I found that my GERD got worse on a VLC diet of under 50g a day. Now I've upped them to to the 75-125g daily range, and my GERD has disappeared. I think it had to do with digestion, as I'm now eating more tubers and squashes which are easier on my... (more)

Doctors know very little about dietary issues with GERD. I highly recommend a book by Norman Robilard "Fast Track Digestion: Heartburn". It goes against CW, but IMHO it's right on. Fat is not the problem, SIBO is. When there's LPR in particular,... (more)

Some reflux is bacterial/digestion related and some is structural. If it is a low stomach acid thing, and the food is spending too much time in the stomach and fermenting before it gets down in the intestines, Betaine supplements can help. He... (more)

No, I don't think water dilutes your stomach acid, it actually promotes your stomach to make more acid.

I figured FODMAPS are the cause of SIBO, acid reflux and constipation. Am I right to make this generalization or could there be other reasons/causes for the combination of symptoms?

I would disagree with that generalization. The main thing with FODMAPs is that they cause gas, not the symptoms you describe.
