H. Pylori Update

Because H. Pylori is the most common chronic bacterial pathogen world wide and affects 50% of the world's population, it should be a constant topic of health-related discussions.  What is particularly interesting is that while most people are aware of the bacteria being associated with stomach problems (ulcer, heartburn, reflux), it seems most people are not aware of the symptoms outside the gastrointestinal tract that the bacteria may be associated with.  Very recent studies have continued to associate the bacteria with migraine headaches and also diabetes.  Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths among both men and women in the US, and it appears that H. Pylori is associated with the risk of developing this cancer.  Considering that Hashimoto's thyroiditis is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the US, being aware of the correlation between H. Pylori and Hashimoto's becomes very important in trying to look more at cause.
