Thanks Jaeme. its really helpful to hear form others.
Have an appointment with gp this week and have to tell him I stopped the PPI’s (well ran out deliberately) and tell him about the diet. Will also try to ask about SIBO and helibactori testing – we’ll see how willing he is to engage, once he sees I am not going the conventional medical route……
Am using DGK (a sugar alcohol free form) & still take melatonin which really helps with sleep. I hadn’t heard of carafate though, so may look into and ask about that.
Also pleased to hear about the kefir as that is one of the things I am going to look into next.
