Well I finally got to SEE the actual test results.
They rate things on a 0-4 scale, with 4 being 'heavy' presence.
Keeping in mind that my symptoms do not qualify for IBS since I don't have diarrhea/constipation, just sever pain with extreme hunger, what do you think of the 'bacteria' count coming in as a TWO (2)?
The symptoms fit HPylori, which is the only one that does not have those two symptoms along with the stomach distress, and even though the presence of some of that is considered normal, wouldn't 0 have been normal and 2 mean elevated?
In the latest battery of tests, I see HP is at least there, along with other things that tell me she is on a fishing expedition for UT infections, DHEA (hahahaha I have not had a period in 20 years so that's out) and RA
(Rheumatioid Arthritis) !
I also scored a 1 on Mucus so even though I did not see any, that would be the result of the irritation of the excess of the bacteria.
If this does not come back positive for HP I won't know what to think.
The fact that cinnammon, garlic, ginger and cloves all help me, tells me it's that type of pathogen.
But who am I to know, he told me NOT to eat any of those things.
