Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Nonprofit support and advocacy groups bring together patients, families, medical professionals, and researchers. These groups often raise awareness, provide support, and develop patient-centered information. Many are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct people to research, resources, and services. Many groups also have experts who serve as medical advisors. Visit their website or contact them to learn about the services they offer.

My best friend has a bad case of gastritis. The H. pylori tests are negative. The condition is now so bad it is affecting her nerves in her neck, she has great pain whenever she eats, has a constant "fuzzy" feeling in her head, and takes Omeprazole but it has no effect. She has had an endoscopy which gave the diagnosis of atrophic gastritis. Are there any dietetic options she can use to ease this? Any surgical options to cure it? Any other drugs available? See answer
