Dyspepsia

Many people consult their GP for upper gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, which are often associated with pain or burning and discomfort in the abdomen and range from heartburn and acid regurgitation to nausea and vomiting. The symptoms can cause problems with a person’s physical and social activities and are generally related to the consumption of food and drink. Historically, all of these symptoms have been grouped together under the single term ‘dyspepsia’ or poor digestion. Dyspepsia is defined as having one or more symptoms of epigastric pain, burning, postprandial fullness, or early satiation. One common cause of serious stomach complaints is infection with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) which can be acquired at a young age and colonize the stomach mucosa permanently in the absence of treatment . In nearly half of the H. pylori infected cases gastritis develops over the years into atrophic gastritis (loss of glands and function of the stomach mucosa), which is most common in people aged over 50 years . Quest Diagnostics (UK) has been offering the GastroPanel assays from Biohit Oyj (Laippatie 1, 08800, Helsinki, Finland) for those patients who have been referred to the walk-in clinic at the Upper Wimpole Street Laboratory complaining of ‘dyspepsia’.
