Proton pump inhibitors use and change in bone mineral density.

 

The results of this study showed that PPI use in subjects without risk factors of osteoporosis determined by the femoral T–score compared with the control group was associated with increased risk of developing osteoporosis and osteopenia in the femur bones. Wiley Online Library, 05/31/2016. (Also see Osteoporosis)
