Endoscopy shows gastritis and GERD, no constipation. Other tests?

im 34 year old male .ive been to my gastroenterologist and he ordered or performed the necessary tests (blood tests liver and pancreas enzyme tests, colonoscopy , endoscopy with biopsies, ct scan of abdomin and pelvis, gallbladder ultrasound, and hida scan) all normal except for endoscopy which showed mild gastritis and gerd. maybe slight ibs. the thing about the ibs part that throws me is i am very regular. i go once a day in the morning like 98% of the time. im not constipated nor do i have diareah. sometimes my stool floats but then slowly sinks. is it easy to tell the difference between stools that float because of gas and those because of fat? what else is there to have in the form of tests? i feel like ive done it all. i have no history of gastric cancer, not anemic, never had h pylori or polyps in stomach or colon. Also i recently started to put the weight ive lost back on. i assume this is a good sign. I worry about my pancreas. .

It is nice to know you are getting back to shape. You have completed almost all the investigations. Pancreatitis generally affects people who have alcohol addiction, obesity, gall stones, take fatty food, have LFT positive, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, etc. Your investigation reports are normal. You need not worry.

You should try to maintain a healthy body weight, reduce on fats and lipids, maintain normal triglyceride levels. Take food rich in antioxidants. Eat fruits, veggies, berries, whole wheat and cereals. Quit any kind of addiction like alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, etc. Exercise and eat home made substantial nutritious food. Stay tension free, keep well hydrated with juice, soup, water. Sleep well.

You should have health check up ( once in six months ) and if you feel your symptoms are not under control. Have a nice day, take care.
