Hi! I'm new to this group, wondering if anyone have any suggestions for foods to eat with these conditions?
Good morning @jkh751 and welcome to. MayoClinicConnect. We’re a community of people who give and get information on their different health journeys. We are not medical professionals, though, so we don’t give medical advice. I think your best bet for help with diet would be a registered dietician. You can call your local hospital for names. Have you spoken to any of your doctors about this?

Yes but each give their specialty suggestion. I understand however they aren't much help. We will try to get a reg. Dieticians help if we can find one. Thank you.
@sub12 Oh, my. I think you may want to do a little less intensive research and put a little more trust in physicians. Can you start with your GP or gastroenterologist. Tell her that you really need help and then listen. And summarize your journal into the 1-2 problems/symptoms that most affect your life. These should be the focus of your appointment. Don’t try to know it all. As lay persons, we only understand about 1/4 of medical writing.
Will you try this and let me know how it goes?
Some of the autoimmune diseases have distinctive tests that can help to diagnose, but others are much more subjective. Some PCPs are familiar with the diagnostic panels and others are not and that affects the time to diagnosis. However, have also run into people with symptoms but not the markers and for those you change diet/lifestyle and use ice/heat etc. to help. I've found that a clean diet and lifestyle that is simple, less stressful and that includes movement helps, even before diagnosis. My advice is to go as non-processed as possible, low sugar and keep a diary to note foods that cause you more pain or discomfort and avoid them. I can have very moderate amounts of potato/tomato, limited dairy, wheat and foods with orange dye. I stick to olive oil or other good oils. There are specific diets that I have borrowed recipes from, but no way I can stick to them. Mediterranean is best. AIP and Terry Wahl's have some good ideas as to foods that improve your well being. Also, recommend the "GERD Triggers" information on webmd.
