down the cause of your ulcer.
Listed below are different methods your doctor may use to
give you a diagnosis of your stomach ulcer. You need to see
a doctor for a diagnosis of your stomach ulcer as soon as
you start showing symptoms.
This is where you really need your doctor. The first thing
your doctor should be looking for is an infection of the H.
pylori bacteria. Once your doctor has diagnosed you properly
Ė you can then decide which treatment will work best for your
type of ulcer.
You could choose to stay with your doctor for drug therapy,
or you could decide to go for a natural alternative, like
Matula Herbal Formula, which is guaranteed to remove H. pylori.
Donít ever feel obligated to stick with your doctor for treatment
as well, just because he has given you a diagnosis. And donít
ever be pushed into drug therapy or surgery. Take some
time to check out other avenues first!

Methods of Diagnosis
Endoscopy is an accurate form of diagnosis for ulcers. An
endoscope is a long, flexible tube with an attached camera.
It is threaded down your throat and esophagus into your stomach
and duodenum. Using the camera, your doctor can view your
digestive tract and stomach cavity and see if there are any
A small sample (biopsy) is taken from the lining of your stomach
and small intestine during an endoscopy. While the diagnosis
is very accurate for ulcers, the results from the tests performed
on a biopsy are not always consistent.

Your doctor may begin your diagnosis with an X-ray Ė this will
show an outline of your esophagus, stomach and duodenum. Prior
to the X-ray picture being taken, you will be asked to swallow
a white liquid, called barium or barium meal. This forms a coating
on your digestive tract and makes an ulcer more visible on the
X-ray can only detect some ulcers, but not all. X-rays cannot
detect the presence of any H. pylori bacteria.
This often used test offers a fairly accurate diagnosis of your
stomach ulcer. It is non-invasive which is a good thing for
more sensitive patient, but it is also very expensive.
It involves using a radioactive carbon atom to detect H. pylori
bacteria. What happens is that your first breath is captured
and sealed in a small plastic bag. You then have to drink a
small glass of liquid containing radioactive carbon as part
of a substance (urea) that will be broken down by H. pylori.
Thirty minutes later, a second breath sample is captured. If
your second breath sample contain the radioactive carbon in
the form of carbon dioxide, then this indicates that you may
be infected with H. pylori.
As mentioned, this a very expensive test, and our research has
shown that the results can be inconsistent. This has been proved
when running a breath test concurrently with an HPSA
test on the same patient.
A blood test checks for the presence of H. pylori antibodies,
not for the bacteria itself. The biggest disadvantage of this
test is that it can't differentiate between
past infection and current status.
Even after H. pylori bacteria have been eradicated, H. pylori
antibodies may sometimes still be present in the blood for 12
- 18 months after a successful treatment. This means that you
will test positive when you are actually negative.
of this, Blood Testing is considered to be the most
inconclusive test that can be used to determine
if a treatment has been successful or not. It will only be
accurate in terms of proving that you have been infected in
A Blood Test does not
provide a definitive result
on the actual status of H. pylori.
This is because antibodies remain in the blood
for between 12 to 18 months after the H.pylori
bacterium has been successfully eradicated.
DO NOT USE THIS H. pylori
test AFTER you have been treated!
Stool antigen test ( HPSA)
This super-accurate test checks to see if substances that
trigger the immune system to fight an H. pylori infection
(H. pylori antigens) are present in your feces (stool).
This is the only test that delivers an accurate account of
your current H. pylori status. If the H. pylori bacteria is
NOT detected after treatment, then this is accurate proof
that the treatment has been successful. ELISA HPSA test is
the most advanced and accurate test available, and is the
recognized benchmark test used in this field.
It is the only test that provides CONCLUSIVE
proof of the presence of H. pylori bacteria.
After extensive research in
this field, our view is that the HPSA Test is the least invasive
and delivers the most accurate and most conclusive results.
