Yes you are positive for H.pylori

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your test results are suggestive of H.pylori infection.Normal level is IgA Abs2 is 1 to 6 mg/dl.
A course of antibiotics-
Amoxicillin 1000 mg twice daily
Clarithromicin 500 mg daily
Omeprazole 40 mg once daily for 21 days.
You would need a prescription for the same.
Have an endoscopy ever performed?
Wish you good luck and fast recovery.
