Eradicating H. pylori can positively affect insulin resistance and may prevent CAD

Eradicating H. pylori can positively affect insulin resistance and may prevent CADA prospective, open-label study of 159 patients showed the beneficial effects of H. pylori eradication on insulin resistance, atherogenic lipid abnormalities and low-grade inflammation. The results suggest that HP eradication may prevent coronary artery disease and metabolic syndrome. For assessing H. pylori infection, Urea Breath Testing (UBT) has been shown to be the most accurate and fastest non-invasive diagnostic test.
