H. pylori (short for helicobacter pylori) is a type of bacteria from the stomach that mostly impacts your digestive system. If you start to have symptoms of ulcers, you will probably get tested for infection from H. pylori. If not treated, H. pylori infection can cause stomach ulcers by invading the inner lining of your stomach which protects you from stomach acid. This can cause unwanted pain and irritation as well as ultimately lead to cancer of the stomach if untreated. If you are having painful GI symptoms like stomach pain, you may have an H. pylori infection and need to be evaluated by a skilled GI specialist. You can find an expert GI professional near you at Digestive Health Associates of Texas in Dallas, TX

H. pylori usually gets in the body from food, unclean water, or dirty utensils. It is usually more typical to find H. pylori in countries or locations that have bad water quality and sewage systems. Keep in mind, however, that everybody can perhaps be exposed. You could become infected if you come in contact with an infected person’s saliva or other bodily fluids. If H. pylori enters your system, you can experience the below symptoms:

  • Burping
  • Pain in the stomach
  • Abdominal pain when on an empty stomach
  • Nausea
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Bloating
  • Loss of appetite
  • Burning pain in your abdominal area

I was taken care of with great professionalism, courtesy and respect. All the staff went above and beyond to make me comfortable and attended to at all times. I asked a lot of questions and got straight forward and clear answers to all of them. I never felt rushed, and the doctor Stuart Akerman was very knowledgeable and instilled a lot of trust. I have high confidence in his treatment and skills, my experience couldn’t be better. He tells you exactly how things are and his recommendations. Very pleased.

This is a recommendation from my mother, a current patient of Dr Brown's: The greatest experience I've ever had at a facility!! Thank you Diana at Dr. Kenneth Browns office for the recommendation to Gateway Diagnostics for my CT and all Dr. Brown's office at DHAT for working so hard to help me save my life. I had my CT today to see what else could be wrong. I have such respect and love for both the great team at Dr Browns office and also the wonderful people at Gateway Diagnostics. They treated everyone, all patients, not just myself with such kindness, feeling, and respect, I haven't seen in years. Each persons problem was acknowledged and at that time, they were the most important person in the building, and I've worked in medicine in 15 years, so I know. That is something you never see anymore. If anyone ever needs help, I'd be proud to recommend Dr Brown without question!!

ABSOLUTELY love her!!! I have so many debilitating diseases and been to the Mayo Clinic twice. This doc came from a referral and I finally feel like something is getting done. It's hard to find a doc with good bed side manners and that is great at what they do. She went in checking for everything instead of having me go back and forth draining my wallet... Her personality is upbeat, bed side manners are super and the list goes on... LOVE LOVE LOVE HER!!! BTW....It says a lot when other doctors use her for their care in this arena....

He was personable, warm, easily accessible. He was comprehensive in both the potential good and bad outcomes of the scope.
