Acid suppression therapy is very common—even among those who do not have a medically indicated need. Data from a 6-year follow-up study show those using proton-pump inhibitors (PPI) found a 1.25 increased risk of death from all causes when compared to those using histamine-2 receptor antagonists (H2). Another study found PPI use is associated with higher risk of chronic kidney disease, also.
LifeTip: Exercise judicious caution in the use of PPIs and do not use them for vague complaints of heartburn or dyspepsia.
