Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Barret esophagus is a condition in which the lining epithelium of the lower part of esophagus is replaced by intestinal type epithelium. It is usually seen in those people who have long standing gastroesophageal reflux disease. Stomach is divided into various part like fundus,body an d pylorus. The area before the pylorus is called pre-pyloric region of stomach. Chronic gastritis can lead to weight loss. Barret esophagus has been associated with tumor of the lower esophagus as well. So if you have an unexplained weight loss it is right to have an endoscopy to find out any mass lesion or local pathology like Barret esophagitis or gastritis responsible for your weight loss. Weight loss usually is not a very common occurrence with these problems unless person is also suffering from a decrease in appetite due to fear of worsening of symptoms.
