Initial Poor Quality of Life and New Onset Dyspepsia
Given that digestive problems are strongly related to lifestyle, the results of this study are not surprising. We know that probiotics help with H. pylori infection and it is likely that destruction of normal flora sets up the H. pylori infection in the first place. Lower levels of Vit C contribute. Stress greatly contributes. All these factors that can contribute to dyspepsia would also contribute to other health related problems.
That doesn’t even take into account what happens when we suppress gastric acid production with drugs. The bottom line is that dyspepsia needs to be addressed w/ lifestyle changes for the best results.
