Once you test positive for h pylori, will you always test positive?
I tested positive for h. pylori in July 2011 and began using natural supplements(mainly mastic gum) instead of antibiotics. I also changed to a plant based diet. Virtually all my symptoms disappeared. I tested again in September 2011 and my result was positive. My doctor says once you have it, you will always test positive. I don't understand how I could test positive when I felt I no had it. She recommended I go in for an Endoscopy for information as to what is going on with my digestive system. I am reluctant to have this test since I am feeling so much better. I no longer have constant fatigue or pain. Should I have a Endoscopy?
