HERNANDEZ ORTEGA, Ania; SANCHEZ CRUZ, Julio César and UMPIERREZ GARCIA (2), Ibis. Frequency of Helicobacter pylori in diabetics Type 2. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.5, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1684-1824.
Helicobacter pylori is a bacteria related with the peptic ulcerous disease, the adenocarcinoma, the gastric MALT lymphoma and other extradigestive diseases, diabetic mellitus Type 2 among them, where the lack of infection possibly implies a higher concentration of the ghrelin hormone which would stimulate appetite in persons who would develop overweight, metabolic syndrome and diabetes. With the objective of determining the influence of this infection in diabetic people type 2, we carried out a descriptive study in the Gastroenterology Service of the Territorial Teaching Hospital Dr. Mario Muñoz Monroy, municipality of Colon, during the period 2006-2008. We analysed variables like age, genre, and presence of the bacteria, among others, by mean of histological study and Fast Urease Test, on samples of gastric mucosa obtained by endoscopy of the Upper Digestive Tract. The results showed that 70 % of diabetic patients were not infected, and most of the patients with histological diagnosis of chronic gastritis were negative to Helicobacter pylori (67,9 %). We concluded that the infection by Helicobacter pylori, is less frequent in diabetic patients Type 2.
