Re: Thai patient, air bubble caught in her throat, catching Hp

IBS is indeed a problem to many and there is still no clue what's causing it. At the moment researchers are looking into the microbiome of the guts, hoping to figure out if it is the unbalanced microbiome that's causing the problem. Nevertheless, I dont think H. pylori causes IBS. There are many peo...

Re: I recovered

Re: H pylori, moderate gastritis

unfortunately the PCR test for any antibiotic resistance is not very accurate at the moment. talk to your gastroenterologist to find out if he has access to a laboratory that can do bacteria culture. H. pylori can never become resistant to Amox and Bismuth. Therefore you can always get a combination...

Re: Please can you help - I am confused and worried

H. pylori doesnt cause diarrhea. If I remember Prof. Marshall self experimental experience, once you are infected, you will vomit for a few days, then a week later you'll feel nothing. you'll develop bad breath and the gradually some very mild gastritis symptom. The best way to diagnose H. pylori is...

Re: Please can you help - I am confused and worried

Hi Chris, First of all, HP is usually acquired when you are young. So you might not have the Egypt strain, if you did not grow up in Egypt. Of course, you may catch it from your partner in your adulthood. But the chance is much lower assuming that you and your partner practice good hygiene. Metronid...

Re: Please can you help - I am confused and worried

unfortunately antibiotics treatment is the only scientific way to get rid of H. pylori to date.

you can look for a good specialist that has access to H. pylori culture. by finding out what your HP is resistant and sensitive to, you can reduce the use useless antibiotics.

Re: symptoms just came back, worried about them, need help

if your recent endoscopy did not show any abnormality, there is no need for another endoscope examination. just continue your rabeprazole for a few more days and see if the problem calms down.

Re: symptoms just came back, worried about them, need help

i have seen similar case where certain food triggered a HP-like gastric symptoms. especially when they only recently recovered from the gastric symptoms. People i know tried to avoid those food whenever they can. For your case, you can probably take some ranitidine to ease up the symptoms.

First time I learnt about Matula tea. Did a few search and found a few forums discussing about it. There are lots of positive and negative feedback on this product. Therefore, i think this product only works for a particular group of people. according to other forums, it's not cheap to try. What I d...

Re: Has anyone ever went through this after hpylori antibiotic.

many bacteria has urease and is able to give false positive result. However, 1500 dpm is pretty high. no other bacteria is able to give such high reading. The antibiotics dont make H. pylori nastier. It only makes them survive better. As long as they are in your stomach, they continue to kill your s...
