Recently tested positive for H. Pylori, a bacteria that lives in 2\3rds of the population and can cause stomach\gerd problems, as well as Leaky Gut type symptoms. Onward and upward, feeling better everyday after a rough 2 years.

Hey Tim! Good to see you. That's great you got your postive test to help you manage things along. There have to be better days around the corner 😊 What does H. Pylori do then? It hasn't got a very fetching name 😲

I hope you just keep getting better and better Tim

hi Sarah. I noticed it had been 23 days since my last post...
Here is some WIKI info about H. Pylori:
Helicobacter pylori, previously known as Campylobacter pylori, is a gram-negative, microaerophilic bacterium usually found in the stomach. It was identified in 1982 by Australian scientists Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, who found that it was present in a person with chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers, conditions not previously believed to have a microbial cause. It is also linked to the development of duodenal ulcers and stomach cancer. However, over 80% of individuals infected with the bacterium are asymptomatic, and it may play an important role in the natural stomach ecology.
I believe it kinda burrows into the protective stomach lining and causes inflammation and micro perforations in said lining, leading to an broken down system.

Argh Timo that sounds scary! These bacteria have creepy names and creepy ways. Be interested to know how you'll be going about managing this. Did you say you also had a candida overgrowth do I remember?

Candida is getting under control. Might take another course of anti-fungal meds. I'll keep posting updates as to whether I eradicate the Pylori after the first course of antibiotics I am using for it, as well as the Candida. 9 years on a biologic may have allow these infections to creep in and continue the past few years.
