Re: Low Iron levels from ppi's?

Well, PPI can definitely interfere with calcium absorption. Everyone who takes PPI for a long time should consider a calcium supplement. I haven't heard any evidence of it causing low iron, but it's possible.

Did the doctor recommend a supplement to bring your iron back up?

No,but they wanted too do a stool test for blood which I did this past Friday,still waiting on the results,I have read that ppi's can lower iron levels,and hoping that is the cause,I was just curious too see if anyone else had this problem,Thanks for your reply.
