Urea Breath Test

Recommended Posts

I just took the Urea Breath test today and was wondering if anyone else has had it done. I still have slight stomach cramps (which I always thought was due to food poisoning) but now I have it more often. I also have problems with acid reflux or heart burn and bad breath. Not sure if these are symptoms of H. Pyloria.

I just read about it because I'm having a biopsy done for an ulcer tomorrow. They know I have the ulcer because I had a capsule endoscopy and it showed. I'll paste some links below with information about it. Sometimes it's the cheapest way for them to test you (i.e. no hospitalization, surgery, or anesthesia). Hope this helps!
