H. Pylori is a common type of bacteria that grows in the digestive tract and has a tendency to attack the stomach lining H. Pylori infections are usually harmless, but they are responsible for the majority of ulcers in the stomach and small intestine.
While infection with the strain of bacteria typically causes symptoms they can lead to diseases in some people, including peptic ulcers and an inflammatory condition inside your stomach known as gastritis.
- Infections are thought to spread from one person’s mouth to another.
- They may also be transferred from face to mouth, through contaminated hands.
- Spread through contaminated food or water
- Bacteria can penetrate the stomach’s mucous lining and generate substances that neutralize stomach acids.
- Stomach acid and H.pylori together irritate the stomach lining and may cause ulcers in your stomach and duodenum.
Most people with H. pylori doesn’t have any symptoms when infection leads to ulcer symptoms include:
- Abdominal pain especially before meals
- Excessive burping
- Bloated feeling
- Unexplained weight loss
Higher risk is more likely to develop in children mostly due to lack of proper hygiene.
Pylori can lead to peptic ulcers but infection of the ulcer itself can lead to more serious complications.
- Internal bleeding associated with iron deficiency Anaemia
- Obstruction : Which can happen like a tumour blocks the food
- Perforation : When an ulcer breaks through the stomach wall
Lifestyle and Diet :
