Helicobacter Pylori Test

Randalstown Pharmacies provide a specialist 13C-Urea Breath Test for Helicobacter pylori, a relatively harmless bacterium present in the human digestive system and which can cause health problems for some people

H. pylori is prevalent in up to 54 per cent of the population in developed countries. For people with peptic ulcers, the discovery of H. pylori has been a major help in the treatment of their condition. Previously peptic ulcers could not be healed, and commonly recurred. Nowadays, if H. pylori is successfully treated ulcers seldom recur.

If you suffer from peptic ulcers and would like to learn more please contact a member of our Pharmacy Team. We will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
