Can h. pylori infection affect child's height

Post by ivan_m »

I stumbled upon some studies that claim a child's height may be delayed due to h. pylori. Here is the main article that take a look into such studies: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2975089/ Please scroll down to "GROWTH RETARDATION".

5 studies can't find connection; 8 can find a relation - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articl ... /table/T3/

I think most of them failed to control for socioeconomic status though.

What do you think? Can this justify treating asymptomatic children in the developed world besides the risk of stomach issues later in life?

I find it hard to believe that HP has impact on children’s height.
