Hello! I have been diagnosed with GERD and have been on acid reducer pills (prilosec, etc) for a year now. When the reflux first occured I thought I was choking and was rushed the hospital, for a few months it was very hard to get stuff down. I was not on a stirct gluten-free diet, but I was on what i thought was a wheat free diet for many years. i would go out for sushi and not realise the soy sauce had wheat in it, eat wheat free cookies that had barley in them, etc. Now I am careful and make sure everything I eat is gluten-free/raw/home made. I am still on acid reducers though and it is so frustrating to dependent on them! ! I feel like my body has become dependent on them even though i feel a alot better in general . Does anyone have experience with this? Do you know any good ways to slowely get off of them? Are there any foods, diets, supplements? I dont want to be on them forever and conidering i'm in my early 20's that would be a long time! I fasted a few weeks ago and I went off of them for three days, yet then felt that lump in my throat and sore stomach and had to take them again. I am also not expecting to be off of them tommarow, it would just be nice to not be dependent on them. Send me a note if you have any insights. . . thanks!

I also have gerd and that is the way that i got diagnosed with celiac. Once I went totally gluten free I was able to stop taking prevacid. There are times that I have reflux but most of the time it is because I have acidentally eaten something I shouldn't have. Try to really watch what you eat and make sure that all of your medicines are gluten free.
