Helicobacter pylori infection as well as an inflammation of the stomach lining can lead to vitamin B12 deficiency. Different studies showed that most of the cases of B12 deficiency have been reversed by treating an underlying cause, H. pylori infection in your case.

Now, this infection could be very hard to treat, as you have already seen because the bacteria live behind the stomach's layer of protective mucus. The treatment usually consists of prescribing multiple-drug (antibiotics) treatment and it could take a lot of time until you are free of the infection. This bacterium seems to be resistant to many drugs and this and incomplete treatment are two main causes of failing to eradicate the organisms from the body.
Patients are usually treated with triple therapy and if it fails, quadruple therapy is introduced. If the quadruple therapy fails, patients are usually sent to the gastroenterologist.
