Important information about Helicobacter Pylori
Konstantin Peysin, DO. Talks to us about this :
What is H. Pylori?
Helicobacter pylori, better known as H. pylori is a bacteria that attacks your stomach lining. More than half of the world’s population has H. pylori. It can cause inflammation of the stomach lining, resulting in peptic ulcers.
An H. Pylori infection is known to spread through fecal-oral, gastro-oral and oral-oral transmission from one infected person to another. This occurs through contamination of food and water or directly through fecal matter or saliva. If left untreated it could lead to diseases such as Stomach Cancer. The reason why some individuals never show any symptoms while others suffer greatly from H. Pylori is still unknown
It’s estimated that 30-40% of Americans are infected with Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori), however they just don’t know it because many never get sick. When untreated, it stays in your stomach, where it can ultimately cause a stomach ulcer or cancer.1.
What health conditions develop due to H. pylori?
Helicobacter pylori or H. pylori, is a bacterium that is unique because it survives in stomach acid. Once H. pylori is in the stomach, it migrates to areas that are less acidic and releases virulence factors such as urease. It then secretes an enzyme that neutralizes stomach acid. The bacteria then infect your stomach lining, where they can cause:
- Chronic gastritis
- Stomach ulcers
- Duodenal ulcers
- Iron deficiency anemia
- Stomach cancer
H. pylori is the most common cause of stomach ulcers and chronic gastritis. It is also a primary cause of gastric cancer and stomach cancer.
How do I get Helicobacter pylori?
The majority of individuals with H. Pylori do not have any symptoms. Once you get an H. pylori infection, it can last a lifetime if it goes untreated. In many patients, it causes such a mild infection, they are unaware it is there.
The bacteria spread through contact with a contaminated person or by consuming food and water containing the bacteria. H. Pylori can also be passed through saliva, vomit or stool.
If you develop a chronic infection, you will experience symptoms such as:
- An ache or burning pain in your abdomen
- Abdominal pain that’s worse when your stomach is empty
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of appetite
- Frequent burping
- Unintentional weight loss
Gastritis, a stomach or duodenal ulcer and stomach cancer can all cause bleeding that passes through your GI tract and leaves the body through your stool. This type of blood in stool makes your bowel movements appear black and tarry. If you notice this symptom, schedule an appointment at Triborough GI for a thorough checkup.
The doctors at Triborough GI test for H. pylori using a urease breath test. During this test, you drink a fluid that contains carbon molecules. If you have an H. pylori infection, the carbon is released when the beverage is digested in your stomach.
The carbon leaves your body as you exhale, so you only need to breathe into a bag, and your doctor uses a device to detect carbon molecules. Other forms of diagnosing H. Pylori include:
Fecal Antigen Test
Upper GI Endoscopy
Triple therapy is used to treat H. pylori. It usually consists of two antibiotics, Amoxicillin and Clarithromycin, to prevent the bacteria from developing resistance to one specific antibiotic, together with acid-suppressing drugs such as proton pump inhibitors. The antibiotics take care of the bacteria, while the proton pump inhibitors give your stomach time to heal.
