Do I have an H Pylori issue?

by Mark
(Bay City, Michigan)

Ever since a pancreas attack 8 years ago I've had GERD problems and per a doctor have been taking prilosec daily ever since. If I miss a day I end up with acid reflux. I want to test for H Pylori but also think I should do the test for Hydrocloric Acid Deficiency. Is it necessary to do one before the other? Thank you.

acid deficiency and H pylori

Do the H pylori test first before you start the acid deficiency test, as the HCL could kill some of the H pylori and give you a false negative.
