How did your reflux baby do on whole milk?

Emma is seven months old and is really doing much better about her reflux. She went from spitting up dozens of times a day to now just doing it every few days. Anyways how do reflux babies do when it is time to put them on whole milk (I already know it is twelve months, just thinking ahead)? Emma has done fine with yogurt and cheese.

My daughter who was a reflux baby did well, but she didn't start till she was 12 months and not having Reflux problems anymore. However, for some reason, many reflux babies have constipation issues and my daughter was very constipated by the milk at first. We had to slowly transition her to it (she is a breastfed baby, I don't know if that makes a difference.)  (+ info)

How to tell if you have acid reflux disease?

I'm a firm believer that the world is over-prescribed. I think that pharmaceutical companies just want to give you a pill for everything under the sun. So with that in mind I never thought I would get acid reflux disease. I always thought that I could just live with general acid reflux, because so many people have in the past and they got along just fine.
So my question is: how can you tell if you have acid reflux? What are the symptoms and if I have it, how can I reduce it without medication.

Thanks in advance.

You need to see a doc if you think you have it for a confirmed diagnosis and a cause. You may have a hiatal hernia causing it but you would never know if you don't see a doc. GERD is not something you can not treat as left unteated it can lead to esophogeal erosion which is serious. My dad never realized he had GERD and now has esophogeal erosion. See your doc if you think you have it.  (+ info)

How long does it take for acid reflux in babies to go away?

My 2 month old baby has acid reflux. He is on Prevacid and Mylanta. I burp him and hold him upright for 30 mins after each meal. Question for all parents whose babies have had acid reflux: How long did it take for your babies to get rid off their acid reflux ?

My son has acid reflux.... He also has tracheomalacia (weakened trachea) He was on hypoallergenic formula... I didnt put him on zantac or prevacid or anything like that... the dr did suggest putting some cereal in the bottles, but I didnt want to do that either..

He is 6 months old now and is pretty much done with the whole acid reflux thing... He spits up sometimes, but not like he used to. We switched him back over to milk based formula when he started solids (around 5 months) and he has been good ever since.

I think it is really a baby by baby thing... each baby just has to grow out of it on their own.

Good luck.  (+ info)

Whats the difference between laryngopharyngeal reflux and acid reflux?

And do the PPI's such as nexium and other prescription ppi's work to help laryngopharyngeal reflux? because i know once off it for acid reflux it creates "Acid rebound" BUT does it do the same for laryngophryngeal reflux?

There are two sphincter muscles in the esophagus - lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and the upper esophageal sphincter (UES). If the lower esophageal sphincter does not function properly, there is a back flow of stomach acid into the esophagus. 2 or more times a week can be classed as gastroesophageal reflux disease - GERD. If the upper esophageal sphincter doesn't function properly, stomach acid that has back flowed into the esophagus is allowed into the throat and voice box - Laryngopharyngeal Reflux - LPR.

Unlike all the medical profession saying there is a fault with the esophageal sphincter, and many unnessary surgeries are performed to "correct" this problem, the fact is most people suffering from these conditions just have LOW stomach acid/lack of digestive enzymes in the diet. Acid blockers do not cure GERD, LPR or acid reflux. They should not be taken for more than 14 days, 8 weeks at the most.

My mother had both GERD and LPR for 5 years. Throwing away the acid blocker nexium, and starting digestive enzyme supplements, both GERD and LPR were gone in a few weeks (after trial and error of different digestive enzymes) and she continues to take them with each meal to help digestion. A simple digestive enzyme supplement that helps digest the food and increase stomach acid is all that is needed in most cases. Other causes of acid reflux include hiatus hernia, H Pylori bacteria (cured with antibiotics), obesity, pregnancy, asthma, diabetes (caused by low stomach acid) or hypothyroidism (caused by low stomach acid).

25 years of gastritis, 25 years of acid blockers! 80% better in 7 months already with digestive enzymes.

Mother suffered for 5 years with GERD and LPR....cured within a few weeks with alternative medicine....priceless :)

What are the symptoms of acid reflux and How can you tell if you have it?

Lately my throat has felt like its burning and acid-y. It also feels like I have to burp after I eat. Are these symptoms of acid reflux?

Patients with acid reflux often report suffering from nausea. In fact, nausea as a result of acid reflux is so common that when a patient experiences nausea with no apparent cause, a doctor usually suspects acid reflux as the culprit.

Equally as common as nausea occurring from acid reflux is regurgitation. Regurgitation occurs when refluxed liquid actually backs up into the mouth. Sometimes, this liquid can contain food. When a patient regurgitates, they often experience a burning sensation as refluxed liquid and food bypass the UES (upper esophageal sphincter) and make their way into the mouth. This burning is often accompanied by an awful, acidic taste. If a patient continues to experience regurgitation, it can actually cause damage to their teeth as the acidic substance erodes the enamel that encases each tooth.

Probably the most common reported complaint of acid reflux patients is the presence of heartburn. This is usually characterized as a searing pain in the chest. It can either begin in your upper abdomen or actually travel up to your neck. For some patients, this can be a cause for alarm. In fact, many people have mistaken painful acid reflux for a heart attack. Heartburn is especially prevalent after eating meals. Although heartburn usually goes away, the bad news is that it is usually a lifelong problem that will eventually return.

Hope this helps...

Who else has suffered from acid reflux during pregnancy? How to prevent the pain?

Hi, im 33 weeks pregnant and constantly getting a burning sensation in my throat. I find the more water I drink the worse it gets. Although when I eat a banana or drink a glass of milk it helps decrease the pain. Some people say it's only because the baby is growing alot of hair, and that's why you get heart burn and the acid. Is that true?
What else prevents acid reflux or eases the pain?

i feel for you honey because mine is pretty bad most of the time to.i looked up some tips that have seemed to help me some when it's been really bad. 1st off the best thing i have found is when it hits to warm a glass of milk and put a tablespoon of honey in it.. it really did help some, then when i go to bed now, i elevate my head so that the acid can't rush up in to my throat, and then my doctor also told me to not eat anything for about an hour or 2 before i go to bed..and then of course i also have a huge bottle of tums that i keep by my bed that seem to help when it's not so bad.  (+ info)

How can I get rid of acid reflux after the stomach flu?

I had the stomach flu (gastroenteritis) a week ago and now I have terrible acid reflux! I've never had it before and it won't go away. I'm taking antibiotics for something else right now and I'm not supposed to have antacid medicine. Any home remedies??

there are a lot of different home remedies out there for acid reflux. one that has worked well for me is taking a couple spoon fulls of apple cider vinegar. it tastes horrible but has worked.

everyone is different and there are a lot of different things that cause acid reflux so not every remedy will work for every person  (+ info)

What if reflux,vomiting and gastric pain continue despite treatment? What might a gastroenterologist do?

I have been taking Omeprazole and have suffered gastric problems for over 9 weeks and continue to have a problem with reflux and am sometimes actually sick. What can I do? Have I any hope of it healing up as I,m beginning to wonder if it will. Do any doctors know if it will soon get better as I,m fed up of being sick and its ruining my life.

A gastroenterologist will perform EGD - esophagogastroduodenoscopy.
It is a diagnostic endoscopic procedure that visualizes the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract.

Vomiting that does not go away, signs of heartburn (esophagus & gastric pains), GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) are some few indications for doctors to perform EGD.

What type of alcohol is better to drink when U have acid reflux?

I have acid reflux and its pretty bad. I know alcohol is not good, but i am looking for a drink that is better to drink than others with acid reflux, any ideas?

No alcohol is good ! Alcohol causes stomach irritation. And although some people think milk is good for an ulcer , it is in fact an irritant to the stomach .Alcohol consumption should be reduced or avoided because:
Alcohol increases the production of stomach acid.
Alcohol relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), allowing stomach contents to reflux back up into the esophagus.
When the LES relaxes, it causes swallowing contractions to become erratic.
Alcohol makes the esophagus more sensitive to stomach acid.
Alcohol can lead to the development of peptic ulcers and interfere with the healing of ulcers already present.
So it wise to avoid alcohol at any cost unless you like pain and the chance of stomach cancer  (+ info)
