Hi...I'm new here, just signed up. I have suffered with GERD for a number of yrs now. I take Nexium 40mg 2xdaily. I still get severe attacks. I try to eat my last meal before 4pm, which isn't easy to do, and sometimes I still have acid. By eating so early though, I get hungry @8-9pm. I can't eat because I will be up all night. I ordered the Bob & Joe Barton kit. Now after reading your site, I may just cancel it. It coast me $51.00. Today I received the one book. Everything in it is really nothing different. I already knew some of this stuff, and it deosn't help. I know I have to lose @60 lbs. but that is not easy for me. I guess I need to stop eating trigger foods. and smaller meals at a time. I heard the surgery isn't foolproof either. I guess I'm just ranting here because I am always looking for an instant cure.
Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear you still have trouble despite taking Nexium 40mg 2x daily. It's considered a high dose. What did the doctor say about
this? Have you done some tests?
Do you experience nighttime symptoms despite sleeping on a slanted bed?
Sounds like you are overweight and want to lose weight (60 lbs). My recommendation is to try a low-carbohydate diet. Many see an instant results after initialize themsheves to a low-carb diet! The reason is because carbohydates are naturally more difficult to digest than vegetables and meats and they cause gas.
If low-carb diet works for you, you can switch back to the original schedule and eat your dinner at 6-7.
