Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have an ulcer?
The only way to be certain if you have an ulcer is to be examined by a doctor. Your doctor may take X-rays or perform an endoscopy by inserting a scope down your throat and into your stomach and small intestine.

What are Proton Pump Inhibitors?
Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPIs) are prescription drugs that reduce the amount of stomach acid made by glands in the lining of your stomach. This is what is most commonly prescribed for the treatment of ulcers.
Do PPIs have negative side effects?
PPIs have many negative side effects. Among them are an increased risk of kidney disease, osteoporosis, low magnesium or vitamin B12 in the blood, pneumonia, and stroke. Studies have also shown a potential link between PPI use and a higher likelihood of dementia.
Why are PPIs so bad?
To put it simply, we have acid in the lining of our stomach for a reason. Stomach acid helps our body absorb nutrients from our food and is a good thing. If we “inhibit” the production of that acid, how will our body get the necessary nutrients it needs to feed our bones, brain and other systems? It’s only logical that extended PPI use will cause problems in our bodies.
