The stomach mucus protects the inner wall of stomach and duodenum from the stomach acid. A disturbed protective function can lead to infections of the gastric mucosa (gastritis) and to a development of ulcers.
The main reason for such complaints is an infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. An infection with Helicobacter pylori increases the risk of developing stomach cancer.
An infection does not necessarily cause any symptoms. This mainly depends on the degree of infection as well as the general health and nutritional condition. In most cases, an infection can be successfully treated by a combination therapy of antibiotics and acid inhibitors.
With this test, an infection with Helicobacter pylori can be detected safely and easily.
