Has anyone else with PSA has been diagnosed with GAVE?

At 47 years old I was diagnosed with GAVE (Gastric Antral Vascular Ectasia) resulting from my autoimmune PSA. I was successfully treated with Argon Plasma Coagulation via Endoscopy following years of iron and then blood transfusions. I have similar issues but to a lesser extent with the bladder. Has anyone else these vascular experiences?

    Hi @Smile, I don’t have GAVE, so I just did some reading about it. I know that many with inflammatory arthritis often have iron deficiency, I wonder if there may be some connection? Which one were you diagnosed with first?

    I was first diagnosed with iron deficient anemia.
