H Pylori Causes Gerd
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
Yes, it can.: H. Pylori is a type of bacteria that likes to grow on the inside of the stomach. This bacteria causes irritation of the stomach wall lining. The body tries to heal, but a vicious cycle of irritation and healing gets started. Over time, the regenerating stomach lining cells become disorganized in their growth which can (not always) lead to cancer growth. H. Pylori therapy can reduce cancer risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: Globus sensation can be caused by several different possibilities. Gastroesophageal reflux is a common cause , however, h pylori gastritis is not. I would treat the gerd aggressively and see if the globus sensation improves. I recommend that patients undergo an egd (stomach scope) to rule out any underlying conditions such as a peptic ulcer, esophagitis or hiatal hernia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Helicobacter pylori does not kill directly, but it is culprit for a large percentage of stomach cancers and other tumors. The ulcers that it causes still kill the unwary as well. Best to have the nasty little creatures eradicated as required -- which thankfully we can now do! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, unsure stat: Chronic h. Pylori infection/gastritis can cause a type of gastric tumor called malt--mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, but the incidence is not known. Long term gastritis by other causes also increase risk of gastric cancer, just as in folks with chronic reflux causing esophagitis/barrett's esophagus etc.. Which increases cancer risks. So, follow up with doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Breaking it down...: Focal = a spot, not all over. Chronic = constant, not once-in-a-while. Peptic-type = damaged by exposure to stomach acid. Duodenitis = inflammation/damage of duodenum, the very beginning of the small intestine that actually connects to the end of your stomach. H. Pylori negative = it was not associated with a bacterial infection that is well known to cause ulcers. Hope that is helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It will be hard to p: Metaplasia can be caused by any number of irritants. In the duodenum, it could be related to bile exposure, acid exposure and unknown causes. It will be very hard to pin point the cause. But you already know it is there, so better monitor it regularly through your gastroenterologist's supervision. ...Read more

See below: The test that i think of for breath testing is for helicobacter pylori, which is a bacterial infection of the stomach that can cause gastritis or stomach ulcers. This test is accurate and currently seems to be preferred over blood testing for h. Pylori. There have been some breath testing for intestinal bacterial overgrowth problems, but I do not know if it is performed much anymore. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
