Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) develops when stomach acid rushes back and forth into the tube linking the mouth to the stomach (esophagus). The lining of the esophagus can be irritated by the backwash (acid reflux).
Many people suffer from acid reflux on occasion. However, chronic acid reflux might lead to GERD if it occurs frequently.
Consuming specific foods
Often drinking caffeinated beverages
Esophagitis is an irritation and inflammation of the lining of the esophagus that is caused by stomach acid.
Barrett's esophagus is a condition that happens to about 10% of people who have had GERD for a long time.
When the lining of the esophagus gets hurt, it can scar, which makes the esophagus smaller. Immediately undergo gastroesophageal reflux disease treatment to avoid severe complications.
Your acid reflux gastroenterologist puts an endoscope, a tiny, flexible tube with a light and camera, down your throat for analysis.
The esophagus is monitored to determine when and for how long stomach acid regurgitates there.
After drinking a gritty substance that covers and fills the lining of your digestive tract, X-rays are taken.
This test examines the rhythmic esophageal muscular contractions that occur during swallowing.
This test is performed to check for esophageal injury.
I had been suffering from severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) for many years. My symptoms began when I was a teenager. I would get heartburn after eating, and it would be painful. Over the years, the heartburn became more frequent, and the pain became more intense. I consulted Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, and my treatment was quite smooth, and now I am completely fine. Thank you so much for the treatment.
I recently came to Sri Ramakrishna Hospital for a follow-up on my GERD treatment. I have been impressed with the care I have received. The doctor and staff have been friendly, respectful, and prompt. I have never waited more than 15 minutes to see a doctor, and the office staff has been equally efficient.
