I agree with the antibiotic choices, but I am not aware that it can lead to the side effect of hunger.  

In general, the treatment regimen will have a cure rate above 85-90 percent.  If the symptoms persist despite antibiotics, there are other regimens that you can consider.  

In terms of tests to determine if the H Pylori has been eradicated, the breath test would be the appropriate test.  The blood test will stay positive, and thus, cannot be used to see whether it has been appropriately treated.  

These questions can be discussed with your personal physician.
