Gastric Acid Secretions, Treatments, and Nutritional Consequences
Ronit Zilberboim and Adrianne Bendich

Key Points
• Gastric acid provides an important selective advantage today as when vertebrates evolved. With the eradication of one acid-related gastrointestinal (GI) disease there may be an increase in the incidence of another acid-related GI disease, demonstrating the importance of acid balance. • Certain gastroesophageal diseases require chronic acid-suppressive therapy. • Nutritional intervention at the initiation of acid-suppressive therapy could prevent adverse nutritional consequences. • The effect of acid-suppressive therapy on both vitamin and mineral status is observed only after many years of therapy and recent clinical evidence is available to demonstrate such effects. • Although the use of proton pump inhibitors (PPI) for the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders is effective, step-down strategies for acid-suppressive therapies should be developed and explored in support of updated indication.

Key Words: Achlorhydria; acid-suppression therapies; calcium and iron metabolism; community-acquired pneumonia; gastric secretions; gastroesophageal reflux disease; Helicobacter pylori; histamine receptor antagonists; vitamin B12 ; proton pump inhibitors

The objectives of this chapter are to provide an overview of the roles of gastric acid in health and disease, the use of acid-suppressive therapies to mitigate prevalent excess acid symptoms and/or diseases, and to review potential detrimental consequences related to their use. Particular emphasis is placed on the nutritional consequences of gastric acid imbalance as it is related to vitamin and mineral status. Finally, reduced gastric acid is also associated with disturbance in the natural bacterial balance throughout the gastrointestinal tract and the resulting gastrointestinal bacterial overgrowth is reviewed.

Gastric acid secretion is believed to have developed in the evolution of vertebrates and to provide selective advantages. Acid balance in the stomach is precisely regulated as acid is needed to facilitate digestion and absorption on one hand while too much acid can damage the mucosa and cause ulcers. Stomach acid aids in protein digestion and is thought to be involved in the absorption of minerals such as calcium and iron, as well as vitamins such as B12 . In addition, acid in the stomach has a central role in prevention of bacterial overgrowth and therefore protection against enteric infection. Gastric acid is also involved in upper GI motility and finally may modulate feeding behavior (1,2).

20.2.1. Regulation and Secretion of Gastric Acid
The stomach is organized as vertical tubules and contains two functional elements, the oxyntic and pyloric glands (Fig. 20.1). The oxyntic and pyloric glands are organized in the stomach in three areas: the fundus, corpus, and the antrum. The oxyntic gland is located in the fundus and the corpus which consists of the majority of the stomach’s area (80%). The remaining section of the stomach (20%), the antrum, is covered with the pyloric gland. In terms of acid secretion, the parietal cells which are located only in the fundus and the corpus area secrete acid via the hydrogen potassium adenosine triphosphatase pump (H+ K+ ATPase/ATPase), also known as the proton pump. The pyloric area contains gastrin cells (also called G cells) which produce gastrin, a gastric acid secretion stimulator. D cells, that secrete somatostatin, the main inhibitor of acid secretion, are located throughout the stomach both on oxyntic and pyloric glands. Enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells secrete histamine and are only located in the oxyntic area. It is estimated that human stomach contains 1 × 109 parietal cells and 9 × 106 gastrin cells (1).

A detailed review of the early signaling events that ultimately result in acid secretion by parietal cells. G ASTROESOPHAGEAL R EFLUX D ISEASE (GERD) Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) was defined by the Montreal consensus as “a condition which develops when the reflux of the stomach content causes troublesome symptoms and/or complications” (5). GERD is most prevalent in North America and in Europe and between 10 and 29% of adults have this disease (8). The ATPase pump transforms from a sequestered state in the inactive cytoplasmic tubulovesicles to a docking stage followed by priming and fusion with the apical plasma membrane where it is in the active state. This definition is accepted as the operational definition for GERD by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) (6). and biological agents. Peripherally. gastric acid secretion is regulated via hormonal.2. and certain types of gastric ulcer.and hyposecretion. Reflux disease is one of the most frequent disorder seen in primary care. GERD tends to be chronic.8. recycling of the proton pump and the role of the cytoskeleton in support of the active acid secretion can be found in Yao and Forte (4). that while about 15% of those surveyed typically experience heartburn for less than 1 year. their prevalence. hypersecretion and hyposecretion have been reported (1). as well as in secondary referral centers and therefore has a high economic impact (9). it was estimated. physiological processes that include exocytosis of the tubulovesicle followed by endocytosis after the termination must occur.

Importantly.2.and under-secretion are observed in clinical practice. gastrin acts directly on the parietal cell by binding to CCK2 and induces release of cytosolic calcium which ultimately leads to the activation of the proton pump. Acetylcholine functions both by stimulating parietal cells as well as through the inhibition of somatostatin release. The main inhibitor of gastric acid secretion is somatostatin which acts to attenuate acid secretion (1. The released histamine diffuses to the parietal cells where it stimulates acid secretion via activation of histamine H2 -receptors. The active parietal cell secretes hydrochloric acid (HCl) at a concentration of 160 mM/L or pH of 0. In addition. and Nutritional Consequences 473 Gastric acid secretions are stimulated both centrally and peripherally. Central stimulation occurs via peptides that are produced in the gut and can signal the brain directly and indirectly (3). With regard to duration. 20. for acid to be secreted from the parietal cell. gastrin functions primarily by releasing histamine from ECL cells via cholecystokinin-2 (CCK2). lifelong condition that may require continuous management including symptom relief and complication management (7).2.000 people that suffer from heartburn in the US. duodenal ulcer.

Individuals with HP infection also suffer from disturbances in acid secretion and interestingly colonization elicits both secretion extremes. gastric acid secretions can be modulated by infection with Helicobacter pylori (HP). The cycle is completed once the stimulus has decayed and the proton pump is internalized via endocytosis and acid secretion is terminated. the main stimulants include gastrin (hormonal). and the major symptoms are heartburn and regurgitation.

There are. gastroduodenal ulceration and is recognized as a carcinogen for its role in gastric carcinogenesis (13. the pathogenesis in GERD is mainly related to acid in the wrong place. 20. Further.2.2.2. Most gastric ulcers are thought to be due to altered gastric mucosal defense despite normal to low basal and stimulated gastric acid secretions. After the development of acid-suppression therapies especially PPIs. Bacterial and host factors contribute to the degree and severity of inflammation.2. Currently gastric ulcer is managed by inhibiting gastric acid secretion and the removal of the assaulting agent (nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs or management of HP infection).2. since the ulcer was not cured by the antacids recurrence and complication often resulted. HP infection is implicated with a number of extra gastric diseases (15). Infection with HP often occurs in childhood. chronic gastritis. antacids were commonly used. however. It is commonly understood that prevalence of infection is decreasing in many countries due to improvements in sanitation and living standards and the relatively recent movement of populations from rural to urban settings (12).1 describes the consequences of both hyper and hyposecretion as related to HP infection.14). Varied host immune responses to the pathogen have been documented (15). healing is correlated with duration of acid-suppressive therapy. but interestingly. However. and concomitant association with duodenal ulcer. it was possible to use these medications that allowed the duodenal ulcer to heal and further to prevent recurrence. and once established. With regard to the bacteria. Unlike duodenal and gastric ulcers where excessive acid is associated with the etiology of the disease. In contrast. surgery procedures such as vagotomy that aimed to denervate the acid-producing areas of the stomach or other more extensive ulcer surgeries such as subtotal gastric restriction were used. both nighttime and supine reflux are associated with severe esophagitis or complicated GERD. HP infection . Treatments. Increased basal and stimulated acid production is often seen with the development of duodenal ulcers. Importantly. hypergastrinemia causes acid hypersecretion in individuals with antral gastritis. Most HP-infected individuals suffer from reduced gastric acid secretion due to atrophy. U LCERS There are four types of gastric ulcers based on location. 20. Overall. adherence to gastric epithelial cells as well as the chemicals that they produce to help their survival in the acidic environment or synthesis of the cytotoxin that they produce. HP strains may differ in their motility. and longer periods of time are usually recommended. similar symptoms. Consequently. Before the invention of acid-suppressive therapies histamine H2 -receptor antagonists (H2 RAs) and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). are experienced in both erosive and non-erosive patients. pylori (HP) is a human pathogen that has been linked with sanitation and water quality in most but not all studies (12). Notably. inactivation of the ATPase and direct inhibition of the acid secretion. and acid control is central to the management of these patients. The interaction between host genetic factors and susceptibility to HP has not been elucidated yet (16). I NFECTIONS WITH H.Chapter 20 / Gastric Acid Secretions. Eradication of HP restores somatostatin and gastrin and thus acid secretion. several complications associated with GERD that are encountered in clinical practice including reflux esophagitis and Barrett’s esophagus (9) and further. in terms of frequency and severity. HP affects half of the world’s population and is considered the major cause of acute gastritis.3. Table 20. they are more sensitive to acid than those with erosive reflux disease (11). but within a region it can vary by ethnicity and socioeconomic factors. the prevalence of HP infection is higher in developing countries when compared to developed countries. Successful eradication of the bacteria is associated with improved health outcomes including reduced peptic ulcer risk and reduced peptic ulcer recurrence (13). can persist lifelong if untreated.

compounds that neutralize acid that is already in the stomach. Over 82 million prescriptions for PPIs and over 19 million prescriptions for H2 RAs are written yearly worldwide (18). patients are using PPIs on a longterm and continuous basis (19).478 Part V / Prevention of Major Disabilities. a large number of antacid compounds were recognized as safe and effective as reflected in the first over the counter (OTC) monograph that was produced by the FDA in 1974. aluminum hydroxide (Al(OH)3 ). There are numerous interventions and these are considered safe and effective.3.1. it is difficult to maintain the buffering for a prolonged period of time and repeated dosing with the antacid is needed (22). Prevalence of these diseases is summarized in Table 20. Currently. . The antacids have several important limitations. Consequently. The first was commercial in nature and required a minimum amount of each of the compounds in a formulation mixture of 25%. Currently two classes of systemic drugs are used to prevent gastric acid secretion: H2 RAs and PPIs. these combinations needed to comply with two main requirements. were used for the management of acid hypersecretion. 20. Patients with idiopathic ulcers are usually maintained on PPI therapy. in contrast. It has been reported that about two-thirds of PPI prescribing in the United Kingdom is for long-term therapy (20). Improvement in Health Outcomes is considered the root cause for most duodenal ulcers. Due to their local mode of action. however. for example. Barrett’s esophagus. sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3 ). and magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2 ) or combinations of these salts were employed throughout most of the twentieth century to manage acid hypersecretion. antacids. These medications are widely prescribed due to their beneficial therapeutic ability to reduce gastric acid secretion regardless of stimulus (1). and to prevent complications due to chronic use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Antacids Antacids such as calcium carbonate (CaCO3 ). In the past. PHARMACOLOGICAL INTERVENTIONS RELATED TO EXCESS GASTRIC ACID Too much acid and especially acid in the wrong place is associated with several diseases that may require pharmacologic intervention. leading the way in acid-suppressive therapies are proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and histamine-2 receptor antagonists (H2 RAs). Additional indications also exist. PPI therapy is popular among doctors and patients and importantly. and higher doses may be required to control acid secretion and prevent ulcer relapse (17).1. Due to the large number of potential compounds used in antacid formulations. act on acid that is already in the stomach and when dosed appropriately can provide rapid and effective acid neutralization. However. For many decades antacids were the only treatment available for acid imbalance diseases.3. it is important to note that their use pattern has shifted from acute to chronic. Increased parietal cell mass due to suppression of somatostatin has been documented in HP-infected duodenal ulcer patients (1). These temporarily buffer gastric acid and provide a transient increase in stomach pH that has been associated with relief from pain. their use is limited as these do not control acid secretion and only provide temporarily relief. several PPIs are officially approved for the management of HP infection (21). 20. in Japan. mainly in the form of acid suppression. The second condition was related to efficacy and required 5 milliequivalents of acid neutralization capacity as a minimum acid neutralization capacity per dose. avoid potential complications such as the precancerous condition. It is increasingly common to take these drugs on a chronic basis to prevent recurrent gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). Antacids. strictures.

Treatments. PPIs accumulate in acidic spaces of stimulated parietal cells where their concentration can increase up to 1. The protonation of both the pyridine and the imidazole is a prerequisite for their conversion to the active drug. Several other analogues including ranitidine (Zantac). The bond between the PPI and the ATPase prevents the final stage of acid secretion. the histamine receptor and abolished gastrin but did not affect acetylcholine. omeprazole. or acetylcholine. the proton transport across the membranes from the parietal cell. gastrin. which differs across the PPI category. was introduced.3. These properties also highlight the need to consume the PPIs shortly after the initiation of a meal when the proton pump is activated (23). and perhaps to the development of tolerance as well. Consequently. It became commercially available under the brand name Tagamet. and several others . The pyridine and the imidazole are heterocyclic moieties forming the PPI prodrug that can be protonated as a function of the conditions in the acid space of the parietal cells. famotidine (Pepcid).3.5 there is greater activation. depends on the pH in the acid space and the chemical properties of the heterocyclic rings. there were several studies that documented a rebound effect (acid hypersecretion) and tachyphylaxis/tolerance with the H2 RAs after prolonged use. The activated drug forms one or more irreversible disulfide bonds with the cysteine(s) in the proton pump. At the same time this also delays the initiation of acid suppression (25). colonic epithelial cells. The PPI class is the standard drug currently used for acid-related gastrointestinal diseases. It was found later that this class of antagonist only blocked one of the parietal cell secretagogues. Uptake of PPIs by other cells such as HP. 20.Chapter 20 / Gastric Acid Secretions. the second interaction location on the ATPase differs for the different PPI drugs (dependent on the pH). the first proton pump inhibitor (PPI). and nizatidine (Axid) soon followed. Chemically PPIs are either substituted pyridylmethylsulfinyl benzimidazole or imidazopyridine derivatives. PPIs are powerful and the most effective acid secretion inhibitors due to their direct effect on the proton pump. the duration of their effects is longer than expected based on their blood levels. Importantly. Increased sensitivity or up regulation of the H2 receptor to histamine stimulation as a result of the chronic competitive inhibition is considered the main mechanism by which rebound develops. and Nutritional Consequences 479 20. the use of H2 RAs significantly reduced acid secretion but without actually totally stopping it.2. To prevent protonation in the stomach prior to duodenum absorption.000 times that of the blood. the PPI binds to the ATPase allowing for the second protonation to occur. Despite advantages that may be associated with partial acid suppression. The rate of activation. Most PPIs are taken in the form of prodrugs. The development of tolerance to H2 RAs is perceived as loss of efficacy (24). H2 -receptor antagonists work as competitive inhibitors and concerns related to rebound as a result of its mode of action surfaced soon after their introduction to the marketplace. Besides the incomplete acid suppression. Therefore. PPIs inhibit acid secretion via the attachment of their active form to the proton pump ATPase. Several other related moieties later became available. the activation of PPIs is dependent on the pH and when the pH is below 2. Following the first protonation. PPIs provide a more sustained increase in gastric pH relative to H2 RAs which only affect the histamine receptors thus allowing for some acid secretion (21). cimetidine. indicating that gastrin action was mediated via neuroendocrine cells (23). PPIs inhibit gastric acid secretion independent of gastric acid stimulators including histamine. the H2 RAs class use dramatically deceased as newer interventions that were able to totally block acid release became commercially available. all work on the same cellular mechanism.3. PPIs are formulated with an acid resistant coating. As acid is secreted by the proton pump. was developed and commercialized by Smith Kline and French in the late 1970s.

thus making this population treatment failure. However.3. These emerging therapies are considered superior alternatives to the triple therapy for treatment of patients infected with resistant strains of HP. due to increased bacterial resistance. definitive studies that demonstrate long-term success are lacking (29–32). The second line of therapy. and in certain populations in developed countries (12). Improvement in Health Outcomes has also been reported (21). 20. Further. Each line of therapy produces efficacy of about 70% (35). There is only limited information to support other interventions as first line of therapy including over the counter (OTC) antacids in combination with H2 RA or a PPI or lifestyle changes. one that emphasizes the importance of lifestyle changes to help control the triggers. and tinidazole (36). clarithromycin. Another GERD algorithm. Based on a recent meta-analysis. A third line of therapy for patients that failed both the triple and the quadruple therapy uses PPI and amoxicillin together with levofoxacin. the quadruple therapy.3. and amoxicillin or metronidazole. increasing pH to over 4 especially during the night has been recommended. S-omeprazole. it was concluded that for infrequent post-prandial symptoms antacids and antacids in combination with alginates are quite effective (33). consists of bismuth +metronidazole +tetracycline +PPI. lansoprazole. however. Fass recently reported that during a period of 7 years (1997–2004) there was a 50% increase in double dose PPI use in patients with GERD (28). these approaches are widely used in clinical practice (6). clarithromycin. clarithromycincontaining triple therapies do not reliably produce a high (at least 80%) cure rate (34). Many GERD patients that fail once a day PPI. resistance to clarithromycin and resistant strains of HP (37). The dosage forms and the indications associated with the available PPIs are tabulated in Table 20. Further. a meta-analysis of OTC medicines. and currently in development is tenatoprazole (25). Clinically available PPIs are omeprazole. is effective when resistance to metronidazole is low. pantoprazole.2. is also available (9). However. it is expected that PPIs will still prominently be recommended. Overall. the use of antacids as alginate–antacid combinations are likely to increase (9). PPIs are capable of raising intragastric pH by several units and reduce hydrogen ion concentration (acidity) by hundreds to thousands fold (26). M EDICAL T HERAPY FOR G ASTROESOPHAGEAL R EFLUX D ISEASE Medical therapy is based on the classical view of GERD and is focused on inhibition of acid production with PPIs dominating the treatment algorithm (27). An emerging alternative strategy is sequential therapy where the antibiotics are administered in sequence. and despite lack of data. and rabeprazole.3. however. there are data to support treatment with antisecretory agents. Further. are prescribed high dose of PPI but still fail to respond. For example. M EDICAL T HERAPY FOR HP I NFECTION The first-line treatment of HP infection is a triple therapy which combines PPI. The initial treatment phase includes PPI and amoxicillin followed by PPI.480 Part V / Prevention of Major Disabilities. This European algorithm focuses both on the latest clinical practice experience and is based on findings that shows that the majority of typical GERD patients have no evidence of erosive esophagitis. The recent AGA position paper concluded that empirical therapy with PPIs is appropriate initial management for patients with uncomplicated heartburn. it also highlights that despite lack of data to support PPI intervention twice a day or nocturnal dose with H2 RAs. it was concluded that in . For example. Eradication has been difficult due to both recurrence. As for lifestyle changes.3. Recurrence rates of HP infection remain high in developing countries. 20. These cells may also contain ATPases that are slightly different than the parietal cell ATPase. there are ample studies that show an association between weight and GERD.2.1. it highlights the prevalence of the documented treatment failure in this population. and that PPIs are more effective than H2 RAs.

. that has a buffering capacity because it has been shown that absorption of Prevacid and omeprazole is delayed and bioavailability reduced when administered with sucralfate (43). It is well known that the use of NSAIDs is associated with upper GI complications such as GI bleeding. PPIs should not be co-administered with atazanavir. Prevacid. The combination of PPI with COX-2 has been shown to enhance the gastroprotective efficacy relative to COX-2 alone. concomitantly may experience increased risk of bleeding due to increases in the international normalized ratio (INR) of platelets and increase in prothrombin time (42–45). at times. readjustment of the PPI and/or the co-administered drug may be required. Notably.3. 20. clarithromycin. Gastroprotective therapies include cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors. and new strategies including vitamin C in combination of aspirin (40).486 Part V / Prevention of Major Disabilities. amoxicillin. Similarly. To overcome the complications of NSAIDs. it was reported that H2 RAs did not reduce the gastrointestinal complication risk while on NSAIDs (39). and symptomatic peptic ulcer disease. PPIs are considered as primary gastroprotective agents in gastrointestinal complications in cases of NSAIDs. which depends on an acidic gastric pH for absorption (43–45). For example.3. or cotherapy with PPIs or misoprostol.4.

PPIs may also interfere with the bioavailability of drugs that are dependent on gastric pH. non-users in contrast are at a lower risk for developing such complications (39). Improvement in Health Outcomes developing countries recurrence is related to infection with a new strain while in developed countries it is due to re-infection with the same strain (38). and their use significantly increased with the withdrawal of COX-2 (41). These upper GI complications develop in about 1–2% of NSAIDs users. such as voriconazole.INFLAMMATORY D RUGS (NSAID S ) Both prescription and OTC nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used for relief of pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal injury and arthritis. PPIs should be taken 30 min prior to sucralfate. several gastroprotective strategies including certain drugs and drug combinations have been used. In contrast. Prevacid. and clarithromycin (42). ulcer perforation. This is especially important as the standard treatment for HP infection may include the combination of these drugs.3. In addition. 20. Increases in plasma concentrations of both PPI and antibiotic drugs have been observed when these are taken concomitantly. commonly used gastroprotective strategies reduce the risk of upper GI complications in NSAIDs users. For example. Drug–Drug Interactions There are certain drugs that are affected by co-administration with PPIs and. increased plasma concentrations of rabeprazole and 14-hydroxyclarithromycin may be experienced by individuals administered combinations of rabeprazole (Aciphex). Although not normally required. Doubling of esomeprazole activity level may result from concomitant administration of esomeprazole (Nexium) and a combined inhibitor of certain cytochromes including CYP2C19 and CY3A4. and Zegerid). Notably. and 14-hydroxyclarithromycin may occur when omeprazole (in the drug Zegerid) and clarithromycin are co-administered (45). increases in plasma levels of omeprazole. Nexium. PPIs and drugs that are metabolized by cytochromes in the liver including certain cytochromes (CYP2C19) may be affected due to co-administration.3. Nexium. Patients receiving warfarin and PPIs (including Aciphex.

Prevalence ranging from 3 to 40% was reported (49). and therefore reduced gastric acid may result in reduced B12 bioavailability. the intake of other PPIs like pantoprazole or esomeprazole was not associated with impaired response to clopidogrel (47). Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) deficiency is prevalent in the elderly with potential irreversible hematological and neurological consequences affecting sensory and motor function if unrecognized and untreated. and phenytoin. There are only a few studies where reduced vitamin B12 status was clearly demonstrated.Chapter 20 / Gastric Acid Secretions. The consequences of reduced vitamin B12 absorption may take years to develop because the body is able to reutilize vitamin B12 by enterohepatic recirculation. and Nutritional Consequences 487 Zegerid may prolong the elimination of drugs that are metabolized by oxidation in the liver. and importantly that about half of those affected are clinically symptomatic (50. 20. and dairy products where it is bound to protein. fish.4. Zegerid may increase serum levels of tacrolimus (45). More subtle effects have also been described. Treatments. 20. Other markers of vitamin B12 deficiency such as homocysteine and methylmalonic acid levels could be used to demonstrate earlier deficiency manifestation. eggs. This study identified .4%) after doubling the omeprazole dose (53). The majority of dietary vitamin B12 is found in meat. therefore allowing for earlier diagnosis and thus enable corrective actions before complications develop (49).9%). Vitamin B12 and Gastric Acid Acid and pepsin are needed for the digestion of protein and the release of the vitamin B12 from dietary sources where vitamin B12 is usually protein bound. mixed data have been reported in relation to the usage of acidsuppressive therapies and vitamin B12 status. including diazepam. Most cases of vitamin B12 deficiency may be due to either reduced intake or malabsorption.6 to 0. and most patients will not manifest signs and symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency until at least 3 years of no vitamin B12 absorption (51). Additional data to support the association between acid-suppressive therapies and vitamin B12 status come from a retrospective case–control state-wide Medicaid drug database. neurocognitive impairment. A dose–response reduction in vitamin B12 absorption has been demonstrated in healthy individuals that were treated with omeprazole for 2 weeks. It was hypothesized that omeprazole competes with liver enzymes that metabolize clopidogrel (Plavix) resulting in enhanced platelet activity (reduced efficacy of the clopidogrel) for patients who are taking the anti-platelet drug.1. Populations at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency include strict vegetarians as vitamin B12 is found primarily in animal-based foods. poultry. and a further reduction in vitamin B12 absorption was observed (from 3. Some but not all studies showed a reduced vitamin B12 status with increased duration of acidsuppressive therapy. and increased vascular disease risk associated with elevated homocysteine (48). Reduced intake may be due to lifestyle choices and may be related to economic status (52).2 to 0. NUTRITIONAL CONSEQUENCES OF REDUCED GASTRIC ACID Long-term decrease in gastric acid has been associated with several effects on nutritional status. Also.51). However. Absorption of vitamin B12 was reduced about fourfold after ingestion of 20 mg omeprazole (from 3. Recently there is some evidence that suggests that omeprazole may negatively affect cardiovascular events in patients who also take clopidogrel. tacrolimus (a macrolide). In contrast to the reported negative omeprazole–clopidogrel drug interaction.4. Gastric acid is central to the release of vitamin B12 . clopidogrel (46). Others suggest that between 10 and 20% of the population is affected. when administered concomitantly with the immunosuppressive drug. including osteopenia. it appears that this is not a class effect. Despite strong biological plausibility. Several studies ascertained the relationship between acid-suppressive therapies and vitamin B12 status. warfarin.

there are epidemiological. In addition to the many well-established roles of vitamin C. and a reduced antioxidant potential. compared to 11% of the control group who initiated vitamin B12 therapy. Importantly. Ascorbic acid is present in small concentration in human saliva and it is actively secreted into the gastric lumen. and those who chronically use acid-suppressive therapy may be affected. Diminished serum vitamin B12 was demonstrated based on a study of 542 elderly patients who were PPI users but not those who used H2 RAs. The odds ratio for the initiation of vitamin B12 therapy was significantly higher for users of acid suppressives. and the average duration was 18 months. ascorbic acid is rapidly oxidized even under fasting conditions.2. as expected. Reduced vitamin C levels both in plasma and in the affected tissues of individuals who suffer from esophageal adenocarcinoma relative to matched healthy individuals suggest a role for oxidative stress in the pathogenesis and progression of esophageal adenocarcinoma (see Chapter 6) (56). Improvement in Health Outcomes 125 patients who started vitamin B12 supplementation (via injection) during the study period as cases and 500 matched controls. however (55). long-term study of PPI use and vitamin B12 status showed a significant trend toward reduced vitamin B12 levels with increased duration of PPI therapy. The results from randomized trials are not consistent. 20. This compromised capability may manifest itself in diseases such as iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia as well . Its primary evolutionary benefits may stem from its functions related to nitrite and iron chemistry (26).4. evidence of vitamin B12 appears only after many years on PPI therapy. Vitamin B12 therapy reduced vitamin B12 deficiency markers and confirmed the effect of PPI (54). despite different etiologies in the development of gastric relative to esophageal cancers. those who have atrophic gastritis. while 18% of the users of acid-suppressive drugs initiated vitamin B12 therapy. antioxidants may also protect against the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma. 40 mg dose of omeprazole (PPI) significantly reduced fasting gastric levels of vitamin C. absorb iron.488 Part V / Prevention of Major Disabilities. a drop of 46% over 12 years. experimental. concomitant oral B12 supplementation slowed but did not prevent the decline in vitamin B12 status seen when longterm PPI therapy was used. a recent small. and that the effect on the active form. those who are infected with HP. Ascorbic acid is thought to have a critical role in the management of toxic nitrogen species (57). Achlorhydric patients (gastric restriction or vagotomy). Patients with gastrinoma (ZES) and without gastrinoma that were acid hypersecretors and were treated with lansoprazole (PPI) with an average treatment of 140 months were studied. Therefore. Importantly. It is plentiful in fruits and vegetables. In addition. and animal data that indicate that diets that are high in fruits and vegetables (a source of vitamins and minerals) may reduce the risk of gastric cancer. individuals that are on omeprazole therapy have a limited capability to reduce nitrite levels. It was concluded that patients initiating vitamin B12 therapy were more likely to be receiving long-term acidsuppressive therapy (51). ascorbic acid was even more profound. Other populations at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency include patients that suffer from acid imbalance. Overall vitamin B12 went down from a median between 890 and 950 pg/mL in the first few years to 495 pg/mL. Vitamin C and Gastric Acid Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water soluble antioxidant and a reducer of carcinogenic nitrite. In the upper part of the stomach. Twenty eight percent were using H2 RAs only and 26% were using PPI only. Finally. therefore limiting its antioxidant capability. McColl’s team demonstrated that in healthy volunteers. Ten percent had low serum vitamin B12 and 31% had normal vitamin B12 but had other symptoms related to vitamin B12 deficiency. The vitamin B12 status of the 141 PPI users was evaluated as a function of time and further the effect of duration of use of PPI was evaluated with and without vitamin B12 supplementation. Chronic acid-suppressive therapy was defined as either H2 RAs or PPI use for 10 of the 12 previous months.

ionic radius. Calcium has many critical biological roles and is necessary to sustain life. Calcium and Gastric Acid Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body and 99% of the body’s total calcium is present in the skeleton and teeth.59). These results indicate that the effect of omeprazole therapy is further complicated by HP status (59. pH may affect both active and passive calcium transport.3. Calcium (Ca+2 ) is absorbed in the intestine via two mechanisms: an active. in the presence of a meal. calcium is transferred across membranes into the extracellular space. While on omeprazole and regardless of the HP status. First. 25 dihydroxy vitamin D and calcium concentration (63) as well as the concentration of “free” calcium. One way in which acid-suppression therapy may affect calcium absorption is based on the reduced stomach acidity. it has been difficult to demonstrate such an effect. Bo-Linn and colleagues demonstrated that calcium solubility was not a prerequisite for absorbability (66). Interestingly. The amount of calcium absorbed is dependent on the bioavailability of the calcium in the diet and the capacity for absorption in the intestine (which is regulated at least in part by 1. and interestingly. the bones. In terms of the active transport the pore structure that is associated with the process may be affected due to the change in the confirmation of the proteins and in particular it is suspected that the ionic amino acids like glutamate act as a “pH sensor. and calcium carbonate. it has been suggested that pH affects the tight junctions that control the passive absorption from the lumen into the interstitial spaces (64). there was a reduction in the active form of vitamin C. The second absorption mechanism is a passive. calcium deficiency does not manifest itself as shortage of calcium for cellular or physiological processes rather as a decrease in the calcium reservoir itself. 25 dihydroxy vitamin D). classical epithelial transcellular transport occurs with the help of the calcium-binding protein calbindin and calcium ATPase pump. ascorbic acid. Calcium absorption has been shown to be greatly enhanced by consumption with a meal. Reduced serum concentration of vitamin C was also noted as a function of HP status (58. paracellular absorption. The active. due to complex and confounding effects such as source of calcium and co-ingestion with food. The amount of calcium transferred is dependent on the lumen’s permeability which is influenced by 1. Calcium is the most studied mineral in relationship to human health (see Chapter 19) (62).4. was reduced only in the HP positive subgroup. Further. 20. Treatments. In vitro calcium solubility is dependent on pH. showed that when solubility increased by a factor of over 100. however. calcium citrate. ingestion of food is usually followed by a 2–3 units . transcellular and a passive. Stomach pH may affect the intestinal calcium absorption in several ways. The majority of ingested calcium is not absorbed and it is excreted in the feces.” Similarly. In this process. Total vitamin C.Chapter 20 / Gastric Acid Secretions. This process occurs through the length of the intestine. absorbability only doubled. (67). bioequivalent calcium absorption from calcium salts that are opposite in their neutral pH solubility. also demonstrated that calcium solubility was not a prerequisite for efficient absorption (68). the solubility of the calcium salts is dependent on their physical and chemical properties and in particular solubility is a function of pH. however. The long-term effects of acid-suppressive therapy. and in particular that of PPIs due to their more effective acid suppression. paracellular process that allows calcium to permeate across gap junctions. Active transport occurs primarily in the duodenum and upper jejunum (closer to the stomach). In addition. on bone homeostasis have not been extensively studied (65). there are data that demonstrated that in vitro solubility does not truly represent human physiology as it relates to calcium absorption. Calcium’s functions stem directly from its chemical properties including intermediate binding affinity. and Heaney et al.60). and coordination number which together allow flexibility in its interactions (61). however. and Nutritional Consequences 489 as negative gastric outcomes as discussed above.

5% (on omeprazole). Interestingly.45. however. Subjects were sampled from the Danish population and eligible cases consisted of 124. one with achlorhydric individuals (Recker (70)) and one with healthy volunteers on omeprazole (40 mg/day) (Serfaty-Lacrosniere (71)). Increased risk for hip factures was first reported for the H2 RA cimetidine in a small case–control study with 356 men with a radiologically confirmed hip fracture and 402 controls. In the placebo. the role of food and that of gastric acid (or pH) in calcium absorption appears to be conflicted and inconclusive. an effect that holds even for small meals such as breakfast (69). The results indicate that after ingestion of the test meal. Significant increased risk with an odds ratio of 2.962 were matched by gender and age from the same database. calcium was provided as isotope-labeled calcium carbonate. PPIs significantly increased the risk of fractures (OR 1. 20 mg every 8 h) on calcium absorption and urinary calcium excretion. calcium from calcium carbonate was absorbed to a much smaller degree in achlorhydric (0.2. Notably. G ASTRIC ACID S UPPRESSION AND F RACTURES : E PIDEMIOLOGICAL S TUDIES While calcium absorption studies provide conflicting data. Despite stimulation of acid secretion due to consumption of a meal. while H2 RAs reduced the risk of any fracture (OR 0. Improvement in Health Outcomes increase in the stomach pH (from about 1 or 2 to well over 4). hip and spine fractures).88) and hip fractures (OR 0.225). without a meal. directional consistency was revealed based on one earlier small and three recent large epidemiological studies (74–77).490 Part V / Prevention of Major Disabilities. there were two studies where calcium absorption was affected by the use of acid-suppressive therapy.4. 20. the food’s large buffering capacity results in a net increase in pH. Vestergaard et al.1 (on placebo) to 3. however. Exposure and variable confounders included antacids and acid-suppressive therapies and several other drugs that may interfere with calcium absorption or resorption.047) compared to normal individuals (0.1. Finally. The control group of 373. urine calcium level was higher than after omeprazole where calcium excretion over a 24 h period was 33% lower (73).3. The Serfaty-Lacrosniere (71) study demonstrated that omeprazole did not negatively affect calcium absorption when the calcium was part of a meal (milk and cheese). These studies demonstrate the effect of acid-suppressive therapy on increased risk of fracture. at 500 mg of elemental calcium without a meal.60 for overall. G ASTRIC ACID AND C ALCIUM A BSORPTION The effect of achlorhydria or acid-suppressive therapy on calcium absorption was evaluated in several studies.18. Notably. Of importance in this study. For calcium citrate. One thousand mg of elemental calcium were provided in the form of food (milk and cheese) in a single meal. 20.69). and 1.453 for the achlorhydric. Omeprazole significantly impaired calcium absorption. Calcium balance was also affected as was seen by urinary calcium excretion. but did not change when volunteers were taking omeprazole. there was no difference in calcium absorption. calcium absorption was reduced from 9.243 for the normal individuals and doubled to 0. calcium plasma level increased in the placebo. showed that when calcium was taken with a meal. in a small placebo-controlled study with eight healthy male volunteers. 1.655 individuals who suffered a fracture in the calendar year 2000. (75) in a case–control study were the first to demonstrate that PPI use was associated with increased risk of fractures. in fact. Graziani and colleagues evaluated the effect of a high dose of omeprazole (60 mg/day. O’Connell (72) evaluated the effect of 20 mg of omeprazole on calcium absorption in a placebo-controlled study. This early finding was followed by several large epidemiological studies showing similar effects. due to the method by . In contrast to these two studies where reduced stomach acidity did not seem to affect calcium absorption.3.4. Therefore. The Recker (70) study.5 was reported (77). Two small studies. showed the importance of the meal when calcium was provided as calcium carbonate or calcium citrate. calcium absorption was not dependent on co-ingestion with a meal and the fraction absorbed was found to be 0.

respectively. (79) also demonstrated increased risk of vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women recruited from five European centers.346 for nonvertebral fracture analysis.3. and importantly. In the men’s cohort there was a 50% increase in PPI use during the study (average 4.58 for 1–4 years.44 for more than 1 year of PPI therapy. Overall. Roux et al. Exposure to PPIs for over 7 years was associated with increased overall fracture risk. While PPIs primarily act on the gastric parietal cell ATPase.55 after 7 years of PPI use. Treatments. Yu et al. and perhaps older men with low calcium intake. may be associated with a modestly increased risk of nonspine fractures. sex. In the multivariate analysis. Canada. vertebral. There was also an association of a slight increased risk of nonspine fracture among men who were not taking calcium supplements. estimated that one extra nonspine fracture would be expected for every 10 women treated with PPIs for 5 years and concluded that the use of PPIs in older women.6 for hip fracture after 5 years increased to 4. it was independent of age (78). After multivariate analysis. a lower cross-sectional bone mineral density (BMD) was observed for men. and Nutritional Consequences 491 which the data were collected the population was not restricted by age (75). While studying the effects of long-term PPI use. OR of 1. omeprazole was a significant and independent predictor of fractures with a relative risk of 3.386 controls in the United Kingdom.1 years for the Osteoporosis and Ultrasound Study. when the combination of therapies (either PPI or H2 RAs) was examined. and that about 50% of the women and 35% of the men were taking calcium supplements. Adjusted odds ratio (AOR) was 1. In terms of fracture outcomes. one of 5. 20.339 women over the age of 65 (18). the PPIs exert their activity via their attachment to the ATPase and prevention of acid secretion.792 fracture cases and 47.211 women were used for vertebral fracture and 1. Total bone loss at the hip was also only significant in men who used PPI or H2 RAs. In the second prospective study.6 years. The first prospective study examined the association between acid-suppressive therapy and skeletal outcomes using two large cohorts. there were 15. mean duration of PPI therapy was 1. data from 1.755 men and the other of 5. there were no significant BMD differences among women. Similarly when comparing duration of PPI therapy. There were a total of 822 men and 753 women that were either PPI or H2 RA users.9 years).Chapter 20 / Gastric Acid Secretions.65 for longer term and higher dose. It is important to note that in the women’s cohort.3.8 years and that of H2 RAs was 3. and other comorbidities and AOR was calculated.1. Yang et al.289 controls and follow-up for over 5 years for about a 1/3 of the cohort. G ASTRIC ACID S UPPRESSION AND F RACTURES : P ROSPECTIVE S TUDIES There are now two prospective studies that also support the other epidemiological findings. and wrist fractures who were over 50 years old were matched with three controls based on age. About 2. It has been suggested that one way to explain the mechanism by which the PPIs increase the risk of fractures is related to their activity on the osteoclast ATPase. AOR increased from 1.400 women were recruited from 1999 to 2001 and were followed for a mean 6. and interestingly. up to 2. Radiographs were preformed in the beginning and in final visit and omeprazole exposure and potential cofounders were also ascertained.6 years). there was a threefold increase in the number who used PPI therapy during the duration of the study (average 4.556 cases of hip fracture and 135.22 to 1.4. Similar observations were also reported based on a very large nested case–control study with 13. As described above. PPIs can also exert some activity on the bone’s osteoclast ATPase . The relationship between duration of exposure to PPIs and osteoporosis-related fractures was also explored by Targownik (76). In a retrospective cohort based on medical claims data in Manitoba. there was a 34% significant increased risk of nonspine fracture in the women PPI users and a 20% increase when looking at PPI or H2 RAs users. showed that both men and women PPI users over 50 years old were at increased risk of hip fracture and that the risk increased with increased duration and dose of PPI (74). patients with hip. Baseline characteristics revealed that dietary elemental calcium intake was slightly over 700 mg.

In summary. Ascorbic acid in the stomach enhances absorption of nonheme iron. whereas most of the nonheme iron is in the ferric (Fe+3 ) form. or the small number of people who were actually on acid-suppressive therapies. achlorhydria has been associated with increased risk of iron deficiency and is seen most frequently in the elderly (84–86). reduced iron absorption is advantageous. Further. most studies consistently show an association of low magnitude between long-term PPI use and increased risk of all fractures and/or hip fractures.492 Part V / Prevention of Major Disabilities.82). The level of gastric acid in the stomach also affects the potential to absorb iron. such as citric.2 g of magnesium hydroxide and 90 mg simethicone) also reduced iron absorption by 52% (85). The heme iron is in the ferrous form (Fe+2 ).4. 20. and the ferric form requires reduction (in the presence of acid) to the ferrous form before it can be transported across the intestinal lumen and absorbed (80). There is a separate transporter protein for nonheme iron. iron absorption was reduced by 42 and 65% with the increase in cimetidine to 600 and 900 mg. Iron Absorption and Gastric Acid Iron absorption is highly regulated and is primarily dependent on the level of iron stores and erythropoietic activity. Improvement in Health Outcomes activity.1. In contrast nonheme iron absorption is dependent on its solubility and interactions with other meal components. Heme iron is relatively more bioavailable and is only slightly influenced by dietary factors. In contrast. lactic. increases the risk of fractures. the prospective study did not provide enough data to support reduced BMD as a cause for the fracture findings. While iron absorption was reduced by 28% when 300 mg of cimetidine was administered.4. Currently. Localization of the PPIs activity may be related to the general structure as well as the different sub units of the ATPase in the parietal cell and osteoclast in bone (78). Although these studies may not be as conclusive as placebo-controlled intervention studies. Recent data indicate that long-term use of PPIs in patients with HH reduced the requirement for maintenance phlebotomy.4. respectively. in patients with abnormally high absorption of iron (hereditary hemochromatosis (HH)). and in particular PPIs consistently albeit to a small degree.4. Gastric acid is needed to maintain nonheme iron in solution in the ferrous form and therefore decreased stomach acid may lead to impaired iron absorption (81. increased PPI dose and/or duration also consistently contributed to the increased risk. As summarized by Richards and Goltzman (79). and malic acid also enhance nonheme iron absorption. antacid (1. clinicians should help patients understand risk-benefit and especially after long-term use. 20. G ASTRIC ACID S UPPRESSION AND I RON A BSORPTION A small study using radioactively labeled iron (nonheme) and cimetidine (H2 RA) showed a reduction in the percent of iron absorbed that was dose dependent.2 g aluminum hydroxide and 1. Other organic acids. the totality of the data begins to indicate that the use of acid-suppressive therapy. primarily through reduction of ferric iron to the ferrous form (83). It was concluded that administration of a PPI to patients with HH can inhibit the absorption of nonheme iron from a test meal and the habitual diet (87). heme and nonheme. Overall. Iron in the diet can be divided into two forms. . they illustrate that more research is needed into the effects of long-term use of PPIs. Similarly. PPI-induced suppression of gastric acid reduced dietary iron absorption in the patients and there was a significant reduction in the volume of blood needed to be removed annually while on the PPI. There may be situations where reduced dose and/or finite duration should be considered (79). perhaps due to the relatively short duration.

Nutritional Consequences Summary Increasing evidence suggests that acid-suppressive therapies. In the case of pathogenic assault. Gastric acid is one of the protective agents available to help protect against microbial pathogens reaching the intestine (88). Infectious Diseases Several lines of defense mechanisms exist to protect the internal environment from potential toxins and microbial pathogens. there are local GI factors that are mobilized and.4.4.642 cases based on well-defined hospital discharge diagnosis with 34. Further there was no association with H2 receptor antagonists or with past use of PPIs (90). Children who were referred to centers with common GERDrelated symptoms and received either ranitidine (H2 receptor antagonist) or omeprazole (PPI) and others that visited the center for routine examinations were included in the study. The incidence of community-acquired pneumonia prior to the study was similar across the groups. However. C OMMUNITY-ACQUIRED P NEUMONIA C ASE –C ONTROL AND P ROSPECTIVE S TUDIES Gulmez et al. in addition if needed.176 control subjects matched by age and sex. It was reported that the adjusted odds ratio of the association between current use of PPI with community-acquired pneumonia was moderate. and Nutritional Consequences 493 20.6. except for GERD. 12% of those on the acid-suppression therapy suffered from pneumonia (91). at 1. Finally.6. the association was not PPI dose dependent. . lifestyle influences. Logistic regression was used to control confounders. Despite these limitations it is important to note that these adverse events have occurred and that risk-benefit analysis should always consider the potential for adverse nutritional effects. these children were healthy and had no co-morbidities. and other OTC medication intake.1. no conclusive data are available based on short-term intervention studies that evaluate the effect of acid-suppressive therapies on calcium absorption. Data were from 186 subjects of which 95 were in the control group and 91 received acid-suppression therapy (47 on ranitidine and 44 on omeprazole). Structural integrity combined with protective agents help to maintain the gastrointestinal tract. in the cases of vitamin B12 and iron much smaller cohorts have been used to demonstrate the effect. In some cases. such as in the increased risk of fractures. systemic immune responses are available to help prevent the pathogenic invasion. Importantly. (90) reported increased risk of community-acquired pneumonia in PPI users in a population-based study in Denmark. The study found that 2% of the control children suffered from pneumonia in the follow-up period. Further. While these observational studies use large databases that carefully document both the cases based on disease codes and medication usages. Consequences include reduced mineral and vitamin absorption. the association between acid-suppressive therapies and adverse events is based primarily on observational studies (74–76). 20.Chapter 20 / Gastric Acid Secretions.5. A prospective study with children also demonstrated increased risk for community-acquired pneumonia in children who were on gastric acid-suppression therapy.5.

All subjects that had CDAD infection used antibiotics several months prior to the onset of the CDAD (from 2 to 5 months) and 60% were on PPIs. This was a 347 bed long-term care facility and there were 25 cases of CDAD during the study period and 28 other patients were selected as control. about 50% of the patients receiving antibiotics were also prescribed PPIs and another 10% receiving H2 RAs.1. Further. our increasing knowledge related to the . 1. the disease may not occur unless the normal flora is disturbed. difficile colonization. difficile. difficile infection (97).
