I was wondering how many of you deal with H Pylori on a regular basis and how often you get put on antibiotics for it?  And what your symptoms are?  I get "up high" pains followed by diarrhea when I have H Pylori.
Also, does anyone know if there is a "current" test for H Pylori?  I know you can have a blood test once but if you test positive in that, it'll ALWAYS be positive.  But is there another test that tells you if the H Pylori is CURRENTLY active in your system?

I was tested during an upper scope, through a biopsy, I guess.

I had blood work for it thet came back negative. Howeve, my gi did the upper scope and found I had it thru biopsy. He says if you have had it a yr it will not show up in lab work. Susie

Usually they use a prevpack for it.

My daughter suffers from pain in her chest....she's been put on ranitidine twice daily...but the doctor suspected h pylori so he sent her for a test.....she had nothing to eat or drink after midnight before the test and then, at a regular lab, was made to blow in a collection tube of sorts. 30 minutes later had to come back and do the same again. It's the first time I've heard or seen this test for h pylori. whe haven't received the results yet.
