Why test for stomach ulcer?
It is estimated that half of the world's population is infected with Helicobacter pylori. Infection with this bacterium can cause stomach ulcer or gastritis. Untreated infections can put you at an increased risk of developing ulcers or stomach cancer.
Who is it for?
Everyone. Infection occurs in both men and women of any age, including children.
What is Helicobactor pylori?
Helicobactor pylori is a bacterium that enters the stomach in food and drink, but does not get destroyed by the acid there. Around 30-40% of us are thought to be infected with it, and it can cause inflammation of the stomach lining, known as gastritis. A small number of cases can progress to stomach cancer. But now we know that H. pylori is one of the guilty parties, many of these cancers could be prevented with simple antibiotic treatment.
How often should this test be performed?
As often as you wish. However, if you have been treatment for infection with H. pylori, positive results may appear up to 12 months after the infection has been cleared.
What is the interpretation of results?
Results should not be interpreted after 20 minutes.
What should you do if the result is positive?
You should consult your doctor for further examination, diagnosis and potential treatment. Do not make any medical decisions without consulting your doctor. Not being infected with H. pylori does not necessarily mean that you cannot get a stomach ulcer for another reason.
