I went back to the doctor and she felt another breath test was unnecessary due to the stool test result. The stool test was not the standard stool test done in Australia. It was sent to the Metamatrix labs in the US for a complete DNA stool profile. Personally I am comfortable with this as if DNA was prone to false positives then the legal system would be in a mess. The stool test can be found at http://www.metametrix.com/test-menu/pro ... gi-effects
However, I am a little concerned about the prescription my doctor has written and have posted in the Treatments part of the forum with a question on that.
One other thing, perhaps the reason for the negative on the breath test is that I am eating an extremely low fibre diet to control my symptoms. As it helps so much with my symptoms it seems logical that it would keep numbers of h.pylori down and hence the breath test may not pick them up. As soon as I start adding fibre my symptoms go crazy.
