Treatment for H. pylori can include:

  • antibiotics to kill the bacteria
  • medications to suppress acid production, including:
  • H2-blockers, to reduce the amount of acid the stomach produces by blocking
  • histamine, a powerful stimulant of acid secretion.
  • proton pump inhibitors, to more completely block stomach acid production by stopping the stomach's acid pump
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
