The H.Pylori stool test can be done at home. H. Pylori can be found on the stomach mucosa of infected people, causes very frequent and mostly silent infections that can produce gastritis, gastric ulcers and other serious pathologies. Those who harbor H. Pylori are divided into two basic groups: a) colonized and b) infected. Those who test positive for H. pylori yet have no signs or symptoms of gastrointestinal disease are considered “colonized.” Those who test positive for H. pylori and present with signs or symptoms of gastrointestinal disease are considered “infected.” Of note, research has shown an association of Helicobacter pylori infection and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) as well as other types of cognitive decline. No reason to wait, get tested now!
