Hi,

I am Dr. Monika Jain, Gastroenterologist. Aaj hum baat krenge gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Is disease ko acidity bhi bola jata hai. Ye problem 10% population ko effect krti hai. Iske symptoms hai muh me khatta pani ana, stomach and neck burning, belch and pain in chest. Patient ka frequently sore throat ka problem hona, asthma, excessive saliva. Kayi baar is problem se patient ko dental problem bhi ho jata hai. Kuch logon ki awaz change hone lag jati hai.

Endoscopy se hum ise diagnose kr skte hain. Patient ko lifestyle changes ki jrurat hoti hai. Patient ko spicy food nhi khana hai. Excess intake of soft drinks, tea and coffee. Chocolate, snacks, junk food and peppermint se bhi ye problem hoti hai. Alcohol and smoking se bhi ye problem hoti hai. Dinner krte hi sona nhi chaiye. 2-3 hours ka gap hona jruri hai. Obese people agar apna weight lose kren to unki acidity ki problem kafi hadd tak solve ho jati hai. Hmare paas kafi achi medicines hain jinse ye problem easily solve ho skti hai.

Bhut jyada acidity hone se food pipe me zakham ho jata hai, vomiting with blood hota hai. Patient ko dysphagia ka problem ho jata hai. Islia iska timely treatment len. Aise patient ko ek time pe jyada nhi khana chaiye. Patient ka agar bhut lambe time tak stomach empty rhen to uski problem badh jati hai. Frequently small meal can help patient.

Thank you.
