What Are Foods I Can Eat Having Acid Reflux

Jennifer Said:

AcidReflux – foods that Icaneat?

We Answered:

Different things will cause reflux for different people but some general rules of thumb are:
Stay away from fatty and greasy foods
Don’t smoke
Don’t drink alcohol
Stay away from spicy foods
Don’t get “over full”- eat small, more frequent meals
Don’t eat for several hours before you go to bed
Don’t lay down (even on the couch) for a couple hours after you eat
You can put some blocks under the foot pedals at the head of your bed to elevate it
If you have had reflux for several years you would need an endoscopy to see if you have barrett’s esophagus which can eventually lead to esophageal cancer
Ask your doctor about starting Omeprazole (Prilosec is the generic name)
Some foods you are going to have to figure out for yourself. For example every time I eat a NutraGrain Bar I get really bad reflux. It doesn’t fit into any category that they say to stay away from but it just doesn’t work with my body. Same thing with peppers. It will take some time to figure out what will work for you.
As far as the milk products go…. they will relieve your symptoms for a bit because they will coat your stomach, but they will produce acid so eventually it could kick you in the butt-just have to figure out what works for you.

We Answered:

Stay away from spicy and acidic foods. Examples for acidic foods are citrus food, things like tomatoes. As unappitizing as it is stay with bland food. Chicken, rice, potatoes. Have you tried any over the counter meds like zantac, prilosec, or prevacid?

Ihaveacidreflux, I just want to know whatfoodsIcaneat?

We Answered:

Simply any food in a small amount, without tomatoes, spices or fat, and chewed thoroughly would be suitable.
The only food that specificaly have a role in preventing reflux is protein because it releases the hormone gastrin which increases contraction of the lower esophageal sphincter.
That is in addition to other measures related to posture, exercise and tight clothing taken in consideration.

whatare symtoms of acidreflux and whatfoods help releive it?

We Answered:

Heartburn. Heartburn is the primary symptom of GERD. It is a burning sensation that radiates up from the stomach to the chest and throat. Heartburn is most likely to occur in connection with the following activities:

After a heavy meal.
Bending over.
Lying down, particularly on the back.
According to one study, nearly three-quarters of patients with frequent GERD symptoms experience them at night. Patients with nighttime GERD also tend to experience more severe pain than those whose symptoms occur at other times. One study found that patients with night-time pain reported levels of severity that were similar to those reported in angina and congestive heart failure.

WhatfoodsCAN & CANT ieat, ihaveacidreflux?

We Answered:

these foods are big no-no’s to eat often:
red meat
dairy (milk, creams, cheese, ice cream, shakes and any other food item that uses dairy)
pasta and macaroni should be avoided
Tomatoes and tomato based products are yet another thing to be avoided. This includes tomato sauces and even tomato pickles.
It is important to use less oil and spices while preparation of food for acid reflux.

Fruits and vegetables are generally alkaline forming and should be taken in adequate quantities.

Low fat yogurt is known to actually RELIEVE acid reflux =)
whole grain bread is good

the condition actually differs from person to person, so some of these foods might be okay for you (woo-hoo, i dont think i could live without them =( ) and some might be worse

i hope this helps a little!
