Type 2 Diabetics Have Higher Rates of Indigestion
A new study demonstrates conclusively for the first time that Type 2 diabetics1 have higher rates of reflux, indigestion, and heartburn. Their rates of lower GI problems were similar to the general population. The greater the indigestion the more it was linked to their lack of control of their blood sugar levels.

Indigestion medications are big business in the United States, raking in over 10 billion dollars per year. In fact, doctors hand them out like candy and 1/3 of Americans use some type of antacid every month. Many people use them on a daily basis. These drugs carry a lot of risks including bone loss, depression, and increased risk for infection. They don’t solve the blood sugar problem; in fact they make it worse by reducing the absorption of nutrients your metabolism needs to function normally.

Most doctors are not able to answer the following questions – can you?

Why exactly does someone with Type 2 diabetes have increased rates of indigestion?

How exactly can this problem be solved, since it would not only clear up indigestion but prevent stomach and esophageal cancer?
