The effect of achalasia on the diet of patients and their spouses was investigated using a validated questionnaire. The discordance between the diet of the patients and their respective spouses was compared with matched controls. There is no statistically significant difference between the discordance of case couples and control couples. Patients with achalasia, and their spouses, eat a normal diet.
