Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Hi,

Unfortunately, PPIs are one of the most common causes of MC.

Incidentally, do you know what your vitamin D level is? Low vitamin D may be a cause of acid reflux/GERD, because we have found that large doses of vitamin D (5,00010,000 IU) daily can help to resolve acid reflux/GERD problems. IOW, by taking vitamin D, and avoiding foods that promote reflux (such as acidic foods, alcohol, peppermint, garlic, onion, chocolate, caffeine, spicy foods, etc.), and avoiding eating a few hours before bedtime, and avoiding sleeping on your right side, GERD can be controlled without any medications.

I notice that many of the foods that I listed are already on your list of food intolerances, so I believe that we are definitely on the right track here. You may just need to fine-tune your treatment program slightly.

He appears to be familiar with the situation, because he's definitely right almost all of us are low, unless we take a vitamin D supplement. A lot of docs are reluctant to order tests for vitamin D, for some reason or other. That's why some of us order a test ourselves. I buy test kits at the link below (the test is sponsored by The Vitamin D council), and so do several other members of this board.

The test involves pricking the end of a finger and squeezing out a drop or 2 of blood onto a sample collection card, and after allowing time to dry, sending the card back to the lab for testing. From what I can find out, these tests are among the most accurate vitamin D tests available. Some of the tests used by doctors for years (from a certain other lab), have been shown to be unreliable, unfortunately.
