If you have GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is it wise to drink honey and warm milk together?
Of course. But Why?: Gastric=stomach & upper 2/3 lined with cells which secrete hydrochloric acid (inhibits bacterial growth) under brain control.

When lots of acid present, then esophagus damaged over time; can eventually promote esophagus cancer. ...Read more

Gave up diet soda and have IBS and Gerd. Am
On 60 mg dexilant (dexlansoprazole) . Can I get heartburn from drinking iced tea? And I take my pill at night .
GERD : Good for you for giving up diet sodas! It is possible to have worse reflux from iced tea, but it is usually from the caffeine in the tea. If you're drinking caffeine free tea, it usually does not make GERD worse. As for the DexIlant, (dexlansoprazole) is best to take it 20 to 30 minutes before a meal. I would not recommend taking it at bedtime. Good luck. ...Read more

30 y old.I ate a lot of fried food 2 days ago and I have GERD since yesterday.Do I need to take medicine?or I can eat or drink something to remove it?
How about a lot less: Alcohol (etoh) empties rapidly from the stomach. Alcohol dehydrogenase in the stomach lining contributes to etoh metabolism. Etoh can not be stored by the body & obligatory oxidation takes place predominantly in the liver. 1 gram etoh gives 7 empty calories that provide only energy with no nutritional value. Poor diet (protein-calorie, choline, folate (folic acid) deficiency) contributes to liver toxicity. ...Read more
