H. pylori (Heartburn) Study

Helicobacter pylori, referred to as H. pylori, are common bacteria that can be transferred from human-to-human.  In fact, about half of the world’s population is infected with it. These gastric bacteria can cause chronic inflammation and have been associated with gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and gastric cancers. A simple breath test can be used for office-based diagnosis of H. pylori infections. The results are available in about 10 to 20 minutes.  Treatment consists of a combination of three or four different medications; antibiotics, Bismuth, and proton pump inhibitors (ex. Prilosec). If you are experiencing any symptoms of dyspepsia (heartburn/GERD) you could be infected with these bacteria. There is an investigational breath test to identify the presence of H. pylori.  Call our office (615-329-2222) for more information and to see if you qualify.
