Do proton pump inhibitors affect iron absorption?
Similarly, it is asked, can PPI cause iron deficiency?
Although the long-term use of PPIs is considered safe, there are several reported cases of iron deficiency anemia due to PPI use (2-4) and a community-based case control study reported that the risk of iron deficiency was increased among long-term PPI users (5).
Similarly, does lansoprazole stop iron absorption? lansoprazole ferrous fumarate By reducing stomach acid, lansoprazole may reduce the absorption of iron and make ferrous fumarate less effective in treating your condition.
Keeping this in view, does omeprazole reduce iron absorption?
Previous human and animal studies suggested that omeprazole may inhibit iron absorption in iron-depleted states. Two adult patients with iron deficiency anemia from erosive gastritis had their anemia corrected only after discontinuation of omeprazole .
What medications affect iron absorption?
Medication that inhibit iron absorption include antacids, proton pump inhibitors (to treat acid reflux) or calcium supplements.
