    Not to the best of my knowledge. I shall explain. Even though you may be aware of some or most of the following details, there may be details contained in my discussion that you are not aware of. Whilst helicobacter pylori -H. pylori - infection is the most common chronic bacterial infection in humans, the bacterial infection causing pyelonephritis - Escherichia coli. Staphylococcus saprophyticus. Proteus mirabilis. Klebsiella pneumoniae - may sometimes develop elsewhere in the body and travel through the bloodstream to the kidney. Far more commonly, however, the infection is the result of bacteria from outside the body traveling back up the urinary stream through the urethra to the bladder and eventually to the kidneys, in which case it is known as an ascending infection. This may explain why women, whose urethras are short and in close proximity to the anus, a potential source of bacteria, have four times as many cases of pyelonephritis as men. H. Pylori infection is the single most reported responsible factor for dyspepsia by the studies that investigated the causes of this complaint in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. However the bacteria is not considered to be the causative organism in pyelonephritis.


    It is extremely important to obtain an accurate diagnosis before trying to find a cure. Many diseases and conditions share common symptoms.
