Seeing your comment on H pylori common March 2010, cause of gastritis. Is it normally in upper stomach? just above the navel, is that correct Doctor? I am trying to guess whether my gastitis is being caused by H pylori. Thankyou.
Your doctor can use one of three simple tests to detect H. pylori in a patient's blood, breath, or stool. The breath test and stool test more accurate in detecting H. pylori than the blood test, some doctors prefer to use one of these two tests.
