Stomach Disease

There’s no need to suffer in silence, though. Here’s a top-to-bottom look at nine of the most prevalent digestive conditions, symptoms, and the most effective treatments available. If you suspect you have one of these issues, don't delay in speaking with a healthcare professional.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

When stomach acid backs up into your esophagus — a condition called acid reflux — you may feel a burning pain in the middle of your chest. It often occurs after meals or at night, says Neville Bamji, MD, a clinical instructor of medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a gastroenterologist with New York Gastroenterology Associates.

While it’s common for people to experience acid reflux and heartburn once in a while, having symptoms that affect your daily life or occur at least twice each week could be a sign of GERD, a chronic digestive disease that affects 20 percent of Americans, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). If you experience persistent heartburn, bad breath, tooth erosion, nausea, pain in your chest or upper part of your abdomen, or have trouble swallowing or breathing, see your doctor.

What is acid peptic disease?

Acid peptic disease – commonly called APD – includes a number of conditions. All these conditions are the result of damage from acid and peptic activity in gastric secretions. APD occurs when the acid starts irritating the inner cells (mucosal layer) of the stomach. Acid peptic diseases mostly affect the oesophagus, stomach, and duodenum.

Factors that lead to acid peptic disorder

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • NSAIDs including aspirin
  • Citrus or acidic fruits
  • Chocolate, caffeine, and alcohol
  • Greasy, fatty, spicy, and fried foods
  • Garlic, onions, and mint flavourings
  • Drugs, such as aspirin and types of steroids
  • Helicobacter pylori
