Question Answer
Treatment Aims for Hypochlorhydria Identify and address the cause Increase HCI production -Maintain parietal cell mitochondrial ATP production -Provide precursors and cofactors for synthesis -Maintain gastric pH
Treatment Aims of Hypochlorhydria Stimulate release of HCI -Support cephalic and gastric phase - PSNS activity, vagal nerve stimulation (Bitters), chewing, protein, fibre (distension)
Treatment Aims for Hypochlorhydria Support integrity of gastric mucosa -reduce inflammation, sooth irritated mucosa, support repair.
What is Hypochlorhydria? Insufficient hydrocholoric acid (HCI) secretion from the parietal cells for effective digestions
What is the function of gastric acid? Protein denaturing and breakdown Absorption of nutrients Stimulation of bicarbonate, pancreatic enzymes and bile release via cholecystokinin (CCK) and secetin Protection against ingested pathogens, SIBO, dysbiosis Increase the tone of the lower oesophagal sphincter (LOS), facilitating closure.
What causes hypochlohydria? Antacid meds Diseases - gastritis, antiparietal cell antibodies associated with Hashiomoto's type 1 diabetes food alleges Side effects of NSAIDS, aspirin Alcohol Stress Increased age Nutritional deficiencies Type of food eaten
How do you diagnose Hypochlorhydria? CDSA - comprehensive digestive stool analysis e.g.: health scope Helicobacter infection urinary indicans - undigested tryptophan Signs and Symptoms

What are the risks associated with Hypochlorhydria? Increased risk of carcinoma Associated range of diseases: acne rosacea, eczema, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis
What are the holistic considerations for hypochlorhydria? Correct side effects of poor HCI - pancreatic insufficiency, dysbiosis, nutritional deficiencies Effect on immune system Nervous system function - impact of long term stress
What supplements can you use to treat hypochlorhydria? Betaine hydrochloride - supplemental hydrochloric acid (Caution - potential for side effects. Contraindicated in those with upper mucosal damage - ulcers, severe gastritis, GORD) Typical dosage: 400mg with meal
