H Pylori And Gluten Intolerance
Wheat barley rye contains gluten, a protein molecule that in susceptible people can cause reactions and long term illness. There is celiac, the most well known and severe gluten disease.

Depends: Lactose intolerance is mostly a clinical diagnosis--usually leads to GI symptoms after eating foods containing lactose (dairy). Biopsy of the intestine can confirm the diagnosis as well. Celiac disease (gluten sensitivity) can be screened for with blood tests, and the confirmatory test is also a biopsy of the intestine. It's important that these tests be done while you're on a regular diet. ...Read more
Unclear question: I do not understand your question. But microscopic colitis is a specific condition that is most commonly related to medications, though some conditions predispose you to developing it (Celiac may be one). Milk sensitivity? - if you mean lactose intolerance then this is common and separate from Celiac. Everyone that drinks enough milk will have symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Celiac is an allergy: Celiac disease is gluten allergy, a strong allergic reaction to gluten (a protein in grains such as wheat, barley, malted barley, rye, spelt, etc...). Gluten intolerance is not an allergic reaction, but an intolerance of gluten that leads to tummy symptoms such as gassiness, bloating, loose stools, etc... Gluten intolerance does not cause damage to the intestinal lining like celiac disease does. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it a wheat allergy or gluten intolerance? After consuming gluten (5-10 minutes) i get abdominal bloating, gas, dumping and rash on arms.
Could be: See doc; get tested. Start with history, physical exam, and screening blood tests re: celiac sprue. May need endoscopic biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

H pylori gastritis showed in EGD. Pain, nausea, treated 3 x with antibiotics. h p. positive. Is L glutamine and probiotic good to fight inflammation?
Inflammation: Those products won't eradicate inflammation. Specific treatment with three antibiotics and bismuth for 2 weeks is usually successful in eradicating H.Pylori and ppi medications like nexium or protonix treat inflammation. In my opinion probiotics aren't helpful in treating gastritis. ...Read more
Bad GERD even on 300mg ranitidine, prilosec stopped working. Is gerd caused by stomach polyps and gasteroperesis? H pylori 2011. Will get worse?
See GI doctor: Assuming that you are taking your medication correctly(Prilosec 30-60 mins before breakfast) and have followed the dietary precautions, one needs to consider bile reflux as a potential cause. Stomach polyps unless causing obstruction would not lead to GERD but gastroparesis may by slowing down stomach emptying. Sometimes surgery may be needed to correct the problem. ...Read more
Chronic gastritis; chronic duodenitis, hyperemic gastric mucosa; positive helicob. Pylori stool test. Do i need treatment for helicobacter pylori?
Can you explain the differences between celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and wheat or gluten allergy?
Maybe (not) . . .: Everyone now agrees that h pylori is responsible for peptic ulcer disease, including gastric & duodenal ulcers. However, it's not clear that h pylori is responsible for gerd & esophagitis. However, esophagitis is associated w/pud so if we find h pylori, then we tend to treat if you/re symptomatic. The trick in medicine is paying attention to cause & effect studies vs observational ones. It's tough. ...Read more

?which test ?: Testing for celiac varies. There are blood tests, which can show positive with small amounts of gluten intake. (1/10 of a slice of bread)The most dramatic and accepted confirmatory test for celiac disease is a small intestine biopsy. The biopsy test would be most reliable when someone has had a gluten challenge. ...Read more
