Consumption Of Milk In People With GERD?
I want to ask. I have been diagnosed with GERD for 3 months. Already taking medication, have tried to maintain diet and mindset. But I want to ask. I often have pain in the upper right chest beside the breasts almost to the middle of the chest, sometimes also pain under the breasts, also pain under the armpits. Not accompanied by a hot sensation. But the search is extraordinary. Sometimes comes the pain sometimes goes away. Is the pain due to GERD or not y? Because I’m afraid. I want to ask another question, is milk safe for GERD sufferers? I happen to consume low-fat milk too.
Thank you Mila for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, GERD or acid reflux disease is a disease caused by the increase in stomach acid into the esophagus caused by various factors such as food, lying position, body weight, or other conditions that can affect the increase in asthma. stomach. In this situation various symptoms can arise such as:
burning or pain in the chest
- mouth tastes sour
- discomfort in the stomach
- nauseous vomit
- There may be tightness
Regarding drinking low-fat milk, low-fat milk is the recommended milk for people with GERD, because low-fat milk has little effect on the increase in stomach acid because of its low fat content and the milk itself can function as a buffer against stomach acid. However, the consumption of milk needs to be limited like other foods because eating or drinking too much can also aggravate the GERD condition experienced. As for the problem of chest pain, it can be caused by various causes apart from GERD, where other conditions can include:
- chest muscle problems
- the influence of the menstrual cycle
- a breast lump
- heart problems
- breathing problems
In this condition, if you feel doubtful or worried, you should be able to go back to the doctor concerned so that you can re-evaluate it to confirm the current condition you are experiencing.
