I was diagnosed with chronic inactive gastritis last summer. A mild case although the GI explained some with severe gastritis actually have minor symptoms and then people like me with a mild case really feel lousy a lot of the time. I asked her can you GET RID of gastritis, and she shook her head and said no, it's not likely. I find that hard to believe, though - gastritis means inflammation and it's caused by stress. What I'm wondering is if the stress goes away, won't the gastritis also go away? I don't really need to see the GI until it's colonoscopy time!
