Good morning doctor, introduce me duwi.rnI want to ask, can people with stomach acid like me eat soup and lemon? According to the information I got, people with stomach acid can consume lemons, because lemons are alkaline in the stomach.rnPlease explain, doctor, thank you.
Hi Duwi, Thank you for the question.
Acid reflux disease is a condition where stomach acid rises due to the weakening of the muscles at the bottom of the esophagus. This muscle at the bottom of the esophagus normally opens when food and drink enters the stomach and closes again when food and drink is already in the stomach. If this muscle weakens, stomach acid can back up into the esophagus and cause symptoms. Stomach acid disease can be controlled with the right diet. Basically, you should avoid spicy and oily foods and acidic drinks (such as oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit), fizzy drinks, caffeinated drinks, and alcoholic drinks. Lemons are acidic, so consuming lemons can trigger symptoms of acid reflux disease. In addition to maintaining eating and drinking patterns, people with stomach acid are also advised to:
avoid lying down after eating avoid exercising after eating sleep using a higher pillow avoid wearing tight clothing around the abdomen lose weight if excessive avoid smoking Hope this information is useful.
