Once someone has progressed to gastric intestinal metaplasia, does a urea breath test still detect H pylori?

Once someone has progressed to gastric intestinal metaplasia, does a urea breath test still detect H pylori?

Yes: The urea breath test is a rapid method to identify infections by Helicobacter pylori, implicated in gastritis, gastric ulcer, and eventual malignancy based upon the ability of H. pylori to convert urea to ammonia and carbon dioxide. The test measures active H. pylori infection. If antibiotics are depressing the amount of H. pylori present, or the stomach conditions are less acidic than normal, the amount of urease present will be lessened. In many untreated cases of malignancy the H.pylori levels are still relatively high with early malignancy, ...Read more

When a diaphragmatic hernia occurs, some of the abdominal contents, such as liver, intestines, and stomach come into chest. How then does baby breathe when born?

When a diaphragmatic hernia occurs, some of the abdominal contents, such as liver, intestines, and stomach come into chest. How then does baby breathe when born?

Depends: If the infant went through a complete pregnancy before the herniation, initial stabilization & repair can have a great outcome (normal lung development & few lung problems after infancy). If herniation occurred during pregnancy, outcome depends on how bad it impaired lung development. Early recognition at birth with placement of a stomach tube & breathing tube may give baby a chance. ...Read more

Why are there bowel movements during final stages pregnancy and the causes of shortness of breathe even though iron supplements have been prescribed?

Both normal: It's not that late pregnancy causes bowel movements: it's that when you "push" (to get the baby out), you push your bm too-so you want to be empty to avoid an accident. Shortness of breath is normal because your large uterus is interfering with the full expansion of your lungs. It will get all better in roughly 10 weeks! ...Read more

DM can make you tired all day & is high risk for Pancreatitis. Patients w Blood sugars >250 do suffer from exhaustion. Do you get 7 hrs of sleep each night?
