Helicobacter and CA72-4 Test

Post by Laura32 » Tue Apr 24, 2018 8:07 pm


I got Helicobacter IGG result 5.3 and Helicobacter ELISA test result 339 - from blood tests

Also got CA72 -4 Result 45 (normal should be >6)

Stomach camera test showed all fine - only one erosion

Can CA72 - 4 be increased because of Helicobacteri in stomach and blood????

Thank you

Ca72-4 is a cancer marker. I am not familiar with the mechanism. Perhaps there is a reason your doctor order that test on you. Can check with him.

Nevertheless, if your stomach is clean. Only an erosion, there is no need to be worried. Most important is to make sure you have HP eradicated.
