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

i would say 50% of those extreme case works. we are not entirely sure why.

How long to wait? perhaps 6 months? I dont know. This is uncharted territory.

Re: Questions about H.Pylori, Testing, Diet, Intestinal Metaplasia and Hiatal Hernia

hmmm... how much esomeprazole dose are you taking? you may want to ask your doctor about increasing the dose. unfortunately everyone react differently. Some people feel great immediately during and after the treatment. Some people will remain symptomatic for weeks, months or even years. The younger ...

Re: Tested Positive, I think. Need Expert advice please.

There is specific test for H. pylori antibody in blood test. If you did not see that in the report, your doctor probably did not order it. It's not expensive, should have included.

You can delay the treatment 2 months later.

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

every few years, we will encounter 1 case like yours. Super resistant H. pylori and no antibiotics can kill it. In desperation, we would admit that patient to hospital for 10 days and get the nurse to give 5 antibiotics + PPI by intravenous. But for your case, if your endoscopy is not too bad, then ...

Re: Tested Positive, I think. Need Expert advice please.

I agree with your 2nd doctor that you should not take treatment unless it's certain that you have H. pylori. Besides, the stool color that you described, doesnt sound like H. pylori. It's probably more to do with IBS. Perhaps you should also check with a dietitian to find out if you any food allergi...

Otherwise, you can try ciprofloxacin if possible, you can also ask your doctor to prescribe yo...

Re: Help: 2nd Treatment also failed, scared of taking antibiotics

It is actually the inflammation that is doing you the harm. So, even if H. pylori is in low number, the inflammation will not go away and continue causing damage to your stomach lining. If your doctor said that there is no inflammation and you indeed have H. pylori, perhaps you need to check your im...

Gosh.. you really have tried everything. I think you need to find a laboratory that have access to HP culture to do antibiotic susceptibility testing.

Re: Worried about Atrophic gatritis due to long term h pylori !

You can catch H. pylori in your adulthood, but harder and rarer. It is because as an adult, we assume you are more hygienic: You brushes your teeth once or twice a day, you wash your hands after toilet, and you seldom share food with other people. H. pylori can be transmitted via kissing. However, i...

H. pylori is associated with Iron and B12 deficiency. So eradicating H. pylori can improve your iron and B12 level.

You can start your next treatment anytime from now.

so can you summarise what antibiotics have you had previously?
