GASTRIC REFLUX

 

Gastric reflux is much known in medical field as gastro esophageal reflux disease. It is the back-flow of gastric or duodenal contents into the esophagus. It is known to be normal in adult and children. Excessive reflux occurs because of incompetent lower esophageal sphincter or a motility disorder. Manifestations may include pyrosis (burning sensation in the esophagus), dyspepsia (indigestion), regurgitation, dysphasia (difficulty swallowing) hyper salivation and esophagitis (inflammation of esophagus). The symptoms may mimic those of heart attack. Management may include eating a lof-fat diet, avoid caffeine, tobacco, beer, milk, foods containing peppermint, carbonated drinks and avoid eating or drinking 2 hrs before bedtime. If medical intervention failed, then surgical intervention may be necessary.
