    Proton pump inhibitors increase the risk of dementia by 44% according to German study

    Regular use of proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s) in the elderly were associated with a 44% greater risk of dementia according to an analysis from researchers at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Bonn, Germany.

    Subjects

    The study analyzed 73,679 participants 75 years of age or older and free of dementia at baseline taking PPI’s and compared them to 70,729 who were not taking PPI’s.

    Supported by mouse models

    “This finding is supported by recent pharmacoepidemiological analyses on primary data and is in line with mouse models in which the use of PPIs increased the levels of beta-amyloid in the brains of mice,” the researchers noted.

    Increased levels of beta amyloid are found in Alzheimer’s patients.

    Most older people have too LITTLE stomach acid, NOT too much notes Jonathan Wright, MD

    Jonathan Wright, MD, a pioneer in natural medicine, notes that most people who are told that they have acid reflux have too little stomach acid, not too much, and what these people need are hydrochloric acid tablets, NOT acid blocking drugs such as proton pump inhibitors.
