Reflux and Weight Gain
Dear Ted, I'm writing to you with hope of an answer to my problem. I have had reflux for around 7 months now, and I have tried numerous ppi's and h2 blockers which bring me very little relief and cause me to gain weight rapidly. I am 43 years old I have a healthy diet, and exercise regularly so the weight gain is definitely due to the pills. I have been to my doctor many times about this but he won't listen to me. I am incredibly frustrated over this as I know I am doing everything possible to lose weight but I am failing miserably. I should tell you that I take digestive enzymes and ester c which is acid free vitamin “C” with my meals, I drink plenty of water, I chew dgl (liquorice) between meals, I take probiotic yoghurt with my breakfast (which is All Bran, rice milk, and Goji berries) and I drink ginger tea. I'm still getting reflux when I eat certain foods, but it's a bit better. I honestly don't know what else to do as I've tried everything I can think of and I'm still not able to lose the weight that I have gained over the past few months. I do have other medical problems which include hypothyroidism, asthma, adult acne, constipation, and regular headaches. I would be forever grateful if you could help me with these ailments.
Thanking you so much in advance.
