When I eat much food or when I eat something made up of wheat I really get my stomach problem I dnt knw what is going on with me I can only guess that I may be suffering from any disease so is there any solution for this?
Heartburn results from a backup of acid-containing stomach contents into your food-pipe.
Here are tips for prevention:
• Eat smaller meals
Too much food at one time expands your stomach and puts pressure on a band of muscle that helps keep food and acid from backing up into your food pipe (oesophagus).
• Avoid alcohol, fatty foods, chocolate, spearmint and peppermint
These foods can relax your lower oesophageal sphincter and promote upward flow of stomach contents.
• Don’t eat before sleeping
Wait two to three hours after eating before lying down. This allows enough time for the stomach to empty and increased stomach acid to taper off.
• Stop smoking
The nicotine from cigarettes can relax your lower oesophageal sphincter, allowing acid to flow back into your oesophagus.
• Lose excess weight
Lose excess weight if you’re overweight. This will help reduce the pressure your abdomen puts on your stomach when you’re lying down.
• Wear loose clothes
A tight belt or waistband can put pressure on your stomach and push acid into your oesophagus, causing discomfort.
• Elevate the head of your bed
Raise the head of your bed four to six inches. This helps keep stomach acid in your stomach, where it belongs.
