Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection usually follows the diagnosis of gastritis or ulcer disease. With adequate antibiotic therapy, the bacteria should be eradicated and the risk of future complications decreased. While the infection may be gone, it is important to continue behavioral modification to prevent stomach inflammation from non-infectious causes.
