Just as the subject asks.....I am wondering if eating nuts can cause havoc on those of us who are GERD sufferers?

Here is a list of food that I know can be no-no's for GERD:
Spicy, acidic and tomato-based foods like Mexican or Italian food
Acidic fruit juices such as orange juice, grapefruit juice, cranberry juice, etc..
Fast foods and other fatty foods
Caffeinated beverages (coffee, tea, soft drinks) and chocolate
Haven't heard of nuts being one but we all respond differently amd have to learn what our trigger foods are.
Wait a minute...after re-looking over my list I noticed "fatty foods." Not sure what kind of nuts you are eating but I am a low-fat fanatic and have not found a nut yet that is NOT high in fat.
I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me. He said, "That cannot be true. You haven't met everyone yet!"

Hi Hamie,
Nuts of anykind causes reflux problems with me if eaten an excess....But, just like Pugan mentioned above, we all respond differently. Sometimes, we will only find out by trial & error, unfortunately.

You can try almonds. Soak them overnight. Its the only kind I can eat. The soaking removes a chemical nuts have that helps them pass through the digestive system untouced, so they are easier to digest. Chew them very well and you should be okay.

Chocolate is really bad for me. I haven't had problems with nuts but I don't eat much of them because of fat and calories. I can't believe your doc didn't talk to you about triggers. Mine sent me to a dietician and gave me all sorts of info and suggestions and that was in 1987. What kind of doc do you have? My stomach doc I had last year also told me that new studies show anything carbonated causes heartburn. Pretty soon there won't be anything left to eat or drink. lol. Barb

NUTS kill me!!!! I am recovering from oral steroids that really got to my gut. Before the medicine, I had found the secret to eating nuts and that is to chew them up really well. Someone on a board passed that on to me. My topic was "How to tolerate nuts".....
