I note from posts that many of us are given stomach medications ostensibly to “ to protect the stomach”. In fact these PPI’s, omeprazole, lansoprazole, etc. act on the liver to reduce the amount of acid produced. In my case they induced fundic polyps to form on the stomach lining and I had to discontinue them. Incidentally a new cardiologist discontinued my clopidogrel leaving aspirin as my only blood thinner. Now a new trial has questioned the use of aspirin finding it ineffective in outcomes and causing increased internal bleeding. What are everyone’s thoughts on this.
