Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) are a class of drugs used to relieve heartburn and treat acid reflux by reducing the amount of acid produced by the stomach. PPI drugs are marketed to more than 15 million American users under a variety of brand names. Popular brand names include:

  • Losec
  • Nexium
  • Prevacid
  • Prilosec
  • Protonix
  • Zegerid

Serious Risks

Recent data has shown patients taking PPI drugs face an increased risk of severe health issues—including chronic kidney disease, kidney failure, and stomach cancer. One study showed use of PPI drugs over several years can lead to an eight-times-greater risk of stomach cancer.

Another study shows patients who take PPI drugs once per day have a 15% increased risk of chronic kidney disease—and patients who take PPI drugs twice per day have a 46% increased risk of chronic kidney disease.
