H Pylori Ig A Positive
H. pylori infection: .. which causes gastritis with symptoms of early satiety, abdominal pain, heartburn. If you are symptomatic, then you will need the treatment. If you are not symptomatic or have responded to treatment already, then your test result indicates ongoing antibody production (normal immune response to previous infection) and no treatment is required. Good luck! ...Read more
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

Chronic gastritis; chronic duodenitis, hyperemic gastric mucosa; positive helicob. Pylori stool test. Do i need treatment for helicobacter pylori?
Erosive gastritis. h.pylori blood test positive, breath test positive, stool antigen test negative, biopsy negative. what to do ?
Treat it: The positive H. pylori antibody test is not a reliable indicator of current infection. The gold standard for H. pylori treatment is the gastric biopsy, and this is negative in this patient. However, I am impressed by the positive breath test and erosive gastritis. I would have expected stool antigen to be positive, as it mirrors the breath test. Given the discrepant results, treat the patient. ...Read more
No: A CBC or complete blood count checks white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelet counts. There is a serologic test for h pylori which can be used to screen for infection, but can not be used after treatment as it can remain positive. A stool test, breath test, or biopsy can be used to check for eradication after treatment. ...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

Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?
Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

No: Majority of people will lose their igg positivity after infection has been eradicated. This may take up to a year or more. However, some people will not and maybe never lose their igg and may need a different test to determine their h. Pylori status. ...Read more
Epigastric pain, neg H pylori but pos FOBT. Colonoscopy normal but endoscopy showed gastritis. Cause of gastritis?
Causes of gastritis: The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflamed stomach." The term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, H.pylori infection, atrophic & hypersecretory problems. Start with acid blockers, diet modification, avoid alcohol/tobacco. ...Read more
blood test IGG 17.95 positive and IGM 8.50 negative. stool test was negative. do I infect with h.pylori?
Past infection: These results suggest past infection with H. pylori. The blood test can remain positive for years after past infection even if you were treated. The stool test and urea breath test can better detect current infection. The gold standard for testing is a biopsy during endoscopy. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/007501.htm ...Read more
