Customer Question
My lab report indecated...

My lab report indecated that I have H-Pylori. My Dr put me on a regiment of twice 14 DAYS , 28 DAYS TOTAL of antibiotics. the second report from the Lab tells me that I still have the infection. We are now waiting out the next 6 weeks before another tests can be done. Is there anyother method that I can be doing or should I be watching my food intake for acids.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Like I said my Doctor put me on two different regiment of strong antibiotics for a total of 28 days.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am a serviver of 17 years of breast cancer. I try to eat well, if I eat strong acid foods than my stomach is blooded, cramps. I have an issue with my bells. But with careful medication I try to go every third day.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Yes and trying to learn up about this infection. Can you tell me what I should be on lookout for food wise and not eat. Would keeping the acid down in my stomach, would this cure the infection.

At this time I will cancel this call. I can see where I have gone through the course of antibiiotics that you have listed from my Dr.I only wish to know if there is anything I should not be eating and mainly keep away from any heavy acid foods for the next two months. I do not wish to pay at this time. Thanks.

you don't have to accept additional phone consult services.

have you taken a proton pump inhibitor along with 2 or 3 antibiotics?

you need a PPI like omeprazole or nexium or protonix along with antibiotics to get rid of h Pylori.
