--- Quote ---Three-dimensional models reconstructed from MRI images revealed a wider esophagogastric insertion angle plus altered gastric morphology that could compromise reflux protection by the “flap valve” mechanism in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Re-raising this.  DD's appointment with bigwig ENT in Philly for vocal fatigue showed damage caused by reflux.  She is drinking alkaline water and I am trying to figure out what to feed her.  We have been doing a lot of grilled chicken and orzo with a veg lately.  We had pasta with sauce the other day and she told me she could feel the reflux.  Last night I made chicken tacos with a bit of fresh OJ and lime juice and again her reflux flared.  She has been on Prevacid and Zantac for the last few weeks.  I know tomatoes and citrus are not good for reflux but they have never bothered her before.  So, any tips on what to feed her? The Dr. recommended at cook book called Dropping Acid but her diet is already quite limited with dairy, egg, pn & tn allergies - and she is picky.  I always cook with onions and garlic and I guess I need to stop....
