What is Helicobacter Pylori?

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a type of bacteria that infects your stomach and duodenum. It attacks the lining that protects your stomach by neutralizing your stomach acid, leading to possible stomach or duodenum sores or ulcers. H. pylori is identified by IARC as a group 1 carcinogen for gastric cancer.

Symptoms

Suffering from stomach pain, bloating or frequent burping?


Most people do not realize that they have H. pylori infection as only 20% of those infected develop signs and symptoms. Symptoms of infection include:


Early Symptoms
Bloating, nausea, vomit, bad breath, frequent burping, weight loss, stomach pain and loss of appetite

Severe Symptoms
Peptic ulcer, anemia and black stools

Potential complications

H. pylori infection can cause gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastric cancer, gastric lymphoma or iron deficiency anemia etc.


The potential of developing more severe illnesses from a H. pylori infection cannot be ruled out even if no symptom is observed. Discovering a H. pylori infection at an early stage and receiving treatment can lower the risk of potential stomach illnesses.


It is important to eliminate H. pylori even if you recover from stomach illnesses as the H. pylori that remains in your stomach can lead to potential recurrence of illnesses.

Mode of transmission

H. pylori bacteria are usually passed from person to person through direct contact with saliva, vomit or stool. It may also spread through contaminated food or water.

Simple treatment

H. pylori infected persons should consult a doctor for appropriate treatments. Patients usually receive "triple therapy" by taking antibiotics for 1-2 weeks. Its side effects are relatively mild and can achieve an efficacy of 85%.
