Acid Reflux, Heartburn & YOU

GERD is short for gastroesophageal reflux disease. It’s a chronic disease of the digestive system. In GERD, acids and other contents from the stomach frequently run back up and irritate the sensitive tissues of your esophagus.

Most people have heartburn or indigestion from time to time. It’s usually a case of overindulgence or that extra spicy sauce you love so much. But if you feel that burning sensation in your chest more than twice a week, you might have GERD.In the United States, approximately 20 percent of the population has GERD, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
