Hi sir, my self mallesh. What causes gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in infants and children?
and also gastroesophageal reflux disease cause ulcers?
Hi Mallesh garu, Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the ring of muscle between the oesophagus and stomach. This ring is called the lower esophageal sphincter. If you have it, you may get heartburn or acid indigestion. Although common, the disease often is unrecognized and its symptoms misunderstood. This is unfortunate because GERD is generally a treatable disease, though serious complications can result if it is not treated properly. Heartburn in infants and young children is usually a sign of gastroesophageal reflux. That’s a condition that occurs when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus. According to some estimates, about 2% of children ages 3 to 9, and 5% of children ages 10 to 17, have heartburn. The baby’s spit-up is stronger, often repetitive, and babies may also experience the discomfort of heartburn. This can be seen with fussiness during feeding. In very young children, the cause of heartburn is usually an immature digestive tract. In older children, risks include being overweight, exposure to secondhand smoke, and eating certain types of foods. With a proper homeopathic treatment those symptoms can be cured. Homeopathy, on the other hand, works gently to minimize the symptoms of GERD and treats the root cause of the problem. Homeopathy can be of great help to those who do not show much improvement even after lifestyle modifications. Some of the commonly indicated homeopathic medicines for GERD are Natrum Phos, Iris Versicolor, Robinia, Nux Vomica, Phosphorus, Lycopodium, Carbo Veg, etc. Symptoms and medicines also vary from patient to patient. Better to take doctor’s advice before taking the medicines. Please call on +918885920000 to know more details about GERD. A Healthy outside starts from the inside.
