Thank you for posting in your query.

What I gather from your question is that you have 2 issues at hand.
1. Non-Alcoholic Steato-Hepatitis (NASH)
2. Acid peptic disease

As your doctor suggested Pantoprazole which is a proton pump inhibitor and Cintapro which is a prokinetic drug would definitely help you to reduce your gastritis symptoms. I presume you have undergone an Endoscopy which revealed the 2 erosions you speak of. It would also be good to get treated for H.pylori infection if it has been found to be present when you got your endoscopy done.

You need to take care of your diet when suffering from acid peptic disease.
Ensure that you take lots of water.
Avoid spicy food.
Take at least 5-6 portions of vegetables or fruits every day.
Try to get atleast 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep in the night.
Avoid late nights.
Stop smoking and alcohol if you do.
XXXXXXX is a disease which can progress to cirrhosis unless taken care of.
Ursodeoxycholic acid is known to benefit people suffering from XXXXXXX Your doctor would be able to help you with the dosage and the requirement of the same.
Weight loss plays an important role in the management of XXXXXXX
A regular 30 mins of aerobic exercise would help you.
Restriction of fatty food is a must.
Metadoxine is a hepatic protector which can be of value.

My suggestion,
1. Check your weight and height and work towards achieveing a healthy BMI.
2. Try to avoid stress, long nights, smoking.
3. Say no to spicy and oily food.
4. Exercise as a routine and eat a balanced diet and regularly.
5. Drink plenty of water.
6. Get you bloods checked annually especially your lipid profile, liver and kidney functions.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Thank you for the follow up question

Yes, you can take both Pantoprazole and Cintapro atleast 15 mins before food.
Vidoliv can be taken any time. It does have liver protective action but is mostly prescribed in Alcoholic fatty liver

As suggested before, exercise would be very beneficial in your case. So include them to your lifestyle.

Your blood reports are marginally high and not alarming. Your disease can be kept very well in control with good life style modification and yearly check ups

Hope I answered all your questions. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wish you Good Health.
