Can I Test Positive for H Pylori and Have No Symptoms
I had horrible stomach ache about 6 weeks ago and went to the doctor. They did blood test and a breath test and it came back positive for h pylori.
I also felt like I had 2 ulcers in my stomach along with increased stomach acid. So I went the natural route and took broccoli sprout capsules, ate broccoli, took apple cider vinegar, and increased my probiotics. I started getting better and feel great except for a little tweaking of an ulcer every now and then.
So I took another breath test and it again came back positive for h pylori. So my doctor wants me to take two antibiotics and prilosec. But I'm feeling great and am hesitant to take the antibiotics because of candida overgrowth that I've had a lot in the past.
Could the positive result of the h pylori just be a fluke or do I need to take the antibiotics to get rid of it?
