How do you catch Hp? From your mother when she kisses you? From brothers and sisters as a small child? From sexual partners as adults (kissing)? From dirty water (fecal contamination)? From animals? Who knows???

Prevention

Post by arepa »

I am new to this forum. Decided to post a question.

I was diagnosed with H. Pylori in August 2010 after a scope procedure. I have suffered from diarrhea and chronic stomach (intestinal) discomfort for years. I also had a small ulcer around 1985 that was cured. Still, I have experienced gas and indigestion since then. I attributed these symptoms to the fact that I travel extensively and have lived for 8 years in Central and South America and for 4 years in Mainland China. I have traveled to every continent except Antarctica. I have even been to Perth, Australia where H. Pylori was reportedly discovered! Although we do our best to make sure our food and water are clean, we are never certain. Therefore, I thought my stomach issues were just caused by giardia or food poisoning. I have been treated several times for that over the years with temporary relief.

I was treated for H. Pylori in August, 2010 and saw a drastic improvement. I assumed I had defeated this critter. However, after being re-tested, I have not defeated it yet. So I am currently on my second treatment. I am currently living in the US, but plan to return to East Asia this fall for about two years.

My question is are there further precautions I can take while living overseas to prevent re-contracting this? We only drink bottled water. We try to eat in better restaurants, but these are often suspect. There is not much we can do to control every variable. I should add that no other family member has been diagnosed with H. Pylori, although they sometimes have similar symptoms. However, I am the only one who has severe issues. I work with farmers overseas and often travel to remote, very poor areas outside the city. The food there is especially suspect, but unavoidable due to availability and cultural expectations. I always drink bottled water or tea made with boiled water served to me by my hosts. However, the food I am served is out of my control.

Thanks for your advice. When I learned that this can lead to stomach cancer, and I realized I may not be able to avoid reinfection, it was pretty disconcerting.

Hi, sorry for the very late reply. For your information, re-infection from H. pylori is possible but not common. H. pylori almost cannot survive in any other environment but the human stomach. your reoccurance of H. pylori probably because you didnt get it totally wipe out in your previous treatment. it probably also has resistance to normal treatment. another common source of infection is from family members where you share food. so, to answer your question, perhaps you can get your family to have H. pylori checked and all treated. also, try avoid sharing food.

Make sure your second treatment is different from your first one. Only amoxicillin and bismuth can be repeated.
