I thought perhaps you would like to read this article about the use of PPIs. (I've used this link as it is "free-to-air")
It isn't just bone density that may be affected by long term use of omeprazole and its little friends that our doctors are so keen we should take.
"Available evidence suggests that PPI use is associated with
an increased risk of both acute and chronic kidney disease, hypomagnesemia, C difficile infection, and osteoporotic fractures. Caution in prescribing PPIs should be used in patients at high risk for any of these conditions. Given the association with kidney disease and low magnesium levels, serum creatinine and magnesium levels should probably be monitored in patients using PPIs, especially those using high doses.
Given the evidence that PPI use is linked with a number of adverse outcomes, we recommend that patients and clinicians discuss the potential benefits and risks of PPI treatment, as well as potential alternative regimens such as histamine H2 receptor antagonists or lifestyle changes, before PPIs are prescribed."
There will be people for whom it is worth it but there are alternatives and others should consider them. And those who MUST have a PPI should be monitored.
