Avatar n tn I had gastric bypass surgery 14 years ago and have lost 140#. Needless to say I have may of the dificiencies that go along with it. A recent physical indicated that my liver emzymes are elevated to about double the normal range. This is the first time I have ever had this issue. I' m curious if it could be due to the medications I am taking or if it might be wine or the possile combination of both.
Avatar n tn The last two times I went to the doctor and told him that while he had me on, anti-inflammatory vioux, flexril, he also had me on paxil, ibiprofin (600 mg three times a day), prilosec, and atenenol for blood pressure (before all of this medication I had an average blood pressure of 110/72) it deminished the discomfort, but I felt like I was in a fog. I couldn't seem to get the energy to do anything.
Avatar n tn B12 must be cleaved from its protein carriers by an acidic pH of the stomach. If you take antacids or use any acid-blocking medications, such as Nexium, Prilosec, AcipHex, or Zantac, you will not free vitamin B12 for absorption Also, a protein, called intrinsic factor, must be produced in the stomach to bind with vitamin B12 to aid in its absorption. Patients who take acidblocking medications will not produce intrinsic factor and are destined to become B12-deficient.
