ABSTRACT
Despite the significant impact on NHS resources due to long term proton pump inhibitor (PPI) prescribing in primary care, little research exists concerning quality of life (QOL) in these patients. Objectives of this study is to ascertain the QOL in patients on long term PPI therapy and determine any differences between Helicobacter pylori positive and negative patients. H. pylori does not influence dyspepsia symptoms in patients on long term PPIs. However, reflux symptoms appear to be more severe in the H. pylori negative patients who also rated their overall health much worse compared with the positives.
