Re: Vitamin D deficiency = Treatment failures?

Would you recommend I wait for Vonoprazan to become available in the US (might not be for at least another year) or to try another treatment after my Vitamin D levels are higher? I was supposed to go for another endoscopy for updated sensitivity test, and then would have to undergo amoxicillin desen...

Re: Vitamin D deficiency = Treatment failures?

hmm... you have asked a question that I do not have an answer. However, from experience and literature, many iron deficient patients have their iron level restored after HP eradication. It seems then the mechanism of H.Pylori affecting iron absorption in turn causing Vitamin D deficiency in turn ca...

Re: Vitamin D deficiency = Treatment failures?

looks like you have tried everything. perhaps you want to wait for the launch of the new PPI, vonoprazan? it's a very powerful PPI. There are some articles that showed great cure rate from Vonoprazan and Amoxicillin (dual drug therapy). I would love to try that - do you have any idea when it might ...

I am also not sure if taking Vit D supplement will actually increase the Vit D level. I believe it is more to do with absorption. If you cannot absorb the Vit D, then it doesnt matter how much you took.
Does H. Pylori interfere with Vitamin D absorption?

Re: Vitamin D deficiency = Treatment failures?

I am actually waiting for Prof. Marshall to respond to your question. anyway, while waiting, there are quite a few scientific articles out there discussing the possibility of deficiency of Vit D and its association with poorer cure rate. However, this has not been a factor discussed in any guidelin...

Re: Vitamin D deficiency = Treatment failures?

Dear Helico expert, I just got my Vit D lab result back and as suspected I am definitely deficient. My level was 15.2 (range 32-100) and this was after I had taken a 10,000 IU Vitamin D3 supplement the week before, so I suspect my level may have been even lower before that. I am awaiting to hear bac...

Vitamin D deficiency = Treatment failures?

Dear Helico Expert, Can you please weigh in on this article I have recently found: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6308038/ A couple of years ago I had low levels of Vitamin D, supplemented for a little while then stopped. There was no followup to ascertain levels after supplementation....

Re: Bloating

No, I am the “difficult case” that failed 6 treatments so H. Pylori is still not eradicated yet. I was scheduled for re-doing endoscopy for antibiotics sensitivity on the 31st of December but I had a stupid accident on 29th of December and broke two vertebrae in a fall. So it was recommended that I ...
