Re: dazed and confused

Hi, thanks for sharing your story. As you can see, gastro intestinal is like a whole universe which is still very poorly understood. If H. pylori plays a part in LBD is unknown. However, based on the characteristic of H. pylori, we think it's not possible because of its slow growth rate and fastidio...

Re: After 3 Treatments, HP still shows up on endoscopy test

she can also try amoxicillin + Clarithromycin + metronidazole + rabeprazol.

ask if the pathologist kept the biopsy. see if they can grow the H. pylori and do antibiotic sensitivity test.

Re: Tried all antibiotics available in us..now what?

blood test is useless now. so dont do blood test again.

i suggest you do endoscopy and get the biopsy to culture. then ask for antibiotic sensitivity test to find out exactly what antibiotic should be used. that will save you time trying again and again.

Re: Can you overtreat an ulcer? Or overuse Omeprazole?

the acid in your stomach actually protect you from bacteria growing in the stomach.

perhaps, the PPI has induce unwanted bacteria growth in your stomach. I suggest you do a urea breath test and an endoscopy just to be safe.

however, you need to stop PPI for 2 weeks before the breath test.

Re: After 3 Treatments, HP still shows up on endoscopy test

she probably can try PPI+ amoxicillin + metronidazole. this is one of the common treatments for H. pylori. discuss with your doctor and see if that's suitable.

so, you have her endoscopy report? did she get a biopsy or histology or culture of bacteria?

Re: Son just diagnosed "Please Help"

Is the stool test in your opinion good enough? stool test is reported 95% accurate. similar to other tests such as urea breath test and serology test. however, serology test is not accurate after antibiotic treatment. so, for confirmation of eradication, you'll need either stool test or urea breath ...

Re: H pylori vaccine hitting the market?

the current hot topic is... should we get rid of H. pylori?

there are lots of studies repetitively shown the inverse association of H. pylori and diseases such as asthma, Barrett's esophagus, GORD, and etc.

perhaps, a systematic eradication plan should be looked into.
