Since @Bagua mentioned the risks of PPI's I have switched over to Pepcid which seems to being doing a fairly good job... not as much risk in terms of sides. I had a call with my doctor today and brought the matter up about long term use and kidney failure and she played it down like she normally does, she does this when she has not mentioned something to me. I asked her to include in my blood tests a test for testosterone and she put up a fuss about testing for this. I said I may want to go on trt as I am 61 ... would like to know if my test is within a good range ... off the charts or limp dick poor. She resisted until I said refer me to an endo then. She brought up the higher risk of cancer with trt. I said holy shit why would that be, I just want to bring my test up to where it was when I was young. Wouldn't that mean I had a higher risk of getting cancer when I was young cause my test was higher than now. She did not have an answer for that one. I honestly think she either hates men or I royally piss her off. Meh ... I think I piss her off. lol
