  • I think however, there are acidity conditions that persist. This is more known as a chronic acidity condition. Stress and underlying medical conditions are usually the cause of chronic stomach acidity.

  • I used to have GERD (acid reflux) and was on Nexium for it. My GERD turned out to be due to me having hyperinsulinemia (excess insulin). Now that Im on an extremely low carb diet (note carbs are in so many different things), I dont get the acid reflux anymore at all and are off those meds. The body produces insulin when one has carbohydrates... hence I think you should get your insulin levels tested (2 hr glucose tolerance test with insulin)
