View Full Version : To much or to little acid?

I've been reading up on Stomach acid and now I don't know what to think. I read that when you get older the biggest problem with stomach acid is not having enough. I've just started getting bad acid reflux and I'm almost 50. If acid production goes down when you get older why would I be getting it now? I read how not having stomach acid can also cause reflux but I'm not sure how to tell what is going on. Beside some doctor sticking a probe in my stomach (which I'm not going to have done) is their another way to verify if it's caused by to much or to little?
