Helicobacter pylori: a bacterium troubles the stomach.
Early detection of Helicobacter pylori is crucial
It is important to identify the germ as early as possible, because if untreated for too long, the infection can lead to more serious disease and even to stomach ulcers. Therefore, when somebody suffers from heartburn, acid regurgitation or severe stomach pain, regular checks – for example in form of a self-test – can be recommended. A promptly initiated therapy with antibiotics is very effective and can prevent suffering.
