Hi, i have been more or less overweight since i was a teen, but now i am of course bigger than at that time. At the moment im 36 years old. However a few years ago i recognized heartburn so i went to my doc and later i was able to to a gastroscopy. Everything looked fine but the doc told me that my stomach was not closing due to my excess body fat. also i got a prescription on omeprazole. Has anyone else here also got the diagnosis of GERD simply because of the overweight? In that case how heavy are you?
Second i have used omeprazole 20mg for 4 years now, but they say its bad. I reckon many people have side effects, but i am happy so far. its hard to stop taking it but i am considering. the only bad thing its so hard to loose weight, even though that seem to be a good medicine....
