About

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux, is a long-term condition where stomach contents come back up into the esophagus resulting in either symptoms or complications.Symptoms include the taste of acid in the back of the mouth, heartburn, bad breath, chest pain, vomiting, breathing problems, and wearing away of the teeth. Complications include esophagitis, esophageal strictures, and Barrett's esophagus.Through avoiding certain foods and lifestyle modifications the condition can be managed. With diet lifestyle changes plays major role in the management of symptoms. We can say common things to restrict but the reason for flair up symptoms will vary in person to person. So it is better to manage a food diary to sort out the foods which are initiating the symptoms after consumption. And also person who are suffering from GERD should analyse his/her own lifestyle and make sure they are not doing against the disease condition.

Diet and lifestyle changes often begin with what to avoid. These include things that can trigger or worsen symptoms. Coming up with the appropriate diet and lifestyle changes involves discovering what works best for you. Not all triggers and treatments will affect all people in the same way. Bear in mind that when you eat may be just as important as what you eat. A particular food that causes reflux when eaten 3–4 hours before bedtime may be harmless earlier in the day. Avoid eating immediately before bed. Digestion increases the amount of gastric acid present in the stomach. When you lay down, the ability of the LES to prevent stomach contents from traveling up the esophagus decreases. Occurring together, lots of stomach acid and a reclined position are a recipe for reflux. Timing can vary from individual to individual, but generally, eating a full meal less than three or four hours before bed is not advisable for GERD sufferers.
