Link between H. pylori and halitosis

Post by ewa » Tue Dec 13, 2016 1:25 am

I have recently found on internet that about 87% of people with halitosis are over-run by H. pylori. I’m 59 years old and constantly suffer bad breath since my teenage years. I look after my dental hygiene very well and my dentist never mentioned that link. Is this correct? Should I get tested for H. pylori and what would be the best test?

I think there is no need to guess. You can get a breath test from local GP easily. The breath test can tell you accurately if you are infected with H. pylori.
