  • Ulcers: Duodenal and Gastric
    Ulcers of the duodenum and stomach are called peptic ulcers. H.pylori causes most ulcers; other causes are aspirin and arthritis type drugs (NSAIDS). Ulcers can also be in the oesophagus but these are not caused by H.pylori.

  • Stomach cancer and lymphoma
    After many years of H.pylori infection a cancer can develop in the stomach. This is particularly common in Latin America and Asia (esp. Japan). It is believed that lifelong inflammation of the stomach lining causes low acidity which then allows carcinogens to be active in the stomach. These then cause stem cells (part of the healing process) to mutate and become cancer cells.

  • Dyspepsia
    This is when you feel like an ulcer is present but no ulcer is found. It can be acid reflux (heartburn) or dyspepsia (bloating, nausea, stomach swelling, fullness, etc.). The cause and cure are often hard to find, and in many cases no cause is found.

  • Wierd Symptoms and Syndromes
    Who knows, maybe H.pylori causes diseases outside the stomach. Cardiovascular disease, skin problems, migraine, autoimmune disease and nurologic disease have been suggested (to name a few). Keep on the lookout and we await proof.
