Since Helicobacter pylori can trigger the development of ulcers, gastritis, all kinds of erosions of the stomach wall and intestines, promotes the development of cancer, its causes, and treatment should be paid special attention.
The causes of the disease
Contamination with a dangerous bacteria like Helicobacter pylori, is due to ingestion of contaminated food and water, as well as direct contact with a carrier of Helicobacter. Infection is sometimes enough not washed before eating hands or using someone else's utensils. According to recent studies, it became known that transmitted infection and family members. If a person has reduced immunity, Helicobacter pylori easier to harm the body because antibodies are produced in small quantities.
Once in the stomach, Helicobacter provoke a large number of dangerous diseases. They are subjected to the action of hydrochloric acid, causing Helicobacter pylori safely penetrate into the mucous membrane of the stomach wall, compromising its protective properties. The negative properties of H. pylori are able to induce endocrine diseases, cholecystitis, gastric cancer, frequent inflammation of the skin, to act on the heart, causing coronary artery disease. Therefore it is extremely important properly conducted diagnostics of H. pylori.
Correctly identify the symptoms
In the organism Helicobacter pylori may be a long time to make itself felt, while the relatives of the patient passed some bacteria. They aktiviziruyutsya in the stomach during the weakening of the body – this can occur after severe stress, angina and even sudden change of diet. Since the main symptoms are gastritis and ulcers, it is quite possible that a person can be healed from the infection, and stomach problems. Only timely diagnostics of H. pylori will protect against the failure of treatment.
The bacterium Helicobacter pylori can cause:

- hair loss and intractable bad breath.
In the presence of H. pylori may disturb frequent pain in the stomach, disappearing after eating. Sometimes develop poor digestibility of meat products, along with frequent heartburn, heaviness in stomach, nausea, vomiting.
Modern methods of disease detection
Despite the obvious signs inherent in the life of the bacteria Helicobacter pylori, for konstatinovna the fact of its existence and proper treatment should consult adoctor. Special diagnostics, such as breath test for H. pylori, with an accuracy of 90% to detect bacteria. Breath test is able to determine in the stomach the presence of H. pylori due to the fact that in exhaled human air contains the waste products of bacteria.
To results stomach study were reliable, a test is done on an empty stomach in the morning, when the last intake of food was more than 8 and water – more than 1-2 hours ago. Before taking you need to follow the following rules:
- exception of alcoholic beverages, the use of drugs;

A blood test
There is also this diagnosis of H. pylori as a blood test. He is appointed by gastroenterologist in case of pain in the stomach, with a weakened immune system, family history or as a preventive measure.
Diagnosis a blood test allows to determine whether the antibody is active against Helicobacter pylori, what is their number in the period of the disease. The analysis is carried out by exposing the plasma chemical effects. Because the body produces protective antibodies to fight infections, there are a good many important for the elimination of Helicobacter pylori. The results may not always be correct because the detectable immune response may not happen immediately, but when antibodies to H. pylori have already started their activities.
If the diagnosis of H. pylori via blood collection from Vienna is scheduled for the morning, you should avoid a fatty meal the day before. Fat very long stays in the stomach and affect the result.
In addition to the analysis on antibodies to H. pylori, there is a procedure stool test for detecting Helicobacter pylori.
To combat Helicobacter pylori using drugs anti-acid type, which are able to reduce the amount produced in the stomach juice. But sometimes after discontinuation of these drugs in the stomach of the patient resumed the number of H. pylori.
The complete destruction of Helicobacter pylori – a difficult task, since bacteria have traced the antibiotic resistance. It is therefore recommended that a combination of antibacterial drugs with the drug bismuth and proton pump inhibitors. If repeated examination showed the presence of H. pylori in the stomach, resume treatment with the same drugs is not necessary, because the bacterium Helicobacter pylori will be resistant to them.
At the end of treatment of the stomach performed additional tests – stool tests and breathingtest to establish the effectiveness of treatment. This is especially true if the bacterium H. pylori caused serious complications in the stomach.
In addition, the bacterium Helicobacter fairly stable, complete destruction in the stomach can have a positive impact not on all patients. As you know, antibiotics destroy the microflora, leading to the fact that antibodies are not produced in the right quantity.
