NHS precribed heartburn medicins could be making men infertile

Last year, in England alone, there were 55million prescriptions for proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) – drugs that reduce the amount of acid made in the stomach that causes heartburn.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab. 2019 Mar 04;:1-12 Authors: Urrutia M, Grinspon RP, Rey RA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Originally limited to the assessment of disorders of sex development, anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) measurement has more recently been extended to several conditions affecting the reproductive axis in males and females.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is common among hospitalized patients and is particularly serious in patients with cancer. Acid suppression therapy, particularly that which uses proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), has been shown to place hospitalized adult patients at greater risk for CDI, but this relationship has not been proven among patients with cancer. OBJECTIVES: This review assesses risk factors for CDI among patients with cancer, with a specific focus on acid suppression therapy using PPIs and histamine-2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs). METHODS: A literature search was perfor...

Many infertile patients get major heartburn when they realize that they aren't able to afford test tube baby treatments because they are so expensive. They can't understand why IVF doctors charge so much, and lots of patients end up thinking of IVF clinics as being greedy.Patients need to understand that part of test tube baby treatment is clinical – and this is what the patient sees. This includes: consultations, blood tests, ultrasound scans, egg collection, and embryo transfer.However, the heart of the IVF treatment is the IVF laboratory, and the patient doesn ’t get to see what goes on behind the scenes in ...

I often see lots of infertile patients who could get pregnant if they did IVF treatment. Unfortunately, they just cannot afford to do an IVF cycle for financial reasons, and they end up without a baby. It fair to say  that  this causes them a significant amount of  frustration and heartburn when you know that IVF can help you get pregnant; but you can ’t, because you just can’t afford the treatment.Can this be changed? But it ’s not just the patients who are affected; IVF specialists also go through a lot of anguish when this happens. It’s very difficult to come to terms with the...

IVF is seen to be a modern medical marvel  of scientific technology, and while it has allowed us to delight millions of infertile couples, the truth is also that there's lots about the IVF process which we cannot control, because we don't understand it very well.Patients need to understand the limitations of IVF, so that they have realistic expectations of what we can do for them. Otherwise, every IVF cycle which fails causes needless heartburn,Thus, we still cannot predict- how a patient will respond to superovulation- which egg will fertilise- which embryo will cleave normally , and which will arrest;or- which embry...

Most infertile patients are unhappy and stressed out. They're depressed , because they're unable to perform the basic biological function every woman is designed for - to have a baby . For some of them, their whole life seems to revolve around this inability to have a child.Having kids is a basic biological urge which is hard wired into us. It's something which we all take for granted.  No one ever anticipates they'll ever have a problem with their own fertility , and when they do find out that they're having difficulty conceiving , this comes as a rude shock.Usually one hopes that it's going to be a simple problem - ...
