Chronic Diarrhea After Treatment for H Pylori Bacteria

by John

I was treated for H. Pylori on 6/16 2010 with medication like Metronidazole, Clarithromycin and Omeprazole.

Since that time I have Dark diarrhea every morning ,I can't sleep in the morning I have to wake up at around 5 am to go to the bathroom I have no specific Pain ,I try to take Imodium AD but the next day I do not go to the Bathroom but the day after I go and its back to diarrhea. It as been 2 year of that. Before taking these medication I only had little gas here and there. but now when I woke up,even in the middle of the night, I am so dehydrated dry mouth I have to drink water or juice. Hard to explain.

Can you explain a little bit more to me what is going on and what should I do?

C-Difficile Infection
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi John,

It's very possible that the antibiotics that you took led to an 'overgrowth' infection in your intestines called Antibiotic Colitis, which is the result of an infection called 'Clostridium Difficile'. While hardly anyone talks about this infection, studies have shown that up to 30% of hospitalized patients taking antibiotics get C Difficile infection from the antibiotics.

This can be a very serious infection and you should get tested to 'rule out' this infection. Diarrhea after antibiotics is the most common symptom.

You can get my Intestinal Pathogen Test which will test you for C Difficile as well as retest you for H pylori, which may never have been eradicated completely.
