Antacid Drugs Increase Risk of Hip Fractures and Weak Bones

A large study has found that taking stomach acid blocking drugs (Aciphex, Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Protonix), increases the risk of osteoporosis and bone fracture. People over 50 who took these drugs for more than one year had a 44% increased risk of breaking a hip and higher doses for longer periods more than doubled their risk. Blocking stomach acid impairs calcium and mineral absorption leading to weak bones. If you or someone you know uses these drugs we have natural medicine alternatives that are worth exploring. (Journal of the American Med Assoc. 2006;296:2947-53)
