Just saw a story last night on CBS news about
proton pump inhibitors blocking the absorption of calcium and leading to osteoporosis and eventual hip fractures in people who use them long term. The story was based on a news release from the Journal of American Medicine entitled ACID SUPPRESSION MEDICATION LINKED WITH INCREASED RISK OF HIP FRACTURE
. It was primarily concerned with the high death rates associated with the elderly and hip fractures. Just wanted to share this info for those in a position to make medication decisions.
