Breath Test

The breath test is a medical test that is performed on patients suspected of Helicobacter pylori infection. This bacteria is found in the walls of the stomach, and is the main cause of chronic gastritis and gastroduodenal ulcers. Its detection through this simple test allows an appropriate treatment for the elimination of the bacteria or the control of the same post-treatment.

It is also possible to detect this bacteria through blood and stool tests.
