Thu, Jun 6 6:40am · Upper Endoscopy Results in Digestive Health

Try going on a low acid diet. No tomato products, soda, booze, fruit drinks, Mexican food, Italian food, no fried foods. Low acid coffee, limit caffeine and chocolate and mint.
Ask your GI Dr. If you should take a dose of miralax daily. My Wife does and it helps her stay regular. Good luck with recovery.

I’ve gone on a low acid diet after being told I had silent acid reflux which gave me Barrett’s esophagus. No peppers, no tomato products, No Italian or Mexican food. No booze, soda, I drink lots of water. I also stop eating at 3pm so there is no food in my system when I go to bed. I’ve had no acid reflux doing this. I eat lots of baked chicken and have cut out seasoning of any kind. No chocolate too. No fried foods. Good luck ! This can be controlled by a strict diet.

I use a bunn drip coffee maker which is about a 10 cup pot and I only use 3 tablespoons of coffee for it. You don't need much with this coffee.

Let us know your results after the egd. I've been buying health wise coffee from Amazon.
PH is 6.18 which is very low acid. Not bad tasting either.

One thing I do is I stop eating at 3pm everyday. I do this so when I go to bed I have no food in my system for me to get acid reflux. So far I've had no acid reflux.

I went to the GI doc today and he said I'll have another egd and colonoscopy done in 3 years from today. He said the reason they don't oblate the early Barrett's is because it doesn't do anything for it. They only will oblate if there is low or high grade dysplaisa. Mine is in the early stage is what he told me. He liked it that I went from 200# on Dec-20-18 to 177# today. He also told me to cut down on the water intake. So I'll stick with the strict diet and hopefully all will remain stable. I'm not going to go below 175# seeing how I bought some new clothes.

Pdilly, glad to hear you didn't have pain after the RF Ablation. Hope your next Ablation goes ok!

Low acid diet, no soda, booze, orange juice, no tomato products, no fried foods, no coffee, I bought low acid coffee from Amazon and have 1 cup a day. PH is 6.18. No acidic fruits or veggies. I drink one cup of skim milk for breakfast with my cheerios, then it's water all day.
For lunch I have some fat free plain yogurt with a turkey sandwich. I also have some melon chunks. I eat a lot of baked chicken breasts for dinner with a baked potato and steamed broccoli. If I want dessert I have angel food cake topped with fat free cool whip.
I also have baked fish for dinner too. I also walk a lot for exercise. I'm now up to 5-7 miles a day. That's my diet. If anyone wants to share what they are drinking besides water that's safe for the esophagus please post it.
