Interesting. I've been on lansoprazole 30 mg twice a day for probably close to 20 years. Chems have been fine, sometimes creatinine is elevated but Cystatin C is normal indicating normal renal function. The increased frequency of urination could also be prostate/urinary tract issues. Without the PPI, heartburn and reflux is terrible and I don't want Barretts or esophageal cancer. Had a scope a couple years ago and everything was normal. I have a moderate hiatal hernia so reflux is always a problem.My blood work is always perfect there is nothing that has ever off other than maybe a slight elevation in cholesterol. I do my blood work every single year and I've never have any deviating factors at all. This year I have high protein, high calcium, High ketones, there is something else I don't have it in front of me but I had more things that were dysfunction my kidney blood work and urine than was good. The only thing that was in the normal range I know they look at is the creatinine levels which was normal.
Up until the time I had blood work a few weeks back I was having to urinate at least once an hour even a complete emptying. Since I've been off ppi I'm back to every 4 to 5 hours.
They said that having to frequently urinate like that is definitely a sign that your kidneys are not functioning properly and I've noticed that over the last couple of months finally got this year's blood work done stop the ppis and almost back to normal with no really other adjustments to what I'm doing. Other than trying to figure out a way to avoid acid reflux without taking drugs
