just found out today i have moderate macrocytosis, whilst being diagnosed with osteoporosis. looking at link between medication and macrocytosis

Have read somewhere that the use of omeprazole can cause macrocytosis.
Is this a possibility?
From this study (8 months ago):
Altho my doctor is an excellent surgeon, he does not want to discuss food interactions with the chemotherapy drugs ... so I am doing it myself. I already know to not eat citrus fruits or drink green tea during the 4.5 months of chemo but what else should I avoid eating?
