I wanted to update y'all to my success in weaning off of Omeprazole. After several unsuccessful attempts, I have now been able to transition to Ranitidine (usually) twice a day. I am a coffee drinker and had to go to Cold Brew (homemade) for my transitions' success. During my change over, I realized I could intake a2 milk (much to my delight and surprise) without any stomach upset. Apparently, I am not lactose intolerant but intolerant of the a1 milk protein. Smaller meals helps and following my (mental) list of acceptable foods with minimal spices. I do live in New Mexico so green chile is a staple and I can indulge but not overdue it.
Praise be! Fingers crossed for continuing success.
