I have recently had an endoscopy and my GI said that I have a very sensitive stomach lining.  I have read a bit about the BRAT diet which consists of eating:
And this is supposed to be very good for managing a sensitive stomach lining.  Has anyone been on this diet and did it work and for how long where u on it?

Katie, this is usually the diet people go on after stomach virus, it's very easy on the stomach. The thing is, I really don't think its good for long term. What did you GU say?

Thanks for your post Alycarr00.

That's what I'd heard. I was wondering if it would prove beneficial to eat that diet, as u mention it is easy on the stomach, during the period of healing. It's got to the stage where my stomach is so sensitive to my own acid I'm on 40mg Omeprazole daily.

Ideally I want to come off the Omeprazole and address the actual issue of the sensitive stomach and I was thinking this diet would help in that process. I have an appointment with my GI Friday, so he is going to discuss diet with me.

Katie...I wouldn't recommend that diet long term. It doesn't give your body all the nutrients it needs.

If it is short term, then yes, the BRAT diet is a wonderful thing.

Let us know how your appointment goes on Friday.

Wishing you the best.
