'm also on a PPI Pantaprazole to shut off the acid.

I don’t mean to bare bad news but PPI’s science has learned are not very good for you and make you prone to too many bad illnesses. My wife gave them up with the aid of this program which essentially stops almost all carbs. We both lost weight are feel so much healthier and we pretty much swore of carbs at meals. https://digestivehealthinstitute.org/contact-us/

I agree, long term use of PPI's have damaged my liver and are only meant to be use short term, not daily. Have you doctor check for low acid. It has the same symptoms as to much acid. Thank you to my sister and mom, I found out that I have low acid and the PPI's were just making things worse. Good luck!

I have been on PPI's for 6 months and continue with stomach pain/discomfort. I go in for a second endoscopy in a few days for a bravo study to measure my acid level. I suspect I may be low rather than high acid as well so they agreed to the procedure. How did you determine you were low acid? Have your symptoms resolved? Thanks for sharing.

It was my mom and sister and they see a natural path MD and when PPI's were making thing worse, then she gave them something for low acid with instructions to take before eating and it worked. I had a NF done and I'm now going to have it undone and the surgeon that is going to take it down was surprised that they didn't do a 24 hour PH test on me before just jumping into a NF. So they can test you for it or trial and error. There are some natural things that I have read about online. Hope this helps and good luck to you.
