WARNING: PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS (PPIs)

by Dr. Mitch Peritz on 01/18/16

Warning - Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) are a classification of medications designed to reduce gastric irritation by blocking the production of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach.

While PPIUs are quite effective in reducing the stomach’s ability to produce HCl, in turn, it compromises numerous actions of the stomach with varying consequences specific to each person.
