RE: Milk Alkali Syndrome
Would that occur when taking Omeprazol and milk kefir?

Yes, the potential exists. Omeprazole should not be taken with any high calcium source. The calcium in kefir is more bio-available than milk itself and so the risk is theoretically higher with kefir than milk.

RE: Milk Alkali Syndrome
So calcium causes the blood to go alkaline?

Interesting...

I've just stopped eating milk kefir and yogurt since I've been taking Omeprazole for months now and can't get rid of it.

I've been having pain in my stomach, around the lower esophageal sphyncter area and pain on the left side of my rib cage. I hope it's not due to this alkali syndrome.

I'm now waiting for the results of a gastroscopy for pylori. According to the doctor everything looks fine all the way down to the duodenum.

We'll see...

RE: Milk Alkali Syndrome
Just thought about something:

If Omeprazole lowers stomach acid and thus makes it more difficult for our bodies to absorb minerals, how can one end up absorbing a lot of the calcium?

Shouldn't lowering stomach acid actually help to prevent alkalosis in this case?
