Stomach ulcer friendly foods

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach ulcer friendly foods


1072053 tn?1255441962 For what you're describing as an ulcer, you may want to put yourself on a GERD friendly diet and stick to it to see what happens. You can find recommendations of foods that can help or hurt on the GERD diet section at There are some big 'offenders' in the food category when it comes to upregulating acid or allowing relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter which will end up letting acid into the esophagus.
Avatar n tn Dear Rabdi, I agree with all the comments and advice the others gave you! Also, have you checked out the possibility of Celiac Disease(CD)? If you have this gluten intolerance, you would need to avoid all foods that contain gluten. You can try going on a gluten-free diet for a few weeks, to see if you have improvement. This means AVOID: wheat, rye, oats, barley, and buckwheat. Brown rice is gluten free. Corn is gluten-free, but is very "allergenic", so avoid, for a while.
Avatar n tn I saw another post about atrial fibrillation and stomach gas possible association or connection. I too have the same thing so it may not be all in your head if your suspect this to be the case. Most dr.'s think your crazy or never heard of this when you even suggest it. Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned.
542733 tn?1217719151 i know for myself when stressed we tend to adopt sloppy eating habits and ignore what is good for us,we may eat lots of refined foods and ignore nutritious foods as fruit ,vegs etc.ensure what u eating is adequately absorbed by relaxing afterwards rem what food u consume is the nourishment for the rest of your body and it will never get to the rest of your body if it is not absorbed efficiently. that would be the case even if u were on the best diet in the world.
Avatar n tn I lost 20 lbs which is great but now it seems like I'm more sensitive to certain foods causing stomach gas. I just recently linked my heart palps to gas/indigestion! I can predict when they are coming just by what I feel or hear from my stomach. I had a really scary episode last week that landed me back in the ER. I felt like my heart stopped- scared me to death so we went in. They hooked me up to the EKG for an hour or so and the heart palps happened while I was being monitored.
Avatar n tn i am having peptic ulcer so i am taking dompan(pantaprapozole) tab twice a day and the burning sensation in stomach is gone but when i take hotel food diarrhea takes place
510820 tn?1308607236 Towards the end of the semester, I was definitely having bad days where I couldn't go on dates with my boyfriend without feeling sick after eating. I was recently diagnosed with a stomach ulcer. After struggling with pain under my ribcage (on the left side) and constant heartburn, I've come to terms that it's the combination of the ulcer and GERD. My ulcer is getting better now, I'm taking nexium regularly again, but my chest pain has not.
4569680 tn?1359584001 My loving boyfriend went online to try and find ulcer friendly foods, to make sure I didn't have an attack like the one that put me in the hospital thinking I was in cardiac arrest but instead found the culprit, the ulcer. Anyways, when I ate this VERY mildly seasoned chicken, it gave me PVCs for over an hour until the food digested.
Avatar f tn If it doesn't then your gallbladder can be completely ruled out. Foods to avoid are processed, high fat, and fried foods (so basically all fast foods). Many people also have a problem with red meats, pork, dairy products, most oils, alcohol, and eggs. Some people have problems with avocados, coconut, nuts, oranges, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, high acidic and spicy foods. I know that's a lot of foods and it can be hard so keep it simple for a week.
Avatar f tn Do I have appendicitis?? Or is this just a stomach bug?? How long does it take for the pain to move from the upper stomach to the lower right abdomen??
Avatar n tn Common gas-producing foods include brown beans, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, onions, beer, red wine, and eggs.This helps the stomach to empty faster, allowing gas to move into the small is important to avoid habits like excessive gum chewing or smoking and to treat digestive diseases (e.g., peptic ulcer) that may cause hypersalivation as well as disorders that may cause nausea and reflex salivation.
Avatar m tn For the past 2 years I currently have acid pain that feels the same as the ulcer pain did just in a different spot. The ulcer pain was felt high in the chest. This current pain is at the bottom of the ribs area. Gaviscon chewables instantly stops this as it happens. Now the worst part of all this in the end is that the problem swallowing has turned into a problem of severe pain when I swallow. It feels like a lump in my throat just under the adams apple.
Avatar n tn Every am, I am awakened with rumbling of my stomach and urge to defecate-really bad abd pain, and some nausea.Stool is very soft, slightly formed, and ranges in color from light brown to yellow. No mucous,no blood,no liquid. For about an hour after, my stomach is in pain/empty like, feeling almost "hot" or burning. MD suggested Culterelle, VSL number 3,( twice/day) and Citrucel. I started to Culterelle first. Been a week, things are ok, not much improvement.
Avatar n tn I've read that taking antibiotics and/or birth control pills can wipe out friendly intestinal bacteria and the acidopholus is one of those friendly bacteria's that we need. It's only been a month and it's really been working. Of course I still watch what I eat and avoid really fatty foods but even when I avoided those things in the past I would still have problems. So far things have been so much better for me. I hope this is helpful.
405614 tn?1329147714 If you need to add some fiber, Benefiber is gastroparesis-friendly. Not Metamucil though - I think it's because Metamucil starts getting absorbed in your stomach, whereas Benefiber waits for your intestines, something like that. And I hear you, about worrying over nutrition requirements! :( As far as the MS connection goes, I don't really know anything for sure either, besides that MS is sometimes listed as a cause of gastroparesis.
Avatar f tn so here goes. I have this ache in my stomach (not my belly, my stomach, right below my ribs) and it feels like hunger pains at times - then sometimes more severe. When I drink water, I can actually feel it going into my stomach, and it hurts. (same with food sometimes). Has anyone had this feeling before? It isn't hunger.. that I know. Help!?
Avatar n tn He said the only way to completely get rid of bacteria in water is to boil in very high temperatures which we can not do. You see fermented foods has friendly bacteria which will fight off these invaders. Usually the stomache acids kills them but not always. I remember when I used to eat kimchi all the the time I hardly got sick and when I did catch a cold it was gone less than half the time than others.

Stay off fruit too. all these are important factors of ridding GI issues with hypothyroidism, Make sure positively you are optimal and may not be FREE T3 low with your treatment you are recieving now. If this level is not optimal the GERD will continue no matter what you try to help the system eliminate and balance PH wise.
Avatar m tn Yes, in fact, you should, this will keep the friendly bacteria in your gut that the antibiotic is removing.
Avatar n tn All the advice to take acid blockers may be the worst thing for you if you have candida as I dad because blocking stomach acid makes a friendly place for the fungus to thrive and grow inside. My craving for cheese, bread and sweets, and coke and coffee were either this THING clamoring to be fed or else my poor body looking for a way to balance out my system. I was eating to make my stomach feel better, but it gets worse and worse.
Avatar f tn I do not drink wine anymore. I did, but stopped about six weeks ago when I thought I had an "ulcer". I am so afraid that I have had this a long time and it has been hammering away at my liver. Maybe cirrhosis or something worse? I really wish I could get into a Dr. sooner rather than later.
Avatar n tn My doctor mentiond briefly naso-gastric tube's? Will this just fill my stomach or can my stomach be bypassed with a naso-tube so the symptoms can be avoided. I dont fully understand how this works? Thank you again for your time!
Avatar n tn until i get answers, i'll keep eating my little bites every 45 minutes of my pretzels, applesauce, toast, lowfat yogurt and cooked carrots (all tummy-friendly foods for me) and keep on truckin. if i forgot anything, ask away and i'll be happy to share!
Avatar n tn in my case i think the culprit is a malabsorption/intolerance that causes a particular food (or combination of foods) to remain in my stomach without being digested. other foods (including the white barium drink they give you for an upper-GI) will pass through just fine, but the problematic food just sits in my stomach and stagnates (until i throw it all up).
Avatar n tn Hi, I just underwent an upper endoscopy and biopsy yesterday for some stomach pain I've had for several years. I haven't gotten test results back but so far have been diagnosed with chronic gastritis and reflux esophagitis. My question is about how I am feeling right now. From all I've read there should be no pain or discomfort after the procedure but I feel like someone punched me in the stomach and I'm nauseated.
Avatar n tn *Stomach ulcer (peptic ulcer) *Gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) Action to Take: Take an antacid or acetaminophen if necessary, but avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Don't drink alcohol or smoke. If pain persists or quickly comes back, see your doctor.
Avatar m tn In truth, I never really felt that I had classic traditional heartburn or had problems eating certain foods, such as I could eat spicy foods and not have much change in my symptoms. However, in the past year I have developed additional painful symptoms: Alternating pain between my right chest muscle and right under my right rib, like a throbbing or someone grabbing me under the rib - this initially started off as pain in my right upper back, but now it's rare to have the pain in the back.
Avatar f tn He saw a specialists who said he had acid reflux and because of that he had a narrowing where the stomach attached to the esophagus. The stomach acid had caused scar tissue which created the narrowing. He went in for a simple surgical procedure that widened the narrowing. He has no more problems.
