Still have symptoms after negative h pylori result

by Kimesha

I was treated with antibiotics after a positive h pylori test. I have been tested negative by a stool sample and endoscopy. I left with chronic gastritis. However all my symptoms are still present and it has been two months after treatment. Do I need to have another test done or just wait to see if they will go away. How long before I am symptom free?

You need to retest
by: Kerri Knox, The Immune System Queen

You need to get retested to see if the treatment actually eradicated the H pylori from your system. That you were treated is no guarantee that you actually eliminated your infection. In fact, treatment fails up to 2/3 of the time, meaning that it can fail more often than it works.

So, you should get the H Pylori Stool Test and you can test as soon as one month after your treatment. Do not get a blood test to see if treatment was effective since antibodies can stay in your blood for several months after treatment.

To learn about how and why you may never eliminate your H pylori infection unless you take the right measures before being treated, then get my book The H Pylori Solution and get rid of H pylori once and for all.
