Just thought I would mention about the link between omeprazole and osteoporosis as the topic was raised a few weeks ago. Went to discuss results of my horrendous bone scan. And was.told that I have lost some bone density which.is a precursor to osteoporosis. So I need to be proactive and protect my bones. She told me I had to come off omeprazole as it will make matters worse and put me on ranitidine . Just last week my son was diagnosed with a rare kidney dieses which effects the bones. He also was taken off a different ppi and.given ranitidine. So there seems to be a link somewhere it would appear. Don't mean to frighten any one but knowledge is power in my book.
