H.pylori eradication problems

The cure of Hp usually requires antibiotics. Other things have been tried and have a weaker effect.

Thanks for sharing your story. To be honest, it's hard to treat if you dont know what's causing it. I suppose there is no harm trying the manuka honey and mastic gum. But, I think it is better to talk to a specialist to find out what happened. Perhaps you are allergic to certain food, eg. gluten, lactose, sulfur, etc.

Since I am a specialist of Helicobacter pylori, may I know what test did you do that give you a negative result? did you take any medication 7 days before the test?

Thanks for such a quick response. I took a barium swallow test and everything came back negative (though he said I had one very small dueodenum ulcer but it was nothing serious to be concerned about) I also took a stool sample which came back negative for h.pylori and e.coli, I also took blood and a breath test where I had to blow air into a bag to see if there was any present bacteria and both blood and breath test came back negative. I did not take any medication 7 days before all of these tests were done. After taking all of those tests my doctor pretty much brushed the situation off and said I was fine and healthy (which I know I'm not, just from how I feel on a day to day basis) Some days I feel okay at times but I can't go a full day without my stomach feeling nervous and it's starting to take over my life to be honest! I'm active and healthy but that still doesn't erase all the symptoms, I think I might just try the Manuka honey.. I can't feel much worse right? :P

I your doctor did a thorough check for the presence of H. pylori and it's truly not there. Another reason for duodenal ulcer is because of NSAIDs. Have you been taking ibuprofen or aspirin or related pain killers? I know some people are taking them in small dose to prevent heart diseases and stroke.

I rarely ever take ibuprofen or painkillers, the only time I ever take it is for a bad migraine which is very rare. Honestly can't even remember the last time I took one.

Your case will fall into the mystery special case. Non-H. pylori and non-NSAIDs doudenal ulcer case. Your doctor interested in finding out why? like... send your biopsy to certain research institute?

I have been on 3 different regimines of antibiotics so far and still test positive for hpylori with a breath test.Ive been trying to get rid of it for months so I can be cleared for bariatric surgery.My surgeon sent me to a gastric dr after the 2nd failure of tx.I had an endoscope with biopsies showing I still had it.The surgeon said they hadnt seen anyone who hadnt cleared the bacteria with the 2nd therapy.Then I had to go to an infectious disease dr who put me on the 3rd therapy.Im so tired of this Im ready to give up!I dont have symptoms I never have.What is wrong thats the drs cant give me something strong enough to get rid of it?Why wouldnt they test me to see which antibiotics would work best?The treatment is worse than the bacteria.Does anyone have a decent idea about getting rid of this?

what treatments have you had previously? perhaps we can see what would be the problem of your treatments.
