just back from Gastro follow up, told I have H.Pylori and mild Gastric Atrophy, BUT, do not have Pernicious Anaemia even with positive Intrinsic Factor Antibodies and positive Parietal Cell Antibodies.
Gasro prescribed PPI to take with Antibiotics, but surely I have low stomach acid not high ? or is the PPI to help Antibiotics work ?
I am glad I decided to SI 3 months ago ( with good results on symptoms ) otherwise it would have been a wait of over 6 months since GP said I had PA ( but did not have anaemia ) until now !!
My question to our experts out there is, can the H.Pylori be the cause of the positive antibodies results, and if H.Pylori is eradicated will the Parietal Cells repair and IFA repair meaning no Pernicious Anaemia ?
