Hi, I have been diagnosed quite recently with PA. I did lots of reading and understand that PA is basically end stage autoimmune atrophic gastritis. Aside from some gut symptoms when I eat bread (I have been tested negative for celiac but have now given up gluten just to see) I havent really had any symptoms. However I have noticed more symptoms recently, acidy feeling after eating, feeling bloated and general stomach discomfort. So my question is, should people with PA be referred to a gastroenterologist, to see how bad the gastritis is? I am wondering whether to ask my GP. I am also conscious of the fact that you have an increased likelihood of gastric cancer with PA, so does anyone out there with PA get monitored for this?
