Helicobacter pylori, or H. pylori, is a specific type of bacteria that is found in your stomach. It affects your digestive system and usually doesn't make patients ill. However, if you begin showing signs of ulcers, you should get tested for H. pylori infection. If this condition remains untreated, an H. pylori infection can cause stomach ulcers by attacking the inner lining of your stomach which protects you from stomach acid. This could lead to pain and distress and, if it is left untreated, it can cause stomach cancer. If you are having troubling gastrointestinal symptoms like stomach pain, you could have an H. pylori infection and should be evaluated by a skilled GI specialist. You can consult with a GI provider near you at your closest Digestive Health Center location in Thibodaux, LA

Helicobacter pylori can infect your body by way of food, unclean water, or dirty utensils. It is common to find H. pylori in countries or locations that have low water quality and sewage systems. Keep in mind, however, that everybody is at risk. You can become infected if you come in contact with someone who has H. pylori infection, through spit or other bodily fluids. If the H. pylori bacteria has infected your body, you can expect the following symptoms:

After being under the care of Dr. Monier, for whom I have total confidence, I saw Megan, the nurse practioner for follow-up. I found her to be very thorough and very caring.

Dr. Duplechain’s staff is so awesome! I was a little worried about my procedure, but the receptionist, nurses and anesthetist put me at ease. Leslie stayed with me until I was sent back. Her kindness was greatly appreciated!
