Methods: This is a prospective observational study, from January 2022 - June 2022 involving 100 patients. Patient?s socio demographic and clinical data were recorded in a predesigned profoma. Results: Prevalence was found to be 50% and was high in the age >51 years and females have higher prevalence than male. Heart burn was most common symptom. Based on endoscopic features gastritis predominates more in the population. According to treatment regimen, HP kit had a greater significance in eradicating the organism. The study shows that H.

If people are reluctant to do the test it will lead to serious complications like gastric cancers.
