yes. the stomach can be irritated with certain food. I know someone who is HP free who cannot eat chilli. a bit of chilli can make his stomach very uncomfortable and give a mild reflux symptoms.

thank you expert,
doctor already ordered stool for me, but recommended me to take omeprazole for six weeks, then wait for weeks with any medications free,and take the breath test. but i want to take stool test as soon as possible.
I want some suggestions from you, expert. do you think that i need to take stool test very soon or i start to take omeprazole for six weeks and have stool test done after PPI treatment?
thank you

if you can wait, the result will be more accurate. all these tests rely on the amount of bacteria. The longer you leave it, the more they grow in number (if they exist).

Also, stool test can be affected by PPI. so you'll need to stop PPI for at least 2 weeks before testing.

active gastritis usually mean presence of H. pylori. Do update us your breath test result tomorrow.

Hi expert, i already sent my stool specimen to lab, they said that i won't get result until next Tuesday because the person who will test my stool sample is in vacation!!!!!
My question is that can stool sample store in the container for about 5 days without any changes, and also can this affect result?
