Reflux Disease (GERD) Treatment for My Hubby


It's been several days that my hubby has been complaining about his stomach . I thought it was a hyperacidity but it is a GERD Disease. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which the esophagus becomes irritated or inflamed because of acid backing up from the stomach. The esophagus or food pipe is the tube stretching from the throat to the stomach. When food is swallowed, it travels down the esophagus.

We went to the doctor today to checked him up and his doctor recommends lifestyle and dietary changes. His treatment must decrease the amount of reflux or reducing damage to the lining of his esophagus from refluxed materials.

Aside from avoiding to eat fried and fatty foods, he has to avoid drinking beverages that can irritate and damaged his esophageal lining such as soft drinks, coffee, citrus fruits and juices, tomato products, and pepper.The doctor prescribed an antacid to help neutralizes the acid on his stomach. This therapy is needed for a short time while he makes his gradual changes in his lifestyle.
