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.
