In episode 157, James and Mike discuss the latest study of H pylori eradication in patients with functional dyspepsia. We discuss what to do in patients who come in with dyspeptic symptoms and when to scope, when to test, when to treat, when to say you aren’t taking any new patients. At the end we decide, to bring in another Mike (Kolber) for a future podcast to help put the whole issue into its proper perspective.
