I have been diagnosed with gastritis duodentis. This condition is almost 2 months old with constant nausea and occasional stomach aches occuring very early in the morning. I have started taking carafate and this being the 2nd week I am feeling a little better. My doctor told me to be on a fat free diet which I have been doing for weeks. I do not have the bacteria H. Pylori. My question is will I always be susceptible to this condition and how long does this take? I won't be seeing my doctor until 3 months and am assuming I should stay on the non fat diet.View Thread
