|Dear Mr Kuldip Aggarwal
Helicobacter pylori, also known as H. pylori, is a bacterium that is commonly found in the stomach. It is present in approximately one-half of the world's population so you should not worry about if your wife has this infection.
The vast majority of people infected with H. pylori infection have no symptoms and will never develop problems anytime in their life. However, H. pylori is capable of causing a number of digestive problems in few sensitive patient, including ulcers, and, much less commonly, stomach cancer.
It is not clear why some people with H. pylori get these conditions and others do not.
You should not worry as your doctor has given you good antibiotics to treat this disease.
Although by many physicians the optimal H. pylori treatment regimen continues to be investigated, According to the American College of Gastroenterology, physician has recommended four specific drug regimens that use a combination of at least three medications. These regimens successfully cure infection in up to 90 percent of people.
For the H. pylori treatment to be effective, it is important to take the entire course of all medications and do not stop the medication in the middle of treatment without the advice of your physician.
