H. Pylori Infection complications
H. Pylori Infection

Complications could include:

  • Gastritis is acute or chronic inflammation of the protective lining of the stomach. It's often caused by the bacterium H. pylori, but can also be the result of excessive NSAID, alcohol, or cocaine consumption.
  • Ulcers are open sores. When they occur in the stomach, they are gastric ulcers. Duodenal ulcers occur in the upper area of the small intestine. They often cause a feeling of fullness or hunger, bloating, and burping.
  • Peptic ulcers are sores that develop in the lining of the stomach, esophagus, or rarely in small intestine. They are usually caused by H. pylori, excessive NSAID or alcohol usage, smoking, or stomach cancer.
  • Adults aren't the only ones prone to acid reflux--kids and teens can have it, too. Find out what it is, what causes it, and how to treat it, including natural remedies.
  • Acid reflux symptoms are caused when stomach contents flow up from the stomach back into the esophagus, causing symptoms like heartburn, stomach pain, and burping.
  • If lifestyle changes and medication don't help manage your GERD symptoms, surgery may be your best option. Learn about surgery options such as fundoplication and Stretta procedure.
