Negative for H Pylori on Gastroscopy, But I Still Have Symptoms

by Faye

I recently had a gastroscopy done to determine if I have H.pylori The test came back negative Even though I have all the symptons the burning stomach, the belching fatigue, loss of appetite.

Is it possible the negative results could wrong. I have not done breath test or blood test done. There was stool sample done but I don't know if they checked it for H.pylori

The doctor advised it gastritis . I am currently on Nexium

He told me to just keep taking the pill and watch my diet

Any advice would be greatly appreciated on this and my diet

Endoscopy is not accurate
by: Kerri Knox, RN

Hi Faye,

You're right to question your doctor just giving you drugs because you could definitely still have H pylori. An endoscopy is not an accurate way to diagnose H Pylori. So, the way that an endoscopy is done, a little 'pincher' is used to actually get a tiny little sample of your stomach lining. But H pylori does not occur uniformly throughout the stomach, so unless your stomach has H pylori in THAT SPOT, then they could easily miss it.

The best and most accurate test is an H Pylori Stool Test. Fortunately, you also don't need your doctor's permission or help to get this test. You can simply order it right online without your doctor. No need to get permission to find out about your own health.
