Gastro esophageal reflux disease

Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a digestive disorder occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the tube connecting your mouth and stomach (esophagus).   The lining of your esophagus can be irritated by backwash (acid reflux). From time to time many people experience acid reflux.  In most cases, GERD can be relieved through lifestyle changes and diet; however, some people may require medication or surgery. Due to a condition called hiatal hernia doctors believe that some people suffer from GERD. GERD affects people of all ages—from infants to older adults. The severity of GERD depends on LES dysfunction as well as the type and amount of fluid brought up from the neutralizing effect of saliva and the stomach. The symptoms of uncomplicated GERD are primarily: regurgitation and nausea, heartburn (sometimes interpreted as chest pain),bad breath, chest pain, vomiting, breathing problems, and wearing away of the teeth. Risk factors include obesity, pregnancy, smoking, hiatus hernia, and taking certain medicines.
