H. pylori (short for helicobacter pylori) is a certain type of bacteria, found in your stomach, that mainly affects your digestive system. Most individuals don't get ill from H. pylori. In the event you have signs of ulcers, you should get tested for H. pylori infection. If you do not have it treated, H. pylori infection can lead to stomach ulcers by attacking the inner lining of the stomach, which protects you from stomach acid. This can lead to unwanted affliction and discomfort and may ultimately lead to stomach cancer if untreated. If you experience uncomfortable gastrointestinal symptoms such as stomach pain, you may have an H. pylori infection and will want to be seen by an educated GI specialist. You can find an expert GI doctor near you at Colorado Gastroenterology in Denver, CO.

H. pylori typically gains access to our bodies from food and unclean water or dirty utensils. It is more common to find H. pylori in countries or areas that have poor water quality and septic systems. Keep in mind, however, that everybody is perhaps at risk. You might get infected if you come in contact with an H. pylori-positive person’s saliva or other bodily fluids. If H. pylori gets in your system, you can experience the following symptoms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Abdominal pain on an empty stomach
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Stomach pain
  • A burning sensation in the abdomen
  • Nausea
  • Bloating
  • Burping

Book an appointment with your gastroenterologist in Denver, CO if you experience any of the previous symptoms, or if you have had strong abdominal pain, black or bloody stool, and/or vomit.

The most common treatments for someone that has H. pylori in their system are meant to kill the bacteria while relieving symptoms. Treatments for H. pylori usually include a regimen of two or more antibiotics to prevent the bacteria from becoming unaffected by the treatment. Treatment of the symptoms usually includes antacids and other remedies to prevent acid reflux and encourage the stomach lining to repair itself.

i felt that when I was there 2 yrs, ago I felt that Dr. S. was more patient and listened more.{perhaps he did not like the fact that I turned down the coloscopy.) I question why I have to have invasive procedures when less alternatives have not been explored. They own the center. Caching, caching.... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
