Our new dentist pointed out that DH's enamel was terribly worn down. He said it almost looked like the kind of damage bulimia would do. He is most definitely not bulimic, so the other likely cause is reflux. He only occasionally has heartburn, so we figure when he sees his primary care physician, he will be diagnosed with "silent" reflux.
We have read about PPIs and we are very against using this type of medication. We want to treat the underlying cause of the reflux, his failing lower esophageal valve. After reading a bit about it, I think we should modify his diet, and I'm going to propose that he tries the SCD.
Anyway, my main question here, how can we test for improvement in his condition if he is lacking symptoms? I thought maybe we could just test the pH of his saliva, maybe? Any other cost effective ways to track progress?
