Interesting side effect of PPI use---earlier heart and now possibly kidney.
Any thoughts--comments.

It will be interesting to see the true effect of ppi's in like 20 years from now. I'm sure they'll be more studies coming out like this saying how bad ppi's really are for you. If zantacs works... Stick with that.

Hi TheSixness,
I'll be a case study, since I've been on them 20 years.  So far so good, as far as I can see...I get plenty of medical care and testing, and nothing unusual or negative has been uncovered to this point.
