Hi,H.Pylori is a organism that causes chronic infection in stomach and is associated with peptic ulcer disease.It may be asymptomatic or present with nausea, vomiting, pain abdomen,heartburn etc.In case you are tested positive , you will require antibiotic treatment for 7-14 days , to eradicate the infection along with proton pump inhibitors.No dietary restrictions are required. Hope it helps.
