Patients with Helicobacter pylori infection may have no typical symptoms. Some patients will experience acid reflux, heartburn, belching, abdominal distension, gastric discomfort, and peculiar taste in the mouth.
Helicobacter pylori infection is an important factor that causes chronic gastritis. The onset process is slow and the disease is easy to recur. It is characterized by causing gastric mucosal damage, which can be diagnosed by C13 insufflation. Severe Helicobacter pylori infection or untimely treatment may cause gastric and duodenal ulcers, which is one of the risk factors for gastric cancer.
90% of patients with Helicobacter pylori infection can be eradicated after treatment, but some patients may have relapses. In addition, not all patients in the clinic need to cure H. pylori, and it is necessary to use triple or quadruple therapy for sterilization under the guidance of doctors based on the patient's wishes, symptoms, family history and other factors. Such as the application of proton pump inhibitors or H2 receptor antagonists plus two antibiotics.
Helicobacter pylori can be transmitted from person to person, feces-to-mouth, and family infections are more common. When patients start to eradicate Hp treatment, they should promptly replace the dishes and chopsticks, share meals at home, and also need to replace toothbrushes, water cups, towels, etc.
