Objective: Demonstration of an influence of Helicobacter pylori in the dramatic spread of Diabetes mellitus (DM) among many patients during the last two decades. Background: The flare up of a lot of medical challenges related to H. pylori through immune or different unknown reasons made the medical world believe that H. pylori eradication should be a necessary attempt. These H. pylorirelated medical problems are sufficient to render the matter that H. pylori can reside hidden somewhere in the body be taken seriously. The spread of DM is rising in a dramatic way as the fire spreading in hey especially in developing countries giving the term "diabetic epidemic" an actual credibility. H. pylori could migrate or get forced to migrate to the colon leading to accumulation of profuse toxic amounts of ammonia unopposed or buffered by any acidity leading to biological stress to the body that could predispose to stress diabetes among disadvantaged susceptible people. Design: Prospective study. Setting: Balghsoon Clinic, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Patients & Methods: 18 cases of newly discovered DM associated with a definite history of H. pylori dyspepsia were included in this study. The study was held in Balghsoon Clinic in Jeddah during the period between May, 2011 and October, 2013. Traditional measures were used for the relief of dyspeptic symptoms, eradication of H. pylori, colon care and colon clear. Results: All patients expressed dramatic relief of their dyspeptic symptoms and the diabetic condition has been successfully and permanently corrected in 16 patients. Conclusion: In the light of the accurate determination of recent findings and statistics, a revision of the current guidelines for the management of H. pylori and newly discovered DM may be needed. It may be incorrect that the current world's burden of DM is on the account of type II diabetes. It seems that the antibiotic violence has obliged a domestic bug to become wild in sequels instead of getting rid of it.
