Well a h.pylori infection patient should avoid fatty foods.
They should take food rich in vitamin.A and vit.C.
* They should be provided with lean protein diet.
* Fruits are rich in anti oxidants.
Like strawberries, blueberries.
* Green vegetables like spinach, broccoli, etc.
There is no correct diet for HP per se.
It is an infection and needs to be Treated.
Usually treatment is High dose PPI and Antibiotics, (which I suspect the Gastroenterologist who found the HP would have already prescribed)
If the patient is already on those medications then you can advice any normal, balanced diet (including fruits and veggies). Can add yogurt / probiotics if having diarrhea.
If the patient had an ulcer because of HP, then avoid Spicy / High fat meals , at-least for 2-3months.
I dont think every indian h.pylori patient should be treated with antibiotics unless patient is having gastritis or ulcers with h.pylori proved to be the cause. even if treated h.pylori will be found again after few weeks as it is very common in india.
By common i mean h pylori is present everywhere in indian environment and eventualy patient will be infected again within few weeks thats the reason to avoid treatment in asymptomatics .evry 2 out of 3 people in india have h pylori in their stomach.
