Your Frequent Burping Could Be a Sign of H. pylori Infection ,
Chronic Pain

Burping (belching) is a normal physiological function, as is passing gas (farting). However, excessive burping can cause discomfort and bloating. These symptoms are not only bothersome, but may indicate a severe underlying condition.

For example, it could be a sign of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacterial infection, leading to ulcers and cancer. Therefore, if you are experiencing excessive burping, you should see David P. Yamini so he can rule out or cure the infection.

What Exactly is a Burp, and What Causes It?

Belches contain carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen. They are your body’s method of expelling excess air from your upper digestive tract. They result from ingested air accumulating in your esophagus, the tube that connects the throat to the stomach. If caused by something else, the burps are often paired with additional symptoms like abdominal discomfort or heartburn. Such is the case with H. pylori infection.

What are H. pylori?

H. pylori are bacteria found in almost half of the world’s population, yet they rarely cause illness. Even though most people do not have symptoms of H. pylori infection, there are clues to check for if you are not feeling okay. An H. pylori infection can cause abdominal pain, nausea, lack of appetite, bloating, abrupt and unexpected weight loss and frequent burping.

These symptoms warrant a doctor’s visit and antibiotics prescription. However, since H. pylori symptoms are similar to those of other gastrointestinal diseases, you should consult an experienced gastroenterologist like Dr. Yamini. He provides excellent diagnosis and treatment for H. pylori infection in those living in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica or the surrounding areas.

Do not hesitate to seek Dr. Yamini’s guidance because complications from H. pylori infection can be severe, including peptic ulcers, gastritis and even stomach cancer. You may have a severe H. pylori infection and peptic ulcers if you are experiencing bloody vomit, bloody stool, problems swallowing and excessive burping. These symptoms mean you need immediate attention.

Scheduling was extremely easy with Dr. Yamini's staff, I scheduled my Tuesday appointment on Monday afternoon. The staff and Dr. Yamini were courteous and straightforward - even with new patient paperwork I was out the door within an hour!

Dr. Yamini definitely is a great doctor who is very thorough and detail oriented with his diagnosis. He is very passionate about what he does and was able to answer any question or concern. He took his time before my appointment to look through all the documentation to know exactly what was going on. He definitely was able to put me at ease even though I was very worried. I am very satisfied with his services. Thanks!

Mario O.

He was very gentle about my situation yet did not fail to emphasize about the seriousness that could arise from gastrointestinal problems. Few and far between are as professional and caring as Dr. Yamini and his staff. I was 20 minutes late on Friday evening & they still had me in a room in 5 minutes as a new patient.

I can’t say enough great things about my first impression of this doctor and his amazing staff! They got me right in and set me up for everything needed. I’ve been looking for the right GI doctor for years having had a very negative experience with another doctor years ago. Dr. Yamini is not only professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and experienced... this guy is “cool” and nice too! His front desk person, Toni was amazing! She was kind, bright, efficient, patient, and positive! ??

Makes talking about uncomfortable subjects a breeze. Competent and honest: doesn't sell vitamin cleanses and his own probiotics or anything like that. Makes sure your symptoms aren't half-fixed but fully fixed. Gets to the heart of the issue quickly. Good listener. Very sweet receptionist. I hate receiving many phone calls, and she's persistent about making sure you set up an appointment; it was stressing me out. I found the her much easier to connect with once she gave me her cell and said to text.

Babak E.

Thank you Dr. Yamini and Tony. When it comes to patient care and professionalism, I have never received this much care and attention from a physician and the staff. I was able to talk to Dr. Yamini for good period of time allowing me to ask all my questions. Tony you are so cute thank you for scheduling me in last minute.

Kyle K.

I highly recommend Dr. Yamini. He's very personable and actually listens to your issues and concerns, then recommends a reasonable course of action. He was able to properly diagnose my symptoms and get me healthy again. Also his admin Toni is great too, she will help select a facility and verify that your insurance will fully cover. She's really nice and trustworthy as well!

Eric W.

Thorough doctor who cares about his patients, and very meticulous about the details of your ailment. Clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. No wait time for appointments, and the nurse (Toni) is very friendly and follows up appropriately. One of the best doctor experiences I've had and I'd recommend it to anyone.
