so i got off of all ppi im still having symptoms but i need to stay off prescriptions atleast until i have a new ph study done which should be soon and depending on the results of that might be having surgery

so my issue now is because of being off the ppi and since my diet is very weird right now and its hard for me to find things to eat my gastritis is acting up

i do not have h pylori been tested several times

im currently on carafate liquid i try to take it the 4 times a day that doesnt always happen

i take dgl as well

im looking for ways to protect and heal my gastritis

any ideas are greatly welcome

Hi iamloco,
One thing that might help is to keep everything you eat very smooth.  Egg custard works well when gastritis is acute, provided milk products don't bother you.  Carafate is great, and because I have a reactive stomach I am never without it on hand.  I agree, though, that it is hard to fit 4 doses into a day.
Once you get the PH test behind you, get back on those PPIs...they really help a lot.  I find that an all-out two week (at least, depending on severity) acid reducing meds help a lot.  I take maximum amounts when my stomach is acting up...40mg Protonix before breakfast, 40mg before dinner, and 300mg Ranitdine at bedtime, along with Carafate suspension (as much as I can fit in).  In conjunction with careful eating and no spice, acid, or alcohol, it seems to do the trick.
It's not easy to have a reactive stomach, I know. 
Good luck!
