Re: Can PPIs suppress H Pylori symptoms?

I have tested positive for H Pylori, after having experienced bloating and dyspepsia, as well as some dizziness and lightheadedness and occasional hot flushes while eating. Normally, the condition was worse in the morning than in the evening and worse before meals rather than after. A hiatus hernia...

Re: false negative stool test and positive biopsy

Yes I think it is preferable she takes another test to confirm. May I ask: what is the scientific opinion for the DNA stool test for HP? Also if I want to stop my nexium 20mg once daily,what is the equivalent dose to it from H2 blocker? I need to replace my ppi with something that has the same effec...

Re: false negative stool test and positive biopsy

Great info. I never thought of it that way. I had the notion of overgrowth HP to make all this mess in our digestive system. I have an interesting input. I have a relative who was diagnosed with HP and got treated with antibiotics. She was retested then via blood test and to my surprise she got a ne...

Re: false negative stool test and positive biopsy

One more question please:

If H Pylori was detected through a biopsy does that necessarily mean it's an overgrowth or it just says that h pylori is present?

Re: Best place for stool test-see website

So did you get relief from your symptoms after this round of antibiotics?
Are you back to normal?

Re: false negative stool test and positive biopsy

Aha very interesting. I read around this forum and it seems that all the tests no matter how sensitive have a possibility of failure which is something very frustrating as it keeps us within the circle of chasing H Pylori to find it and if we fail we still suspect it because of the constant symptoms...

Re: false negative stool test and positive biopsy

Great info. Thanks.

So you mean to say that the biopsy results through histology may not be accurate?

Just in case I couldn't perform the UBT would a multiple stool test do the job?

Is there any way to order a UBT with a drink kit through the internet?

The endoscopy showed "mild gastritis."

Re: false negative stool test and positive biopsy

Thanks for the reply and info. The biopsy was tested through HISTOLOGY. I forgot to mention as well that the first stool test I took I had iron injection two or three days before so I don't know if this affects the result of the stool test. So how could I consider my symptoms coming back? Especially...

I searched the net a lot and suspected H Pylori and requested for stool test bu...
