Problems with stomach acid/GERD


(Amy) #41

Me too. I also have to take HCL when I eat red meat to help me absorb the iron, and with cooked eggs (or I get very nauseous).

Which strength? I’m seeing it in 250 and 650mg.

You don’t have to go super overboard on the fats - just not low fat. Maybe there are some fats you can tolerate better - like avocados and avocado oil? Do you react poorly to butter and cheeses?


(Amy) #44

I take 250mg.


(Rob Grantham) #45

Yes it’s usually as you say butter cheese and lard things like that. If I go more than say 30g of fat I really feel it


(Rob Grantham) #46

Can someone also please confirm I get excess salivation after a meal is this from the gerd?

Do people tell you you’re a fast eater? It may be that chewing your food more will help both the salivation and the reflux. On the other hand, of course, this comment may be completely irrelevant . . .

Good luck figuring it out, in any case.


(Janelle) #48

I’m not sure that has a lot to do with it. If I don’t take a PPI or antacid, I can skip breakfast and have a burning tummy/throat.


(Rob Grantham) #49

YES! I’m always being told this… I do eat fast…

Going to try to eat slower next few days

I was told to chew each mouthful 30 times. I never, ever make it to 30, but it does slow me down—if I remember to do it, lol!
