How Do You Know If H Pylori Is Gone
100% doesn't exist: Nothing in medicine is 100%. It is very unlikely that a pathologist would miss H. pylori on a biopsy, but they are limited by where the biopsy is taken. Your GI doc has a great understanding of this and will take the biopsy result into consideration. If they still suspect H. pylori after the biopsy read, they will likely think they missed it and repeat.
Infection of stomach: H.Pylori is type of bacteria helicobacter pylori that can cause infection in thestomach, together with acid stomach can cause ulcers. Pts are usually asymtomatic. When being treated with ulcers, this bacteria then get tested. It test is positive, pts are treated with two antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor for 7-14 days.
H. pylori: H. pylori is a bacterial infection of the stomach which can cause acid reflux and gastric ulcers. This infection can cause significant discomfort, but is not particularly dangerous. Two exceptions would be bleeding ulcers or esophageal strictures, condition that can occur with chronic infection. H.pylori is easily diagnosed and treated.

Many causes of ulcer: A stomach ulcer is literally a hole in the stomach lining. H.Pylori bacteria & use of nsaid's are independent but common risk factors, as are age, tobacco use, & prior history of ulceration. Admission to the ICU can result in stress-related ulceration within the first few days of hospitalization. Also, significant burns (curling's ulcer), head trauma (cushing's ulcer), sheering forces, cancer.
Usually Minor: H Pylori is usually minor and easily treatable. It can be associated with Ulcers and some time with stomach pains and/or heartburn. I assume that if you were being tested you were having symptoms, so your Provider will most likely want to treat it. Normally we do not test to see if the infection is gone as long as the symptoms resolve.See 1 more doctor answer
Its now considered: The number one cause of stomach ulcers and bleeding. It can be diagnosed via biopsy of your stomach or blood work. Treatment involves roughly a two week course of three agents that include a combination of antibiotics and antacids.
Ulcers: H. Pylori is connected with damage to the stomach and duodenal mucus layer and ulcers as a result. You can be tested by your doctor. A breath test is preferred to see if you have a current infection. A blood test will only tell if you have ever had it even if it is gone now.
