Quick question..revived Lab orders today for retest 30 days after completion of meds..just wondering as it states
Diagnosis: Helocobactor pylori infection 041.86 - B96.81
Do those numbers represent the amount of bacteria in the stomach? Or just medical codes? Thank you.

I have no idea what those number means. Usually C14 has a dpm; C13 has a %. I think it is best you find out from the GP or directly from the diagnostic laboratory.
