My symptoms include horseness asthma and post nasal drip…no GERD. Self diagnosed with low stomach acid and started with HCL capsules. Since starting HCL, all symptoms gone…no horseness and hav not used asthma enhaler in two months. Will look into the fast track dietFunkOdysseyParticipantDecember 7, 2016 at 7:43 pmPost count: 1
What dose of HCl are you taking? I’m thinking pure betaine HCl would be better than HCl w/ pepsin, considering the major role of pepsin in causing LPR symptoms. The fast tract diet helps my LPR symptoms to a large degree but there is still room for improvement and I’ve seen some positive early results with HCl supplements myself.
I can also confirm there is some validity to the “Dropping Acid” approach to LPR. The high-carb, low-fat diet is misguided, but the attention paid to pH of food and drink is not. I can reproducibly aggravate symptoms with consumption of vinegar, wine, and anything else acidic. It seems some pepsin is always sitting there in the throat just waiting to be activated by a low pH.
