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

Potential complications

Mode of transmission

Simple treatment

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, frequent burping, weight loss, stomach pain and loss of appetite
• Severe symptoms: peptic ulcer, anemia and black stools

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.

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.

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%.

FAQs

Who should use UU Tube?
UU Tube is especially suitable for the elderly, households with infected persons, families with history of gastric cancer, and people with stomach ailments or residing in crowded or unhygienic living conditions etc.
Is an empty stomach or any medication required prior to testing?
No, no fasting or medication is not required prior to testing.
How often should I conduct the test?
It is advised to test for H. pylori annually as as its rates of transmission and infection are very high, regular check-ups with relevant treatments can lower the risk of future complications.
If you have received treatment to H. pylori infection, repeat testing for H. pylori at least 4 weeks after the treatment is recommended. If the test result is positive, you should contact your doctor and seek further treatments.
