Some of you may have seen me on here already. I have previously suffered with severe gastritis caused by H pylori. After nearly 2 years I am pretty much healed although I had to learn a lot on the way and change my diet and lifestyle.
One thing that I noted from keeping a food diary was that any food with high potassium in it really irritated my stomach. It took me a while to make the link, but I noted that after eating bananas or drinking coconut water my stomach would be sore and flare up.
It took about a day or so settle down afterwards. I cut out all high potassium foods from my diet and I didn't get anymore irritation.
I wondered if any other gastritis or ulcer sufferers had the same ? There isn't much about it on the Internet and I just wondered if it was me or is it common for potassium to irritate gastritis?
