In 2008 I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, a long section Barrett's oesophagus and severe GORD. I was put on PPIs. After nearly a year on PPIs I found that they were causing me bile reflux. This caused me to do much research in the scientific papers to explain what was happening to me and why. The doctors cannot control bile reflux so they seem simply to ignore it. But there are papers that show it is almost universal and it is very dangerous!
After 4 years I weaned myself off proton-pump inhibitors and am now fit and healthy: the reflux hasn't gone away, but is under control and of course I still have the Barrett's oesophagus but it does not worry me. Here is my story with the results of my experiments with PPIs and the results of my researches together with the startling and worrying conclusion I came to.
