How are you? H. pylori is a type of bacteria that causes more than half of peptic ulcers worldwide. Peptic ulcers caused by H. pylori are treated with drugs that kill the bacteria, reduce stomach acid, and protect the stomach and duodenal lining. Antibiotic regimens are available as well as medicines that reduce stomach acid include proton pump inhibitors and histamine receptor blockers. Definite diagnosis for H. pylori includes breath, stool or urine tests. It is best that you discuss this with your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
