What is H Pylori and what foods should I avoid? Are there any natural things to eat or drink to help with symptoms?
2 questions here: If Helicobacter pylori has been documented in association with ulcer, then treatment is requisite. Not treating this bacteria places you at risk for ulcer non-healing, ulcer recurrence, & even stomach cancer.There are several antibiotic combinations that work quite effectively in eradicating H.pylori. After completion of antibiotics, check stool to document clearance. Regarding diet, please re-ask. ...Read more
I have been diagnosed with gastritis as a result of h pylori what are some foods I can eat and cannot eat to help in the situation?
H. Pylori: If you had h. Pylori, you should be treated for it since the treatment course is simple. Once you achieved eradication of the bacteria, you should not have symptoms from it. If continue to have this problem, you might want to assess the gallbladder. Other etiologies are possible, but less likely. I would evaluate the gallbladder next. ...Read more
No H-Pylori... Very minor Focal Intestinal Metaplasia... How can I reverse the very very early stages of this? I do eat a fair amount of sodium in foods. I could cut down on that. I also drink a lot of soda and caffeine.
Intestinal metaplasi: This finding occurs in a number of settings- response to H pylori, atrophic gastritis, and in some de novo settings. The risk of neoplasia is still low when an isolated finding, but bears watching. Aside from treatment of helicobacter, other interventions are not known to reverse the change. Depending on the location, (more innocent the more distal the biopsy) just making sure no h.p is best preve ...Read more
Can H Pylori cause swallowing problems or spasms? Where you cant eat solid foods only liquids? My Upper Endoscopy was normal. Baruim swallow showed bacteria and a little acid.
Esophageal Spasm: H Pylori is not known to cause spasm of the esophagus. You had endoscopy was normal and what tpo say Barium Swallow showed bacteria and acid does not make sence to me. There are different tests for Esophageal spasm like manometry and consult your Gastroentrologist. Control Acidcreflux, avoid too hot of too cold food and a trial of smooth muscle relaxants like calcium channel blockers. Avoid stres ...Read more
Anything: H. Pylori is a bacterium which often infects the stomach. It can lead to gastric or duodenal ulcers and increases the risk of stomach cancer. It is easily treated with antibiotics and acid suppression. It doesn't prevent you from eating any foods. Your risk of ulcers is higher i'd you take nsaids (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.) though. ...Read more
Regular food: There is nothing that you can eat that is more acidic than the hydrochloric acid that is already produced by the stomach ...Read more
I was diagnosed with H.Pylori. It was left untreated for 10 years & now I'm 6stone at 26. My body won't let me eat It just comes back up what can I do?
R/O H PYLORI: H PYLORI IS THE ULCER CAUSING BACTERIA. Normally if GERD SX & ABD PAIN HAVE BEEN PRESENT 8-12wks. It is checked in blood work /stool & breath test if possible. THE MOST EFFECTIVE REGIMEN I USE IS PREVPAK X 2 wks Given your age GI CONSULT with EGD MAY BE SUGGESTED. After treatment check stool for h pylori x 3 to document clearance. Then go to a gluten free diet gutbliss. Com ...Read more
I have h pylori & am on my 7th day of antibiotics. I have read so much about foods that you should avoid. Would like info.
Most people avoid...: Most people with gastritis, gastric reflux, and high acidity symptoms may feel better when they avoid eating acidic foods such as citrus or pineapples, avoid alcoholic drinks or caffeinated drinks, avoid acidic beverages, and avoid oily meals. Most flavored drinks are acidic and contain ingredients such as citric acid. If eating something acidic, one may take a TUMs (calcium carbonate) to neutralize the acid. ...Read more
Very nauseous and bloated since yesterday night. Could this be the fact I have h pylori and I'm sensitive to some foods now?! : (
H pylori...: ...Is a chronic condition and does not cause acute disease; if you are feeling acutely worse since yesterday, h pylori is probably not to blame. ...Read more
Spicey/acidic foods: Chronic infection with h. Pylori can cause gastritis/ulcers in your stomache/duodenum and that can cause pain when exposed to acid etc. Thus spicey/acidic foods (tomatos, citrus fruits) can cause you additional misery. I assume you had take antibiotics already? Continue your acid-suppressing meds and follow up with your doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Would not work.: H pylori has all of the nutrients that it needs in the mucus layer of the stomach. There is no way to "starve" it. The only way to get rid of it is treating it with antibiotics. Hope that helps. ...Read more
H pylori can cause a wide range of symptoms. People with H pylori do report early satiety (feeling full after eating a small amount of food), but this does not improve with elimination of H pylori.
This suggests that the H pylori infection is not responsible for the early satiety.
If you are interested, here is the study -

Explanation: You practically mentioned all major factors. But this is not so simple. H. Pylori is very important but working in complex with other factors. And need to reach high level of infection for damaging effect. Treatment is effective around 97%. Recent study. ...Read more
Have H.pylori. Which fruit is recommended? Cut out all caffeine until 1 week course of anti b's.any foods I need to avoid? . Thank u
No dietary changes.: There is no need for eliminating fruit from your diet or for changing what you're eating. What you do need is to follow the instructions on the antibiotic regimen that your doctor put you on for the H pylori. If you do, it is very likely that you'll be able to eliminate it. Good luck. ...Read more
Not fixed with food: If helicobacter pylori has been documented esp. If associated with ulcer, then eradication is requisite to avoid risk for ulcer non-healing, ulcer recurrence, & even stomach cancer.There are a number of antibiotic combinations that work quite effectively in treating the infection. Test & treat +contacts simultaneously to avoid cross infection. Document clearance of H.pylori after completing antibx. ...Read more
I was diagonised with ulcers ---> h. Pylori. I took medication but I still feel nauseated always even after avoiding certain foods. What should I do?
Maybe not gone...: Treatment for h pylori works about 85% of the time, not 100 %. Can get checked without invasive testing for cure (breath or stool test). Perhaps symptoms are not due to h pylori. Follow up with doc and find out. ...Read more
Family history of colon cancer, 3 weeks of constant burning upper left ab pain, could colon be a suspect? H pylori negative. Hurts both sides aft eat.
See GI specialist: Colon CA uncommon at your age. There are a number of other causes of pain such as yours. Ask your physician for a referral to a gastroenterologist for a comprehensive evaluation. ...Read more
Not H.pylori...: H.Pylori ; gastritis only affect the stomach lining. Difficulty swallowing ("dysphagia") can be distinguished as a "transfer" problem (difficulty moving food from mouth to top of esophagus), "transit" problem (difficulty moving food down the esophagus), "spasm", gerd (due to sphincter problems), or obstructive (webs, rings, strictures, ulcer, tumor). Consider eosinophilic esophagitis at your age. ...Read more
If I am h pylori negative & I don't drink alcohol, I don't smoke, I don't take nsaids & I eat a balanced diet, what causes are left for gastritis?
Can diet cranberry juice from oceanspray be good as juice to heal h.Pylori and mild gastritis. Also what fruits and food to help heal the infection?
Probably not: The mild gastritis is likely caused by the h. Pylori infection. H pylori is a bacteria that attacks stomach lining. Effective treatment is a 10-14 days of antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor (like omeprazole) to decrease acid. Lack of treatment may lead to chronic stomach pain and/or stomach ulcers. There is no good evidence that cranberry juice or specific foods are good treatments. ...Read more
I have antral gastritis from EGD no h pylori. I think it started from antibiotics I took with out food, im on zantac 300 mg 2 a day. How long 2 heal?
14 days: I cannot see you age or history based on your question alone. Zantac is inferior, in my view, to proton pump inhibitors in treating the cause and symptoms of gastritis. I assume the diagnosis was made by gastroscopy. Uncomplicated gastritis usually settles, in my experience, within 2 weeks of taking adequate PPI dose daily. Again I assume no H. Pylori etc. Perhaps change treatment? ...Read more
Can h pylori return after eradication of it 6 months ago, now have pain in the area of the original duodenal ulcer. Cannot eat anything without being?
Yes it can: Yes, it can return but may not necessarily be causing your symptoms. If you are experiencing dark stools, you should see your doctor immediately. If you are vomiting blood or coffee grind material or your stool has blood, go to er! Avoid any pain meds like advil, ibuprofen, aspirin. You should see your doc as soon as possible for further eval. You may need further tests. You should stop smoking! Take care! ...Read more

I ve dislocated TMJ & GERD & h.Pylori, lost my appetite idon't eat 4 a week nw jst few bites or non, aneamic & gonna get TMJ lavage undr full ansthesia?
NO lavage: Whoa! The TMJ is a very complex area, how would you feel if you dislocated your shoulder? You would be sore for several months. I would advise 1) 3d cat scan --> to made sure the architecture of the TMJ is ok 2) 1-2 wks of anti-inflammatory meds-> to help hasten healing, 3) a soft diet without opening mouth too wide for 2-4weeks-> this joint must not be stressed to allow healing. ...Read more
Up left ab & back pain, neg. H pylori, preg. So no endoscopy no foods make better or worse, RX PPI and antacids don't help nothing helps any ideas?
Some info. Missing: Since don't know how far along you are, it's hard to generalize. During the third trimester, your stomach has less room for food and that can contribute to heartburn & indigestion. The enlarging uterus puts strain on the back muscles so back ache is common too. A kidney infection on the left side can cause the symptoms you describe also, and I recommend that be checked out too. ...Read more
