BreathTek<sup>®</sup> UBT for <span class="hpylori-bold">H. pylori</span> Can Help Confirm That the<br /> Treatment Worked
Wait 4 Weeks
After being diagnosed with an H. pylori infection, you’ll most likely be prescribed antibiotics as treatment. Because antibiotics are prescribed often to cure infection, some bacteria have started to develop a resistance.1 So, in order to feel confident that your infection is cured, your doctor should retest you with BreathTek UBT no earlier than 4 weeks after completing eradication therapy.
Rule out potential future risks of long-term infection.
Because an extended H. pylori infection can cause other, sometimes serious stomach complications, it's important to be certain that the infection is cured; ask your doctor to retest you.
Benefits of confirming that you are cured:
- Ulcers are less likely to return once an H. pylori infection is cured.1
- Curing the infection is less expensive than staying on medicines to treat the symptoms.1-3
- You may reduce the risk of developing stomach cancer, especially if stomach cancer already runs in your family.1,4
