Hello everyone, I was recently diagnosed with BE no dysplasia but positive for intestinal metaplasia And put on a PPI. Iíve been working on improving my diet and I quit vaping. One thing that itís tougher those is drinking I like to have a couple drinks on the weekend but every where online is telling me I have to give that up.

So I guess my questions are, no more alcohol? Iím only 25, what are the chances it progresses to cancer?

Hello,
When I went to a consult at Massachusetts General Hospital, Barrett's division, the guy in charge said no smoking. However, he did say data regarding alcohol were unclear (some studies showed it hurt, some studies showed it helped). Like so many things with this condition, lots of questions, few answers.

Thatís what I had seen as well, I guess with moderation would be the most concise way to go about it :)
