HPylori

i only learned about HPylori today andcan't find answers to my queries on here. I'm part way through a severe gluten contamination (caused by my supplements? I really hope my ABX are gluten free!) I find I match the symptoms of HPolari, as well as those of CPn! Anyhow, all I ask is will the Wheldon protocol kill it? are gluten free supplements and ABX available?

DX MS 2008,symptoms  began  2000 or 2001. Daily Doxy and Roxy, Monthly Metro 5 day pulse.

Jane, according to the Center for Disease Control in the States, 10 days to two weeks of your choice of any two of the antibotics used for this treatment will get rid of h pylori:

As for gluten, I doubt if any supplements or antibiotics contain gluten as a filler, because nobody who is gluten intolerant would be able to take them.  I looked up a site with recommendations for coeliac disease, and people with coeliac disease have to avoid gluten completely, and I saw now worries about gluten being sneaked in where it shouldn't be:

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Thank you, for this Sarah ... and for being wise!  The more I read, the more I think I may the infection, but I don't want to be a hypochondriac, so I'll carry on, as normal. I realise that my glutened symptoms may, in fact, be a reaction to the ABX and, ,although unpleasant, temporary. When I've completed pulses 3 or 4 I think I'll take a 2 or 3 week pulse of Metro.  Maybe it'll help!

Thank you DW. If my stomach problems disappear, I'll let you know.  As the problems I have, seem familial, expected and something that would never stop normal life, however painful, it does seem  sense, to me, who has absolutely zero medical knowledge,  that this pathogen could have been transmitted from my Dad who, in turn, would have caught it from his Mother. But, as Dad was a much older Father, born 1908, I can't go much further back, all I know is his grandparents died young, in the late 1800's!

I’m no expert on Helicobacter pylori infection, but the C. pneumoniae antibiotic regimen would seem to cover it.

D W - [Myalgia and hypertension (typically 155/95.) Began (2003) taking doxycycline and macrolide and later adding metronidazole. No medication now. Morning BP typically 110/75]

Jane, I might be making a  wild guess here, especially not knowing exactly what your stomach problems are, but you are taking plenty of probiotics, aren't you?  You need to take them every day, two hours apart from any antibiotics.  A good combination is one containing saccharomyces boulardii, which I still take every day.  You can buy them from Amazon, and they are sold as gluten free...........................Sarah

Hi Sarah,

yes, I take Bio-Kult, 4 tablets,at least, per day,  since I began ABX, at least 2 before the protocol, but that's only been for the last couple of years. I only remember those issues beginning after my appendectomy, when I was 13, but, in those days, it wasn't  considered a major issue, soon after that IBS became the standare diagnosis, that's why I was 46 before I discovered I'm gluten intolerant!
