Helicobacter Pylori is a type of bacterium that causes stomach infections, which are usually asymptomatic. This infection affects about two-thirds of the world’s population; the main source of contamination is water and food.
If left untreated, the infection may cause peptic ulcer and, in extreme cases, even stomach cancer. The presence of the bacteria in the stomach is difficult to detect without proper medical diagnostic tools.
How can you find out if you are infected?
H. Pylori may cause symptoms such as bloating, stomach pains and heartburn, esophageal reflux, constipation, diarrhea, flatulence and discomfort in the upper and middle parts of the abdomen.
Of course, the above symptoms may also signal other digestive problems. In any case, however, the presence of the bacteria hinders the process of calorie burning and, implicitly, weight loss.
