GERD can cause complications if ignored and not treated properly

On this occasion, Ari also explained what factors could increase the risk of GERD. Apparently, the factors were so diverse.

“Several risk factors that can increase the risk of GERD are obesity, hiatal hernia, pregnancy, delayed gastric emptying and scleroderma,” said Ari.

A hiatal hernia is a condition when part of the stomach expands into the chest area through the diaphragm. In addition, Ari explained that GERD can also be triggered by daily lifestyle.

“Such as smoking, eating large portions of food at once, eating too late, eating fatty or fried foods, consuming caffeinated drinks or foods, and certain medications such as aspirin,” he said.
