What are the odds that the urea breath test can produce a false negative. Yesterday I had woken up smelling the dreaded ammonia smell that I could smell everyday prior to having been cured and also I’m feeling nauseous again but no pain as Ive felt before.

If you follow the instruction, the odds of UBT providing false negative is very low.

The ammonia smell could come from other bacteria. If you are in doubt, you can always get another UBT to give you a peaceful mind.

I have a follow up appointment with my gastroenterologist in about a month. I’m still concerned about the possibility that I may still have h pylori present and will ask about another breath test but I’m also looking for other tests I could possibly ask him to do. I’m still losing muscle mass all over my body which leads me to believe that it has something to do with how my body is absorbing what I eat. I read that ammonia produced by the bacteria could effect the ph of our stomach acid. Is that true? And if so what kind of test could I take to ensure what ph my stomach acid is at? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The ammonia smell is still present from time to time so I’m afraid.

During the endoscopy, you can ask your doctor to get some stomach juice out to test for pH.

You can also do stool test, for both parasite and H. pylori, if you want to.

You can also try some probiotics to help your guts microbiota recover.
