I have LPR and have silent reflux. I can not tell when I have reflux.

I am going to be taking a pepsin test, so I want to have the best chance of reflux.

I did a Google search and found various foods that cause reflux.

One list I saw showed "fried foods" and "processed baked goods as #1, and #2.

I was thinking a hamburger with fries for lunch.

Then later on chocolate cake.

GERD triggers:
Carbonated Drinks
High Fat and Fried Foods
Citrus Fruits like oranges
Coffee both caffinated and decaf

The lunch should do it, all of it is high in fat and the cake is acidic.

your reflux might not stay so silent if you test your body like this, you are literally adding insult to injury. The tests are very sensitive, and pepsin stays in the tissue so it will be picked up. Maybe you should ask you doctor....seems like a risky game to me! Good luck.

just take your usual diet + a little bit of trigger food, don't torture yourself.

Hi Kevinla,
If you could please tell me what pepsin test are you doing? I'd be very interested in doing one. All my tests have found no reflux, but something has to be causing these breathing problems , along with a lot of other lpr symptoms.

hi... u can do a healthy diet. Avoid coffee, soft drink, spicy food, oily food, fat, they could make the acid acting up.
I do some therapies for myself and I consume the pure honey to strength my stomach. They did work. Oat also good for your digestion. :)

just a quick note, yellow and orange bell peppers are ok and at least for me that's a good thing because they add quite a lot to this boring diet! :)
