Hello and welcome,
Thanks for your query.
At first, let us talk about the infection you have been diagnosed with. Also called type B Gastritis
, which is what I am guessing you have solely based on the details you have given me.
This type of gastritis occurs due to an infection, caused by the organism called 'Helicobacter
This type of gastritis has a specific regimen, which is used to treat this infection. This regimen is of many different types. Following are the most common ones:
1. Triple therapy: one antibiotic (no.1) + antacid
+ antibiotic (2)- two different types of antibiotics are used for this. Now that I have explained this, you need to understand that this is an infection and requires treatment with antibiotics, and thus, as in your case, only the use of antacids will not give you much relief.
2. Quadruple therapy: Rarely used, but to the triple therapy a 4th agent is added. Either way, in both forms of therapy the use of an antibiotic is pivotal.
Thus, I would advice you to consult a doctor for the same, confirm the diagnosis and accordingly get treated of your condition.
Secondly, I don't think you need to discontinue your cholesterol
medications for this. All you need to do is reach a doctor for proper treatment for your condition.
I wish you luck and good health. I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.
