    I have a duodenal ulcer. What caused this?

    The gastric or duodenal ulcer may be as a result of an infection in the stomach caused by a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) or by taking aspirin or arthritis-treating medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.  The most common type of therapy used to treat H. pylori now includes two antibiotics plus a PPI drug. It is important that all the pills be taken as scheduled in order to obtain the greatest chance of eliminating the bacteria.
