Prilosec and nutrient absorption

Common Questions and Answers about Prilosec and nutrient absorption


Avatar f tn Does it really work? How long does it take it to work? And are there any noticeable changes at all the first few weeks. Before, I did take one pill when I was given the meds. A few hours after taking the medicine, my husband said something that got me angry, and I litterally went into a rage of banging on the kitchen table. It scared my husband, and I got to admit, I was frightened by it also. I never had this type of anger before.
1222076 tn?1423031349 The bile salt supplement compensates for what has been lost from the gall bladders removal, improving fat breakdown and helping some with nutrient absorption. Finally I know its not the popular opinion but consulting a nutritionist or someone who can look specifically at the disease process might be able to get you on a really good supplement regimen. It might seem like a minor thing but prescription drugs are just masking the true underlying issue.

1776879 tn?1314391127 As of today the only thing I am prescribed is a generic for flexaril (10 mg 3 times a day which doesn't work), prilosec for heart burn, and birth control (sprintec 28 day). I went to physical therapy and it made the pain in my back worse, so I have stopped going thus far. This is all I can think of thank you so much!
Avatar m tn Drug Resistance Genes Identifies drug resistance genes to help with patient treatment and health maintenance. Absorption Indicates absorption issues with elevated levels of long-chain fatty acids, cholesterol, or total fat (the sum of gut lipids). Secretory IgA Secretory IgA is the primary agent of mucosal immune defense. Deficiencies in SIgA may be associated with gastrointestinal inflammation, intestinal permeability and lowered resistance to infectious agents.
Avatar n tn They are life changing and all natural help break down your food and have help facilitate nutrient absorption. They do not cause any side effects if anything help alleviate the symptoms. Also a pro biotic will help all around. Pro Biotic is a good Bacteria I know sounds yucky for some people but part of indigestion is related to not eliminating the waste in your body properly or better yet your colon not having healthy level of Flora and this affects evereything in your body .
Avatar m tn The researchers used statistical techniques to focus solely on B12 levels and factor out the role of folic acid, a nutrient known to help prevent pregnant women from birthing babies with neural tube defects. The study authors noted that B12 and folate are jointly linked to several key biochemical reactions, but that a lack of either B12 or folate increased the risk of a neural tube defect.
Avatar n tn According to the NIH's Office of Dietary Supplements, proton-pump inhibitors, like omeprazole and lansoprazole, can inhibit B12 absorption, since stomach acid is necessary for the absorption of this nutrient. They recommend monitoring of B12 levels in people taking proton-pump inhibitors for prolonged periods of time. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, stomach acid enhances the absorption of iron from the small intestine.
Avatar f tn I don't understand why is my ft4 is increasing when I decreased the meds, I went down from 100mcg tirosint and 5 mcg cytomel to 88mch tirosint and 2.5 cytomel and even on this dose, i felt over medicated, with heart palps, jittery and feeling freezing cold after taking the meds. Prior to this decrease my TSH 0.4, FT4 - 1.24 (range 0.82-1.77), FT3 - 2.6 (range 2.0-4.4) before I started having issues with my gastritis and reflux.
Avatar m tn The 4 primary consequences of acid blocking drugs are increased bacterial overgrowth, impaired nutrient absorption, decreased resistance to infection, increased risk of cancer and other diseases. Excerpt from "Stomach Acid" by Jon Barron: "The bottom line here is that most people are very confused about the role stomach acid plays in health. Most people: Think they have too much, when in fact they have too little.
Avatar f tn The healthier your gut becomes, the better absorption. Some people try the elimination diet beginning with bland foods and adding to see how one feels. My hunch is once our selection of foods changes, it will really improve your life. I'll send you a message to help directly as I've lived through it all, both medically and naturopathic. Hang in there, there's about 6 percent of the population now with CFS/FM and more and more research is being done.
Avatar f tn I get what I guess is RLS as it is virtually impossible for me to go to sleep sometimes becasue my legs particlarly the right wants to draw up or ache, when I walk on the treadmill or use the eliptical my feet go numb, I have a toe (3) on my left foot that is more often than not numb and white, if i get even a little cold my hands and feet go numb and it takes forever to warm up.
1295419 tn?1276826472 Stomach acid is essential for nutrient absorption and to kill off bacteria, fungi, and parasites. If you have obstructive issues, then you need to correct it. Obstructive conditions include obesity, and hiatus hernia. My mother had GERD and LPR severely for 5 years. Now she doesn't. Stopped PPI nexium and OTC gaviscon. Started digestive enzyme supplements and betaine HCI with pepsin supplements. Corrected magnesium deficiency. She had non obstructive issues.

Avatar f tn gone in 2 years)(on prilosec) fibroids, low iron, headaches, numbness on the left side of face, neck pain, DIZZINESS....and the list goes on and on. I have been to dr. everyone guesses thyroid, runs test, and TSH comes in normal so they say no. Been to rhuematologist, nuerologist, ENT, and cardiologist. Had carotid artery scan (ok), ENG (borderline), MRI (ok) that list goes on.
Avatar m tn Maybe 6 to 8 weeks max. Decresing stomach acid can bring on poor nutrient absorption from food causing gas and general body weakness in some people. Have you been using Prilosec for a long time ?
Avatar m tn The sores burned excruciatingly and I started taking tums and Prilosec upon suspicion of reflux. One developed into a large aphthous ulcer that was larger than the eraser of a pencil.  Eventually this went away about two weeks later. Saw ENT who diagnosed me with just an aphthous ulcer. Looked in my throat with a mirror apparatus since I gagged out the scope in your nose.
Avatar n tn ), eating too fast (check!), and it can prevent nutrient absorption beyond what digestive enzymes and probiotics (good bacteria supplements like Acidophilus) can repair. The description on that web page seems convincing for our type of problem, but based on how many other supplements I've tried to no avail, I don't know whether I trust it to do anything. Has anyone else tried this product yet? Thanks.
Avatar f tn however, nutritionals should always be taken with food because of better absorption and better tolerance. Optimal support for Cellular Nutrition: For the most favorable results for basic cellular nutrition, I also recommend adding to the Antioxidant Tablet and Mineral Tablet some additional Calcium/Magnesium Tablets and essential fats. You are able to get additional essential fatty acids from high-quality Flax Seed Oil or pharmaceutical-grade, filtered Fish Oil Capsules.
Avatar n tn You need to continue the medication for couple of weeks as advised by your doctor and try to avoid trigger factors like alcohol, smoking and stress. It is better to consult a neurologist and get evaluated. Take care and updated on your thoughts and progress.
Avatar n tn My labia gets sore from the scratching and I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none. The labia skin is thickened from the scratching, is very dry (white-like) and flaky (at times). So are my inner thighs at the crease yet they do not itch that often. There are no bumps but my skin is raised, and I don't know what it is.
