Due to having taken PPIs over a prolonged period of time, I developed fundic polyps. I am now taking carafate and have stopped taking my PPI using otc antacids as needed.
The carafate will not minimize fundic polyps. It will help heal a duodenal ulcer.
Fundic-gland polyps have little, if any, clinical significance, as they generally do not progress to premalignant or malignant lesions.
Your specialist will monitor their growth if necessary.
