The 5 individuals described in these case reports experienced resolution of GERD symptoms after self-initiation of a low-carbohydrate diet. Their observations suggest that carbohydrate restriction may have contributed to their symptom relief. However, this conclusion is confounded by concurrent reduction of caffeine intake in 3 of the individuals and reduction of acidic and high-osmolal food intake in all of them. Observations from some of these individuals suggest that carbohydrates may be a… 
A Very Low-Carbohydrate Diet Improves Gastroesophageal Reflux and Its Symptoms
TLDR
It is suggested that a very low-carbohydrate diet in obese individuals with GERD significantly reduces distal esophageal acid exposure and improves symptoms.
Designing of a dietary regimen and lifestyle guidelines for people who are prone to gastro esophageal reflux disease
TLDR
The results show that the prescribed diet resulted in reduced weight and disappearance of most GERD symptoms, which has shown the potential of the diet in eliminatingGERD symptoms.
Diet and reflux
TLDR
A systematic review of available studies evaluating the association of dietary factors with reflux symptoms evaluated in series and population, pH monitoring and esophageal manometry found none of these factors is associated with an unequivocal protective or deleterious effect.
Review article: the patient with gastro‐oesophageal reflux disease – lifestyle advice and medication
TLDR
The current concepts of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that need to be considered whilst caring for patients with GERD and GERD complications are summarized.
GERD: How to Have a Better Day
TLDR
There is now emerging evidence that impairment of sleep quality of patients with GERD is an important factor for the reduced quality of life in these patients, and medication is usually necessary for symptom control.
The effect of dietary carbohydrate on gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Lifestyle Intervention in Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
Low-Carbohydrate Diets: A Matter of Love or Hate
TLDR
The aim of this review is to define the concept of LChD and to explain their clinical effects in the short and long term, their influence on metabolism, and the opinion of nutrition or health authorities.
Evaluation of Temperament–based Diet Intervention on the Symptoms of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
TLDR
Considering temperament in diet can play an important role in improving the symptoms in patients with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

TLDR
The mechanisms of damage in GERD are investigated, the existing data on unconventional forms of treatment, including melatonin, acupuncture, botanicals, and dietary interventions are explored, and the current standard of care for proton pump inhibitors are ineffective.

TLDR
The main features of the two diseases,Cow's milk allergy and gastroesophageal reflux, are reviewed, stressing the aspects in common between them.
Symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux: Incidence and precipitating factors
TLDR
Fried foods, “spicy” foods, and alcohol were the most common precipitating factors and age, sex, or hospitalization did not significantly affect incidence.
Are adverse food reactions linked to irritable bowel syndrome?
TLDR
Whether adverse reactions to foods are a key factor in exacerbating IBS symptoms or whether dietary manipulation is a valid treatment option is unclear.
Assessment of Outcome After Antireflux Surgery
TLDR
In reflux patients, results show poor values in untreated patients contrasted with normal values in patients who have had optimal medical treatment and patients who has had surgery, thereby adding important information concerning the treatment outcome.
A comparison of high and low fat meals on postprandial esophageal acid exposure.
Fatty foods have been identified as precipitating factors in symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux (GER). A fat meal has also been found to decrease lower esophageal sphincter pressure (LESP) in normal
Prevalence of adverse reactions to food in patients with gastrointestinal disease
TLDR
It is suggested that allergic reactions to food antigens may be a causative factor in a subgroup of patients with inflammatory and functional gastrointestinal disease.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease.
TLDR
Strong evidence suggests that both reflux-induced asthma and otolaryngological complications can occur without esophagitis, and the risk of adenocarcinoma arising from Barrett metaplasia dictates that if heartburn is refractory to treatment, chronic (>5 years), or accompanied by dysphAGia, odynophagia, or bleeding, it should be evaluated by endoscopy.
