Despite being secreted into the gastric juice and mucosa during oral therapy, amoxicillin by itself achieves less than a 20% eradication rate of H pylori. More than 2 g a day of amoxicillin does not increase its eradication rate of H pylori when used as a single agent.
pylori was associated with metabolic disturbances including weight gain[17-19]. Some studies have given an explanation about the effect of H. pylori eradication; one was that H. pylori eradication increases the gastric secretion of ghrelin, which leads to increased appetite and weight gain[20,21].
Most people are cured after finishing two weeks of medicine. Some people need to take another two weeks of medicine. It is important to finish all of the medicine to ensure that the bacteria are killed. Guidelines recommend that all patients treated for H.Jul 6, 2020
Conclusions: Omeprazole is a well studied and well tolerated agent effective in adults or children as a component in regimens aimed at eradicating H. pylori infections or as monotherapy in the treatment and prophylaxis of GORD with or without oesophagitis or NSAID-induced gastrointestinal damage.
Since oral sex is a very common sexual activity and recent evidence reported H. pylori exist in oral cavity as colonized site. Both facts indicated H. pylori may results sex transmitted disease such as vagina, breast and urethritis, However, further clinical studies and lab confirmation should be followed.
Turmeric and curcumin seem to be generally well tolerated. The most common side effects observed in clinical studies are gastrointestinal and include constipation, dyspepsia, diarrhoea, distension, gastroesophageal reflux, nausea, vomiting, yellow stool and stomach ache.Dec 13, 2018
The fats in olive oil can help smooth the insides of the bowel, making it easier for stools to pass. It can also help the stool hold in more water, keeping it softer. One tablespoon of olive oil, taken on an empty stomach in the morning, may relieve constipation for many healthy adults.
7 natural treatments for H. pylori infection Probiotics. Probiotics help maintain the balance between good and bad gut bacteria. Green tea. A 2009 study on mice showed that green tea may help kill and slow the growth of Helicobacter bacteria. Honey. Broccoli sprouts. Phototherapy.
By now, you should know that coffee will irritate an already-existing ulcer. But not so for tea!

Once H. pylori colonises the gastric mucosa, it can persist for a lifetime, and it is intriguing why our immune system is able to tolerate its existence. Some conditions favour the persistence of H. pylori in the stomach, but other conditions oppose the colonisation of this bacterium.
Both raw and ripe bananas are found to be very beneficial in curing stomach ulcer. There are certain antibacterial compounds in bananas that inhibit the growth of ulcer-causing H. pylori. Bananas are best to clear out the acidity of gastric juices that lowers the inflammation and strengthens the stomach lining.Sep 11, 2018
Apples, pears, oatmeal, and other foods that are high in fiber are good for ulcers in two ways. Fiber can lower the amount of acid in your stomach while easing bloating and pain. Research has also shown that a diet rich in fiber may help prevent ulcers.Nov 2, 2020
The gold standard for diagnosis of peptic ulcers is upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (EGD). A barium swallow and upper GI series can be used in patients who are not a candidate or refuse EGD. Other imaging modalities like Abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan (with PO contrast) can sometimes identify stomach ulcers.
These findings indicate that H pylori may disappear and reappear in the gastric mucosa with no specific antibiotic eradication regimen, although omeprazole may eradicate H pylori in vivo in some patients. The natural history of H pylori in gastric biopsies is poorly understood.
Commonly avoided foods and beverages include: Alcohol. Pepper, including black pepper and other types of peppers. Caffeine, including caffeinated sodas.

Researchers have discovered that turmeric polysaccharides can alleviate gastric ulcers by protecting the mucus lining of stomach and inhibiting the growth of an ulcer-causing bacterium1. These polysaccharides could potentially be used as therapeutic agents for treating gastric ulcers.Dec 30, 2015
Results. Overall H. pylori resistance rate was 100% to ampicillin, penicillin and co-amoxiclav; 97.14% to amoxicillin, 97.85% to metronidazole, 47.85% to erythromycin, 13.57% to clarithromycin; 5, 2.86 and 0.71% to doxycycline, tetracycline and minocycline respectively.Oct 22, 2019
A quinolone-containing triple therapy is effective as the first-line therapy for H pylori infection. Its cure rates range from 72 to 96% . The regimen might be considered in populations with clarithromycin resistance greater than 15–20% and quinolone resistance less than 10% .Jul 11, 2017
Altogether, the work established the use of doxycycline as an antiulcer drug that may lead to effective therapy for gastric ulcer. Combination therapy of doxycycline along with other existing antiulcer drugs such as famotidine, ranitidine or omeprazole may be better for treatment of gastric inflammation.Jul 28, 2011
Doxycycline has also been studied in the treatment of H. pylori infections (Table 2). However, it was found to be significantly less effective than tetracycline (65% vs 92%; p = 0.04]. It also showed poor efficacy when combined with amoxicillin, with an overall eradication rate of only 36%.
