Acid Reflux/GORD

Acid reflux or gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is the condition wherein stomach acid rises into the oesophagus (gullet).  This may lead to a burning sensation in the chest and occasionally an acidic taste in the throat.  It may be triggered by a lot of things which may include large meals, acidic food, rich food, smoking, alcohol, and being overweight.

Causes of Acid Reflux/GORD

• Smoking

• Alcohol

• Caffeine

• Obesity

• Fatty Meals

• Pregnancy

• Stress

Available treatment

The most common treatment is antacids which neutralize the stomach acids.  Other methods include histamine blockers which are stronger than antacids but lasts longer.  For people who experience repeated episodes, Lansoprazole or Omeprazole may be taken for a few days and relieves the symptoms.

Medications
