Patients with confirmed nonerosive gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are not at greater risk for esophageal cancer compared with the general population and are unlikely to need additional endoscopic monitoring for cancer, new research suggests.
Consistent users of positive airway pressure had reduced nocturnal gastroesophageal reflux after 2 years of treatment.
There was an overall increased risk for esophageal adenocarcinoma among those in the surgery vs. medication groups.
A treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can also reduce night-time heartburn, coughing and wheezing according to a study published in ERJ Open Research.
Research on the relationship between apples and acid reflux is still evolving. However, red apples may help ease symptoms, while more acidic green apples may worsen them.
People who take acid reflux medications called proton pump inhibitors for four-and-a-half years or more may have a higher risk of dementia compared to people who do not take these medications, according to new research published in Neurology. This study does not prove that acid reflux drugs cause dementia; it only shows an association.
Hormone therapy use was associated with 29% higher odds for GERD among postmenopausal women. Estrogen and progestogen use were both significantly directly associated with GERD.
Pineapple is an acidic fruit. For some people, eating acidic foods worsens acid reflux. However, pineapple also contains an enzyme that some believe could help with digestion.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is when contents of your stomach persistently move back up into your esophagus.
A new study led by researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center provides a deeper understanding of the evolution of the tumor microenvironment during gastric cancer progression. Highlights of the study, published today in Cancer Cell, include a link between multicellular communities and clinical outcomes as well as a potential new therapeutic target.
