Common bacteria may cause colic

Image
A bacteria that is known to be associated with more than 80% of gastric and doudenal ulcers, may be associated with infant colic. The bacteria, Helicobacter Pylori (H.pylori), is found in the lining of the of the stomach wall.

Dr. Abdelrazak Mansour Ali from Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt evaluated 55 infants diagnosed with colic. Dr. Ali used a stool antigen test to determine if the babies were infected with H.pylori. Among the 55 infants with colic, 45 (81.8%) tested positive for H pylori. In the control group, only 7% of the babies tested positive for H.pylori.

The control group was comprised of 30 healthy babies who were matched by country of origin, age, sex, and ethnicity to the 55 babies diagnosed with colic. The babies in the control group did not have colic.

Colic is when an otherwise healthy baby cries for more than 3 hours per day, more than 3 days per week. This is more extreme than the daily fussy period. To be diagnosed with colic, the pediatrician confirms that the crying is not the result of an illness, trauma, or surgical emergency.
