Re: Anyone had success with just H2 Antagonists?
I think you are right. This is mostly a genetic condition.
I am in my mid fifties, have always been healthy, weigh 125 lbs (was never overweight except when pregnant, and did not experience heartburn then). I don't take medications other than the PPI's now. I do eat pretty healthy, and have made all the changes I possibly can, and still have symptoms.
I eat low in carbs, do not drink coffee or caffeinated drinks, no red wine or alcohol, etc.
I presume my symptoms could be much worse if I had not changed my eating drastically, but I know I have not done anything to purposefully induce this. I don't smoke and never did. I am not a heavy drinker.
My only past sin was to consume several diet cokes a day. I don't even do that anymore, and have not done so in five years at least.
