Has calcium citrate helped anyone?
It is supposed to help close the LES. But it is my understanding people with LPR don't have a problem with their LES. It is the UES that gives us problems.
I've been wanting to know how does the reflux get past the UES if not passing through the LES first?
No idea. But I read people with LPR don't have a problem with the LES.

I took CC for a couple of months but never noticed any difference. I'm really awful with keeping up daily medications/pills so I've fallen of the wagon. I should keep taking it anyway because I avoid most dairy products.
