H Pylori vs HIV

by Chris

I am experiencing unexplained weight loss and digestive problems . Thinning stools and severe stomach cramps and nausea. I went to my primary care doctor and my eurologist. Checked my psa levels and submitted and hiv test . Everything came back normal . My worst fear was being infected with hiv because some of my symptoms were similar.

I finally went to a GI and had a colonoscopy and endoscopy and i tested positive for H pylori . My question is .. Is more likely that h pylori is causing my symptoms and this general crapping feeling than having hiv .

I have my blood tested sevrral time at my primary doctor eurologist and in two er rooms and all my blood came back normal . Ive had a hida scan ultra sound . And those came back normal . Im just looking for some piece of mind ?

A bit confused

Hi Chris,

I'm a bit confused. If you tested negative for HIV and positive for H pylori, I'm not sure why you are looking to ME for peace of mind. If you have H pylori, then the next step is to eradicate it and see if that improves your symptoms. I'm not an expert in HIV testing, but if your tests are negative for HIV, then I'm not sure why you are still concerned that your symptoms might be from HIV.

Your symptoms MIGHT be due to H pylori, but you have to eradicate it and see if your symptoms improve in order to find out if they truly are from H pylori or from something else.

Can a H pylori test indicate eary possibilities of HIV ?

by: Kerri Knox, The Immune Queen

No, they are entirely unrelated. I'm not sure where you would come up with such an idea. Half the world has H pylori. Most don't even know it. It's a bacteria, HIV is a virus.

They are completely and totally unrelated except that HIV can lead to higher risks of infections. So, it's possible that someone with HIV might have a higher risk of becoming infected with H pylori. But the opposite is not true. Having H pylori does not indicate a higher risk of having HIV.
