I started eating a ketogenic diet about 6 months ago to help with certain psychiatric disorders and energy issues I’ve struggled with my whole life. Suffice it to say that I’ve been thoroughly pleased with the mental results. The problem is that a few weeks in I developed LPR, which was officially diagnosed recently. Giving up the diet is an absolute last resort for me, since it’s been so beneficial. And fortunately, my reflux symptoms have been relatively minor compared to many people, and they’ve actually been improving now that I’m monitoring my eating timing and frequency (i.e. not stuffing myself even when I’m not hungry.) Nevertheless, I’m still having some issues and wanted some advice.
I do consume a good bit of fiber, but I don’t think that this is the issue since the reflux started before I increased my fiber intake. I’m off dairy, so that isn’t the culprit either. I never had any discernible reflux issues prior to going keto. Why would cutting out most carbohydrates make things worse? Does anyone have any recommendations? I’ve done a good bit of research on potential causes and supplements, so I have some ideas of my own, but I want some fresh input and possibly some anecdotal, experiential evidence. Any thoughts, Dr. Robillard?
