Update on PPI (reflux treatment)

June 1, 2019

A recent CTV article and a story also on the internet was very misleading - see my updated paper Acid Reflux 2019 for my opinion and critique (go to Health Information, then Helpful Documents, and acid reflux is at the top)

I updated this paper with information about a very recent RCT (randomized controlled trial) showing the absence of almost all the commonly mentioned side-effects associated with PPI therapy.

I also added some new information about the anti-reflux magnetic bracelet (it goes around your gastroesophageal junction, not your wrist!) - not yet approved in canada, but has been FDA-approved for more than 18 months.
