GERD - Reasons Why You Should Not Ignore The Signs!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, Masters in Evidence Based Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
GERD - Reasons Why You Should Not Ignore The Signs!

Are you experiencing frequent and extended heartburn on a regular basis? This might indicate that you are having gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It is a type of digestive disorder that affects your lower esophageal sphincters. The condition involves the return of the stomach’s content back to your esophagus. Although heartburns are common, GERD involves chronic heartburns, which require an adequate treatment.

Here the some important reasons why you should not ignore the symptoms of GERD:

  1. Esophagitis: In case of GERD, the food, acid and digestive juices flow back from the stomach to the esophagus. This leads to irritation and swelling with time, which is called esophagitis. In case you have acid exposure in your esophagus for a few weeks, inflammation of the lining is indicated. This can be very painful and uncomfortable, making the esophagus more prone to scarring and further erosion.
  2. Esophageal stricture: If esophagitis continues for a long time, scar tissues can lead to the narrowing of the esophagus. This is known as a stricture, which makes swallowing very difficult and painful. Large chunks of food may get stuck and you are more likely to choke while eating or drinking. You may tend to avoid food and water because of esophageal stricture, which may result in weight loss.
  3. Throat and voice problems: Apart from heartburn, several other symptoms may also appear because of GERD. These are called cases of silent reflux where you may not experience heartburn. Instead, other issues are indicated which include voice hoarseness, voice changes, sore throat and chronic coughing.
  4. Breathing problems: If stomach acid is inhaled after regurgitation, the symptoms of asthma and pneumonia may worsen because of GERD. Shortness of breath and breathing difficulties are likely, even without any lung problem.
  5. Tooth decay: When the stomach acids and digestive juices go back to the esophagus and into the mouth, it leaves a sour taste. In case it occurs frequently, it wears away your tooth enamel and results in tooth decay. People experiencing acid reflux induced erosion may be unaware of the damage being caused until it reaches peak stages.
  6. Esophageal ulcers: Stomach acid may result in the wearing away of the esophageal lining, resulting in ulcers and sores. These esophageal ulcers are different from stomach ulcers, which occur from bacteria. Patients with esophageal ulcers may vomit blood, and notice blood in stool. It is usually darker than its usual shade and may have the texture of coffee ground like particles.

It is important for you to visit a doctor immediately after experiencing the symptoms of GERD. This condition may cause severe distress if you let it advance, and hence, early diagnosis and treatment are very important.

The first line of treatment that almost everyone resorts to is that of taking laxatives. It is likely to be any of the most frequently advertised one bought over the counter. It may even be something recommended by an elder in the family. The biggest disadvantage of such laxatives is that they are habit forming. Once you start takingthem, you cannot leave them. Otherwise, you will not be able to evacuate your bowels in a satisfactory manner. Here, Homeopathy offers the biggest advantage. The homeopathic medicines do not work as laxatives. This means that you should not expect them to work as short term quick fixes. Rather, they work to improve the digestive system which has lost its proper and smooth functioning. The peristaltic movement of the intestines, which is responsible for pushing out the waste matter is often compromised in patients who are constipated. Homeopathy  intends to cure the root cause of constipation. It is therefore natural that these medicines are going to take some time to get things going. Ultimately, it is effective at restoring this peristaltic movement to the normal self You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

All the above are due to hyperacidity. If you are constipated take some medicine for constipation and for reducing acidity, follow food discipline like avoiding spices, chillies and out side food. Take regular and timely meals and donot take full stomach keep atleat 1/4 stomach empty. Take plenty of water a minimum of 2.5 - 3 litres of water throughout the day. Take fibre containing food like cucumber, carrot etc. With each meal. Avoid execissive tea/coffee, if you are taking donot take on empty stomach. Have regular physical activity like morning walk/yoga etc. Follow these and acidity levels will be within permissible limits.

What is meaning of pancreatic amylase and what happens if value is 146. What should I do. What is absolute counts basophil. What happens if it's 0.01.what should I do. Thanks.

B.A.M.S, MD (Ayu.) Kayachikitsa
Ayurveda,
Dear Thanks for raising your concern 1. Pancreatic amylase is a digestive enzyme secreted by pancreas into the small intestine where it begins the chemical process of digestion 2. Normal value in some labs are upto 140U/L whereas in some labs it is in between 23-85U/L [so please double check or consult a qualified doctor/physician near your locality] and high value usually signifies either damage/blockage in the pancreas 3. Basophils are part of white blood cells which take part in strengthening the immunity of the body and low count usually signify either hyperthyroidism, allergic reaction or bacterial infection and since value of basophil count vary from lab to lab kindly consult your doctor for best options.

You should undergo surgery for it. Now a days it has become simple by availability of flexible ureteroscopes which take out stone from urinary passage.
