  • Going on a retreat

    Hi,
    I;ll be away where meals are prepared. I heard mention of prelief. Will that help?
    Also, what about digestive aids? Know of any great ones that help.
    I eat small meals, but hours later feel like it's still in my throat.

    In most instances, if you let them know ahead of time, there can be accommodations for special diets --- I suggest you check that out. And Prelief can be a help if you take it with your first bite at a meal. It doesn't allow me to ignore my diet restrictions, but I keep it on hand in case I'm not sure about a food or drink.

      Prelief will help reduce acid in foods that could irritate your stomach and/or bladder. .... but you said something here that we don't associate with IC... that you eat small meals but, hours later, you still feel like it's in your throat. Sounds like you're having some gastroparesis (delayed stomach emptying) which I happen to have too. You might want to google it to learn more. What really helped calm my stomach down was to avoid foods which are hard to digest... specifically leafy greens. Once I stopped those, my stomach did much much better.

        Do you take a digestive aid or enzymes?
        Also, do those with IC eat their dinner early? I find I do my best if I eat a main meal by 3ish and then by 6ish have some crackers with almond butter and also stop drinking water by 6pm. Just wondering if this is normal or like you mentioned, something else going on.

          I'm not one who has a problem with eating in the evening, but my husband has a hiatus hernia and it's best if food has time to leave his stomach before he goes to bed --- we usually eat at around 5:00 pm. And yes, it helps me with night time frequency if I stop liquids at least two hours before bedtime.
