hello all,

i thought i would post and tell you how my husband has been a gerd sufferer for many years ..for a long time he suffered constantly with this problem we had no idea how to help him till one day i said...look why dont you try like the rest of us and go gluten free and do dairy free as well,like all men i guess lol he was very stubborn about it,that wont help one bit he use to keep saying ,i guess he got sick of me pestering him to just try,so to please me i think he started,it took over a week fior him to confess he was starting to feel somewhat he said.then after a few weeks of no pain no reflux to the extent he had been ,he said one morning you know i have not been as bad lately i wonder why...

well he has now been gluten free wheat free and dairy free for over 3 years and i dont say he is cured but he certainly is a lot better and very pleased with him self as he says now he is gluten free like us all..

so maybe others who suffer bad might like to see if being gf/wf /df might help give some releif ..

cheers Lynne

I have now got my smallest grandchild with gerd and he is a dibetic as well ...the dr is now trying him on dairy free and of course he is sugar free
