hi
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.

Hi~ I just had an endoscopy yesterday and they took a tissue sample for a biopsy . They told me not to eat/drink for an hour afterwards, but they didn t mention smoking... My question is, is it ok to smoke right after an endoscopy? If not, then how long should I wait? And what happens if I DID smoke after the endoscopy?? Thank you for your time..
