False Negative Tests for H Pylori

by Kris
(Paoli, pa. U.s.a)

I have had on going issue for the last three years. I have had my gallbladder removed due to a high alt, however it still persists. I have loads of pain in my upper left quadrant and back that are worse when not eating for a couple of hours or after eating. And if I have any alcohol it really burns for days after

I have had every scan, test, and several scopes, upper and lower nothing showing with the exception of a very mildly elevated alt in the bloodwork

Is it possible that the endoscopy could have missed the h. Pylori? I have never had a breath test or blood work specifically looking for it.

I am a very healthy 43 yr old male who works out 5 days a week, no history of alcohol abuse, used to smoke. I have an incredibly high stress job that could be the only contributing factor that I can think of.

Yes, Get a Blood Test or Stool Test

Hi Kris,

Yes, it's VERY conceivable that they missed the H pylori on a scope. If they don't biopsy from a site of infection then it can be missed. Getting a blood test or an H Pylori Stool Test such as I offer on my site is far more accurate.

You may have had every TEST imaginable, but unless you have tried a gluten free diet without any improvement, then it's still a very real possibility that you could have Gluten Sensitivity which could be contributing to some or all of your problems.
