Patient’s Guide: Diet and Lifestyle in Peptic Ulcer Disease



Diet may provide noxious agents which increase the pathogenicity of H. pylori, or protective agents that hamper their activity. The scope of this chapter is to elaborate on how dietary modulations and lifestyle habits can affect the course of H. pylori infection. We depict the role of several dietary components that may protect against the pathological consequences of H. pylori infection, and thus improve patient’s eradication therapy. Considering H. pylori as a strong and established risk factor of peptic ulcer, we also provide evidence between dietary exposure and the probability of tumor formation and/or prevention.
