Re: Optimal Vitamin D levels for LPR patients?
Yes I have been on PPI's since March and they have made a big difference. I still have to watch my diet and sleep on a wedge. All in all I am much better but not sure this issue will ever be resolved. If as my doc says it is simply aging and the sphincter that closes off the stomach not closing tight enough then it is likely only 100% remedied by an operation - fundoplication. Docs will not perform this surgery if PPI's can control the issue even if it still leaves you with symptoms.
It took me quite awhile to understand which foods trigger the LPR as it can also be tied to physical activity (bending over , posture , anything that pressures the stomach) as well as emotional (being upset or anything that gets you excited , good or bad). It's a tricky combination of factors but I am getting better at it.
