Omeprazole. So it would have been equivalent to 20mg rabeprazole 3x/day
Yes, that is the typical formulation for the Pylera “quadruple therapy” but uses omeprazole instead. That was the 3rd eradication combination treatment I had (Aug 2018) which failed.Helico_expert wrote: ↑Tue Nov 26, 2019 9:45 amYou've got the most resistant strain I have ever encountered.Ciprofloxacin: >2
Clarithroymycin: >0.5 Resistant
But your Metronidazole resistance is not too bad. Have you tried Rabeprazole + Bismuth + Tetracycline + Metronidazole combination?
Here is the link to the article I encountered: https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/7849/b ... d262cb.pdfHelico_expert wrote: ↑Tue Nov 26, 2019 9:45 ami have not come across articles that state correlation between RDW and intestinal metaplasia. But I think if it is significant, it would be mentioned in the treatment consensus as a marker.high RDW with H. Pylori has some correlation to intestinal metaplasia
Also, is there a predisposition for H. Pylori turning into more antibiotic-resistant and/or pathogenic versions with certain people depending on blood type? I’m AB+ so wondering if this has had any cause in being unable to eradicate this bug: https://bmccancer.biomedcentral.com/art ... 019-5355-4
I had my endoscopy and am awaiting results. It appears after all these treatments much of the gastritis has resolved but looks like inflammation now only at the fundus. Why does the H. Pylori seem to keep migrating upward after failed eradication treatments?
