Dietary Tips for Swallowing and Esophageal Disorders
Certain foods can trigger your symptoms. Keep a food diary to discover what foods you should or shouldn't eat. Common food triggers include:
- Citrus juice or fruits
- Spicy foods
- Fatty or fried food
Avoid smaller meals and avoid lying down for at least three hours after eating. Sleep with the head of your bed elevated, as this can help prevent stomach acid from flowing into the esophagus.
