What is GORD?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD/GERD) occurs when stomach acid escapes from the stomach and rises into the esophagus, commonly referred to as 'reflux' or 'acid reflux.'

All About Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD)

GERD is a chronic condition, and if left untreated, it can lead to more severe complications, such as esophageal damage or Barrett's esophagus, a precancerous condition.


Occasional heartburn due to acid reflux is experienced by nearly everyone at some point. However, GORD is defined by reflux happening more than twice a week, potentially resulting in more significant health issues and negatively influencing overall well-being and quality of life.


GORD can impact individuals of all ages, including children, but it predominantly affects individuals over 40.

Symptoms

Typical indications and manifestations of GORD encompass:

A sensation of burning in the chest (heartburn), commonly occurring after meals and potentially intensifying at night or when lying down.
Return of food or sour liquid into the throat (regurgitation).
Pain located in the upper abdomen or chest.
Difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia).
Feeling as though there's a lump in the throat.

In instances of nighttime acid reflux, additional symptoms might involve

Persistent coughing.
Inflammation of the vocal cords (laryngitis).
Onset or exacerbation of asthma symptoms.

Causes

GORD emerges due to the recurrent occurrence of acid reflux, where stomach acid or non-acidic substances flow back from the stomach.


When you swallow, a circular muscle band encircling the lower part of your esophagus (known as the lower esophageal sphincter) temporarily relaxes to permit the passage of food and liquids into your stomach, after which the sphincter closes once more.


However, if this sphincter fails to relax or becomes weakened, stomach acid can backtrack into your esophagus. This continual backflow of acid leads to irritation of the esophageal lining, frequently resulting in inflammation.

Treatment

Lifestyle and dietary changes are necessary. Sometimes, medications such as antacids or surgery, in case symptoms do not improve. The goal of the GORD treatment is to strengthen the anti-reflux barrier.

How Can We Help?

Acid reflux, heartburn, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) are prevalent. The symptoms can cause significant discomfort, and if not addressed, they may result in ulcers that are painful or prone to bleeding, as well as esophageal cancer.


Various medications can be obtained over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription to manage acid reflux. Nonetheless, if your symptoms persistently resurface, you should schedule a consultation with a healthcare expert.


The positive aspect is that we're here to assist, regardless of whether you're already undergoing treatment, have never received treatment previously, or are considering modifying your current treatment plan.
