Hello Again, after some months. I bring a nice update about things going on and would like to get some advice about my particular situation.
As i explained before, i was diagnosed with chronic Antral Gastritis due to H. Pylori and had a triple therapy Antibiotics. Actually it seems i got success. It worked and after the neaw breath test i am "negative for H. pylory infection".
The bad thing is that symtoms has continued and were getting into another direction. I noticed that during pregnancy most of my symtoms as previous gases, strong intestinal cramps have disappeared, as well as boating and itching somehow. My mild acne cleared up and also eczema and itching of hives had fallen heavily during pregnancy. I could eat almost anything and discomfort was quite moderate compared to before treatment. So, i thought it was due to the antibiotics course. Anyway, noticed something very special (food that used to hurt me somehow), stopped doing so) and of course that called my attention. Soon after giving birth, all the symptoms returned in a very fierce way.
I went from being very energy to feel very weak, with weak nails, the hair, especially with gases and swelling of the eyes and hives again (a lot). Also having crampings on the entire body and a kind of arthritis.
All pickles and sausages hurts me. Again I became intolerant to many other foods and the ones mentioned earlier, but in addition, specially vegetables and fruits. I did not know how to explain it. I have only gastritis and was free of H. pylori. It is here when I started researching and came to histamine. (Histaminosis). I did the test for food allergies and skin prick test for both food and molds,atmosphere, etc and everything came negative. Then I knew that there was something else. Through a careful strict diet, I could see that all the food that hurts me has actually has histamine. I do not tolerate anything cured or cultured, or probiotics (without milk or derivatives), or fish or seafood and many other histamine releasers.

I knew from my doctor that digestive enzymes, hydrochloric acid(due to the risk of ulcers) and probiotics should be avoided in orther to cured my gastritis, but its beed a year now since i made the antibiotic treatment, along with ppls. (12 days).

So, my questions are:
1. how can i improve my digestion and cure my chronic gastritis now I know I do not have H. pylori(breath test) and having a confirmed also a disbiosis(urine test). and also knowing that i dont tolerate any (commercial or homemade) Probiotic and that digestive enzymes or hydrochloric acid are not recomended in gastritis cases??
2. What are the gastritis affects on histamine/enzymes/macrobiota in the gut?. Is there any connection between gastritis and histamine intolerance?
3. Why now that I am free from H. pylori gastritis has gotten worse? What are the other forms of gastritis? could it be something autoimmune?
4 Are there other kind of test that i should perform in order to help my situation? is it a vicious circle?
5. What kind of specialist should i visit in order to amplify/clarify my underline problems?
6. Currently I have a slight anemia, so iam taking iron. what kind of other vitamins/minerals are recommended in my situation? and which should avoid?

Iam actually very limitted on food intake.

Thank you very much in advance. i would guys appreciate very much your help.

do you have access to breath or stool test to confirm HP eradication? i am not familiar with urine test. but i think they test for the presence of HP antibodies, which i think it may not be accurate in your case.

have you tried control your symptoms with H2 blocker, eg. ranitidine? it can blocks acid and also act as anti-histamine for your potential allergies.

Hello Helico_Expert!
Well, yes. The breath test was done one month ago and it came back negative. The H. Pylori infection diagnose was done with an endoscopy and a stool test. Endoscopy also showed the Antral chronic Gastritis.
I did not continue ppls after antibiotic treatment because i was pregnant. Anyway, my doctor did not suggested it.

Could you please give some advice on the previous posts questions?
An also, is there a connection between Gastritis and Histamin disorders/intolerances?
When this kind of gastritis is present, the stomach acid remains normal or is lower or higher?

Thanks in advance!

your stomach symptoms may be due to your pregnancy. H2 blocker is category B drug, you can take it when needed.

can "histamine disorder" cause gastritis symptoms? maybe. i am not too sure.
"acid level" caused by "histamine disorder"? again, i am not too sure.

i have not specifically deal with "allergies" and gastritis symptom before. I'll ask Prof Marshall next time i see him.

Hello Again Helico_expert! I would appreciate to clarify the following doubts.

Iam just wondering if my new intolerances to food is due to the gastritis. Basically, i started developing food intolerances with no only histamine-rich food, but also a lot of different food groups like cereals, grains and fruits. After eating certain food, i start having hives, gas,rash and general disconfort. It seems like iam unable to digest them properly. Allergy blood test igE mediated came back negative, also prick and path tests.

1. Could you please to clarify me if there is a connection between gastritis and food intolerances, and/or gastritis and lack of enzymes and or malapsorption/absortion?o cure
2. What should it be the right diet in order to heal gastritis?
3. Could gastritis also be triggered/developed due to hidden food intolerances and/or infections (fungical or bacterial) other than h.pylori?

Thank you very much in advance!

ah... this is not only a gray area. in fact, it's almost white. meaning very little is known why people suffer from dyspepsia other than H. pylori infection.

Some people try control with proton pump inhibitor; some try probiotics; some try changing diet; and some go to the extend and try fecal transplant.

So, in my opinion, if your endoscopy showed that you do not have ulcer or cancer, and you are free of H. pylori, then at least your stomach is one thing less to worry about.

In addition, some people does take longer time to heal after eradication of H. pylori. So maybe you can try and wait a while and see how it goes. Also perhaps your intestine microbiome is disturbed during the antibiotic treatment. Perhaps you can try some probiotics or mint tea to see if they work in calming your symptoms.
