Re: Low iron stores (Ferritin deficiency) without anemia, along with H Pylori infection

I got the result back, it is negative. However it does not state borderline negative or low negative........just says negative (this was a stool test).

Re: Low iron stores (Ferritin deficiency) without anemia, along with H Pylori infection

Just for my peace of mind, I went for a stool test today. But I think I might have made a mistake. I took Famotidine 30 mg yesterday, and I just read on this forum that you should stop h2 blocker 24 hrs before the stool/breath test. Does this mean I should re-test?

Re: Low iron stores (Ferritin deficiency) without anemia, along with H Pylori infection

I had an endoscopy done in August that showed H Pylori negative. Should i still get a stool or breath test done to make sure it is eradicated? Also I still feel loss of appetite and not any hunger pangs. I eat more by the clock, but am able to eat a full meal once i start eating. Also have brain num...

Re: Low iron stores (Ferritin deficiency) without anemia, along with H Pylori infection

Thanks @ Helico_expert. Also I stopped PPI about 3 weeks back, and now experience chest discomfort/pain regularly after eating. Is this acid reflux? I never had this problem before, so can this happen after H Pylori eradication i.e. someone who never had acid reflux before, getting it after H-Pylori...

Re: Low iron stores (Ferritin deficiency) without anemia, along with H Pylori infection

Yes, my Ferritin is low but normal Hemoglobin.
I also underwent a colonoscopy and it was okay.
Is this common in H Pylori patients?

Re: Low iron stores (Ferritin deficiency) without anemia, along with H Pylori infection

Hi @ Helico_expert, a quick clarification - when you say "low iron" did you mean low Hemoglobin (Hgb) levels or are you talking about low Ferritin levels? Have you seen cases where it is low Ferritin but normal Hemoglobin levels? Thanks.

Has anybody experienced low iron stores i.e. Ferritin deficiency, without anemia (i.e. normal Hemoglobin levels) along with H-Pylori infection? Is it normal to have low iron stores i.e. Ferritin deficiency along with H-Pylori infection? If so, how long does it take to get your Ferritin levels back u...

Re: Haven't healed after weeks of treatment

Thanks @ Helico_expert. No reflux these days, but to begin with (when my symptoms started) I did not have too bad reflux.......my symptoms were extreme nausea, foggy head, complete loss of appetite, and weight loss. I 'll probably stop Omeprazole or switch to Rabeprazole shortly. Regrading foggy hea...
