Although my dd has no stomach upset unless she is sick, I requested a H. Pylori test and it was positive. (I requested this after reading about H.Pylori causing psychiatric issues.) Like many of you, she tends to test positive for all kinds of stuff, although is asymptomatic physically and suffers mentally. I'm guessing the H. Pylori and other gut issues are causing her autoimmune issues and food sensitivities. My questions would be - have any of you treated for H.Pylori and seen diminishment of intrusive thoughts or OCD? (She has multiple other problems, but just wondering if anyone had seen progress with H. Pylori treatment.) Should the whole family be tested? I've had IBS my whole life, and a "pre-ulcer" when I was in my 20's, but no one tested me for anything. Now I'm wondering if it was actually H. Pylori.
FASCINATING case study about a 16 yr. old boy presenting with neuropsych symptoms (severe, with hallucinations) All resolved with H. Pylori treatment and B12 injections. For those of you (like us) with the MTHFR C6677T snp, he had it also, and the psychiatrist noted that that mutation may have been why his symptoms presented differently than normal B12 deficiency signs. Also of note - if we have malabsorption issues, it's important to "bypass the pesky gut". (injections or sublingual...) At least until we can find out what types of gut problems we have, and FIX them! http://evolutionarypsychiatry.blogspot.com/2012/11/b12-deficiency-and-psychosis-case-study.html
