Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a specific type of bacteria that predominantly affects your digestive system. Most patients may never fall ill from the bacteria. If you begin to develop signs of ulcers, you should get tested for H. pylori infection. If you leave it untreated, H. pylori infection can cause ulcers in the stomach by invading the inner lining of your stomach which safeguards you from stomach acid. This can cause unwanted pain and irritation and could eventually lead to cancer of the stomach if untreated. If you are having painful gastrointestinal symptoms like stomach pain, bloating, or nausea, you may have an H. pylori infection and should be evaluated by an educated GI professional immediately. You can find a skilled GI specialist near you at a Lubbock Digestive Disease Associates location in Lubbock, TX

Helicobacter pylori can gain access to your body from food, unclean water, or dirty utensils. It is common to find H. pylori in countries or locations that have unsafe water quality and sewage systems. Keep in mind, however, that everyone is at risk. You could get infected if you come in contact with an H. pylori-positive person’s spit or other bodily fluids. If H. pylori enters your body, you might experience the following symptoms:

  • Unexpected weight loss
  • Abdominal pain that is worse on an empty stomach
  • Nausea
  • Bloating
  • A burning sensation in the abdomen
  • Burping
  • Stomach pain

Dr. Miller has never disappointed me. I have been a patient of his for many years. Dr. Miller always spends as much time with me as I need. He is quite knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend Dr. Miller to anyone, even if his daughter is a collegiate aggie.
