Can Your Antacid Cause Alzheimer ’s Disease?

Can your antacid really cause Alzheimer’s Disease? Recent research suggests that, indeed, proton pump inhibitors, some of the most common drugs for reducing feelings of heartburn, can cause an increase in the ‘beta amyloid’ deposits in the brain that are indicative of Alzheimer’s Disease. This is in addition to some of the other serious Proton Pump Inhibitor Side Effects, like osteoporosis, magnesium deficiency and  heart rhythm problems; Antacid Medications can Even Ruin Your Gut. These problems can occur even when these heartburn relieving drugs are taken for short amounts of time. All too often, though, these drugs, with names like: Omeprazole Lansoprazole Pantoprazole Esomeprazole Rabeprazole and other drugs in the same class are taken for many years, which can cause Alzheimer’s at a much higher rate than those who do not take them. Is the risk of permanent loss of memory worth it for temporary heartburn relief that can be accomplished using other means that don’t cause Alzheimer’s? Solving the underlying problem can even DECREASE the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s, rather than increasing the risk with dangerous drugs. “Studies have shown that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) increase the brain burden of amyloid-beta (Aβ) and also create vitamin B12 deficiency. However, these two phenomena have deleterious effect on cognition and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).” Cognitive impact after short-term expos...

In this study, changes in lactate clearance following magnesium supplementation were evaluated in critically ill patients with severe sepsis.MethodsFifty-eight patients with severe sepsis were randomly assigned to receive either magnesium (n = 30) or placebo (n = 28). Patients in the magnesium group received intravenous magnesium sulfate to maintain serum magnesium level around 3 mg/dL for 3 days. The placebo group received the same volume of normal saline. Change in lactate clearance was considered primary outcome of the study.ResultsMean increase in the lactate clearance in the magnesium group was significantly higher th...

ConclusionIn this study, fewer than 20% of adolescents with severe obesity lost>  50% of their excess weight following LAGB. Nearly 50% of patients required additional surgery. With reports of success following sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass, we believe that LAGB is not a preferred choice to treat adolescents with obesity.

The probe was designed by conjugating the pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (PLP) over the surface of bovine serum albumin (BSA) stabilized CdS quantum dots (QDs) through the interaction of free amine present in BSA with the aldehyde group of PLP.
