I have got COPD as also GERD. I am told that in such cases the reflux of acids can trickle down to the lungs and further aggravate COPD. What should be the remedial measure for it?

2 Doctors Answered
Oral antacids, prokinetic drug, sleeping in 30 degree propped up position and taking small frequent means with lots of salad will help a lot. Also consult a chest physician.

Treat GERD. Eat light and frequently. Keep a gap of 3 hour between dinner and sleep
