Acid Reflux Medication Related To Esophageal Cancer
The Cause Could Be Drug Use For An Extended Period
Proton-pump Inhibitors (PPIs) are among the most prescribed drugs for acid reflux. A recent study has linked it with kidney malfunction. Now, another study has related it to esophageal cancer. PPIs are used to protect the stomach lining and to treat the bacterial infection H. pylori. Additional studies are targeting patients that have used PPIs for an extended period of time, lining them to bone fractures, B12 vitamin deficiency, dementia, and heart attack, among others.
