Treatment and eradication of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection has become an increased topic of interest as related to Type 2 diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance, and associated treatment regimens. This case report presents a 65-year-old overweight male (LG). LG sought medical care and nutrition counseling to address Type 2 Diabetes. H. pylori infection was also treated. Protocol & Results: LG’s supplement and dietary protocol included nutrient replenishment and fortification, targeted antimicrobial and ROS reduction, and increased glycemic control, which all contributed to reducing inflammatory processes from both exogenous sources and endogenous manufacture. LG’s treatment protocols demonstrate an overall remarkable recovery as indicated by biomarkers (anthropometric and lab values) and reports of marked overall improved vitality. Improvement appears to be directly correlated to decreased measures of weight, blood pressure, fasting glucose and HgA1C, ferritin, and other measures. Additions of lifestyle interventions including mindfulness exercises, vagal nerve stimulation, increased exercise, and intermittent fasting likely synergized anti-inflammatory effects, especially with increased immune effect to assist in GI infection fighting. Conclusions: The results support eradication of H. pylori as a component of the nutrition and lifestyle intervention of Type 2 Diabetes. Additional research is needed to further identify the components of successful treatment regimens.
