Erosive gastritis. h.pylori blood test positive, breath test positive, stool antigen test negative, biopsy negative. what to do ?

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

Hepb surface antigen positive, confirmatory test negative, antibody and core negative, should I worry?

By then you may be hepb antibody and core antibody positive, in which case you are immune. ...Read more

Urine & blood test positive for pregnancy. 2 weeks later urine tst negative. What can be wrong? I'm spotting a little

See below: If the urine test was done correctly and it was negative, the pregnancy may have been lost spontaneously.

Erection troubles: This is a very common problem. And, questions. Remember an erection is more about your head than your body. If you are worrying about this it may make the problem worse. Sometimes the problem is too tight of a condom. Sometimes there needs to be some lube used so that the penetration is easier.
