Acid Suppressants Linked to Fracture Risk

Proton-pump inhibitors sound like something right out of Star Wars, but they're actually common - far too common, considering their potential risks - here in the real world.

This class of drugs, which includes Nexium, Prilosec and Prevacid, among others, is prescribed to treat digestive tract issues such as gastroesophageal reflux, chronic dyspepsia (indigestion) and peptic ulcer disease. These conditions are all characterized by excessive production of stomach acid. The intended mechanism of action of proton-pump inhibitors, as you might expect, is to reduce acid by blocking the gastric proton pump; a decidedly unintended mechanism of action is increased fracture risk.

Following a recent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review of studies, the administration posted a "class labeling change"  notice on its Web site alerting health care professionals and consumers that proton-pump inhibitors will now feature a label warning regarding "a possible increased risk of fractures at the hip, wrist and spine" attributable to their use. According to the FDA, people ages 50 or older who had been taking the medication for one year or more, often in high doses, were at the greatest risk.

If your doctor tells you proton-pump inhibitors are in your immediate future, ask about the potential side effects and if you can avoid taking medication altogether.

I decided to try chiropractic because I have fibromyalgia pain. I'm always in severe pain from my head to my toes, I tried medicine, acupuncture, sleeping medication, muscle relaxer's, pain pills over the counter pain relief creams, but nothing worked. Dr. Weber has allowed me to have a life again. Please trust me when I say, "don't continue in pain when you could be helped so very much." I won't live without chiropractic care anymore. It is a part of my life.

I had severe migraine headaches for 18 years. I tried medicine and visits to a neurologist with no results. Everything else failed. I got very rapid results within weeks with Dr. Weber's help. Migraines completely dissipated in two months.I feel chiropractic care is a very beneficial natural way to cure the problem not just the symptoms.
