Stomach Nodules From Protein Pump Inhibitors
Could protein pump inhibitors cause gallbladder problem (no stones, but CK Hida Scan 25%)? Might gallbladder condition improve if I stop taking PPI?
PPI: PPI's reduce the acid in your stomach. By reducing the acid in the stomach you reduce some of the digestive functions of protein breakdown and release of pancreatic enzymes. Changing these digestive functions can affect the gallbladder. However, this may not be the only thing contributing to the gall bladder dysfunction. ...Read more
I have Vitiligo and reduced thyroid function. Recently I developed a peptic ulcer. Will protein pump inhibitors have negative affects on my thyroid?
I am using voltaren (diclofenac) 75mg. And proton pump inhibitor for my stomach. How long should I wait to take voltaren (diclofenac) after I take the inhibitor?
PPI + NSAID: For GI prophylaxis, ppi is preferably taken on empty stomach first thing in morning or at least 30 minutes prior to eating/drinking. Voltaren (diclofenac) can then be taken with meal. May need twice daily ppi dosing if underlying gerd/gastritis or symptoms of NSAID induced GI irritation. 2nd dose is preferably taken 2 hours after last meal. Rx pills that contain combination nsaid/ppi can be taken w/ food. ...Read more
No: This is either something else, or you didn't have reflux to begin with. I see a lot of patients who are put on ppis for upper abdominal pain, told they have reflux or an ulcer, and when the pain doesn't improve they finally get some tests and it turns out it was their gall bladder the whole time. Try eating pizza for dinner, then ice cream for dessert. If that brings on the pain, it's not reflux! ...Read more
How do cholinesterase inhibitors affect tau proteins and beta amyloid that form in Alzheimer's disease?
They don't: The cholinesterase inhibitor group of drugs are not disease modifying agents, and merely improve synaptic connections by preserving the lower levels of acetylcholine in the brain. However, there is no direct or indirect effect on the tau or amyloid presence. ...Read more
Does caffeine inhibits protein absorption in the stomach? Does it affect protein synthesis? To what extent?
No evidence of this.: Caffeine should not affect protein absorption much. Since caffeine can cause things to move faster through the digestive tract, theoretically the time available to digest and absorb nutrients is decreased. However, the body overall is very good as digesting and absorbing protein, so this change in speed should not affect much. ...Read more
Is drinking whey protein in the morning on an empty stomach is bad? Because I experienced vommiting after 2 hours
No, might be bad 4 u!: No, generally it is fine to take whey protein on an empty stomach in the morning. If it causes vomiting you might be allergic to whey, which is not uncommon, or possibly have lactose intolerance. You could try another brand- some are better quality than others ; a whey powder processed at low temperature may be better. Or consider other protein powders such as hempseed, rice or pea proteins. ...Read more
I have a dull pain on my left side. Feels deep inside abdomen I find its worst if I drink alcohol or protein drinks. Should I be concerned?
Gastritis/stomach irritation due to acid prduction when you drink alcohol or protein drinks.
I won't be concerned much.
Right upper abdominal pain could be from liver or gallbladder problems.
But if it's persistent and getting worse, go see your dr to rule out intestinal, splenic problems (less likely). ...Read more

Could immunotherapy IV and Protein IV injection be the best combination for Minetriers Disease of the stomach instead of biological antibody? Need hel
Depends on the cause: While the exact cause of Menetrier's dis is not yet established, there are several suspects like increased activity of the Epidermal Growth Factor, H pylori or Cytomegalovirus infection. Treatment needs to target the culprit and make up for the protein loss. Hence, injection of ant-growth factor antibodies and iv proteins as well as an approrpriate diet can all be considered ...Read more

I've been taking whey protein for about 2 weeks now and I've been having stomach problems, why is this?
C1 Esterase Inhibitor Panel had two functional and one protein level. The protein level was 11 (20-40 ml/dL). What does that mean? Other two normal.
Makes no sense: C1INH assays may show low C1INH (which you appears to have) or normal C1INH level with impaired functioning if you are looking for the typical cases of hereditary edema. If the quantity is low, there cannot be normal functioning. If you do have HAE, treatment should be started promptly to prevent throat swelling. ...Read more

What to do if I have been getting horrible stomach pains after eating protein. What could it be from?
Doesn't protein get digested by protease in the stomach/denatured by the HCL in the stomach so how can it enter the body through ingestion?
Digest then absorb:
Proteins are made up of long chains of dozens or hundreds of amino acids. HCL and pepsin in the stomach & protease breaks the proteins down into individual amino acids, which can then be absorbed through the intestinal lining into our bloodstream. See http://study. Com/academy/lesson/protein-digestion-and-absorption-process. Html
