No symptoms related to HP

Post by MCC » Mon Dec 12, 2011 4:36 pm

I met my gastro specialist last week. He fermely told me to forget about HP symptoms, there is none! What's that! He said that we have to check about HP just in prevention of ulcere and stomach cancer. Why did I recognized all the symptoms about HP and why did I felt better after un antibiotic treatment? is it really in my head or what? I am very confused.

Hi, there is indeed psychological effect if you have strong believing. We had a human trial a few months ago, giving people live H. pylori to eat. some of the patients were given sugar pill instead (Placebo). this experiment was designed so that both doctors and patients dont know what was ingested. Anyway, one of the patients came back with lots and lots of problem that is very similar to H. pylori infection. you can name the symptoms, and he has them all. so we were quite worried in the beginning and we put him to treatment straight away. But... at the end of the experiment, we found out he was on placebo. we had a big laugh.

so for your case, I think the best way to find out is to do a breath test. the result will be non arguable.

sorry, I am not familiar with "latinex". Is it a brand name? do you know the name of the active ingredient? for example Panadol is a brand name. Paracetamol is the actual active ingredient. Panamax is also a brand name of paracetamol.
