Re: Why would Oatmeal cause acid reflux?

It is funny you say that, I have gastritis, and dudenitis, and last time I had porridge for breakfast, I felt very sick, now did you have yours with milk? Perhaps milk is what the reason for it?milk is not supposed to be good if you have GERD.

No milk in it but it had apples in it.

Re: Why would Oatmeal cause acid reflux?

It's funny I came across this post because I had a similar experience last week. Felt fine, ate oats (to lower cholesterol), and became very sick from it. I had honey and raisins in mine. I was thinking maybe I'm allergic to the oats somehow. I'm going to be brave another day when I'm feeling better and try it again to confirm. Right now my throat is burning, sound familiar?

Re: Why would Oatmeal cause acid reflux?

Guys,

I am wondering if you've been eating the ready-to-eat type of oatmeal that just has boiling water added to it.
When I ate oatmeal on daily basis for cholesterol-lowering purposes (I no longer do), I had no problems at all. I always cooked mine from scratch and added a bunch of stuff to it. Had mine with milk. Perhaps the additives used in instant cereals aggravate the reflux.

Re: Why would Oatmeal cause acid reflux?

It could be that you have a problem digesting some types of carbohydrates. This problem is very simular and nearly as common as lactose intolerance. I now see where they have given it it's own name "Complex Carbohydrate Intolerance (CCI)". It might be worth reading about to see if it fits with your symptoms.

Re: Why would Oatmeal cause acid reflux?

Interesting thread! I first noticed problems with oatmeal (the instant kind) about 30 years ago! I noticed it most when I would then be physically active bending over, climbing stairs, etc. When I told my doctor he said I had an emotional problem.

I have since discovered I can eat oatmeal ONLY if it is the old fashioned kind that is boiled for at least 5 minutes. Even the 1 minute kind can cause me problems. I do have GERD.

It was the instant oatmeal that caused me issues.
