whenever I ate greasy foods I would have bad gas to the point my stomach hurts and constant burping and nausea. I had gone to the doctor recently for my stomach issue and prescribed to me omeprazole 20mg for acid reflux. I thought it was working with abdominal cramping because I was also having that along with the other symptoms but instead I ended up having really bad constipation causing my stomach to hurt much worst. The doctor had told me to take it for a month but I stopped because of the constipation being bad taking it after two days. now reading about low acid I’m not sure if I have that instead of acid reflux.
To answer the burning question in your head yes she could have low acid levels, actually sadly we are hearing more and more of children who do. But again you need to work with someone get some testing and change her diet to reduce toxic foods in it. I represent parents whose children are put on antibiotics when they are born, then the children are diagnosed with acid reflux and prescribed Gaviscon and Ranitidine and then the child becomes even more unwell, experiencing a lot of cold symptoms and easy bruising from normal handling.
It is a common problem and can affect anyone, but is most common among Native American, Asian, and black people. This is not a food allergy, just the sugar present is dairy products, lactose, cannot be absorbed.
(5) Eleven of the 30 Prilosec-treated people had developed significant bacterial overgrowth, compared with only one of the 10 people in the control group. Fried and fatty foods can cause the LES to relax, allowing more stomach acid to back up into the esophagus. These foods also delay stomach emptying.
A lot of the cause and effects of this condition matched what I was going through. So I went to a store and bought some Solaray HCL with pepsin. One pill has 650MG HCL with 129MG pepsin I believe.
How Do I Know If I’m Lactose Intolerant?
I am curious about the low acid because I vomit and very little bile or stomach content comes up before it’s empty. Meat eating causes horrible nausea and takes days to digest. I’ve been wondering for awhile if I have acid reflux.
We look at the possible benefits of lemon water and other natural remedies for acid reflux. Some people have strong reactions to certain foods, leading to GERD-like symptoms, including burning in the stomach.
The lactose tolerance test can be given to older children as well as adults. Before the test, patients fast (do not eat), and blood is drawn to measure the fasting blood glucose (blood sugar) level.
Lactose intolerance is a condition in which an individual is unable to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and milk products. Have milk or dairy products with a meal.
If your reflux symptoms are frequent or severe, it is important to consult a doctor. If left untreated for too long, acid reflux can lead to serious health complications such as damage to the esophagus, breathing difficulties and sleep disruptions. The simplest way for your physician to test for lactose intolerance is through a series of questions about your symptoms, followed by an elimination diet in which you avoid eating any lactose-containing foods for a short period of time (a few days to a week) to see if symptoms subside. However, it is important that you do this under the guidance of your physician, rather than on your own. Self-diagnosing can be dangerous, because if your symptoms are the result of a different disease or disorder, continuing to treat your symptoms by eliminating dairy products could delay a true diagnosis.
Lactose intolerance is a condition characterized by symptoms such as stomach pain, bloating, gas and diarrhea, which are caused by lactose malabsorption. Don’t give up dairy just yet. If you aren’t allergic or sensitive to dairy, or have lactose intolerance, there may be some benefit to adding dairy products such as yogurt to your diet. Many yogurts contain probiotics or “good” bacteria that can improve gut health.
This involves ingesting 1.8 ounces (50 grams) of lactose and testing for elevated levels of hydrogen in the breath, which are caused by bacteria fermenting lactose in the colon (1, 18). It can be another indication of lactose intolerance, though it’s a much rarer symptom than diarrhea. In fact, in people with lactose intolerance, the colon microflora become very good at fermenting lactose into acids and gases.
Ask your doctor if eating yogurt or taking probiotic supplements may help with your reflux symptoms. Researchers then eliminated dairy from their diets. The result?
