"Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic condition characterized by acid flowing back up the esophagus from the stomach. It affects an estimated 18-28 percent of adults in North America.
COMMON SYMPTOMS OF GERD
Regurgitation or sour taste in mouth
Globus sensation in throat
What and how you eat can contribute to symptoms of GERD. Some foods may relax the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) allowing stomach contents to come back up the esophagus and even up to the throat. Other foods may result in delayed stomach emptying, which, combined with a relaxed LES, can lead to acid reflux. Some foods may even increase acid production in the stomach.
FOODS THAT CAN LEAD TO GERD SYMPTOMS:
Garlic and onion
Caffeine including coffee and tea
Fatty foods can relax the LES and delay stomach emptying by triggering the release of the hormone cholecystokinin (CCK). CCK keeps fatty foods in the stomach for longer to aid in their digestion, but this increases the risk of acid reflux. Avoiding fried and greasy foods and focusing on healthier forms of fat can help reduce the total amount of fat a person eats while still including this important nutrient in their diet. Although these foods can worsen symptoms of GERD, they are not guaranteed triggers for everyone."
