    Kris Kresser: Dangers of Proton Pump Inhibitors

    Post by Jan1 on Fri Oct 14 2016, 19:18

    These next words are Dr Katharine Morrison:

    "In this article Kris Kresser discusses the downside to these very commonly prescribed drugs. In my own practice many people take these for acid reflux, if they are on aspirin or non steroidal anti inflammatories, or if they have pain located to the stomach area. Easy to start and I agree with Kris, very hard to get off. Particularly for acid reflux, a low carb diet such as we advocate on our diabetes diet site, can work wonders without the side effects."

    PPI's have been a known killer for a long time. Time after time I have read of people going low carb higher fat and dumping acid reflux drugs permanently within a few weeks. The bottom line, eat whole fresh real food. This ain't rocket science, it's just plain old common sense. You can't eat highly processed junk food and think you can get away with it long term. Time waits for no man or woman, and over time we all pay a price. We can pig out eating junk, but the reality is we are really starving when it comes to the essential nutrients we need for good health. As so often, less can be much more. but the right food choices are essential, especially for a diabetic. Not a lot of dietitians know that.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
