Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is the return of gastric acid through the esophageal valve that is not functioning normally. Symptoms experienced such as burning and burning in the back of the chest or solar plexus and can spread to the neck accompanied by nausea and vomiting, or sour taste in the mouth.
GERD treatment consists of avoiding precipitating factors, improving lifestyle, and drug therapy. The standard therapy for GERD is Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI), which includes lansoprazole and omeprazole, high doses for 7-14 days at the recommendation of a doctor. PPI is useful in addition to reducing excessive stomach acid production but can also facilitate the healing process of irritated gastric mucosa.
Lifestyle arrangements that can be done by:
1. Keep your weight within the ideal range.
2. Dinner no later than 2-3 hours before bedtime.
3. Avoid foods that can trigger an increase in gastric asthma such as chocolate, caffeinated beverages, alcohol, soft drinks and fatty, sour, spicy foods.
If you have done lifestyle modification and the drug dose is optimal, but the complaints have not diminished, you should check again with a doctor. Because in severe cases complications can arise such as swelling of the vocal cords, esophageal inflammation, narrowing of the esophagus, to appear pre-cancerous lesions. Therefore do not hesitate to do the examination if symptoms tend to persist.
That's all, hope you can help
