No gall bladder. would taking " bile acids factors" by jarrow hurt if possibly have non-acid reflux? aka bile reflux?

Wouldn't help: Bile reflux gastritis is caused by inflammation of stomach lining by alkaline bile (a digestive detergent). Antacid meds and acid reducers like Prilosec don't help this, because acid is not the issue. Other meds that coat the stomach and/or prevent back flow from small bowel into the stomach help. Discuss with your doc.
