Jan 21, 2018 · Intestinal metaplasia and Barrett esophagus in Digestive Health

Hi, I’m 28. Was just Dx with Intestinal Metaplasia on Friday. Shocking to me as I’m not overweight, don’t smoke or drink but of course I have a family history/genetic fsctorso — my grandma died from H. pylori. Funny enough I’m negative for it. Also had a polyp removed that they said would have turned to cancer had it not been removed. My GI dr said I’m “high risk” but I’m fine. He told me to tale Zantac 2x day. Still lots of burning in my stomach going on. Researched and no articles say Zantac reverses or helps IM. Looking for advice, diet help, anything? Feeling a bit nervous and confused.
