H. pylori (Helicobacter Pylori) is a bacteria that commonly infects the digestive system and can damage the protective lining of the small intestine and stomach. This bacteria is thought to be present in 4 in 10 people in the UK. It often causes no harm but is strongly associated with gastric (stomach) ulcers and those of the duodenum (start of the small bowel). It is estimated that about 15% of people with H. pylori infection will go on to develop an ulcer.
The test is suitable for adults over 18 years old, and is used in people experiencing symptoms of a digestive disorder as testing and treatment may help avoid serious complications.
