Taking a PPI for a couple years now on a daily basis due to non erosive gastritis. Recent dexa scan shows 5.4% decrease in the values within the lumbar spine and 9.7% decrease in the values within the total left hip. These are significant. Previous dexa scan was 2 years prior and normal. Could it be from taking PPI? Is there a way I can get off the PPI, re: an alkaline diet? Concerned about the bone loss... Mom had osteoporosis.

I am suffering from gastric reflux due to which I have a very bad throat for the last 6 months. Have been on PPI twice a day for last 5 months and have done lifestyle changes like eating small meals, not lying down after meals, eating last meal at least 3 and half hrs before bed, not eating any trigger foods that cause acidity like tomatoes, fried chic mint etc. in spite of above line of treatment my throat is always irritated and feels like a permanent burn in my throat. Laryngoscopy showed congested arytenoids.i don t know what else I can do and am worried about side effects of taking PPI for so long. Also I don t see how this problem can be resolved at all or do I have to live like this for the rest of my life? Pls help. By the way I never had any symptoms of reflux like heartburn etc, except I had felt two or three episodes 6months ago of food coming upto my throat after meals.

My father is 64 years old, he underwent PPI due to slow heart rate in Dec 2008. he is known HTN, and DVT in left leg (since 2000). he was also discovered with VT & hypothyroidism in 2008 for which he has been using medicines cardarone 100mg (alternate days), selomax 50 (5 days/week), warf 5 mg 5 days & 2 mg 2 days a week,rosuvas 10 mg(daily), thyronorm 50 mg. recently he was admitted in hospital due to SOB and discomfort. the device checkup revealed high heart beat around 115-120. He was kept in hopital in HDU to bring down the heart rate around 90-98. ECG concluded mildly dilated LV with global hypokinesia & severe LV systolic dysfunction (EF ~32%), grade IIIdiastolic (E/E 15). When doctor advised to undergo TEE, my father went for test and could not test as he found insertion of pipe caused breathing problem and inconvenience so he got scared and did not want to go for that test. At this point He was discharged from hospital saying discharged on patients request. he is prescribed with Acitrom 2 mg, cardarone 200 mg, thyronorm 50 mg, digoxin 0.25 mg, lasix 10 mg,Telma 40mg daily morning and rosuvas 10mg daily night. Though we came back home we are always worrying on the situation and we are unsure whether situation is really bad or fine. After 10 days we did PT Inr and result is 39.1 sec pt, Inr 3.03, control 13.2 s. I would like an advise what would be right action at this time, also suggest precautions
