Acid Reflux, Heart Disease, and B12 Deficiency

By now most people are probably aware that long-term use of antacids increase the risk for bone fractures and infections (such as C. difficile), and they also cause deficiencies of nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, and vitamin B12.  It appears that B12 deficiency may then increase the risk of dementia.  To add to that, a study published in Circulation in 2013 is suggesting that antacids may cause heart disease.  They may do this by impairing the ability of blood vessels to relax.  One more reason to talk with your Doctor about getting off of these medications if you've been on them long-term.
