I'm a Crohnie though there is still no conclusive diagnosis. Yesterday, i had a CT enterocolonography and an upper and lower scopes. I have long standing GERD for 15 years. The results of the upper endoscopy showed I have GERD LA B, antral gastritis and duodenal diverticulum. My question is about GERD grade B. I read that they decided to follow universal guidelines and it was that the Los Angelos ones will be followed. Based on these guidelines, I fall into grade B as I have one or two mucosal breaks that are longer than 5mm. I'm on Nexium 40 mg double dose, famotidine 20 mg x 3, baclofen 10 mg x 3 and sometimes Gaviscon. As I'm a Crohnie, I'm very cautious w food. Is there anything to halt the progression of GERD? I read that this can't be cured and by time things become worse esp. that this is the first time, my GI says I have an incompetent GE junction.
