Just wanted to know if peanut butter can trigger acid reflux? I eat a spoonful every morning with my cereal. ( I know it sounds crazy but I do). I'm overweight and know I need to lose weight. I have really bad chest pain all of the time. I take protonix in the morning and prevacid at night. I do have a history of gerd, and my last endo showed a little gastritis. That was about 2-3 years ago. I'm lightheaded all of the time with really bad headaches, and chest pains and burning. Don't know if any of this is causing any of this. Let me know what you all think. Thanks
I'd say yes! Peanut butter is probably one of the most-acid inducing foods because it is primarily fat. It requires more energy to digest (just like any other fatty food), which requires more acid to do the job. Lay off the PB, and switch to a low-fat carb-based diet. Simple sugars are easily digested.
hmm... peanut butter has never given me any problems, but trial and error is the only way to find out what gives you problems and what doesn't. The best thing would be to lay off the peanut butter for about 1-2 weeks and see how you feel.. if you feel better, you know the answer! If nothing changes, I doubt peanut butter was a culprit.
Yep I have told my doctor about the lightheadedness, and headaches, chest pain etc. I have been tested for lyme disease, heart disease, etc. I am currently being sent to a neurologist, my third one, to see if some of it may be ms. I had an endoscopy done about 2-3 years ago, so I might need another one done. The only problem is that I don't have any insurance, and I know it will be very expensive.
Not only is peanut butter fatty, but nuts are also known to carry mold on them. (not visible) Mold is horrible for acid reflux...try to stick with more alkaline foods & drinks. There are many books out there that will give you lists of alkaline foods. Try your health food store or on Amazon.

Been there..Ended up unable to work so I appled at the job center and they connected me with voc rehab. I ended up being sent to 5 Drs. who concluded I have Hashi's thyroid, bilateral sacrilitis, dementia( poss. from thyroid issues). Psyc said I was depressed( my wife laughed when I told her that)...ended up with al kinds of testing paid for..I was finally dx-ed with Fibromyalgia on top of that. One doc said I should just apply for my SSDI.. I did in April 05 and got my first payment in Dec. 05.. I would check some programs out that your state has..May God bless and guide you..K.
PS..I am 55
