Yes, I know, this is a stupid question... But I am really confused and think I don't understand properly all this stuff. If you are on PPI should you follow the diet (I mean strict diet)? How does this thing work?
After my endoscope GI said I have a small hiatal hernia and mild reflux with minimum esofageal damage. His suggestion was to stop using medicine, relaxing and enjoying life.
I've followed the Kaufman diet (very strict) and was on PPI for three months, felt almost OK (excluding throat problems), switched from PPI to H2Blockers (max dose), had terrible acid rebound and my doc put me on PPI again because H2Blockers didn't work for me and low dose of PPI didn't work too ... :-(
I've lost a lot of weight in 4 months Kaufman diet and I do not want to loose more weight, and really don't know how, because when I am on low fat diet I feel almost OK but I want to stabilize my weight too. Can I "cheat a little bit" with this low fat/low acid diet? For example, can I eat lean pork/beef 1-2 times a week instead of eating poultry months after months? Dietitian said to eat more nuts, beans, potato, pasta, avocado etc... I do not eat after 6-7 РМ and do not want to give up this healthy habit.
Is this true that if you are on PPI it does not matter what exactly you eat?
Any suggestions? Thanks.
