Low Platelets caused by H-Pylori

by Kristen
(Costa Rica)

I have a platelet count of 110.000

Never really gets into the normal numbers. My dog had a biopsy and it showed H-pylori sp.
I have tested and I have tested positive in a fecal exam, yet tested negative in my blood exam.

Dog has been suffering stomach issue's where as I have nothing to show for having this bacteria. Other than low plate count?

Question is....Should I be getting the treatment?
I assume I have had this bacteria for years......Low platelets were brought to my attention 15 years ago. Clearly, my body is living in harmony with this bacteria?
Thoughts please?

Doctors' ran all kinds of tests (15 years ago ) but never came up with this one. All these years later, I get the test since my dog has it. She is being treated for 15 days in the clinic.

Please advice me for further assistance.

It's a decision that you have to make

Hi Kristin,

I can't tell you if this is something that you need to get rid of or not. Maybe low platelets have nothing to do with the H pylori, or maybe the H pylori is the cause of the low platelets. Unless you get rid of the H pylori and check your platelets again, you'll simply never know.

However, if the h pylori IS the cause of the low platelets, then you are certainly not 'in harmony' with the H pylori, it's just causing serious symptoms that you can't 'feel' yet. This is the same way that H pylori can lead to autoimmune disease, by an insidious process of inflammation, intestinal permeability and nutritional deficiencies. Most people with auto-immune diseases 'think' that they are fine too- until they are not.

So, it is certainly up to you whether you get rid of the H pylori or not, many people live with H pylori for years with no problems. But I can tell you that it DOES cause your body to be fighting off infection constantly, and therefore does take a toll that you may or may not feel. As an example, high level athletes who just want a competitive edge in sports can measurably improve their times in sports by eliminating H pylori. The toll it takes on you may be subtle, but it's there.

So, if you DO decide to eliminate the H pylori infection, I highly recommend that you get my book The H Pylori Solution so you can take the correct measures in order to eliminate the bacteria the first time and keep it gone. In addition, it will help you decide whether to take antibiotics or herbal preparations, and if you decide to take antibiotics, which antibiotics that you should NEVER take for H pylori even if your doctor DOES prescribe them for your infection.

So, I hope that this helps. Keep me updated on your progress.
