I have zero symptoms of this Barrett's since going on this diet so I hope your right! The diet is very easy for me now. I hope your Ablation's go well for you! Have they been delayed due to coved?

I'm keeping to my strict diet. I hope mine stays stable. I was supposed to get a egd scope in October but since the covid hit I bet the hospitals will be back logged.

Hi Bumble81, sorry to hear about your stomach problems. Before I was diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer I had indigestion after eating. I also would vomit after eating Mexican food or onions. I just ignored it. I was cutting the grass one day and my heart started pounding out of my chest. I thought I was having a heart attack. I end up in the hospital with internal bleeding. They did a egd endoscopy and found a hole which they cauterized. My hemoglobin was down to 7 which is low. After the endoscopy they found a infection of the stomach lining and that I have Barrett's. Now I'm on a low acid diet and take pantaprazole daily. Ulcer is fine now but now I have Barrett's. No burping problems for me ever.
Good luck finding out what ails you.

I follow a low acid diet for life after having gerd that is now Barrett's. A good book on gerd is " The acid watcher diet ". I drink a low acid coffee called Healthwise I got off Amazon. Very low acid and I use unsweetened almond milk for creamer. Almond milk is alkaline and neutralizes acid. No fried foods. No fruit juices. No vinegar products or tomato.

That's great your Barrett's is gone. I would continue to take the Protonix as it deceases acid. Just watch the diet and i bet you'll be fine.

That’s great that your Barrett’s is mild. My GI doc said my esophagus looks like a shag carpet when it’s supposed to be smooth. That’s why I really hope this strict diet will help it. I won’t know until later this year when I get my egd.
