In addition to the stomach, the liver damage will shorten life expectancy in some people.

Do many things to protect your liver.

Milk thistle
Dandelion Root
Turmeric w/ Black Pepper

And other liver protecting foods.

I am not convinced a couple a day is going to do any long term liver damage. WE are not talking 8 pills a day, we are talking a couple of I am anyway.

I had forgotten that I posted about GSPE protection against Nsaids and this was brought up in the Alt Med area this morning. Check it out if you care to. Hopefully they are working in my body against gastro issues.

I quit all ibupropen unless absolutely necessary once in a while. I use tylenol, a heating pad and neck stretcher. Not pain free but better off than cancer ridden.

Keep things in perspective: Barrett's Esophagitis is caused presumably by chronic irritation from regurgitated stomach acid (but that regurg also contains duodenal & pancreatic enzymes & bile).... Genetic factors are involved. and maybe the only factor- regurg is such a common problem.


NSAIDS don't cause you to make more acid--- They cause some people to make less protective mucus in the stomach-- that's why they're prone to ulcer disease.


NSAIDs have actually been found in some studies to reduce the risk of ca in those with Barrett's.
