Hi Henge,

Firstly do not be ruled by diet and food lists. Most of them propagate myths and misconceptions.
Your stomach produces strong acid. The acidity of food entering it makes virtually no difference. If the stomach becomes too alkali it will produce more acid and vice versa.

It's not so much what we eat as how we eat that's important. Having said that, keep a food diary and see whether you have any particular trigger foods to avoid. (For me it was pastry. Tomatoes in any form have never been a problem.)
The myths grow anecdotally. Someone says a particular food was a trigger for them and others think it must affect them also.

Spicy foods are a point in mind. We all experience a burn at the back of the throat when eating a hot curry. If you have oesophagitis, you may also feel a burn as it passes over the affected area - in the same way as pouring lemon juice over a cut will hurt but not harm. (My charity has an annual curry evening instigated by our senior gastroenterologist. Qick advert. Anyone within range of Southampton, our next one is on (heart)Burn's night, 25th January, for just ú15.)

As many as 50% of those with Barrett's report they have never felt the heartburn that is usually experienced with the acid reflux that caused it.

If you do want a book of recipes that have worked for other acid reflux sufferers, you can download a free copy of our "Cool Food" cookbook
here.

The Prague classification is described at the bottom of this page.
It is composed of a c number, showing the width in centimetres of a cirumferential band, and an m number which shows the maximum extent of any tongues.

Read this page to learn the genesis of your Barrett's.

All the best
Chris

The book is available to peruse as an on-line website or a pdf download from www.DownWithAcid.org.uk
or email me your address and I'll send you a free printed copy, thanks to a grant from Southampton City Council).
Cheers
