It's estimated that 1 in 13 US children have allergies. A new study suggests early antacid use may be linked to allergy development later on. The study was published in JAMA Pediatrics and it looked at over 790,000 babies given antacids in the first six months of their lives. These medicines, like certain types of histamine blockers and proton pump inhibitors, reduce stomach acid.
The study found the babies who received the antacids in the first six months of their lives were two times as likely to develop allergies later on. This likely occurs because by altering the stomach acid and bacteria in the gut, it disrupts the way the microbiome in the gut normally functions.
There are bacteria that is supposed to be there to keep you healthy but if you mess with it early in life, it can change your long-term health outcomes. For parents, always check with your pediatrician before giving your child any supplements and medication.
