I just wanted to ask those who use DGL daily, are you sure it doesn't cause any side effects? This may sounds strange and I don't know if what happened to me in the past is related to my DGL use but about a year ago while I was taking it before meals, I started developing pigment problems on my face. It is hard to explain but they are areas that looked freckled but not natural freckling. One dermatologist wasn't sure if DGL could cause it but didn't rule it out because she said plants can have strange effects on the body. The areas never went away. I stopped the DGL and saw no other signs of it. I did begin using sunscreen daily. The reason I'm asking about this is because I would really like to try DGL again. I was on Aciphex but I find I don't sleep as well with it. I've tried all the other PPI's with no luck. The Aciphex was the best. When I had my last doctor's appointment he advised I start taking drug holidays because a new study was released that said long term use of PPI's is linked to osteoporosis. He said taking off on weekends or 1 week a month would be good. That alone made me want to get off the PPI for good. I've tried all kinds of diet changes, etc. but no matter what I do I have heartburn/reflux. I had the PH test and it came back that I have a moderate case of it. Anyway, I would love to hear about your experiences with DGL.
