Have any of you been diagnosed with this? I went to the otolaryngologist last week, with laryngitis, and that's what he said I have. I want to get a second opinion, though. All the literature about this disease says you should not eat at bedtime. I often do, because I'm a Type I diabetic and don't want my BG to drop dangerously during the night. Sometimes it does, and my CGMS alerts me, and then I need a snack. I suppose eating DURING the night is even worse (he put me on generic Zantac at bedtime). Well, I Googled this topic, and DIABETES SELF-MANAGEMENT popped up with an article about GERD, and it says its common among people who have had diabetes a long time. I've had it 37.5 years, and have no complications. Well, let me know, please, if any of you has had this diagnosis, AND how did they make this diagnosis? Did they give you a test? This doc. simply looked into my larynx. Thanks!
