Relationship Of Stomach Acid With Chest X-ray Results?
Assalamu’alaykum, Good Afternoon Doctor,
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Your x-ray results indicate an enlargement of the heart. Enlargement of the heart can be caused by various possibilities, including:
high blood pressure
certain genetic diseases
heart valve disease
infection of the heart
excessive alcohol use
Disturbances in the stomach (including gastric acid disease) will not cause enlargement of the heart. Enlargement of the heart also will not cause the symptoms found in stomach acid disease.
Because this disorder is structural in nature, the enlarged heart cannot be treated anymore and will not shrink to normal size again (unless a heart transplant is performed). Herbal medicine or medical drugs also will not make an enlarged heart can shrink again. Therefore, therapy for heart enlargement itself is more focused on treating the cause, so the cause of your heart enlargement must be found first. Consult directly with a cardiologist for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
