Long-term use of Nexium and Osteoporosis in Men. A Study

stdunstan posted:
I am currently engaged in a study looking at the relationship between the long-term use of Nexium (a PPI) and a rise in reported cases of osteoporosis in men between the ages of 30 and 60.

As the male population in Australia rarely are referred for a DEXA Scan, it is only after a significant # following minor treatment that a DEXA Scan is requested. This is also being correlated with Low Testosterone levels.
