GERD is an acronym for gastroesophageal reflux disease. It occurs when the stomach acid in a person’s stomach leaks, or “refluxes,” up through the lower esophagus. It can be caused by a hiatal hernia, obesity, pregnancy, smoking, alcohol consumption, and certain medications.

GERD sufferers will typically experience symptoms like heartburn and chest pain after eating. It can be managed with lifestyle changes and treatment options like medication or surgery. In this article, we will explore the causes of GERD in more detail.

GERD can be managed with lifestyle changes and medication. If a person experiences GERD symptoms, they should first try to make some changes to their lifestyle. This may include avoiding triggers like caffeine, alcohol, and smoking, as well as eating smaller meals and staying upright after eating.

If lifestyle changes do not help, then medication may be necessary. There are several types of medication available to treat GERD, including over-the-counter antacids and prescription medications. In some cases, surgery may also be necessary to correct GERD.

GERD surgery is typically performed laparoscopically and is known as a fundoplication. This surgery involves wrapping the upper part of the stomach around the lower esophagus to help keep acid from leaking up. GERD can be a very serious condition, so it is important to seek medical help if you are experiencing any symptoms.

Surgery can be a very effective way to manage symptoms, and many people find that it helps them feel better quickly.
