Default . Gerd or acid reflux from low-carb high-fat WOE? ? ?

So I just seen my doctor about my sore throat and he thinks it is Gerd or acid reflux from this low-carb high-fat diet, has anyone heard of this or got this? Not even sure what to do now at this point all I know is I am miserable and very irritable with having a constant sore throat for over a week. It starts out not not as bad in the morning but gets progressively worse through the day which leads me to wonder if maybe he is right. Also because when it is at its worst in the my throat will dry up like somebody just suck all the air out of me and he said that is indicated of Gerd or acid reflux. I do not know what to do now any thoughts on this?

Are you actually aware of bile or an acrid bad-tasting substance coming up in your throat or mouth when you burp or belch? Do you actually do any burping or belching?

I had GERD for a long long time, and LCHF was the only thing that ever got RID of it. Far from causing reflux, many members here have discovered that LCHF relieves these digestive disorders. I think your doc and your husband are both barking up the wrong tree.

Most people report that LCHF eliminates GERD for them. Haven't heard of it actually causing it. That's a puzzle.

(Me thinks your doc is going to blame LCHF on anything you report if he isn't comfortable with your WOE for diabetes.)

My GERD went away with LCHF, too. I'd already given up Mexican chorizo sausage, and was about to give up bacon, before I was diagnosed. Tortillas and toast were the real culprits, all along!

Nowadays I only get heartburn when I eat out and the restaurant's "low-carb" options turn out to be no such thing (I've got a rant for that).

What you're experiencing actually sounds like some kind of bug. Docs sometimes get hung up on one aspect of health, and ignore all others. Is there a chance you can get a second, independent opinion?

It was actually an RN that I seen and she didn't seem to know much about anything, no reflection on her but that is how it was. She was mainly looking at my throat to see if I had strep. She did say it could be allergies going down the back of my throat but I've never ever in my life had this before without any other symptoms. She was maybe grasping at straws. When I posted this I did this from my phone and I was unaware it was posted to this "lounge" so I don't know what is even suppose to go on here so if this is the wrong place, I apologize.

She did suggest I see the "Dr" for this and so tomorrow I see the real Dr. about this and see what he has to say. I have not had any burping or belching or tummy distress or anything but this annoying and very painful sore throat with some headaches but not much to even mention. Ah well I guess time will tell what happens with this and I hope it just goes away on its own.

As for my Dr. even believing in this prediabetes that is just a joke. By the time I got to this new clinic I had gotten my a1c down to the 5.8 and my BG's were not too bad but because my Dr. didn't see any of the old numbers he didn't believe I had any problems...because all he seen was my new numbers. I'm seeing a totally different Dr. tomorrow and one I hope believes in what I say.

Well I had GERD and when the acid from your stomach comes up in your throat there is no doubt what happened. I really doubt that there could be enough reflux to cause a sore throat without you being very aware of it but I am basing that only on my experience. I was given medication for it and have had no problem since with any heartburn or GERD and because of other peoples success on the lchf diet I will try to do without it sometime in the future but I have already cut out two meds. so I will wait a while. I am afraid that people, including doctors, that don't understand the science behind lchf are going to blame it for a lot of things. Change takes time and we have been led to believe in a diet that was based more on supposition than science.

I really didn't think that I have gerd our acid reflux, I think she didn't know what else to do so referred me to the real Dr. Which means another copay. I looked on the internet too and found nothing to collaborate with her decision

As Wally says, there's no doubt what's happening when you have reflux, and if you aren't burping/belching at all, then I have to think there's something else going on. I also agree with VeeJay that the medical professionals will blame LCHF for just about anything, since they don't approve and aren't inclined to research it.

Good luck with the doc tomorrow!

Thanks shanny and I decided not to even bring up the lchf this time, I've learned.

Good decision, puppy! They find it easy and sometimes valid to trust the patient to lead them to the problem. See how it goes...

Good luck,
