No laboratory tests can pinpoint a diagnosis of gastritis.
Often, no tests are necessary.
If your health care provider orders tests, it is probably to rule out certain medical conditions.
If all other possibilities are ruled out, that leaves gastritis as the most likely cause of your symptoms.
A culture of duodenal tissue is done to check for bacteria that may lead to certain illnesses and conditions.
its better you consult a gastroenterologist.
