The last week or so I've had GRD symptoms and the only thing I'm doing different is having white wine instead of red wine. Could that alone be the cause or what else could it be? I got rid of all dairy in the last few weeks as well. Please share your thoughts.

Do you mean GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)? If so, reflux is often caused by foods and beverages including alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, onions and garlic. Those foods cause the lower esophageal valve to relax at inappropriate times (when you're not swallowing) and allow stomach acid into the esophagus. Tomatoes and citrus fruit can irritate an already inflamed esophagus. However, GERD is rarely caused by too much stomach acid. Rather too little stomach acid often causes reflux. Nevertheless, any food allergies can also cause reflux. I had persistent reflux until I was diagnosed with dairy allergy, but eating any of my allergens can cause reflux for me.

On the same subject, do you have a good resource that says garlic causes GERD? Not that I don't believe you, my husband does not and eats a ton of garlic and the dentist says he has acid teeth errosion from GERD and I think it is from the garlic. So that is why I ask? I'd love to say here is the proof.

eating anything that is rich, spicy, or greesy? My GERD loves to act up with, for example, a large steak (yes, i'm bad and i eat the small amount of fat on it.... soooo goooooooood). What about stress? Carbonated drinks?

-knocks on a piece of wood-

Luckily, mine has calmed down a bit (here nearly a year later). At its high point, it had caused damage to my throat (which took about a year to heal on its own).

I always keep a stash of pepermint tums on hand just in case. Water too.

GERD can be caused by a variety of things. I have gastroparesis and that in and of itself can cause GERD. I don't usually find problems with the foods that I eat but I can not have any chocolate at all. Chocolate just kills me! My friend can not have any onions or peppers and neither can my mom. I know other people who can't have any form of tomato product. I don't know about alcohol because I don't consume it.

I've been taking D Limonene. That's supposed to help. I have rarely had any symptoms since taking it. Maybe a couple of incidents after I went to bed. I'd wake up choking on bile. Couldn't relate it to anything that I ate or drank though.

Hi

Chocolate can do it to me and in the past I've had my suspicions about grapes too.

Luckily, only get it rarely - don't want to encourage that.

I don't think peppermint is a good choice for GERD symptoms. GERD is caused by acid entering the esophagus. Peppermint relaxes the esophageal valve and makes it easier for acid to get into the esophagus. So it is the opposite effect of what is desired. Peppermint relaxes muscles, so it can also be bad for C issues.

In answer to your subject title question, read "Why Stomach Acid is Good for You" by Jonathon Wright, MD. He explains the biochemical and physical process of reflux and lists all the common causes, as well as effective treatments for heartburn and GERD.

    •   Ironic, We went entirely gluten-free in our home after 2016 for how bad my neurological , joints, mood gets now in addition to my former gi, skin, and other issues . My son shows signs of my early symptoms and voluntarily went off gluten, corn, and milk like me as he did his own food like diary symptom tracking. My daughter continues on gluten outside the home. We warn her of our concern for at times in toddler hood she was constipated and would bloat.  We asked their Dr to test them as I was undergoing my testing and she said no until I had my diagnosis. As we know these things take time and my son went gluten-free . He said after watching mom on my gluten challenge that he will not go back on it .  We await technology further research and we silently watch our soon to be teen girl for we know even if tested negative it can show up one day.  She says I know mom I know. The more Whole Foods here in the home we notice she actually craves gluten / processed foods less and is slowly transitioning as well.  Does your child also naturally eat less gluten and processed as well away from home? I wonder if the taste buds / craving change as the parents diet changes food options.  Thoughts?
    • Funny though, my brother and I were just discussing this. He has celiac and both his son and him are gene positive. Both were TTG/EMA negative but never tested for DGP. My brother had damage on endoscopy. They have not scoped his son. He feels his son is symptomatic but not his daughter.  I have conflicting positive and negative DGP, recent damage on biopsy and negative TTG/EMA. Two years ago my son had negative TTG and DGP. No EMA. I plan to have him gene tested and full antibodies screened again.  My brother has opted to have his children follow a gluten-free diet. I am currently allowing my son a normal diet.  But my own chaos with diagnosis, and my brother's too because he was TTG negative, makes me ultra sensitive to the possibility.  My son's ped doc has a  daughter who was recently diagnosed with celiac.  it was in the family so her mom, my son's doctor, suspected it as soon as she started getting digestive issues and losing weight.  she pretty much told me that she was glad that they didn't put her on a gluten-free diet as a child so she can enjoy eating the things she wanted to Throughout her life.  I have to say I agree to a large extent. There are many diseases that we could get At anytime. we cannot change our lives for that reason alone.  However that being said, my family has both thyroid disease and multiple sclerosis as well.   I know all too well the naive statements and assumptions that doctors can make in the face of science still working to find conclusions.  There are other types of TTG the doctors don't typically test for.  I am well aware of this, and sensitive to it. As a parent, I'm going to allow my son to continue on a normal diet for now, but we are going to pursue testinG  And I'm going to watch it very closely.  
    • It might generate based on traffic searches  or posts etc. My guess. I read them and respond because I wasn't on here as a member in 2012. I only use to visit then. So it's new to me V. happy friday   😋  
    • Just saying her TTg was 0 & her IgA was 27 doesn't tell us anything. Every lab can have different values so we need the reference ranges not just the results. Can you look back at the lab report & get those & post them please? Did they tell you she MUST be eating gluten every single day until all testing is done? Don't make a fatal mistake & take her off of gluten yet.
    • When the doc did the endoscopy, did he take biopsies? How many? From what locations? Get your records!!!! If he didn't take biopsies for celiac disease then he can NOT say you don't have it. 99% of the time, villi damage can not be SEEN by the GI doc during the endoscopy. And yes, the doc has no clue when saying it doesn't matter that you were gluten free for 3 years!
