H Pylori in a 2 Year Old
My daughter was adopted from Ethiopia and came home to us at 8 months old. She was just diagnosed with H. Pylori from a stool sample. She has MANY symptoms, but weight gain, depression (seems like this to me, anyway), bloated abdomen (especially after meals), incessant hunger, and irritability are her main symptoms.
Can the H. Pylori cause these symptoms even in a child so young? She just turned 2 last week, so we have been dealing with this for 16 months, and they have tested for all of the normal things, to no avail. I am just hoping that getting rid of the H. Pylori will help her. Any insight?
