they asked to visit gastri
I have seen dr XXXX
in manipal hospital
he is suspecting i am having ibs
and h phylori
my query is what is this h phylorii?
Ok. I'm happy to explain this to you
is a bacteria.
Called Helicobactera Pylori
It infects the lining of your stomach and digs deep inside the wall of the stomach
do i really need to to endoscopy for this?
A small amount of the bacteria growing in your stomach is normal, but if it overgrows it can cause severe gastritis and ulcers
since it digs into the walls of the stomach, it is not possible to check for the infection unless an endoscopy is done, where they will take a brush border sample of the stomach lining and check for h. Pylori
Imagine them as termites in a wodden table, you cannot detect them unless you see the holes that they have dug into the wood, or you take a pice of wood and look at it under a microscope for the termites themselves
For these kinds of things, endoscopy is the only practical way of seeing this infection and actually diagnosing it
There is a blood test that is not perfect
it is called a "Blood Antibody Test for H. Pylori"
sometimes it gives some false negatives
endoscopy is painful?
Nope, have gone through it myself. They will sedate you so that you are asleep
you will wake up and feel a bit gassy
But you will be back to normal in a few hours.
but he told they will not give anything to sleep
they will give some liquide just to put the pipie inside
I'm quite surprised if the doc gives nothing at all, have never heard of that
he obnly told he will only give some \gel to put the pipie inside
and my sister has alos done it she also told it is very painful
is it mandetory to do it?
and i am also having articaria from last 2-3 months
can it also be caused by that bacteria
Well, whether it is mandatory or not is best discussed with another GI doctor.
I am a GP
You should use your corporate portal, ask your question and give the history and we will refer it to another GI doc for you.
