|Dear Rakesh Jhani
To prevent heartburn, avoid foods and beverages that may trigger your symptoms. For most people, these include:
Citrus fruits and juices
Spicy or fatty foods
Full-fat dairy products
If other foods regularly give you heartburn, avoid those foods, too.
Also, try the following changes for your eating habits and lifestyle:
Avoid bending over or exercising just after eating
Avoid garments or belts that fit tightly around your waist
Do not lay down having a full stomach. For instance, avoid eating within Two to three hours of bedtime.
Do not smoke.
Eat smaller meals.
Lose weight if you are overweight.
Sleep together with your head raised about 6 inches. Do this by tilting your whole bed, or by using a wedge beneath your body, not just with normal pillows.
Over-the-counter antacids can be utilized after meals and also at bedtime, although they do not last lengthy. Common side effects of antacids include diarrhea or constipation.
Other over-the-counter and prescription drugs can treat GERD. They work more slowly than antacids but give you longer relief. Your pharmacist, doctor, or nurse can tell you how to get these drugs.
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are the strongest acid inhibitors: omeprazole, esomeprazole, iansoprazole, rabeprazole, and pantoprazole
H2 antagonists: famotidine, cimetidine, ranitidine, and nizatidine
Promotility agents: metoclopramide
Anti-reflux operations Nissen fundoplication may be an option for patients whose symptoms don't disappear with change in lifestyle and drugs. Heartburn and other symptoms should improve after surgery, however, you may still have to take drugs for your heartburn. There's also new therapies for reflux that can be performed through an endoscope.
