I am new to the site and originally posted the bottom comments prior to finding this general forum. So, I guess it takes awhile to see success with LPR? I get discouraged because of the conflicting information and GI Dr., surgeon, and GP Dr. all just want to increase Nexium and Zantac. I’ve been following Dropping Acid for almost 4 months and it has helped with my hoarse voice and # of infections, but tummy still gets crampy. I at least feel somewhat hopeful and will be anxious for my book to arrive on Wednesday.
This is what I originally posted on the one discussion, but feel it is more applicable to this general LPR forum. I should also add that I was underweight before the below mentioned weight loss; it is scary!
THANK YOU for your patience for a newcomer!
I just ordered the book and I’m hoping I see some relief with the FTD. I have had GERD, then a nissen surgery, then I found out that I have had LPR for so many years, hence the sinus, bronchial, hoarse voice problems. I only eat chicken, turkey, and fish, no chocolate, no tomatoes, no gassy veggies, no mint, no alcohol, no carbonated drinks, few sweets, no nuts, am lactose intolerant so no dairy and I have been on nexium 2x a day and zantag at night, sleep on a special wedge, and was following the drop Acid diet BUT what has happened is I’ve DROPPED 20 LBS IN ABOUT 5 MONTHS. Also, don’t know if it is from the new meds, but I now vascilate between very loose stools several times a day for most of the week and then some hard stools. Dr.’s have given up, so I am praying I can see some relief with this diet. Has anybody had success with this diet and LPR????
