- (gas-tro-eh-sof-a-jee-al ree-flux diz-eez) also called gerd. A common disorder marked by frequent or severe heartburn. The burning feeling occurs when stomach acid flows up into the esophagus.
- A chronic disorder characterized by reflux of the gastric and/or duodenal contents into the distal esophagus. It is usually caused by incompetence of the lower esophageal sphincter. Symptoms include heartburn and acid indigestion. It may cause injury to the esophageal mucosa.
- A disorder characterized by reflux of the gastric and/or duodenal contents into the distal esophagus. It is chronic in nature and usually caused by incompetence of the lower esophageal sphincter, and may result in injury to the esophageal mucosal. Symptoms include heartburn and acid indigestion.
- Retrograde flow of gastric juice (gastric acid) and/or duodenal contents (bile acids; pancreatic juice) into the distal esophagus, commonly due to incompetence of the lower esophageal sphincter.
- The backward flow of stomach acid contents into the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach).
- Your esophagus is the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd) happens when a muscle at the end of your esophagus does not close properly. This allows stomach contents to leak back, or reflux, into the esophagus and irritate it. You may feel a burning in the chest or throat called heartburn. Sometimes, you can taste stomach fluid in the back of the mouth. This is acid indigestion. If you have these symptoms more than twice a week, you may have gerd. Anyone, including infants and children, can have gerd. If not treated, it can lead to more serious health problems. In some cases, you might need medicines or surgery. However, many people can improve their symptoms by
- avoiding alcohol and spicy, fatty or acidic foods that trigger heartburn
- eating smaller meals
- not eating close to bedtime
- losing weight if needed
- wearing loose-fitting clothes

- Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (heartburn)
