Re: Risk of Gastric cancer from PPIs?

I just develop the scoring system based on what I know. there is no publication and so it cannot be translated to percentage. You most probably got the asian strain when you are young. but most importantly is the endoscopy and histology report. Gastric cancer doesnt happen over night. It will take ...

Re: Risk of Gastric cancer from PPIs?

the factors that causes cancer include 1. your genetics 2. your diet 3. H. pylori not all H. pylori causes gastric cancer. There are many types of H. pylori out there. It seems like the Asian strain is extremely carcinogenic. 50% of the world's gastric cancer is in China, Japan, Korea, and Mongolia...

Re: Risk of Gastric cancer from PPIs?

The title is a bit misleading. If you read the data carefully, you can see that people without H pylori, there is little gastric cancer from patients who take long term PPI. For patients with H pylori infection, the gastric cancer rate is already higher than those that are not infected. So this stu...

Re: Upcoming H.Pylori treatment #7 - question on serum ferritin and sensitivity testing

I dont think H. pylori is related to RDW. But H. pylori is known to have association with low iron and B12. active or chronic gastritis is based on the particular immune cells gathering. sometimes, they can be missed depending on the biopsy taken. I think one antibiotic resistance testing is good e...

Re: Upcoming H.Pylori treatment #7 - question on serum ferritin and sensitivity testing

I will discuss your treatment recommendation with my doctor but since there is no furazolidone, that particular treatment combination will be unavailable to me. However, my questions are: Hi, - My last blood test showed normal iron levels but my serum ferritin was low (10) and RDW elevated (slightly...

Re: Upcoming H.Pylori treatment #7 - question on serum ferritin and sensitivity testing

i am not sure if this duo therapy will work for you. I think you'll have higher chance with Rabeprazole 20 mg TID Bismuth 220mg QID Amoxicillin 1g TID Furazolidone 100 mg TID I think I encountered this issue before in discussion, that furazolidone is not available in the US. The FDA banned this dru...

Re: Upcoming H.Pylori treatment #7 - question on serum ferritin and sensitivity testing

How do you know you are still infected with H. pylori? your last endoscopy showed inactive gastritis. usually that means no more HP. I assume this is from a histology examination. otherwise, visual endoscopy examination is not good enough. I had a breath test done 6 weeks after my last treatment, a...

If treatment fails I will need to redo it all over again. Questions I have are: - My last blood test showed normal iron levels b...
