can low stomach acid cause low ph urine?

I just started monitoring my saliva and urine ph levels throughout the day. I'm trying to see if there may be a correlation between my ph levels and my "possible" night time reflux my sleep doc says I MAY have (thus the reason the cpap therapy isn't working on me).

The only GERD symptom I have sounds to me more like LPR, specifically. I almost always feel like there's something stuck in the back of my throat. Also, most every time I have a meal, I have to blow my nose and cough, then it usually passes.

I realize this also sounds like a food allergy, but I figure I'd give my sleep doc the benefit of the doubt. I went ahead and filled the prescription for "omeprazole", yet I haven't started taking them yet.

When I checked my urine ph 2 hours after my breakfast, it measured around 5.5, which is too acidic, at least that's what my research shows. First thing in the morning the urine measured 7.0. My saliva measured a 7.25 first thing in the morning, then 7.5 two hours after breakfast.

Before I start the PPI treatment, I'm still wondering if I could possibly have low stomach acid. I tried an hcl with pepsin protocol for 4 days, and worked up to 4 tabs per meal and still felt no "warmth" in my stomach. I did notice that the throat issues seem to worsen a bit, but it could have been a coincidence. I've since stopped the hcl tabs and still have the same "feeling" in my throat, so who knows.

So, does anyone know if low stomach acid could cause an acidic urine ph? I was thinking that possibly if I wasn't absorbing certain nutrients properly due to low stomach acid, that perhaps the acidic urine ph could be the end result.

Is there any validity in that thinking?
