treatment of H plyori

I was treated for H plyori bacteria 9 months ago. And 3 months ago I had a carbon urea breath test which was negative. Couple weeks ago I made a visit to my doctor because of severe heartburn and some stomach pain. Doctor ordered me to pass a blood test which was positive for H plyori. Could it be that I have this bacteeria again?

Re: treatment of H plyori

Do you know if it was a titer or just the test for the bacteria? Once you have H-pylori you usally test positive for it for a while after it. I would see if they did a titer which would definetly tell you it was an active infection. And yes unfortunately you could have it again.

I agree H pylori bactria can stay in your blood for months and is not a reliable way to evaluate it's presence. A breath test is more reliable way of detecting H pylori bacteria.

Re: treatment of H plyori

hi val i had a blood test 2 years ago and tested possitive for h pylori. I then had the awfull medication to get rid of it which did not work. I have since had the same breath test as you and again it came back negative. I have h pylori still and am currently taking more of the awfull medication. The breath test doesnt work i had a berium swallow which showed nothing wrong and i have had my blood sugar levels tested aswell as my thyroid,kidneys and liver which again came back all ok (touch wood).

How about a stool test? I had a stool test and it came back negative for H Pylori about 5 weeks after I had stopped the triple therapy. Is that reliable as well? My symptoms didn't go away after I took the meds. The relationship between h pylori and non ulcer dyspepsia (which I may have) is unclear according to what I've read, but I'm wondering if the initial presence of H Pylori instigated my lingering digestive problems-- even once the bacteria was eliminated. Sort of like the bacteria, "messed everything up", and the result is now non ulcer dyspepsia that has continued over time....just a thought.
