I've already done a lot of writing about H. Pylori. It's a particularly interesting bacteria to me for several reasons:
-It is the world's most common chronic bacterial pathogen (it infects 50% of the world's population).
-It can be difficult to get rid of and is often antibiotic resistant.
-It lower's hydrochloric acid production, thus leading to malabsorption of nutrients, such as vitamin B12 and protein.
-It has been correlated to hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's thyroiditis, the most common cause of hypothyroidism).
-It has been correlated to migraine headaches.
-It has been correlated to IBS.
We can now add fibromyalgia to the list of possible correlations:
We can also add gallbladder issues to the list of possible correlations:
