Avatar m tn In addition, many of us with hypothyroidism find that, rather than having too much acid, we actually have too little, which also causes acid reflux/GERD. I was one of those... I started drinking dill pickle juice, warm vinegar water with honey, taking peppermint oil pills, etc - those increased my stomach acid and along with increasing my thyroid hormone levels, my acid reflux/GERD went away. If you'll post your current thyroid labs, we can better assess testing and situation...
Avatar f tn Reflux can be a thyroid hormone level symptom. Gastroenterologists have no clue that it is! And endos say go to a Gastroenterologist. I had this while on a T4 thyroid med, no matter how high FT4 was in the range. PPI's (tried all) did nothing but make it worse. This is because GERD is from not enough acid and slowed digestion in many as a symptom of hypo thyroid. If you had GERD before hypo, then its from to much acid or other issues. I changed thyroid med to include T3 and it went away.

Avatar f tn My mother has severe GERD and severe LPR. When I read acid reflux conditions are usually due to not enough stomach acid I had my mother try a simple online baking soda test. The results were good enough to ditch the nexium and start betaine HCL with pepsin supplements to increase stomach acid and digestive enzyme supplements to help with digestion. In three days she started to feel better.
Avatar f tn Any way ENT said I have acid reflux sending me for a barrium swallow follow up with a gastro dr. With this I have chest pain and middle back pain. Foods really donot bother me I watch what I eat.
Avatar n tn Hi, GERD patients may not go on to develop CHF. However, CHF patients are prone to GERD due to the use of the medications which can increase the acid production and reflux into the esophagus. It can also congestion in the stomach and GI tract predisposing the patient to gastric discomfort and acid reflux. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn Some people claim that physical activity and exercise help diminish acid reflux over time. The vast majority of people simply use antacids which can be helpful in the short term but medical help should be sought to address the long-term effects of acid reflux. GERD symptoms are often mistaken for symptoms of heart attack and any type of chest pain should be investigated medically.
Avatar f tn Under production and over production of stomach acid both cause acid reflux but under production of stomach acid is far more prevalent. Correcting hypothyroidism helps increase stomach acid production. For extra help, digestive enzyme supplements for better digestion and if needed betaine HCI with pepsin supplements or apple cider vinegar (preferably with the mother added) to make up for stomach acid insufficiency.
Avatar n tn But now, my GP does not want to allow me to continue the Prevacid stating that Prevacid COMPLETELY stops the production of stomach acid and without some acid, my body will not absorb the essential minerals it needs. He took me off Prevacid and I have been taking 300mg of Rantinidine daily. Although it helps somewhat with the reflux, the buring pain is back and my quality of life has deteriorated. I have not lost any weight, I am very fit, alll bodily functions work as they should...

Avatar m tn I have had severe acid reflux ever since I underwent gall bladder surgery in the summer of 2012, although I don't know why my surgery would have anything to do with my GERD. I have been on a PPI (Dexilant) ever since then, and periodically have attempted to wean myself off of this drug since I understand that long term use is not recommended. I have tried apple cider vinegar, even several times a day, but every time I have been forced to go back to the Dexilant.
Avatar m tn GERD occurs in people with severe acidity , when the acid in the stomach rises up the food pipe or esophagus . there are many medicines for acidity that doctors prescribe for GERD also like zinetac , omez. mucaine ,ranatidine . but all these medicines make you dependent on them and you if you stop taking them the problem of acidity intensifies . there is a product available in the market Pepflux which not only prevents heartburn and acidity but also acid reflux (caused due to GERD).
Avatar n tn s a proton pump inhibitor that is used to treat GERD (Gastro Esophogeal Reflux Disease). And yes, you are correct that GERD can cause shortness of breath and cardiac-type symptoms, usually from breathing in minute amounts of stomach reflux acids while you're asleep and unaware. Also, try not to eat one blessed thing at least 3 hours before going to bed. Build up your pillows so that you are on a slight upward slant.
Avatar n tn My husband also has Barrett's from a lifetime of reflux. Burping is just a part of the reflux problem, and by itself doesn't make Barrett's worse. As long as you have your acid reducers on board, even if you reflux, there isn't enough acid to keep on burning up your esophogus. Since you're still having symptoms, you might want to ask your doc to try a different med. There are several to choose from.
