Does basic blood test (cbc) tests for h pylori bacteria?

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.
No. A standard complete blood count measures red blood cells and their characteristics, platelets, and white blood cells and their types.If a peripheral smear is done (microscope), bacteria in the blood can be seen but not always identified.H. Pylori is not a blood infection, rather stomach.Tests that detect h.Pylori include clo test from a biopsy, a breath test, a blood test, and stool antigen test.

Can you tell how long you've had h.Pylori by your blood test?

No. You cannot tell how long you've had it. Many people are carriers and have no active disease being caused by h. Pylori. Biopsy is one of the ways for diagnosis. There is an h. Pylori breath test, a stool antigen test, and blood tests for antibodies to h. Pylori. These test won't really capture how long you've had it. And frankly, its not altogether important in DX and tx.

Usually not. The long answer is that it depends on the test. You can check igg, iga, or IgM antibodies for h pylori. Some specify short term recent infection, others long. Most doctors usually don't check all three, which is appropriate. Bottom line, duration usually doesn't matter. Read more...
Nope. Levels on the blood test give us no clue about how long you've had it. When we treat you, our medical regimens are only about 80 % effective, and you should have a stool test for h pylori several months after treatment to ensure that it is gone. Read more...

This is my h.pylori blood test result. IGG positive 17.95. IGM negative 8.50. do I have h.pylori?

Likely not. IgG to this organism points to a previous infection, IgM an active or very recent infection which is not the case for you. If you do have gastritis symptoms however, I believe a PCR assay from a stool sample would be the best way to detect it if a culture of the gastric biopsy is not contemplated. Read more...
