The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 42-year-old female asked:
H pylori : An elevated H pylori IGG titer is indicative of prior exposure to Helicobacteria pylori, a bacterial pathogen which can infect the stomach and is associated with heartburn, ulceration and, in some instances, stomach cancer. Whilst not diagnostic, an elevated IGG titer often indicates the presence of this bacteria as a pathogen. Stool antigen testing and breath testing are other diagnostic tools.
A 35-year-old female asked:
Contraception: No, there is no need for you to use back up unless you miss 3 or more consecutive days of contraception. I recommend taking your next dosage at the usual time and resume your nightly schedule thereafter.
A 19-year-old female asked:
Gas: What was your last meal? Many people struggle with an excess of fermentable carbohydrate, which causes a lot of gas and bloating. If you havw chronic indigestion and or gas, you may want to consider a low FODMAP diet. You can find an example of this diet on many websites.
