I have h. Pylori, when I eat any kind of foods it makes my stomach hurt more. Why does it do that?

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 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

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
