You may often have stomach symptoms that you blame on certain foods or stress. You may take over-the-counter medications to get some relief, but it doesn’t last long. If you have stomach symptoms that keep returning, it’s important to identify the root of the problem.
Up to 40% of adults in the United States suffer from dyspepsia (indigestion) each year, but fewer than 10% ever see their doctor about it.1
Figuring out the cause of stomach symptoms may not always be easy. Stomach problems such as heartburn, stomach inflammation (gastritis), indigestion (dyspepsia), and peptic ulcer all share similar
symptoms,2,3 including those listed below.
- BLOATING (FEELING TOO FULL)
- BELCHING / BURPING
- LOSS OF APPETITE
- PASSING GAS
- BAD BREATH
- GNAWING PAIN
You might think that the source of your symptoms is heartburn or indigestion, but the root cause may be something you haven’t considered: infection with Helicobacter pylori (pronounced hell-ee-ko-back-ter pie-lore-ee) or H. pylori.
