Hello doctor,

I was diagnosed with antral gastritis, lots of acid in stomach and reflux. Problems started after I took some medicines. Since then I am always hungry. I eat more than before the problem started, but still I feel hungry. I am also suffering from excessive hair loss. Why am I always hungry? What treatment do you suggest?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Excessive hunger is good for you as your weight is normal and it is also good for stomach.
  • Just rule out diabetes by doing fasting blood sugar (FBS).
  • Hair loss is not related to antral gastritis. Please consult a dermatologist for further physical evaluation.

The Probable causes:

Antral gastritis

Investigations to be done:

1. Complete blood count (CBC).
2. Liver function tests (LFT)
3. Fasting blood sugar (FBS).
4. Thyroid functions.

Differential diagnosis:

Diabetes.

Preventive measures:

Avoid spicy food.

Regarding follow up:

Revert back after 15 days with the test reports to a medical gastroenterologist online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/medical-gastroenterologist

 

Hello doctor,

I asked before for antral gastritis. I am still always hungry and hair is still falling out. My thyroid is fine and blood sugar too. I started taking medicines which caused gastritis and after three months I was anemic, had hair loss and felt too much hungry too much. I felt my body is not absorbing well, and wants more food. Can gastritis cause vitamin deficiency, anemia and malabsorbtion? I do not take those medicines any more for over a year but all the problems are still there.
