Question About Return Of Acid Reflux

Recommended Posts

A few months ago, my sister was diagnosed with celiac disease. As far as I know, she has been very strict with her diet. Before her diagnosis, she had a major problem with acid reflux. After starting the celiac disease diet that problem cleared up. Recently, however, she has noticed a return of her acid reflux symptoms. I suspect this means she has been getting gluten in her diet again. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I had reflux my whole life. I have since realized that it was due to celiac all along. It took about 2-3 months on the gluten-free diet for my reflux to go away. Now, when I'm glutened it comes back and lasts for 3 weeks after I'm glutened by a cc amount. So, I would think that she is getting some gluten in her diet, but depending on how long the reflux has been back, it might be from one isolated glutening.

Apple cider vinegar tablets really help me when I do have reflux.

Does she know if she has been glutened lately?

Maybe your sister can lay off dairy for a while and see what happens.

I have a friend who's major symptom is acid reflux. She's discovered that she also gets it from other things, like apples and cucumbers. Maybe your sister is having reactions to other foods.

Great suggestions - thanks! I know she has many food allergies as well, including mushrooms, pepper and others. I suspect she is getting gluten in her diet and needs to take another look at that. I know they eat out a lot and that can be a real challenge for her. She has purchased a great restaurant guide for celiacs, which should help with that.

Thanks for the tips!
