Question by  Losar (21)

Is there a certain diet I should follow with a hiatal hernia?

I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia. Are there dietary restrictions I should consider?

Diet restrictions for people with a hiatal hernia vary from person to person. You should avoid foods that will give you heartburn and you should avoid alcohol. What may be most effective is changing your eating habits; eat smaller meals and try not to eat before bedtime.
