If she already has damage to the esophagus she needs the ppi's to heal it. I would get a second opinion from Mayo if you can. She needs to be on a low acid diet too. No spicy, fried, Italian,Mexican foods. No soda ever. No fruit juices of any kind. Stop eating 3hrs before bedtime. Stay away from highly processed foods which have a lot of acid in them.
Almond milk is alkaline so it's good to drink. Melon is good to eat. Baked chicken and turkey are good too. No seasoning except pink Himalayan salt which is not refined like table salt. Broccoli, aspergus, green beans, Lima beans, peas, Brussel sprouts. Sorry to hear she has this at such a young age.

That's terrible that the VA won't pay for the drug. My sister is a RN at the VA hospital in Milwaukee Wi and she told me don't ever come here for care. I have a good insurance from my job so I don't use the VA. Serve your country and wreck your health and they won't give you the drug that was prescribed. Thank your husband for his service and I hope they figure out what drug he needs to improve his health. Take care.

It also produces insulin to control blood sugar. Just curious, did your husband stick to a strict diet or was he lax with it?

Yes they are connected because the pancreas secrete digestive juices for the stomach.
