Hello, So nice to have a place to talk to people that know what you are going through with BE. I had gastritis for 4 years. And then I got a EGD and the gastritis was supposedly gone and know diagnosed with BE in Feb of 2023. I wasn't surprised because I have a few other symptoms. Horse voice, nausea, pain in mid chest, and also some shallow breathing. I was on PPI medicine on and off for the Gastritis for 4 years. But since diagnosed with Be I have to be on PPI everyday . Which since I have one kidney it is affecting my GFR of my kidney testing. This medicine taken all the time will lower the stage of chronic kidney disease. And I did get tested after being on a PPI for 2 months. Because of my situation with one kidney, I have chosen to stop PPI medication and take H2 Blockers instead, along with Rolaids and plain Ginger Lozenges (for nausea). Health food stores usually have these. Avoid the ones that have lemon in it. 5 years ago I use to weigh 162 lbs. Now down to 119lbs. Mainly because a Gastritis diet and a Be diet is very healthy but does make you lose weight. I am looking for some thinks to eat that will help me not loss any more weight. I eat the good fats which are avocado's & sliver almonds and does not but does not help you gain weight. I need to know if anyone has any idea's to throw my way. I started drinking vanilla milkshakes and I buy fat free vanilla Kemp frozen yogurt. Thanks for your time and I am so happy to be a part of this support group. Because I do understand how you are feeling trying to deal with BE. It can be scary when the C word is thrown into the picture. Take Care !

Looked at the list, diet is for bladder, not esophagus? Thanks.
Try organic Rice/vanilla protein powder. I mix it with warm water and avocado and bananas. I can't eat pea or any other protein powders due to getting bloated. I also eat two bananas everyday.
Thank so much for reading and responding to my question about what to eat to help not loss more weight. Is there a place you buy the protein powder you drink? I live in Reading Pa. I guess I would have to buy it on line??? I had to stop eating the avocado because it is high with Nickel. And I was wondering why my Eczema was coming back again on different area's of my body. Then I came across a old list of food not to eat because of the allergy to Nickel. And it was on the list, along with cantaloupe and honey dew. So that was disappointing. So I will continue with the banana's and strawberries, apple's ( Fugi is the sweetest apple with the least acid). You made my day. Thank you it's wonderful to talk to other people that can help pass on there ideas to help with the diet BE diet. I really appreciate you taking the time to touch base with me. My name is Anita. I believe you name is Jojo?? I am really not a computer expert so trying to get use ot this site is all new to me. Hope you are doing well........
I purchase that from a local store. Maybe you can buy it on line from Amazon It is called Nutribiotic Organic Rice Protein Powder Vanilla. It is vegan and Gluten Free. Nowadays all products have a Warning on them. You can also search Katefarms.com. They have a product called Peptide 1.0 Plain. It is made of hydrolyzed pea protein for people who get easily bloated. You need a doctor's prescription.
